If your business involves working with fresh meat, sometimes you'll need to cut through tough bones. To save time and effort, an electric bone saw or a traditional bone saw is an ideal tool for butchers and other catering professionals that work with meat.
A powerful electric saw allows you to work quickly and precisely without it taking up a lot of physical energy. Its sharp blade effortlessly slices through meat and frozen food items like fish or vegetables, ensuring consistent, equal thickness for each cut.

How do you use an electric bone saw?
It's important to make sure that the height of the saw is adjusted to the height of the meat that you are going to cut. Then simply adjust the plate behind the saw to determine the thickness of the pieces of meat to be cut.
Push the handle of the meat pusher upwards and place the meat on the work surface. Push the handle down again so that the meat pusher comes into contact with the meat. Now you are ready to start the bone saw.
Push the meat with the pusher gently along the saw until a complete slice is cut. When you’re finished, turn off the machine and unplug the power cord if you are not going to use the bone saw again soon.

What food can you cut using a bone saw?
Traditionally, electric bone saws are used in meat processing facilities to cut through large cuts of meat and bones. But they can also be used in commercial kitchens and professional restaurants to cut through a range of foods.
One type of food that can be easily cut with a bone saw is meat. This includes beef, pork, chicken, lamb and other types of poultry. The sharp blade on the saw makes it easy to slice through tough cuts of meat and bones without much effort. This is especially useful for large pieces of meat that may be difficult to cut with a regular knife.
Another type of food that can be easily cut with an electric bone saw is fish. Similar to meat, the sharp blade on the saw makes it easy to slice through tough scales and bones. This is especially useful for larger fish such as salmon or tuna, which may require more force to cut through with a regular knife.
In addition to meat and fish, a bone saw can also be used to cut through fruits and vegetables. This includes tough-skinned produce like melons or squash, as well as root vegetables like carrots or potatoes. The precision of the blade allows for clean and even cuts, making it a useful tool for preparing bulk quantities of produce.
How to clean an electric bone saw
To ensure proper hygiene and performance, follow these steps when cleaning the meat saw machine:
- Turn off and unplug the machine before cleaning.
- Clean the loose parts, like the bandsaw and meat pusher, using a brush, warm water and soap. For optimal hygiene, you can use a warm water solution with vinegar and salt or add a bit of lemon to the water. This cleaning solution can also be used to clean the workspace.
- Rinse the parts with water and allow everything to dry completely before reassembling the machine.
- Clean the housing of the appliance using a damp cloth. Avoid using aggressive cleaning agents that could damage the bone saw.
Following these steps will help maintain the machine's performance and ensure a hygienic food preparation environment.
