Commercial kitchen equipment, including industrial meat slicers, is available at a variety of online and physical stores, among them Restaurant Depot locations around the United States, as well as the online food and food equipment retailer WebstaurantStore.com. WebstaurantStore.com is available to all consumers, while Restaurant Depot requires customers to verify tax-exempt or reseller status to purchase items.
WebstaurantStore.com offers a broad range of commercial meat slicers ranging in size, style and price. For example, the Avantco SL310 10" meat slicer is available for purchase at $289, as of December 2015, as opposed to the Hobart HS9-1 13" automatic meat slicer, which is offered at $7,888. Both of these are non-decorative, but more decorative, vintage-style meat and specialty slicers are also available, mostly at premium price.
If online ordering is not an option, Restaurant Depot offers a more limited range of meat slicers that customers can purchase and pick up in the store. However, Restaurant Depot only sells to business or non-profit organizations. The range of meat slicers offered at a particular Restaurant Depot varies by location, so contact the store to inquire about the availability of any specific product.
Used restaurant equipment stores are available in most cities. For example, City Food Equipment and Gator Chefs both have locations in the Chicago area that stock meat slicers for online or in-store purchase.
