A new line of food preparation and warewashing equipment from Troy, Ohio-based Hobart gives independent and midsized foodservice operations a new option.

The Centerline line of products from Hobart offers simple, affordable food preparation and dishwashing equipment for operations that demand quality and reliable performance without the need for advanced technology features or extreme-volume, continuous run-time requirements, according to the company.

“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,” says Todd Blair, marketing director for ITW Food Equipment Group, Hobart’s parent company. “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.”

Centerline by Hobart debuts with the introduction of the Centerline HMM20 Standard Heavy-Duty 20-Quart Mixer in May and the Centerline CUH undercounter dishwasher, to be released later this year.

The Centerline HMM20 Standard Heavy-Duty 20-Quart Mixer is designed to be an ideal fit for kitchens that depend on a mixer for shorter periods of time and multiple applications. It features a ½ horsepower motor, three mixing speeds and an all-gear transmission for superior reliability and performance. The HMM20 also includes features like the GearSafe System that protects the mixer from damage if speeds are changed while it’s running, and Last Time Remind, which automatically recalls the last mixing time used, making it simpler to mix multiple batches of the same item.

For warewashing, Centerline by Hobart is introducing the Centerline CUH High Temperature Undercounter Dishwasher. The CUH is built with a focus on durability, simplicity and value, while delivering performance and quality backed by the Hobart name. Later in the year, Centerline by Hobart will also be introducing the Centerline CUL Low Temperature Undercounter Dishwasher.
