Circular blade Guidance
The slicing result highly depends on the polish, the shaping and the quality of the circular blade. Therefore, ritter does offer a variety of circular blades with different slicing features for perfect slicing.
The serrated circular blade is well suited for all kinds of slicing. Both hard and soft food may be cut into appetizing slices.
The smooth ham- and sausage circular blade has a smooth blade edge and is suitable for cutting soft foods. It makes very thin slices. This circular blade is not suitable for cutting baked goods, especially not bread.The circular blade is available in different designs:
The regular standard circular blade is suited for every-day use. This circular blade made of stainless steel is available as serrated circular blade and as smooth ham- and sausage circular blade.
The circular blade made of stainless steel has been polished electrolytically by a special procedure, resulting in an extremely smooth surface and even slicing edge. Thus, the slicing results get even more precise and the circular blade may be cleaned more easily. And in addition, the circular blade gains an elegant look of high polish. The electropolished circular blade is available as serrated circular blade and as smooth ham- and sausage blade.
The circular blade made of stainless steel has been refined with a non-stick coating. The sticking of soft food, such as cheese, is being reduced by the non-stick method of the coating. A further advantage is the more convenient cleaning of the nonstick circular blade. That is why hard foods must not be cut using this circular blade, because the sensitive non-stick coating may be damaged. The non-stick circular blade is only available as smooth ham- and sausage circular blade.
All foods contain natural acids, salts and moisture which can attack the material of the circular blade. Therefore, we recommend that you always wipe the circular blade with a damp cloth once you have finished using it and that you wash it thoroughly in warm soapy water from time to time. Otherwise flash rust can form on stainless steel.
