Rubbermaid’s Color-Coded Food Safety Products

April 30, 2018 | No Comments »

Cross contamination can impact both patrons and restaurant operators. Rubbermaid has sought a way to minimize the chance of this happening by introducing a color-coded line of food safety products. 7 different colors (red, green, yellow, tan, blue, white, purple) across a line of spatulas, tongs, cutting boards, lids, and containers can help foodservice operators combat cross contamination.

Spatulas: NSF certified, commercial dishwasher safe, and available in either 9.5” or 13.5” lengths. They are also rated for high heat with a Clean-Rest feature that prevents the blade from touching the counter when laid down.

Tongs: 12” in length and manufactured from 24 gauge stainless steel. They have rubber grips and are commercial dishwasher safe.

Cutting Boards: measures at 15”x 20”x 0.5”. Made with a durable high density polyethylene. They are NSF certified, resist stains, maintain their shape and feature a hanging hole for easy drying. Stainless steel racks are available to organize and air-dry cutting boards while avoiding contact between the surfaces.

Square poly-carbonate and round polyethylene food containers: available in 4 quart, 8 quart, and 12 quart sizes, and all have easy to read measurement graduations. To further prevent cross contamination, Rubbermaid has applied a color-coded stamp for each container to keep matching containers and lids together. Square containers feature durable handles and round containers are stack-able.

Rubbermaid makes it easy to get started with their color-coded kits, which feature a selection of containers, spatulas, cutting boards, and tongs. This comes with an implementation guide and poster to train employees. Available to purchase all the equipment in either one, three, five, or all seven colors, or available for one item in all seven different colors.

Blodgett’s Hydrovection Ovens

April 26, 2018 | No Comments »

Why have Combi ovens been embraced in Europe, but have been slow to catch on in America?

A few reasons might include a lack of familiarity, as well as less confined spaces compared to kitchens in Europe. Combi ovens provide maximum versatility in a smaller footprint, and Blodgett offers a full line of Combis that include their Universal line, Heavy Duty line, Mini Combis, and hoodless “Hoodini” Combis. There is also a full line of Convection Ovens from their Economy Series BDO and SHO ovens, to their Midrange Zephaire models, and their Premium Series DFG and Mark V ovens.

So what do you do if you want something more than a traditional Convection Oven? Blodgett has a steamy option: the Hydrovection Oven. It is much more than a Convection Oven, and at a lower price point than a full blown Combi. It adds steam to the Convection baking process with great results. Cook times are about 30% shorter, and yields are about 20% higher!

But what about familiarity? Blodgett Hydrovection ovens feature manual controls for complete optimization of time, temperature and humidity. They also come with SmartTouch2 controls that allow for USB upload of specific recipe settings that provide maximum simplicity and consistency. Blodgett offers split door design, and solid welded angle iron frames for durability.

So if you’re considering a different option that offers more features and benefits than an old fashioned convection oven, take a look at the Blodgett Hydrovection oven!
