So You Want to Open a Butcher Shop?…Here’s Some Essential Equipment

Butcher shops make use of specially designed machines to get the most basic tasks completed. Devices such as grinders, slicers, meat saws & pressers are just a few components you will find in a typical butcher shop. However, there are a few specific stainless steel items you will need to complement these products.

In this article, we will show you 5 pieces of stainless steel equipment that are mandatory for any butcher operation. We’ll also give you some relevant IMC products that go hand in hand with your existing or new butcher machines. Let’s jump right in.

Slicer Tables – Enhance Your Meat Slicers

Meat slicers may seem like a simple item, but they can be quite heavy & awkward to operate. Dedicated stainless steel slicer tables are designed to alleviate the cumbersome nature of most meat slicers. Slicer tables are equipped with tray slides & an undershelf for transportation/storage of appliances.

Most are equipped with casters so they can be maneuvered easily around your facility. The bottom line is slicer tables provide you a functioning slicing station with the mobility of a cart.

IMC/Teddy manufactures 2 slicer tables: Models #SMTS & #SMSS

Model #SMTS features a 14-gauge type 300 series stainless steel top with 14-gauge stainless steel slides welded to the legs. The table also features an undershelf, which is also welded to the legs.

Model #SMSS features a 14-gauge type 300 series stainless steel marine work top. The model itself is an open cabinet body. Optional pan slides are adjustable & removable.

Worktables – Prep Areas Made for You

You’ll need an area to prep, cut & season your prime cuts of meat. Worktables are a vital piece of equipment to have to get these important jobs done. Worktables come in a variety of shapes & can be configured to meet your needs. 

Most importantly, it’s wise to choose a worktable that will stand up to the day-in day-out abuse. Worktables with backsplashes & built in integral sinks can be useful to keep liquids at bay.

One special type of worktable called a scale stand can easily accommodate your scales for weighing your meat products.

Compartment Sinks – For Effectively Sanitizing Your Utensils

IMC compartment sinks (Model #SCS) are some of the most versatile products in our catalog. All IMC compartment sinks are made from 14 or 16 gauge type 300 series stainless steel & includes a rolled edge & backsplash for keeping liquids off your walls & floor.

Cabinets – Storage & Organization Made Easy

Finally, you’ll need a secure place to store your other tools & supplies. After all, a butcher shop is full of sharp & potentially dangerous tools that can spell disaster if left out in the open. Cabinets are specially designed to neaten up your area so employees can work safely.

The type of cabinet you will need is entirely dependent on the space given. Wall cabinets (Model #OC) will save floor space, base cabinets (Model #BC) will save wall space & storage cabinets (Model #SC) are the traditional type. Each cabinet can be configured with several options such as sliding doors, extra shelves & door locks.
