For larger production kitchens Cove Equipment of Oregon in the USA has developed a compact meat shredder.
The company sells hundreds of industrial size models to shred and pull meats and ships regularly to the UK and Ireland.
Now Cove has launched the SH-1 which has all the features and toughness of its bigger machines but is designed for smaller operations.
The SH-1 is a table top model that fits a normal 3-pin plug and yet will happily shred 200 kilos of pork, chicken, beef, lamb duck or game an hour, says the company.
The SH-1 is made in Finland so shipping to the UK normally takes less than two weeks, says Cove.
