The 2N1 PowerKnife Solution From Bettcher Industries

Share Article

The 2N1 PowerKnife from Bettcher Industries offers today's foodservice solutions for slicing shawarma, stacked meat and gyros. Its multiple quick-change head design is one powerful solution for them all.

For many restaurants – particularly those offering Greek and Middle Eastern fare – serving gyro sandwiches, shawarma and doner kabobs are big business. These money-making sandwiches and meals feature marinated beef and lamb, pork, chicken, and even fish.

To prevent cross contamination when cutting cooked meat, many shops use separate knives for each different type of meat. Moreover, the cutting techniques are different for whole muscle meats versus the formed cones, so training and speed in cutting are additional challenges.

The 2N1 PowerKnife Solution
Now, Bettcher Foodservice offers a new, highly effective way to improve food safety as well as lower your food costs. The Bettcher 2N1 PowerKnife features an exclusive “quick-change” cutting head that enables you to use one power unit to cut different types of gyro, shawarma or doner cones.

So, whether you’re carving chicken, fish, pork, lamb or beef, you can do it all without cross contamination. It’s like having two or three knives in one!

Each quick-change head assembly includes a blade and depth gauge that’s simple to set up for cutting whichever specific type of cone you’re cutting. And it does it faster and more precisely compared to inefficient and more costly traditional cutting methods.

Key User Benefits
The benefits of using the Bettcher 2N1 PowerKnife are numerous:

  •      No cross-contamination from different meats or menu items
  •      It eliminates the need for buying separate or additional knives
  •      The PowerKnife tool increases yield and increases your profits
  •      A fast-rotating, long-life serrated blade is precision-engineered to cut whole muscle, stacked meat, doner kabobs or shawarma
  •      A yield-enhancing depth gauge may be adjusted for each cutting head for optimum slices, with no additional tools required
  •      The cutting head changes in just seconds, utilizing a simple positive twist lock procedure
  •      The tool is ergonomically designed for easy cutting, and cuts meat in both directions for faster meal preparation
  •      It is easy to train workers on the 2N1 PowerKnife

Precision-designed for Precision Cone Cutting
The fast and effortless precision-cutting action of the Bettcher 2N1 PowerKnife is due to the advanced cutting technology of the tool’s precision-engineered, cylindrical Whizard® blade. A full 360 degrees of cutting edge plus scientifically engineered serrations cut through the whole muscle meat used in doner kabobs and shawarams … and it cuts equally well in any direction.

Moreover, to ensure the proper thickness of meat is cut, an adjustable depth control gauge is also part of the tool. That means foodservice operators can control the overall consistency and thickness of the meat. The rotating circular blade works in conjunction with the depth gauge to produce uniform meat slices, order after order. It’s far more accurate compared to using a conventional shawarma knife.

Worker Safety, Not Just Food Safety
Engineered for comfort and safety as well as for productivity, the 2N1 PowerKnife reduces operator muscle fatigue as it glides effortlessly across the cone.

With the PowerKnife, even untrained employees can quickly learn the art of preparing consistent, great-looking gyros sandwiches for customers. A safety shut-off feature reduces the risk of injury while promoting safe operation. The PowerKnife tool is also very easy to sharpen, clean and maintain.

The 2N1 PowerKnife is one of many trimming tools available from Bettcher Industries, the meat trimming industry pioneer. Established in 1944, Bettcher Industries is a leading developer and manufacturer of a wide variety of innovative precision cutting tools for restaurant, foodservice and food processing operations, with sales and service operations in more than 50 countries worldwide.
