Hobart chosen by two Michelin-starred sites for sparkling results

Two of the south west’s most famous culinary destinations have chosen Hobart warewashing equipment, through Bristol commercial kitchen dealer, QCM.

Michelin-starred Lucknam Park (pictured), near Bath, needed a new machine, with its current hood type warewasher – that of a Hobart competitor – deemed completely beyond repair. A Hobart AMXS hood type was installed by QCM within just three days of the call.

Lucknam head chef Hywel Jones says he was massively impressed with the speed in which QCM were able to turn the order around, remarking, “We’re extremely happy with the new Hobart and can’t believe how clean everything is coming out in comparison to before.”

Keeping standards high is also a mantra for Bristol’s Casamia, so when the renowned family-run one Michelin star restaurant was looking to source a high spec glasswasher, QCM was there first port of call.

QCM general manager, Gerry Oakley said, “Casamia were after a glasswasher with reverse osmosis to ensure crystal clear results. They had recently invested in beautiful new stemware and needed a machine that would be able to offer the very best finish.

'Following a consultation with both the head chef and bar manager, we suggested Hobart’s GXCROI – an ideal option as it has a large capacity basket and tall wash chamber, perfectly suited to stemmed glassware. I followed up with them post install and they’re absolutely delighted with the performance.”

Crucially, Oakley was able to use Hobart’s 12-month interest-free deal which allowed Casamia to proceed with the sale immediately, reducing pressure on their capital budget and meaning they could install a top of the range machine to ensure optimum wash quality. Hobart assumes the complete cost of the finance immediately, leaving dealers like Gerry free to upsell and reap the rewards.
