The "PRAWNTO®" shrimp cutter and deveiner - the most dependable piece of equipment of its kind on the market today. Because it is powered by a ¼ h.p. motor and constructed of aluminum and stainless steel, and high quality standards in the maufacturing processess, we offer a 1 year warranty.

Who uses the PRAWNTO®?........ Major and Independent Restaurants, Hotels, Retail Seafood Stores, Supermarkets, and Shrimp Processing Plants Worldwide.

Why buy another piece of equipment?........ If your operation sells or processes shrimp, and you clean shrimp by hand, we can show you how to cut your labor in half, while providing an operating standard of speed that can be checked by management, and allow for the most efficient use of labor. The Prawnto® is a must in today's labor environment. Totally safe to operate, it also alleviates the tedious hand peeling motions that can cause costly wrist injury.

What exactly does the PRAWNTO® do?......... It cuts the shrimp down the back to any depth while destroying most of the sand vein. The shell is then easily removed by "pinching" it off from the underside. The tail can be removed or left on for any presentation required.

What about cutting different sizes of shrimp?......... Here is the beauty of the Prawnto... It's self adjusting for different sizes. With our NEW patented roller system only the depth knob is necessary for different depths of cut.

Can the PRAWNTO® butterfly?....... Yes. The cut will be deep in the front to fan the shrimp for better presentation while stopping at the tail section for efficient breading or skewering. Round cut is also possible with the Prawnto.

How fast is the Prawnto?......... An inexperienced operator can cut shrimp at the rate of 3,600 shrimp per hour. That rate translates into the following pounds per hour:

U-12.............300 Lbs.
16-20............200 Lbs.
26-30............128 Lbs.
36-50............84 Lbs.
50-60............65 Lbs.
90-110..........36 Lbs.

What are the size ranges the PRAWNTO® can handle?.....U10 down to 71/90 count green headless product.

Will there be any damage or mis-cut shrimp?.......... NO. With proper, simple maintenance and cleaning, the cutting blade will always cut down the center of the shrimp's back each and every time.
