New Hobart Edge12 Medium-Duty Slicer Delivers Efficiency and Performance in Economical Package

The newest addition to Hobart’s slicer product line, the Edge12 slicer, enhances ease of use, simplifies cleaning and has added protective features. In addition to delivering the durability and consistent quality operators expect from a Hobart Slicer, the Edge12 is certified by the NSF to the revised sanitation standard.

Hobart designed the Edge12 slicer by using input from customers to identify the core features needed in a new medium-duty slicer. As a result, the Edge12 has a more powerful motor, larger product tray and delivers improved slice quality to every phase of operation.

Power to Perform and Easier to Clean

With a ½-horsepower motor and 12-inch-diameter chrome-plated, carbon-steel knife, the Edge12 is ideal for 2.5 hours a day of slicing. A wide carriage span delivers a smoother glide. Moreover, the large product tray and slide-rod make it easier to accommodate larger loaves.

Ensuring the consistent cleanliness of any food machine is always a priority in foodservice and food retail operations. The Edge12 slicer supports users with a sanitary and easy-to-clean anodized aluminum base that helps protect against bacteria growth, a removable carriage system, and a top-mounted, removable and submersible Borazon® sharpening stone. A rear-mounted meat-grip arm is removable for easy cleaning.

In addition, the Edge12 includes added protective features such as the carriage system interlock to ensure the product tray cannot be removed when the gauge plate is open and knife exposed. The gauge-plate interlock requires the gauge plate to be closed before the product tray can be removed for cleaning. Also, the permanently mounted ring guard shields the knife during operation and cleaning.

The Hobart Edge12 Slicer meets the new requirements of the NSF/ANSI 8-2010 standard that was adopted in November 2010, with compliance required by November 2012. For more information about the Edge12 slicer, visit
