NAKAYA NT- 400S Automatic Onion Skin Peeler (Non Abrasive)

How do you process onions with a beautiful hand peeled and polished look?

The answer is simply to use the NAKAYA Onion Skin Peeler.

The first NAKAYA was designed by an onion grower and improved upon by his engineer son. The third generation has fine-tuned this incredibly rugged and well-designed machine. It requires almost no maintenance.

The NT- 400S processes up to 4,000 onions per hour, depending on onion size which ranges from 40mm - 110mm (one and a half inches to four and a quarter inches) in diameter. A variable speed drive controls the rate of input.

Please note this machine is not suitable for restaurants and commercial kitchens; it is designed to operate in a food processing factory.

For onions or shallots with a diameter of less than 40mm, we recommend using the Nakaya Garlic Peeler:

are very vulnerable to bruising which quickly leads to spoilage, and abrasion peelers add to the problem. The NT- 400S uses a knife slit system, to make a surgical incision in the onion skin, and then compressed air blows the skin away.

The onions are not manually handled and the gentle manner of processing reduces spoilage dramatically. There is no odour or problem with "running eyes".
