Hobart and Baxter Pair Products and Contest at IBIE Baking Expo

Hobart and Baxter are coming together as the “perfect pair” to exhibit the products that meet bakers’ needs at the International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE) October 6-9 in Las Vegas, Nev.

Hobart mixers and Baxter ovens are the “perfect pair” for operators looking for premium quality that consistently delivers great results from start to finish. Hobart’s legendary mixers are available for every production need—from 5-qt. tabletop planetary mixers to 220-lb. spiral mixers. Baxter offers ovens from the 4-pan Hybrid Convection Oven to the energy-efficient OV500G2-EE double rack oven and proofers in sizes to meet production demands. Both brands deliver enduring construction and features designed with the baker in mind.

Hobart and Baxter encourage IBIE attendees to visit booth #3121 and enter to win the “Perfect Pair” contest. The winning entry is going to be drawn Oct. 8, with the winner receiving an Apple iPad mini and accessory pack. The contest begins Oct. 6 and ends Oct. 8 at noon.

Delivering Great Results with the Perfect Pair

Hobart’s Legacy®Mixer is the foodservice industry’s leader for durability, ergonomics and labor efficiencies, and it is available in a full line of models ranging from 5 quarts to 140 quarts. It has an exclusive swing-out bowl and Shift-on-the-Fly™ technology for changing speeds while the mixer is running. Hobart’s Spiral Mixers are designed specifically for the unique, high-quality dough needs of commissaries, bakeries and large pizzerias. The 180-lb. and 220-lb. spiral mixers combine the action of the spinning dough hook and the rotating bowl, enabling the ingredients to mix faster, limiting oxidation and generating superior quality dough. They are easy to operate, with two speeds and programmable timers, and they are easy to clean.

Baxter’s Rotating Rack Ovens are ideal for baking, roasting or reheating a variety of food. The OV500G2-EE double rotating rack oven is being highlighted in IBIE’s Innovation Showcase and includes the following features:

An Energy Setback Mode” that reduces energy usage without slowing down productivity. Baxter’s oven was the first model tested by the Food Service Technology Center to include the energy setback mode feature. As a result, FSTC has changed its testing protocols to include energy setback in all rack oven testing.

Patented, self-contained steam system that provides consistent steam throughout the bake chamber every time.

Unique airflow system to ensure heat is evenly dispersed from the top to the bottom of the oven, making certain all food is cooked thoroughly and evenly.

Heavy-duty lifting and rotating system built to handle heavy loads.

Baxter’s OV310 mini-rotating rack oven does everything a full-size model does, but in a small footprint. A removable interior rack and several base options for the OV310 provide the ability to add a complete bake center or add on to an existing bakery.
