Dealers and chefs have been flocking to ITW’s stand at the NRA Show to get a first-hand look at the company’s latest innovations.
More than 100 high performance and energy efficient commercial kitchen products from ITW Food Equipment Group brands such as Hobart, Baxter, Traulsen, Vulcan, Wolf, Berkel, Stero and Somat, are on the floor of Chicago’s McCormick Center over three different booths.
Visitors to the stand can see the latest in kitchen equipment advancements, including one of the industry’s most energy efficient flight-type washers, a heavy duty cooking solution for small kitchens and a new line of simple, affordable food preparation and dishwashing equipment.
“The National Restaurant Association Show is a highlight of the year as it gives us a chance to talk with foodservice professionals about their needs while introducing them to our latest advancements in performance and resource efficiency,” explained Todd Blair, director of marketing for ITW Food Equipment Group.
“This year, we’re debuting Centerline by Hobart, a new line of kitchen equipment for restaurants that don’t require the advanced technology features or extreme-volume, continuous run-time requirements of our premium equipment solutions, but still desire Hobart quality and reliability.”
The Hobart FT1000e Low Energy Series Dishwasher, a flight-type washer built for high volume operations is designed to reduce energy consumption and connected amp load requirements.
It offers the industry’s lowest total cost of ownership, saving operators thousands of dollars in energy costs annually for greater lifetime value, according to ITW.
Meanwhile, the self-cleaning Baxter BV400G VersaOven combines the best features of steamer, rotisserie, convection and combi ovens into one space-saving design, while the Vulcan Versatile Chef Station, a compact, heavy duty, multi-function cooking station allows chefs to maximize every inch of space while streamlining their workflow.
