Hamilton Beach Commercial Appliances

Vendor Spotlight: Hamilton Beach

Hamilton Beach appliances are a fixture in households across the country. Hamilton Beach Commercial, the company’s global commercial brand, is highly regarded for their continuous innovations in food and bar blenders, juicers, warmers and cookers, and other product lines. Their durable products can be seen in hotels, restaurants and bars worldwide. Founded in the early 1900s by Louis H. Hamilton and Chester Beach, Hamilton Beach is now celebrating more than a century of leading the way in commercial appliance technology.

Beach’s creation of a universal electric motor that operated on both alternating and direct currents was a game changer. At the time, this new technology was used to power sewing machines and other attachments, thereby ending the era of treadle sewing machines and other muscle-powered chores. Building momentum from this early success, Hamilton and Beach were able to pioneer their way to others, marketing many new innovations, like electric fans, glass washers and vacuum cleaners, under their Hamilton Beach name.

Hamilton Beach Drink Mixers

Perhaps one of the greatest Hamilton Beach staples is the electric drink mixer. First created in 1911, their original drink mixer created quite the sensation, quickly mixing up malts for customers across America. As the twentieth century progressed, one could hardly step inside any soda fountain or ice cream parlor without spotting a Hamilton Beach mixer. And even though times change and technology advances, even though soda fountains have since faded into nostalgia, one can still spot Hamilton Beach blenders and mixers at nearly any restaurant bar or establishment serving up smoothies or ice cream treats.

Hamilton Beach’s HMD400 Three Spindle Drink Mixer is one of their most popular mixers on the market because it mixes nearly twice as fast as other three spindle mixers with an automatic start/stop operation.

Hamilton Beach Bar Blenders

In addition to mixers, Hamilton Beach’s line of commercial bar blenders range from light duty to high performance, depending on intended use. The popular Hamilton Beach HBB908 Light Duty Bar Blender is one of their most economical blenders enabling smaller establishments to add high profit frozen drinks to their menu at a low upfront cost.

It’s not, however, ideal for bars with high volume.  The Hamilton Beach HBH550 three-horsepower Fury high performance bar blender is. This model features an all-metal drive coupling that’s built to last.

Coming back to Central’s catalog is the Hamilton Beach HBS1400 Revolution Ice Shaver and Blender. This model offers precise ice portion control and can make up to four 16 oz. drinks at a time. One of the main features of this model is the sensor technology that alerts the users to ensure the hopper lid is in place or if the drain line is full. The double-wall hopper minimizes noise while keeping ice solid.

Make your Kitchen More Efficient with Hobart Slicers

There are many items kept in the kitchen, that can contain bacteria and other hazards to food, if not cleaned properly. Food slicers are main items that are often found in most kitchens but require proper use and cleanliness.

There are different slicer options available to help keep your slicer clean while keeping your kitchen productive and efficient.

Removable parts

Slicers that have removable blades and as many parts as possible, reduce the risk of bacteria settling. Kitchen employees are also more likely to clean slicers, more frequently and thoroughly, if the parts are easier to take apart and clean.

When choosing a slicer, you should also consider one that offers a zero blade exposure at all times. This way the operator will have minimal exposure to the blade, even when the machine is apart and they are cleaning.

Considering a slicer that uses cobalt-edged knives, also offers more efficiency. It helps the knife stay sharper and have a longer life. Because the knife stays sharper, it reduces the time spent on sharpening and changing the blade.

A removable top cover is also helpful to keep your slicer clean. If the top cover can be taken off and brought to the sink or dishwasher, it offers a more thorough clean

Additional options

No volt release: This function allows for a “reset” of the machine if the power is lost. This reduces the risk of injury when the power is restored.

Home-Start: This function prevents an operator from starting in the middle of a stroke. The slicer must be brought “home” in order to begin. Some units also have an automatic shut off function after 30 seconds of inactivity.

Gas assist lift: This function allows operators to easily raise and lower the unit to clean underneath.

Advanced Tabco Gets Your Party Started!

Summer has officially begun and so has the outdoor season! Ensure that your guests have a good time, no matter the location by serving drinks inside, or outside with Portable Bars by Advance Tabco.

Whether it’s for your outdoor patio, weddings, banquets, or even indoor events; Advance Tabco offers a wide variety of portable bar options, for your business’s needs.

Features include ice bins with drain valves, glass rack storage, speed rails, and towel rings. Heavy-duty models are also available, they include stainless steel interior, worktops and sides, insulated ice bin, heavy duty 6” casters, stainless steel speed rails and perimeter bumpers.

Light Weight vs. Heavy Duty

Lightweight bars are typically made of lightweight plastic, but still durable enough to hold up to the elements and be wheeled around. If your need is more event-based, and not to constantly have a bar set-up in the same area every time, then the lightweight bar is what you need.

Heavy duty portable bars are typically made from stainless steel. While they can be wheeled around, these are not ones that you would use to constantly move around. These are best suited for an outdoor bar at a restaurant, where it would not be moved as much. These can be a cheaper alternative option to a permanent outdoor bar.

Why Choose Advance Tabco?


Customization options allow you to pick any color, size, and material to fit your needs.
