Community Involvement

Big Erics recently consulted with the architectural firm Ron Fougere Associates Ltd. to design the layout of the kitchen for the Ronald McDonald House Newfoundland and Labrador in St. John's, NL.  As contractor for the kitchen, we then executed the design by supplying the kitchen equipment whilst making sure all equipment was installed according to manufacturer requirements.

We also provided Ronald McDonald House Newfoundland and Labrador with a donation of $5000 toward their annual operating costs; below, Big Erics' Sales Representative Dan Constantine presenting the cheque to Annette Godsell (Executive Director, RMHNL) and Christine Morgan (Manager, Development & Communications, RMHNL).

Product Highlights

Berkel's Automatic Gravity Feed Slicer

Berkel's Automatic Gravity Feed Slicer, model X13A-PLUS, has many special features.  It boasts a sanitary one piece engineered polymer base and product table which reduces seams and joints while providing an NSF approved surface for easy and effective cleaning.  It has a removable and submersible table mounted sharpener with borazon stones for accurate sharpening and extended life, and a completely mechanical gauge plate interlock.  A variable pitch barrel cam for fine adjustment allows for precise thickness control and the index knob and operating controls are mounted outside of the drip zone for quick and easy access.  The slicer can be automatically operated in three speeds, and with three different stroke lengths.  A permanent ring guard protects the entire non-slicing portion of the knife during slicing and cleaning.  A fence is included with the product table.  An easy to use kick stand supports the slicer for easy access to clean under the slicer.  Its no-volt release requires restarting the slicer after a power interruption.  The slicer also has a few accessories available including a vegetable chute with pusher, a product fence and a slaw tray.

Warranty and service of Berkel products is provided by Hobart Canada.

This Berkel Slicer, model X13A-PLUS, complies with new NSF/ANSI standards!
