A bread crumb machine, also known as a bread crumbing machine or bread crumber, is a kitchen appliance or industrial equipment used to create bread crumbs from slices or pieces of bread. It typically consists of a feed hopper, a series of rotating blades or grinders, and a collection tray or conveyor belt.
The machine's primary function is to transform stale or fresh bread into uniform bread crumbs of various sizes, which can be used as a coating for fried or baked foods, such as chicken, fish, or vegetables, to add texture and flavor. Bread crumbs created by a bread crumb machine are versatile and commonly used in various culinary applications, including breading and topping for dishes. These machines are commonly found in commercial kitchens, bakeries, and food processing facilities
