Hobart: Food Safety and Your Slicer

It’s important to keep all food prep equipment clean, but especially food slicers. Why?

Carolyn Bilger: Obviously, food safety is important in any kitchen. The slicer’s always one of the first places the health inspector goes to when they come into a kitchen. And, about 80 percent of the listeria cases typically reported can be traced back to a slicer that’s not been cleaned properly.

Cart Maintenance is Key to Satisfied Customers

Room service has become the gold standard for many hospitals, and heated serving carts, in particular, has made a big impact on its success. Ensure your serving carts are working at their top performance with these check points.

Benefits of Going Ventless

In the restaurant industry today, there is no doubt that smaller spaces are trending. Higher rents per square foot, a shrinking labor pool and increasing operating costs have all contributed to this movement.

Hobart: A Full Line of Food Machines

A Q&A with Carolyn Bilger, Senior Marketing Manager, Hobart Food Machines

Is there a benefit in sourcing your kitchen equipment from the same manufacturer?

Carolyn Bilger: We certainly think so. If you need to schedule preventative maintenance or a repair and you’ve got to call multiple people, that takes a lot of time. Or, if you’re in a deli and you have some slicers in front-of-the-house and some in back-of-the-house and they all operate and tear down the same way, your employees don’t have to learn how to clean multiple kinds of equipment.

Maximizing the Cost Efficiency of Your Dishroom Operations

Unlike some other pieces of foodservice equipment, the cost of owning a commercial dishwasher goes beyond simply the price of the machine itself. How the machine consumes water, energy and chemicals can all have a profound effect on the cost of ownership over the lifespan of the machine. Having a dish machine that effectively balances these elements is essential to optimal performance and cost savings for your operation.
