The Edlund Helios UV Knife Sterilising Cabinet, now available from Metcalfe Catering Equipment, can perform sterilisation in 3 minutes.
The KSUV-18 cabinet will sterilise knifes safely with claimed 99% efﬁcacy (independent laboratory testing indicated a 99% reduction in E.Coli bacteria) in those 3 minutes, although a mechanical bell timer can be set for up to 15 minutes.
The special non-UV ﬁltering clear slotted knife holder and mirrored interior walls of the NSF certified cabinet are designed to eliminate knife surface shadows that could prevent complete sterilisation.
LED lights indicate when the UV-filtered plexiglass door is closed and sterilisation is in process. The door handle can be locked with a key for safety.
The stainless steel cabinet measures 150(d)mm x 483(w)mm x 610(h)mm, and holds up to 12 knives, plus a steel. Two larger slots can accommodate cleavers.
