Your New Secret Ingredient: Gills Sliced Onions

There’s nothing better than a fresh slice of onion. But the process of getting there can be a pain, especially in a commercial kitchen. On average, it takes 90 minutes to whole peel and slice a 50 lb sack of onions, and after all that time and effort you’re left with only 30 to 35 lbs of usable onions, most likely inconsistently cut. There is a better way to get the most value from your onions. 

The Value-Add of Sliced Onions

Gills Sliced Onions arrive to your kitchen fresh cut and ready-to-use. No more time need be spent peeling, slicing, and doing your best to avoid dangerous knife injuries. With sliced onions, you guarantee yourself a consistent cut, price, and yield every time you order. What you purchase is exactly what you’ll get. 

Our fresh sliced onions come in a variety of cuts, quantities, and packaging to fit your unique needs. Onions can be purchased in 1/8 inch, 3/8 inch, 3/16 inch, 1/4 inch, and 1/2 inch slices. We ship our product in a 5 lb resealable bag as well as in a 5 lb tray and a specialty 14 lb hand-packed box. While our bags and trays contain loose onion slices, our hand-packed box features 1/2 inch full slab cuts. 

We package our onions so that you can rely on a consistent yield. For example, the 14 lb box always comes with 96 intact slices, while a 5 lb tray of 1/8 inch sliced onions guarantees on average 154 onion pieces.This consistency means you can accurately budget each meal, never ending up short or seeing product go to waste. If you frequently use sliced onions in your kitchen, the savings in labor and true cost can be tremendous. 

You’ll also save on storage space. Our bags of ready-to-use onions reduce the amount of excess packaging and boxes in your fridge.

Use Sliced Onions to Ramp Up Your Recipes

Sliced onions are the perfect complement to just about any dish. Use a 1/2 inch intact slice for a tasty crunch on a hamburger or in a fresh sandwich. Or pop apart intact slabs to make onion rings. Our bagged sliced pieces look and taste great on a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich or atop a garden or Greek salad. Caramelize sliced pieces with other vegetables to create a flavorful side dish, or roast a full slab to place over a broiled steak. Discover more delicious recipes on our website.
