Commercial slicer recommendations?
Hi. Anyone have a suggestion on commercial bread slicers? I currently use an old Oliver 711 in my small artisan bakery, and I really need to get something better. We slice about 40 loaves a day, and probably every 5th loaf gets torn up in the slicer. Very frustrating. I keep replacing the blades; I've tried the artisan blades, then the regular blades again. Anyway, I don't know whether to stay with the Oliver and get a newer model, or look for a Berkel or some other brand. Which is the best? I'd love to have something that really slices hard crusty breads (we have a wood-fired brick oven) as well as the softer sandwich loaves.
