Vollrath Manual Food Processors


Revolutionize your food preparation workflow with Vollrath manual food processors. With something for every kitchen, Vollrath’s manual food processor line offers a superior user experience and finishes with exceptional, flavorful results. In addition, the significant impact on food service operations is the labor savings and waste reduction. That means lower costs and higher profits. Studies have shown that over the course of a year, the Vollrath InstaCut was shown to have the potential to pay for itself with labor savings alone.


Vollrath Manual Food Processors can efficiently slice, dice, wedge, core, and more at a fraction of the cost of electric machines. At a lower price than electric machines, these manual food processors allow operators to achieve consistent, uniform results much faster than a knife in the hands of even the most experienced chef.


An independent study revealed the Vollrath InstaCut® 5.1 manual food processor cut a tomato into a quarter-inch dice up to 74% faster than a chef using only a knife. When dicing onions, the InstaCut was up to 66% faster.
