Hobart announced the launch of its HS Series heavy-duty slicer. In designing the new slicer, the company rigorously applied the revised NSF/ANSI 8-2010 standard. The HS Series includes not only sealed seams, compliant fasteners and removable parts for easy cleaning, but also patented features for better overall operation with every slice. The new Hobart HS Series heavy-duty slicer is available in manual as well as automatic models. The HS Series units will be available for order on 12/3/12 with shipping and delivery on 1/02/13. 

“The changes required by the NSF 8 guidelines presented an opportunity to design a heavy-duty slicer that combines the best of the Hobart 2000 and 3000 Series product lines into a new platform,” said Elyce Hall, product line manager of Hobart Food Prep and Slicing. “As a result, the HS Series offers legendary Hobart innovation and reliability, and delivers better overall value for customers.”

Hobart’s patented CleanCut knife offers a thin-edge design that provides improved yield, consistent cuts and reduced cost of ownership. By utilizing a 13” stainless steel knife with stellite-alloy edge, the CleanCut knife lasts significantly longer than other knives on the market. The sharpener comes with Borazon stones that have a lifetime warranty. The sharpener is mounted on the HS slicer and is easy to operate while keeping the knife-edge shielded.
