Premium commercial food equipment manufacturer Hobart held its 13th custom-designed mixer giveaway at the 2021 International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas on August 19.

Chris Burris of Pies Place restaurant in Bayville, New Jersey, was announced as the winner of the Hobart Legacy HL662 pizza mixer valued at $20,000. Pies Place specializes in pizzas and traditional and specialty pasta dishes, as well as American cuisine.

The mixer features a colorful design naming it the hardest working, most loved mixer in the industry based on its power and speed.

In addition to a 2.7 horsepower motor and exclusive Variable Frequency Drive technology that can handle the heaviest dough loads, the Legacy HL662 mixer features Shift-on-the-Fly and patented Soft Start technologies. Shift-on-the-Fly helps improve productivity by allowing speed changes during operation, while the Soft Start reduces the chance of product splash-out when the mixer is turned on. It slowly transitions to a higher speed.
