“Still making them the old way”
The Bluffton Slaw Cutter Factory was opened in Bluffton, Ohio in 1915. A local entrepreneur wanted to manufacture the 'Best Slaw Cutters and Graters' in the US. Thus, the company was started and has continued to operate continuously for the past 93 years. The building and equipment are of the late 1800s and early 1900s. The line shaft is powered by a single antique electric motor. The product has been distributed by many wholesalers, including William Sonoma and most recently by Cracker Barrel.
We were here on July 23, 2014. The company was closed and "for sale" signs were in the windows.
The Bluffton’s Slaw Grater is superior to all graters when it comes to producing long thin sweet cabbage for slaw. Our family owned this grater back in early 50’s. My mom’s slaw was the favorite in our social gatherings. As the five siblings left home we were gifted this slaw cutter. We can’t imagine making slaw with another type grater. It may tarnish over time but it keeps it’s sharp edge. Do not place in dishwasher.
The Bluffton Slaw Cutter business is back in action. I saw a great demonstration of the equipment this summer during the Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure.
