piatto5 hand-operated food slicer – Reliable technology equipped with modern tools

The hand-operated food slicer piatto5 has a high degree of truth to material, is largely made of sturdy metal and, thanks to its timeless design, practically fits into any home.

It is operated by a smooth-running crank with a particularly high-quality beech wood handle and therefore no electricity is required. Therefore it can be used everywhere and at any time. The piatto5 is equipped with a guide bracket for better discharge of large, hard foods during the slicing process. The advantage of this is that the evenly cut food does not get in the way or block the continuing "crank operation". The food to be sliced is channelled away from the crank and then lands on the bamboo board provided exactly for this purpose. It perfectly fits into the rails directly under the food slicer - it can be pulled out and used as a rustic serving plate or cutting board, too.

Furthermore, the piatto5 is equipped with four suction feet, which ensure a particularly secure, non-slip stand. You only have to press the device a little bit onto the surface of the desired workstation and the silicone feet will suck themselves tight.

The slice thickness can be adjusted continuously up to approx. 20 mm and the stainless steel carriage can be removed very easily.
