  • The Road To Hobart's Warewashing Legacy

    In the restaurant industry, Hobart is a name that commands tremendous respect for their long-standing commitment to quality construction and premium performance. It's this commitment over the years that has carved out a space for the brand in the foodservice landscape for generations to come. One of the arenas Hobart excels in is commercial warewashing. Whether you're looking for a small Undercounter, a Door-Type Dishwasher or a heavy-duty Conveyor Dishmachine for your resort, cafeteria or other foodservice venue, the road to your purchase should lead you to Hobart. Find out more about Hobart Warewashing and how it can help your business: Hobart Undercounter Dishwashers: Hobart Undercounter Dishwashers are highly regarded for their heavy-duty stainless steel build, along with their water conservation, their compact size and their truly exceptional performance. There are two different series of Hobart Undercounter Dishmachines online, including the LXi and the SR24, which both are available in low temperature chemical sanitizing models as well as high temperature models. Make an economical investment for your low-to-mid-volume establishment with a Hobart Undercounter Dishwasher. The LXi Series: Hobart's top-of-the-line undercounter dishmachines await in the LXi series. This series of high temperature and low temperature chemical sanitizing dishmachines uses only 0.74 gallons of water per rack to clean(the lowest in the industry for an NSF rated, 2 minute cycle machine) and it can handle 30 racks per hour!  The LXi Series by Hobart is also ENERGY STAR® rated and will be sure to save you significantly over the years on water and energy costs. The SR24 Series: Hobart's SR24 Series of undercounter dishmachines is ideal for the lower volume establishment that still needs a dependable and quality-made dishwasher they can trust. These units are compact and economical, using only 2.4 gallons of water per rack and they are available in both high temperature and low temperature/chemical sanitizing models with the high temp models capable of washing 19 racks per hour while the chemical sanitizing can wash 14 racks per hour. All of the SR24 dishmachines are equipped with NSF compliant chemical sensing alarms for your convenience along with many other enviable features for your low-volume dishwashing demands. Note: The main difference between a high temp and a low temp/chemical sanitizing dishmachine is the way in which they sanitize. High Temperature Dismachines utilize a 180°F high temperature final rinse to sanitize while low temperature dishmachines use a chlorine-based sanitizing agent in the final rinse of the wash cycle. Both are highly efficient but low temperature/chemical sanitizing models use considerably less energy than their high temperature counterparts.   Hobart Door-Type Dishwashers: Hobart Door-Type Dishwashers are sought after industry-wide for their medium build, their energy saving design and their versatile configuration capabilites which allow them to fit into just about any washing line. There are three main categories available, starting with the AM Select, the Advansys Ventless, and finally the LT1. Find out more about these 3 groups of door-type dishwashers by Hobart and how they can add to your commercial kitchen: The AM Select: The AM Select Series is an ENERGY STAR qualified line of door-type dishmachines that is NSF-certified to clean all your soiled dishware, delicate glasses, along with your heavy-duty, grimy pots and pans thanks to its four different washing cycles. Using only 0.74 gallons of water per rack thanks to an exclusive rinse arm design, these heavy-duty stainless steel dishmachines will save you and your bottom line considerably in water, energy and chemical costs. The AM Select Series is broken down into 3 groupings, starting with the AM Select Standard and the AM Select Tall which can be  converted from a straight-through to a corner configuration, and finally the AM Select Front Loading dishmachines which feature a convenient drop down shelf for quick and easy loading and unloading. All of these groups are available to you in both low temperature/chemical sanitizing and high temperature models.   The Advansys Ventless: Hobart's Advansys Series is the 1st ventless door-type dishwasher of its kind to feature energy recovery technology. This ENERGY STAR qualified series, which can clean everything from heavy pots to delicate glassware, utilizes a state-of-the-art internal condensing system that minimizes water vapor and eliminates the need for a vent hood, saving you enormously in hood costs and installation along with utility costs over time. Like the AM Select, the Advansys Ventless Dishmachines come available in 3 different sizes so you can find just what you need to best fit your wash line. Choose from the Advansys Standard, the Tall and the Front Loading model. The Advansys Ventless Door-Type Dishmachines are the ideal investment for the restaurant or foodservice venue that's committed to sustainability.

      The LT1:  The LT1 Door-Style Low Temperature Dishmachine by Hobart is simplicity at its best without compromising quality performance. This machine requires no booster heater or high voltage, needing only to be plugged into the wall, and it comes standard equipped with detergent, rinse aid and sanitizer pumps along with an exclusive deliming cycle to keep it running properly. With the LT1, you can wash up to 37 racks of soiled dishes per hour using only 1.7  gallons per rack, and people love its versatility given that it is field reversible from straight through to corner configuration to fit your unique washing line! Hobart Conveyor Dishwashers: For the large-scale restaurant, resort, banquet setting, or hospital that needs to wash hundreds of racks per hour without a hitch, there is no better warewashing solution than a Conveyor Dishwasher by Hobart. Unlike Hobart's Undercounter and Door Type models mentioned above, Conveyor dishmachines utilize an automated system to pull racks through the chamber to wash, rinse and sanitize with every use, creating an easier and more efficient system for your cleaning staff. The CL44e Series Automatic Rack Conveyor Dishmachines are built-to-last with a heavy-duty stainless steel construction and they are loaded with enviable features, like the exclusive Opti-Rinse technology which uses 50% less rinse water and 50% less energy than conveyor dishmachines without it! That means you can wash up to 202 racks of soiled dishes per hour with just 0.62 gallons of water per rack in these ENERGY STAR machines. Choose from a multitude of other features, like right to left or left to right operation, and find the ultimate conveyor dishwasher for your high volume venue. Feel free to call our friendly customer service team at 800-319-0690 for guidance on which unit is right for you!
