Hobart Expands Continuous-Feed Food Processor Offering

TROY, Ohio (April 6, 2023) – Hobart, the premium commercial food equipment manufacturer known for designing and building some of the most reliable, must-have equipment, has expanded its continuous-feed food processor offering to include the FP300i floor model. This maximum heavy-duty food processor can process up to 88 pounds of product per minute and comes complete with the base, a stacking feed cylinder and a manual pusher plate for increased versatility. 

The large, full moon-sized cylinder allows for a variety of products and eliminates the need for pre-cutting. The manual pusher plate features an ergo-loop that provides a lever effect, reducing the need for manual force when processing large, hard products, such as root vegetables, cabbage and cheese. The 45-degree angle of the cylinder and the convenient height of the FP300i floor mount make it easy for operators to load products with less fatigue. 

Hobart offers an optional bulk feed hopper and cylinder set for purchase. The cylinder funnels product into the bulk feed hopper and is best for efficiently processing round products such as potatoes, onions and tomatoes. An optional four-tube feeder is available for loading long, narrow products like cucumbers, carrots and celery. 

The FP300i food processor provides a plate speed of 500 rpms, the ideal speed for processing without bruising the product. Available cutting tools allow operators to slice, dice, shred, grate, crimp, julienne and more, and the unit includes an exclusive decoring screw that deflects product from the plate hub to ensure complete processing. A 1 hp motor with planetary drive supports optimal performance. 

Hobart designed the FP300i food processor with a stainless steel hopper and housing. All removable parts and cutting tools from the FP300i are dishwasher-safe for improved sanitation and cleaning. 

To provide operator assurance, the FP300i food processor features a double interlock switch to keep it from running when the pusher plate is open or swings away. It also has a no-volt release that prevents it from turning on if power is lost. 

Hobart food processors like the FP300i floor model can save time and money in the kitchen. For more information on the company's full food processor offering, visit the Hobart food processor web page
