Burgers model A

Burgers model A


The flywheel slicer Burgers model A was produced from 1870 to 1885 in the factories of Deventer - Holland - and this creation was the idea of ​​Henricus Burgers a smith who had started in this innovative Dutch factory that produced bicycles and sewing machines and subsequently also motorcycles. The innovative idea with respect to the spiral slicers was a slicer that through the semicircular movement of the trolley using a simple flat blade it was possible to have a cut of the product so that the same during the cutting phase was only touched by the sharp part of the blade therefore a better cut than the one made at the tip of the knife and especially by minimizing contact with the blade and not heating the product does not create organoleptic alterations to the same. The flywheel slicer Burgers Mod. A  was born without the sharpening apparatus, subsequently for the needs of the professional use of the machine itself, H. Burgers patented a sharpener by applying it in the upper part of the shoulder. This slicer was equipped with its original square-shaped pedestal. With this slicer, the story of the flywheel slicer begins. The restoration is carried out in the laboratories of "The World's Best Slicers" respecting the principle of conservation of the parts.
