Tenderising & Strip Cutting

(inc Schnitzel Presses)

AKA The Workhorses

Whether you want to create tender meat, cut into into strips or flatten it we have a machine to add value to your products so you can delight your customers.

Tenderising can take 2 forms - needle tenderising and blade tenderising.

Needle tenderisers are more delicate on the product whilst blade tenderisers are more versatile as the cutting sets can be changed to ones for flattening and strip cutting.

Frequently asked questions

Which Tenderiser is the Best?

A lot of it depends on what you are trying to achieve.

Needle tenderisers are more gentle on the product and leave very little evidence that the meat has been tenderised whilst a bladed tenderiser will leave 'slash' marks. However with the bladed tenderisers from Edertal you can swap different sets to allow you to flatten meat for products such as schnitzel or cutting sets to produce strips for stir fries etc.

How much does a Tenderiser Cost?

Our manual schnitzel presses start at just over £500 whilst the smallest mechanical tenderisers start at just over £2000.

How often should I service my Tenderiser?

We recommend medium to large scale producers should have their tenderisers serviced by a qualified technician every 4- 6 months.

Manual tenderisers aren't cost effective to be serviced.

What size machine do I need?

It all depends on your production volume, the product you are filling and the outcome you want to achieve.

Once we know a bit more about your requirements we'll be able to advise on the most appropriate models for you.

Can I get a single phase machine?

What is a Tenderiser or Strip Cutter?

A tenderiser is a piece of food processing equipment that breaks down the tough sinew in the meat by puncturing it. There are two types of tenderisers needle and blade. The needle tenderiser is more delicate whilst the bladed version can be used as a strip cutter and flattener.

What is the warranty?

It varies from each manufacturer but generally the industry standard is 12 months parts warranty.

We offer additional warranty cover to include labour and extensions over 12 months. Details of this will be included in any quote you receive from us and depends on the delivery option you decide to take.
