Restaurant Help



  • I bought a restaurant last year and have revamped it… its a burger joint, but didn’t make the ground beef in house. I’m looking at least doing one of the following if not both, the patty process ( prefer with a machine) and the grinding process.IS the easy slider worth it with getting multiple molds? And what kind of grinder would work best for 300lbs a week on average of beef? Any recommendations would be great considering no one has ever done anything like this in the restaurant. I wouldn’t even know what kind of slab of meat to buy! lol 🙂

    @fperrelle I have not used the Eazy Slider myself.
    I’ll either get one of our other guys to respond, or I’ll get more details from them and respond again with more info!

    Also, if you’re grinding that much a week, you are going to be happier in the long-term with a commercial-grade meat grinder. I’ll get some info from one of our salesmen and post what their recommendation would be at that usage level!

    Will be in touch again soon!

    Do you do different patty sizes right now, or are you just exploring the option of having different patty sizes?

    Do you want a grinder to grind just for 1 day at a time, or are you looking to do batches for an entire week or other time frame at one time?



  • @Austin we have trouble sizes 6 and 8 oz.

    Bigger batches for grinder

    The Eazy Slider would be fine at that capacity and you should be able to operate at 10 patties a minute if you can move that fast and keep the hopper filled with meat. If you think that you would be growing your expected volume any time soon, you might want to consider the Protege Patty Machine as it will do 20 patties per minute, plus it runs continuously and puts the patty paper on each patty instead of manually applying patty paper. You can outgrow the Eazy Slider pretty quickly, but it does a great job on lower volumes if you don’t plan on needing extra capacity as you grow.

    As for a meat grinder, we’d probably recommend going with the Pro-Cut #32 Meat Grinder. Anything smaller and you are going to spend a lot of time waiting in the grinding phase. The Eazy Slider will take enough time to process that portion that having a quality grinder will help keep your process moving faster.

    Let us know if we can help you make any further decisions. Or, when you decide to get a patty machine, let us know, and we can start working with you on getting custom mold plates to fit exactly what you want to do.



  • @Austin I’m ready to get moving forward on the ez slider. Can you email me directly to discuss? Thanks

    @PapaSop im not impressed, those welds are terrible and doesnt appear to have good penetration. Also if i can give some advice to the manufacturer of the blades where it is welded should not be a flat welding on round stock. Cut a half moon in the flat stock so it slides over the round stock by half of of it. This will give alot better stability and welded surface

    @PapaSop im wondering what your smoking/cooking schedule was. Thinking maybe cooked too fast? Also i never use a binder in mine. Yes they were wrinkled but we dont have the wet bulb option as the big processors do to maintain moisture
