Offenburg – High-tech beauty in stainless steel: The new glasswashers and dishwashers by HOBART convince – in terms of function and of appearance. For the new look of the undercounter dishwashers, the world market leader for commercial warewashing recently won the iF DESIGN AWARD 2019 in the Product category. Established in 1953, the iF DESIGN AWARD is one of the major design prices world-wide and is conferred once a year by the iF International Forum Design GmbH. In close collaboration with the agency “Ottenwälder und Ottenwälder” HOBART developed the new machine design.
The international jury, made up of 60 renowned design experts, not only assesses the appearance but also the customers' user experience. Other evaluation criteria are the uniqueness of the products, the degree of innovation, and the benefits in practice. The undercounter dishwashers by HOBART convince by their design and particularly by their intuitive operation via a single button. The intelligent single-button control VISIOTRONIC-TOUCH is not only the external distinguishing mark of all HOBART machines, but also makes operation particularly easy.
Harald Disch, Director Ware Wash Engineering Europe & Global New Technologies of HOBART, knows how important a self-explanatory control is in the everyday washing-up routine. "In the catering trade, time pressure and stress are part of everyday work. For this reason, it is essential that the dishwasher eases the workload of the staff as much as possible: High operator comfort is required to avoid faulty operation and to keep the time needed for instruction as short as possible.
