The Challenge of Building the Ideal Commercial Juicer

Hamilton Beach Commercial has been in the juicing business since 1932, when we first introduced the iconic 932 manual citrus juicer. So when we began designing otto™ the Juice Extractor, the newest addition to the FreshMark™ family of commercial juicers, we had a lofty goal: to build the best centrifugal juicer out there.

Achieving the ideal balance of speed, durability, flavor and yield was a formidable challenge. Based on feedback from our partners in the field, our engineers have spent more than two years fine-tuning components of otto. “This is the most testing we’ve ever done on a product,” observes Karen Williams-Roman, Global Commercial Product Manager for Hamilton Beach Commercial. Here’s what we looked at — and what you should consider when you’re investing in a commercial juice extractor.

Trend Watch: Boozy Ice Cream

Alcohol has long been used as a flavoring in ice cream, but eating a quart of rum raisin never got anyone buzzed.

Until now.

Enter the ice cream “barlour” — an ice cream shop that serves spiked scoops.

From an operator’s perspective, the boozy ice-cream trend is attractive for several reasons. One, the check sizes — $12 to $15 for some popular chains, according to Nation’s Restaurant News. Two, it offers multiple streams of revenue: catering weddings and company parties, selling pints to go, and online ordering/delivery, where local laws allow. Three, alcoholic ice cream melds well with other concepts, such as coffee, milkshakes and dessert cafés.

The first question people ask: “Will this ice cream get me drunk?”  The answer is typically no, although a four-ounce serving of 5% ABV ice cream may produce a modest buzz.
