History of Vegetable Slicer

Vegetable slicers were first developed in 1970s, but they were not modernized enough to slice all vegetables in different shapes and thickness. These slicers were use to only cut vegetables with small diameter. In 1980s the vegetable slicers were improved to process vegetables with larger diameter up to 5 inches. In the later half of the mid 1980s slicing technology significantly improved in design and more advanced features were included, many automatic multi function vegetable slicers were developed. Vegetable slicers can be divided into two categories, horizontal and vertical type. This categorization depends upon on the principal shaft supported by the bearing, diameters of the slicer, singular blade or multi blade slicer.

The basic design of any vegetable slicer consists of material inlet system, outlet system and manual elevator system. The inlet system is simple to design its function is to get the vegetable or fruits inside the slicer for cutting. The cutting system consists of stainless steel or ceramic blade, blade rest, principal shaft and also a pair of pulleys. The motor which mainly operates on electric is used to transmit the power to the pulley and then to shaft, which rotates the blade in a circular movement. It slices the vegetable or fruits in a uniform thickness.
The outlet system is to make sure all the sliced vegetables come out, the baffle plate are generally larger than the opening of the outlet system, so that sliced vegetables drop accurately. The elevating system make the slices processed by the vegetable slicer have equal thickness, neat cut surface, more accurate and convenient to adjust the thickness.

All About Cast Iron Skillets http://www.actoflovefoundation.org/all-about-cast-iron-skillets/ http://www.actoflovefoundation.org/all-about-cast-iron-skillets/#comments Mon, 19 May 2014 10:10:10 +0000 http://www.actoflovefoundation.org/?p=4

Continue reading »]]> My father always used cast iron for cooking. That’s right, my father taught me what true culinary delight was, and that is: There’s no better frying pan than one made from cast iron, period!

Created hundreds of years ago, it’s still one of the safest materials for making frying pans and other cookware.

Why buy a Cast Iron Skillet?

Unlike artificially coated cookware, cast iron does not produce dangerous fumes during preheating, nor will the pre-seasoning flake off like other synthetically treated cookware.

Since the cast iron holds the heat longer, it’s easy to deliver your still sizzling meals to the table and your meals will stay hot longer in cast iron rather than conventional pans made from light-weight metals.

Lodge uses a soy-based vegetable oil treatment, not animal fat or peanut oil, which is baked into your cookware. They also make some of the best and economical cast iron skillets.

How to use your Cast Iron Skillet

Place the pan on the burner and gradually increase heat. Avoid cooking frozen or anything fresh out of the refrigerator to keep it from sticking. Your cast iron cookware can even be used on an induction heater, but don’t slide the pan on a glass top or you may scratch the surface.

How to care for your Cast Iron Skillet

Regular cleaning – use hot water and a stiff nylon brush and no detergent to clean your cookware, detergents are formulated to break down oils and will strip the pre-seasoning.

Refreshing the seasoning – required if you see your pans turning gray or there is undue sticking.

  1. Wash with hot soapy water, it’s OK to use detergent now, since you want to remove all the old oils.
  2. Rinse completely and dry your pan.
  3. Apply a light coat of melted vegetable shortening.
  4. Put foil on the bottom rack to catch drips and set oven to 350°F.
  5. Place your pan upside down on the middle rack and let the oil bake into the pan for one hour.
  6. Let the pan cool naturally in the oven.
  7. Store in a cool dry place without covering.
