Slicers
November 2012
labeled slicer

The holidays are here. It is during this time of year that most families gather together and share a meal or two. It seems that most of the meals involve some form of meat, be it turkey or ham or something else. Therefore, this month we are highlighting slicers. We carry over 30 slicers in a wide range of styles, including our newest addition: a Nemco vegetable slicer. Some things to look for when purchasing your next slicer are: duty-type, blade size, and motor design.

You need to know what you will be slicing and how often you will be using your slicer to decide if you need light, medium or heavy-duty. You don’t want to overload your slicer. The blades come in a variety of sizes. You need to use a blade that has a diameter equal to the size of the product being sliced. You can choose between manual and automatic slicers based upon how much you are needing to slice. One last thing to consider is if you prefer belt-driven vs. gear-driven. Gear-driven is the way to go for higher volumes of slicing.

Hobart Slicers: Move Over Fancy Gizmo’s. Hobart is Here.

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

We are a species endlessly blessed with the vision to imagine or re-imagine the things that make life easier. We have little gadgets that play music, send emails, and items you merely touch that seemingly create magic. When it comes to restaurant equipment at Short Order, many the items we carry don’t operate exactly one of those fancy contraptions from an Apple store or Best Buy will, but they perform wonderful and captivating functions all the same.

Take for instance, our selection of magnificent Hobart Slicers. These robust and beautifully crafted machines are incredibly dependable. More importantly, many of them cut through thick meats, cheeses, vegetables, or just about anything, like a hot knife through butter. Can your iPhone do that? However, while your busy slicing; if you listen really carefully, you might just hear singing from your slicer. It’s the sound of your workload diminishing quickly and effortlessly. Just like those impressive gizmos, streamlined to make things easier, Hobart Slicers take advantage of some pretty impressive features themselves. Instead of lumpish, dinosaur-like machinery, you get heavy gauge stainless steel beauty, horsepower, and sharp precision. Most of all, Hobart Slicers are easy to operate.

When it comes to your slicing needs, there may not be an ‘app for that,’ and the Hobart Slicer 2712-1 won’t update your Facebook profile or check your bank account; however, this simple but effective heavy-duty machine is plainly the best slicer made. The two-speed automatic carriage with front mounted controls will easily increase your productivity, while “exclusive tilting” and “removable carriage” system help reduce labor and improve the ability to keep the machine clean and sanitary.

Of course, Hobart Slicers aren’t the only thing we carry from this wonderful brand of restaurant equipment. From Hobart mixers to meat grinders to dish and glass washing machines, these machines are long lasting and get the job done with incredible efficiency. And when your machines are this well made, it’s easy to find it all nothing short of magical.

Hobart Slicers: Become a Restaurant Samurai

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

You could spend your life looking for the perfect slice and it would not be a wasted one. It would be a journey in search of the cleanest, almost legendarily precise cut through the softest cheeses and thickest meats. This is a path in search of razor sharp efficiency, reliability and toughness. A skill not unlike tapping into slicing power of an ancient katana, commonly referred to as a “samurai sword.”  Yet, you need not travel to far off lands or learn the “way of the sword” to uncover the perfect cut for your culinary needs. At Short Order, we carry a selection of Hobart Slicers that are a cut above the rest.

While you could delicately carve exceedingly beautiful selections of turkey, hard salami, pepperjack and provolone with the exactness of an ancient Japanese blade, using a samurai sword to slice your ingredients would likely become quite exhausting if not dangerous. However, using Hobart Slicers, you can still unleash your food cutting warrior ethos. For example, the Hobart Slicer EDGE-1 features a 12” contoured carbon steel knife driven by a 1/3 horsepower motor. The top mounted Borazon stone sharpener will sharpen and hone the blade in five seconds. The gauge plate interlock and permanently mounted ring guard also help protect the knife-edge when cleaning or in operation. For optimum efficiency, the Poly V belt runs at 370 rpm, making slicing easy. The one-piece sanitary anodized aluminum base, removable carriage system and removable rear deflector make cleaning simple. All Hobart Slicers received our editors 5-Star rating and the the Edge-1 and the Hobart Slicer 2712-1 also are picked as our Editors Choice.

For restaurant equipment that lets you summon your inner samurai and helps you cut a noble path through both difficult and supple food items, look no further than Hobart Slicers from Short Order. Happy slicing and sayonara, until next time.

Hobart mixers

Hobart mixer

Hobart mixers are kitchen stalwarts

Hobart mixers, slicers, and dishwashers are probably important and well-loved parts of your kitchen. If you’re like most other restaurant equipment owners and users, you trust Hobart mixers for dependable results and reliable service, as well you should. Hobart dates back to 1897, when the Hobart Electric Manufacturing Company was founded to build quality electric appliances like industrial motors that helped coffee mill owners convert from hand-cranking to electric power. Hobart has been the premiere supplier of restaurant equipment and service for the foodservice and food retail industries for over a century.

Nothing beats Hobart mixers for big jobs

Hobart mixers excel at blending large quantities of wet and dry ingredients for chefs and cooks. Take the award-winning Hobart mixer model HL600-1STD. With its gear-driven transmission and heavy-duty 2.7 horsepower motor, this Hobart mixer can process an incredible sixty quarts in its swing-out bowl. The Hobart mixer HL600 is no slouch in ease-of-use features, either – it comes with a power bowl lift for heavy loads, a 50-minute timer, and a safety feature that prevents the Hobart mixer from running when the bowl guard is out of position.

For more modest restaurant equipment needs, the Hobart mixer model HL200-1STD delivers the same blending quality as the Hobart mixer HL600 – but in a bench mixer form factor at a fraction of the price. The Hobart mixer HL200 boasts a 1/2 horsepower motor and the same three-speed control, swing-out stainless steel bowl and bowl guard safety interlock as the Hobart mixer HL600. An aluminum beater and stainless steel wire whip are also supplied with the Editor’s Choice Hobart mixer HL200.

Hobart mixers may last longer than you think

In 2006, Hobart sought out the oldest Hobart mixer still in service. Given the sturdiness of Hobart mixers, everyone expected to discover a veteran Hobart mixer, but few expected to encounter a 93-year-old Hobart mixer (1913) still mixing up a storm every day at Winans Chocolates & Coffees of Piqua, Ohio.

Hobart mixers come from a community leader

It’s also comforting to know that quality Hobart mixers are built by a quality corporate citizen. Hobart supports the United Way and the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. With their innovative Hobart Center for Foodservice Sustainability, Hobart is also a leader in the restaurant industry going green. Although Hobart mixers are not a central part of the Hobart sustainability effort at this time, Hobart dish machines and warewashers are leading the way, with a full line of these products having earned the EPA’s ENERGY STAR rating.

Hobart mixers are only a piece of the Hobart picture

Hobart mixers and restaurant equipment continue to be market leaders. Hobart recently won its sixth consecutive overall Best in Class award in Foodservice Equipment & Supplies‘ survey. Hobart slicers, Hobart mixers and Hobart dish machines are part of a well-rounded product line that never fails to impress, year after year.
