Offenburg – Using technology to save time: This is the formula for success for the HOBART undercounter dishwashers, which were recently voted "Best Product" at the major Polish trade fair EuroGastro. An expert jury of specialists from the catering trade and press representatives opted for the HOBART dishwashers not least for their new drying feature TOP-DRY. Thanks to the innovative drying technology, plates, cups or glasses are fit for use directly after washing. Manual re-drying or polishing is absolutely redundant. This is a huge relief for the scullery staff who gain time for other activities.
The EuroGastro is the major annual trade fair for the restaurant and hotel trade in Poland and attracts more than 19,000 visitors. "We are very happy to have won this prize. The judgement by the independent jury shows that our decision to focus our development on the customers' requirements was fully spot-on," says Markus Bau, Director Customised Systems and Export at HOBART GmbH. "When developing our new glass washers and dishwashers, we closely attended to our customers' wishes. The result is a machine that operates economical, fast and reliable, and makes the daily dishwashing routine as easy as possible for the staff," he explains. The new TOP-DRY drying leaves nothing to be desired Using hydro-thermal energy storage, the TOP-DRY technology converts the moist air to hot drying air after the end of rinsing and returns it to the washing chamber. Thus, the moisture can no longer deposit on the wash ware.
The HOBART glasswashers and dishwashers provide another three innovative highlights for clean, ecological and smart warewashing. The machine feature VAPOSTOP² prevents steam from escaping not only during the washing and drying process but also when the dishwasher door is opened. This avoids discomfort for the guests sitting close to the bar and negative effects on the room climate. Besides, the new machines are particularly silent which makes them ideal for use at the bar counter. The VISIOTRONIC-TOUCH features a colour touch display as well as the time-proven single-button operation, which is another essential selling point. After all, time pressure and stress frequently occur in everyday work in the catering trade. For this reason, the machines must be easy to use to avoid faulty operation and to keep the time needed for instruction as short as possible.
The HOBART WASHSMART app offers many options for optimising processes and reducing costs. WASHMART provides comprehensive information which allows users to optimally coordinate maintenance tasks, troubleshoot minor problems, and record and check all consumptions.
