The Small or Shallot Onion Peeling Machine from M&P Engineering has been modified to peel smaller undersized onions or shallots. It tops, tails and peels onions of 18mm to 55mm diameter.

The Small Onion Peeling Machine uses a patented dry system for removing the outer skin, which means no slurry, and a peeled onion similar in quality to hand peeled but at high speed and consistent quality. There is virtually no waste and no trapping in the machine as the carriers are narrower and there is a reduced gap on the discharge conveyor.

It can peel 35 to 90 shallots per minute with a 90% success rate.
