Keeping Customers Safe with Fisher Foot Valves

October 11, 2017 | No Comments »

Keeping the food safe you serve your guests is a number one priority of any restaurant. If people get sick, they may not return, and word gets out quickly.

One of the mistakes people often make is touching the water faucet. You turn it on with dirty hands, contaminating the handle. This now contaminated handle is turned off with clean hands.

The best solution for this problem is high-quality foot valves from Fisher Manufacturing! Available in chrome polished stainless steel or brass, with stainless steel seats and anodized aluminum pedals, they are ideal for employee areas and commercial kitchens. Employees can control the flow of the water without ever touching the sink. Dual pedal models allow for hot or cold water. Configurations include floor mount or wall mount. Fisher even offers “knee valve” variations.

You can be assured that you receive a quality product too, as Fisher uses industry standard seats and gaskets and their stainless steel seats are guaranteed for life. All valves are self-closing so when the employee steps away, the water turns off. Renewable cartridges make for simple maintenance if gaskets ever become worn.

Fisher can help you keep your food and your customers safe with hands-free foot valves for every type of commercial kitchen sink!

Robot Coupe’s Blixer

September 25, 2017 | No Comments »

Originally designed to be a solution to healthcare foodservice operators to completely puree food without any lumps or chunks, Robot Coupe’s Blixer is great for more than just healthcare foodservice.

Most blenders need additional liquid to prevent cavitation on certain foods, and when water is added to portions, it dilutes the food and lowers the nutritional content per portion. Many traditional bowl type food processors also lack the required horsepower and speed to completely puree many foods. These processors also need to be stopped from time to time to manually scrape food and chunks away from the sides.

The Blixer solves these issues. The Blixer is a cross between a blender and a cutter/mixer, and features a high horsepower industrial strength motor, stainless steel bowl, serrated blades, and speeds up to 3600 rpm, allowing the Blixer to quickly puree almost any food without the need for additional liquids! A manual scraper arm can be turned, while processing continues, to push lumps and chunks of food back toward the spinning blades. Countertop Blixers are available in capacities from 2.5 quarts up to 20 quarts, and floor model Blixers can handle even larger jobs.

Check out Robot Coupe’s website to read more about Blixers and the many features that are found in their lineup!
