New LXnR Advansys™ Two-Level Undercounter Dishwasher Increases Throughput, Labor Savings
Hobart has announced the availability of its new LXnR Advansys™ Two-Level Undercounter Commercial Dishwasher, designed to increase throughput and maximize labor savings for foodservice operations. The LXnR is capable of cleaning up to 48 racks per hour to offer the fastest undercounter throughput in the industry.
“For operations experiencing staffing shortages, the LXnR addresses those challenges by cleaning more ware in less time. Plus, it’s easy to use so training is minimal,” said Jacklyne Woods, product manager, Hobart Warewash. “Adding to that, the machine offers best-in-class wash performance, so operators can trust that they will always have the cleanest ware, every time.”
In addition to the two-level rack design, the LXnR Advansys features NSF-rated pot and pan cycles designed to clean the toughest food soils. Operators can easily remove the second-level rack to load larger items, such as a full-size sheet pan, into the 17-inch opening. When in place, the upper rack is ideal for plates, small wares and utensils.
To simplify and reduce chemical handling, the LXnR provides Low Chemical Alerts and Auto Prime, which eliminates the need for manual priming. The LXnR comes standard with Complete Delime™ with Booster Guard™, which notifies the operator when to delime, then automatically doses delime chemical and delimes the machine, including the booster heater.
Hobart has incorporated a smart touchscreen that is simple and intuitive to operate, along with integrated Wifi to connect to its SmartConnect app. The SmartConnect app tracks activity on the LXn series dish machines to provide operators with temperature monitoring and logging, water and chemical consumption, and alerts and troubleshooting for critical events. The app is available for Android and Apple devices.
In addition to increasing throughput, the LXnR reduces energy and water consumption and delivers cost savings. By decreasing the number of daily wash cycles, foodservice operations can expect to save up to 1,100 kWh in energy annually and reduce annual operating costs up to $500 per machine. The Energy Recovery system contributes to these savings by recycling heat energy from steam back into the dishwasher.
The LXnR is a recipient of the 2023 Kitchen Innovations® (KI) Award and was showcased at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago in May 2023.
