Hobart Demonstrates Dedication to Customer-Back Innovation Through World-First Undercounter Range

Hobart has developed an undercounter dishwasher with a built-in Cutlery Premium feature to make manual polishing a thing of the past. Not only this but its newest undercounter range is the first of its type to gain much sought after ETL (Energy Technology List) certification – taking pride of place on the Government’s approved list of energy efficient products.

When extensive Europe-wide research highlighted manual polishing of cutlery as one of the biggest pain points for hotel and restaurant kitchens, Hobart’s expert teams got to work. The end result is the world’s first undercounter dishwasher with a built in Cutlery Premium feature. The rotation of the cutlery premium rack during the wash, rinse, and drying phases eliminates overlapping and water shielding to achieve hygienic stain-free cutlery without the need for manual polishing. This results in up to 50% labour saving compared to manual drying and polishing, giving front of house teams valuable time back to focus on the needs of customers.

The new undercounter range also boasts a combined wash and rinse arm with self-flushing nozzles which eliminate blockages to give maximum wash performance whilst reducing manual cleaning effort for operators. This allows for a 10% reduction in water consumption on short and standard cycles*, which in turn results in a similar reduction in energy and chemical consumption.

A new E-Save cycle reduces the rinse temperature and operates a shorter cycle to save on electrical energy consumption whilst maintaining wash performance. Allied to this, the machines boast a self-cleaning cycle that has been optimised and automatically activates on drain down to minimise labour required to maintain a clean wash chamber.

The range’s remarkable performance has also seen it become the first of its type to gain ETL (Energy Technology List) certification, an exacting process described by MD Tracy Southwell as “a huge milestone” for the company. “Our expert teams use ground-breaking, patented technology to continuously push the boundaries towards optimum efficiency whilst maximising wash capacity; this new undercounter range – and the achievement of ETL certification – is evidence of that dedication to innovation.

On the new launch she commented: “This deep routed commitment to development via our innovation pipeline, enables Hobart to take customer satisfaction and machine performance to new levels whilst constantly striving to reduce operating costs. The latest result of this dynamic design and manufacturing process is the next generation undercounter machine with unique, new features developed as a direct consequence of our customer back innovation programme.”
