Healthcare means caring about safety.
According to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, the people most “at risk” to food-borne illnesses are very young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with an illness that compromises their immune systems. In short, your patients and residents.
Supporting your best practices. As a health-care foodservice professional, you always seek out the highest-quality grades of food and the freshest ingredients. Stringently following safe food practices, you have made food safety your highest priority, meeting the rigorous standards for HACCP compliance and documentation.
Hobart and Traulsen support you with equipment that directly addresses three of the five most significant factors that contribute to food-borne illness: improper holding temperature, inadequate cooking and contaminated equipment.
Traulsen Quick Chiller
Foods that are
prepared ahead of serving time need to be chilled quickly to get them through
the Danger Zone of temperatures (41°F to 135°F) in which food can spoil. The Traulsen Undercounter Quick Chiller
packs the chilling power of the blast chiller into a simpler and smaller
package. With only a chill setting, the quick chiller pulls down the temperature
of food well within FDA-required time limits and is network capable to assist
with HACCP documentation.
The Hobart Combi® Oven.
Convection mode. Steam mode. Combination mode. These three cooking modes give Hobart Combi Ovens their remarkable versatility: baking, grilling, roasting, steaming, proofing, rethermalization, low-temp cooking and much more. With its 100 program-mable recipes, you can cook everything exactly the way you want. All your operators have to do is select the food recipe and press Start.
The Hobart Combi Oven/Traulsen Blast Chiller combination: Unrivaled productivity, food safety and HACCP compliance. The Hobart Combi Oven and Traulsen Blast Chillers have been specifically designed to complement each other to help ensure food safety while simplifying your monitoring and documentation requirements. Traulsen Blast Chillers take food from 135°F to below 41°F in about 90 minutes. Two built-in printers automatically document the process, one for HACCP records and the other to label the product container.
Cook Chill with HACCP. Re-enter the Hobart Combi Oven. The Hobart Combi Oven lets you rethermalize meals up to five days later. Traulsen’s roll-in rack lets you transfer a full rack of trays or pans between a combi and a Traulsen Blast Chiller. Providing complete HACCP compliance is the combi’s optional Hobart Communication Product Control (HCPC) recording system, automatically monitoring and documenting time/temperature and food-quality variables.
Sanitizing your equipment. Hobart’s new Advansys™ CLeR conveyor-type warewasher with Opti-Rinse™ technology can clean and sanitize your ware with less than 50% the rinse water and energy, compared to models without Opti-Rinse. And the CLeR can save you up to $2,047 per year in energy and HVAC installation and operation with the Advansys Energy Recover feature.
"Grab and go": The care and feeding of staff and visitors.
A cafeteria line is one thing. An inviting restaurant environment is another. A microwaved burrito is one thing. A fresh salad, a hot, toasty sandwich and a sit-down menu are another. Even when a meal has to be “grab and go,” you can make it great. If your healthcare foodservice operations are expected to be profitable, retail sales can represent up to 75% of your foodservice income.
That’s why Hobart and Traulsen offer time-saving and space-saving equipment for your front-of-the-house cooking operations. Traulsen’s full-size undercounter refrigerators and freezers offer precise temperature control, along with flexibility and convenience. Hobart’s high-volume food preparation equipment—slicers , mixers and food processors—help you prepare the salad bars, wraps and deli sandwiches that attract everyone from sit-down guests to on-the-run staffers.
The Baxter Hybrid Convection Oven is
another great space-saving product that is perfect for serving your grab-and-go
operation. This versatile oven packs the cooking power of convection heat
and/or steam into a small footprint. It can produce artisan-quality baked
goods, crispy fries and a host of other delectable foods to keep your patients
and visitors happy and well fed.
Room service delivers patient delight. Surveys have shown that patient and staff satisfaction soars when they can count on a delicious meal—served with class and caring.
That’s why one of the most successful breakthroughs in healthcare foodservice is room service. A restaurant-style menu—customized to doctors’ orders—with great food served fresh and hot, complete with china and silverware. Yes, it’s pampering…and patients love it.
But how do you tackle the volume, variety and individual requirements to provide high-caliber room service to hundreds of patients? We can help. Featuring convection, steam and combination cooking modes, Hobart Combi® Ovens allow you to preprogram up to 100 recipes and cook them to perfection with push-button convenience. The new Hobart Combi Barcode Scanner and software make it even easier, letting you turn your every recipe into a barcode that your staff can simply scan and press Start to cook. How’s that for service?
Sustainability: Healthcare's natural ally.
Sustainable buildings are designed to offer residents (patients) better air to breathe, creating environments less prone to the spread of infection. Sustainable buildings are environmentally friendly, reducing harmful emissions. Sustainable buildings are more economical to operate, making your healthcare operation more financially sustainable.
Save your energy. American healthcare organizations pay a huge energy bill every year: over $8.3 billion. Hobart and Traulsen have more than 300 ENERGY STAR® qualified pieces of equipment—including refrigerators, freezers, warewashers, hot-food holding cabinets, steamers and fryers—that can save you as much as 45% on your energy bills.
Save a bundle. The Hobart Advansys™ Ventless Door-Type Warewasher is the latest and greatest in the
long line of Hobart innovations. Its unique Energy Recovery feature saves
energy by capturing the water vapor and condenses it to heat the incoming
cold-water inlet for the final rinse cycle. And because it’s ventless, there’s
no HVAC installation or operating costs. With a combined saving of $792 in
energy and $776 from reduced HVAC usage, the Advansys Ventless can save you
$1,568* per year.
Save your water. With Hobart’s exclusive Opti-Rinse™ technology, the new CLeR conveyor-type and the FT900 flight-type warewashers with the Advansys™option can reduce your rinse water (and energy) consumption by more than 50%, compared to models without it. The total saving? On the FT900, up to $15,000 a year; on the CLeR, up to $9,192. That's in addition to the energy and HVAC installation and operation savings from the Advansys Energy Recovery feature: $2,047 on the CLeR and $3,200 on the FT900.
Reduce your foodservice waste. The Hobart WastePro™ Pulper can reduce the volume of your foodservice waste—including food, paper, plastic and Styro-foam—as much as 88%, saving you as much as $17,000 a year in hauling, liner and labor costs, while reducing landfill volume.
