Berkel 808 cleaning and lubrication

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So picked up a berkel 808 runs good but could use a good cleaning and some lubricant. This is my first slicer so what do I grease this thing up with and what's the best cleaners to use on these? When is the berkel 808 from?

I think he's got you covered!

 

I just use a little 3-1 oil on the moving parts & sharpen the blade once in a while. I have a Torrey 12" commercial slicer.

So no special kinda cleaners or sanitizers or oils people use?

We just take it apart after using & clean with Dawn liquid soap. Dry & lubricate the moving parts (if needed).

 

That's it.

I actually just ordered that stuff before I seen your post. Guess I will start taking it apart and give it a good scrubbing.

Although my slicer is a Hobart 1612, cleaning should pretty much be the same. Disassemble whatever you can like meat tray, blade covers and wash with hot soapy water. I let mine air dry completely. I put it back together, then I use disinfecting wipes and wipe down all surfaces and let it all air dry One thing NOT to use is any kind of WD-40 or spray cooking oil. That stuff will gum up the works so bad.
