Hobart launches new Centerline kitchen equipment

Hobart launches new Centerline kitchen equipment

Simple, affordable food preparation and dishwashing equipment

Monday, May 6, 2019

Ohio-based Hobart Corporation, a provider of commercial grocery and foodservice equipment, has launched a new line of kitchen equipment which gives restaurants and mid-sized foodservice operations new options in food preparation and washing equipment.

Centerline by Hobart is simple and affordable food preparation and dishwashing equipment for operations which require quality and reliable performance without advanced technologies or high volume/continuous run-time requirements.

“At Hobart, we are inspired by those who are not only passionate about creating great food but are inspired to serve and improve the lives of others through food. Because we are committed to supporting the needs of foodservice professionals at every step of their journey, we’ve introduced Centerline by Hobart, a line of equipment that offers the quality and durability operators need to pursue their passions and be successful as their operations grow and evolve. We recognize various operations, menus and volume requirements don’t always necessitate the need for our premium line. With Centerline, we’ve extended our offering to provide more options and flexibility that better support our customers’ varying needs,” explained Todd Blair, Marketing Director for ITW Food Equipment Group.

Introduced this May, the Centerline HMM20 Standard Heavy-Duty 20-Quart Mixer, which is designed for kitchens that depend on mixers for short periods of time and for multiple applications. The mixer features a 0.5 horsepower motor with three mixing speeds and an all-gear transmission. The HMM20 also includes a GearSafe System, which protects the mixer from damage if speeds are changed while the machine is running, and Last Time Rewind, which automatically recalls the last time the mixer was used, making it easier to mix multiple batches of the same item.

Launching later this year is the Centerline CUH High Temperature Undercounter Dishwasher which is made with a focus on simplicity, durability and value. According to the company, the Centerline CUL Low Temperature Undercounter Dishwasher will be introduced later this year as well.

“We recognize foodservice professionals are central for creating great food and bringing people together, and the equipment they use is central to that process. As a brand with a mission to support foodservice professionals with equipment they can trust and rely on to help them succeed, it’s important we offer equipment options that make the most sense for their volume, application and operational requirements. Centerline by Hobart is designed with our customers in mind, offering simple, affordable equipment options so many have been asking for, backed by the quality and reliability they’ve come to expect from the Hobart name,” stated Blair.
