A Fusion of Quality + Affordability = Hobart and Traulsen's Centerline™ Equipment

Commercial kitchens are only as good as their equipment. While skilled chefs and workers can handle many day-to-day operations, they still must rely on coolers, prep stations, ovens, grills, and more to get the job done.

Fortunately, the Hobart and Traulsen Centerline™ lineup of foodservice equipment is designed for businesses of all shapes and sizes. When there are several options, operators can work more efficiently and don't have to worry about malfunctions or setbacks. The best part is that these devices can fit into any budget.

Centerline Unveiled: Transforming Culinary Spaces with Simplicity, Affordability, and Quality

Before the Centerline lineup was developed, Hobart and Traulsen were well-known and respected within the foodservice industry. Now, with their powers and strengths combined, operators can access a high-end series of commercial equipment without a high-end price tag.

Hobart delivers speed and efficiency with prep station equipment like slicers and mixers. These tools have innovative features that add safety and automation to the food prep process. Traulsen delivers superior refrigeration systems that maintain temperatures even during busy periods.

The Centerline lineup is poised to revolutionize the foodservice industry, and help operators of small and medium-sized businesses get access to top-tier equipment. 

Centerline Dishwashing Equipment

Although three-compartment sinks have been the standard for most foodservice operations, Centerline dishwashers are about to change the game. With under-counter dishwashers, operators can now use a fast and efficient machine instead of slow, tedious manual washing.

A single cycle takes only two minutes, and the device uses sophisticated sensors to help streamline the process. For example, it can adjust the temperature as needed to wash and sanitize any dish type, and it notifies workers when it needs new chemicals.

For kitchens with more space, a door-type dishwasher works best and can process up to 51 racks per hour. No matter how busy the establishment is, these dishwashers can keep up with demand and ensure consistent cleaning with every piece.

Centerline Food Preparation Equipment

When it's busy, operators can't afford to rely on workers and chefs to handle all food preparation by hand. Instead, mixers and slicers can speed up production and allow employees to focus on other, more complicated (or customer-facing) tasks.

Centerline offers two mixer sizes—a 10-quart and a 20-quart model. Both mixers are designed for heavy-duty operation and have advanced safety and efficiency features to help the kitchen run more smoothly.

The EDGE Series slicer works for all needs, including meats, cheeses, and vegetables. The device is easy to master and built to handle high volumes of food. It even has a sanitary anodized aluminum base to help prevent cross-contamination and food waste.

Centerline also offers refrigerated prep tables that help staff prepare food items in advance while keeping them cold for up to four hours. Allows fresh items to be added without the need to slice or dice as you go. 

Centerline Refrigeration Equipment

Food safety is the number one priority for a commercial kitchen. If foods spend too much time in the danger zone (or are cross-contaminated), that leads to waste, customer illnesses, and massive losses. Fortunately, Centerline refrigerators are made by Traulsen, so they're designed to be efficient and trustworthy, no matter how big or small the operation.

The foundation of any kitchen is its reach-in refrigerator or freezer, which allows employees to keep preparing goods and supplies until they're ready to cook. Operators can quickly create and prepare food at prep tables without risking dangerous temperatures.

Blast chillers enable operators to freeze or cool foods faster for high-volume sales or catering events. These chillers are also relatively compact, so they can easily fit into virtually any kitchen setup. Similarly, under-counter refrigerators and freezers work best for smaller kitchens that don't have the space for full-size reach-in models.

Overall, Centerline gives operators convenience and reliability they can trust, all without overloading their budget.
