KÜCHE AWARDS 2018: HOBART receives Gold award for new undercounter dishwashers
The new glasswashers and dishwashers have been available since 1 June
The readers have cast their votes: In this year’s presentation of the KÜCHE AWARD by the trade magazine KÜCHE, HOBART wins the gold medal. In the Warewashing category, the readers were convinced by the new glasswashers and dishwashers by HOBART, the innovation and market leader, which were presented early this year at the international trade shows.
The prize was awarded this year for the 14th time, based on the Germany-wide survey of the opinions of experts from the foodservice, hotel, and catering industry regarding the recently introduced warewashing, cooking and food preparation equipment.
Manfred Kohler, vice president/general manager sales & manufacturing of HOBART GmbH, is pleased about the positive response and the successful market launch of the new undercounter dishwashers: “The demand is very high. Our customers especially love the TOP-DRY feature. The drying results achieved are unique in the commercial sector: Dishes and glasses are ready for re-use as soon as they come out of the dishwasher, without requiring any manual drying or polishing.
“Obviously, this saves plenty of time and makes life easier for the staff – particularly when things are busy. Furthermore, our new machines can be linked to the HOBART WASHSMART app, allowing the user a constant overview of due maintenance dates, consumption, hygiene, and operating costs. This feature is likewise very interesting for our customers because they can retrieve major machine-related data from anywhere.”
An overview of the new machine features:
TOP-DRY drying – For the best drying result
Drying wet wash ware is laborious and time consuming: The HOBART TOP-DRY drying provides you with first-rate drying results. Here, once the washing process is complete, the humid air is converted using a hydro-thermal energy storage system, and re-introduced into the wash chamber as hot drying air. This prevents moisture from depositing on the wash ware, and tableware and glasses no longer need to be dried and polished by hand. Another benefit is the improved room climate, as this generates less humidity. At peak times, when the dishes are needed faster than usual, the drying process can be interrupted at any time.
VAPOSTOP² – Puts an end to clouds of steam
We all know the feeling of opening a dishwasher right after it has finished, and being hit in the face with a cloud of steam. Those days are over: The innovative VAPOSTOP² uses a ventilation system to extract the hot 60 °C waste steam from the inside of the machine, thereby preventing the steam from escaping. A total of 90 % less steam escapes into the room. Thus, removing the wash ware is much nicer for personnel and guests at the bar are not bothered by any escaping steam.
HOBART WASHSMART app – Everything at a glance
The HOBART WASHSMART app allows you to call up comprehensive information on the status of the new glass and dishwashers. Among other features, the app informs the end customer well in advance of due maintenance dates, or chemical consumption and displays any system messages. Based on this data the user can avoid standstill, re-order consumables directly via the app, and provide first information to the service technician in advance. Meanwhile, the user can resort to the troubleshooting advice in the app to remedy minor malfunctions themselves. If the problem still cannot be solved, the customer can contact the HOBART customer service or a qualified service partner directly via the app.ser a constant overview of due maintenance dates, consumption, hygiene, and operating costs. This feature is likewise very interesting for our customers because they can retrieve major machine-related data from anywhere.”
