General Food Service was created through the vision of the Harry Wiener family, who in the 1940’s created the General Slicing Machine Co. The company, based in Brooklyn, NY, immediately became known for their hand operated slicers and hand crank meat grinders. These products became the foundation of the company’s sales, with large retailers like Sears Roebuck & Co. and Montgomery Ward Co. featuring General heavily in their catalogs. With a name you have known and trusted since 1955, General features a variety of high quality mixers, slicers, meat processing equipment, vegetable and bowl cutters, coffee, tea, heating, and cooking equipment to meet all of your needs. These all-purpose mixers use a planetary mixing action that consistently blends, mixes and aerates all ingredients with satisfactory results. The heat treated carbon steel gears deliver energy at three pre-selected fixed speeds. Each mixer comes standard with a stainless steel bowl, flat beater, spiral dough hook, and wire whip. The stainless steel wire front bowl guard opens easily for adding ingredients. The bowl guard magnetic lock prevents the mixer from running if guard is opened or the bowl is lowered. The switches are moisture resistant. All units come with an overload switch which protects the motor.
