The Dowson Crouton Slicer Dicer is designed for high-speed and high-throughput – up to 20 loaves per minute – and combines this high speed production with minimum downtime for an extremely efficient operation. The design incorporates the proven reciprocating slicing mechanism which has the ability to deal with all kinds of bread loaves. Simply by changing the blade formation around, a Dowson crouton machine is capable of achieving varying cube and oblong croutons all the way down to 6mm in length.

This compact design is built using high quality components for an industry where reliability and safety is paramount.

There are various opportunities for customisation including the option for crust removal, blade set-up and software selection amongst others.

Like all Dowson products it comes with an excellent pedigree and is a very reliable, popular machine for busy environments.
