What's Happening - Updates & Conversations

Venue Feature: Duke of Kent

The Duke of Kent is the local watering hole in Wagga Wagga, rural New South Wales, and we have recently received some feedback that they are huge fans of their new Hoshizaki Ice Machine, installed earlier this year.

Pictured above, the venue saw an increasing demand to upgrade their equipment to keep up with the traffic flow of thirsty customers. So we stepped in and installed a KM515 Hoshizaki Ice Machine.

Licensee and owner of The Duke of Kent, Christopher Egan, was inspired after spotting a promotion as part of the annual Australia-wide U.G.L.Y Bartender of the Year Campaign, and decided jump the gun and upgrade.

Ice machines - a new accessory to outdoor entertainment

Author: Hoshizaki Lancer / Published Date: 15 April 2013

Categories: Ice Machines

A recent trend has appeared – personal ice machines for both indoor and outdoor kitchens.

Imagine having your friends and family over to entertain them, and having the liberty of offering them some ice out of your very own ice machine!

Small ice machines are increasingly being installed in the kitchens of new and remodeled homes and are now on the specification lists of many high-end luxury apartment builders, according to Joe Thorp, our managing director. Not to mention, there have also been some installations occurring on luxury yachts – for a high class sailor indeed!

Joe feels that the Aussie climate is well suited to outdoor living and homeowners are increasingly treating their outdoor areas less as a backyard and more like an outdoor room.

"The days of the portable barbeque being wheeled out of the shed have been replaced by a range of built-in bench tops, range hoods, pizza ovens, bar fridges and sinks.”

The more popular model is the IM-30 ice machine, which has the capacity to produce up to 22 kilograms of crystal clear ice cubes per day in temperatures of up to 40 degrees. The IM-30 has a stainless steel finish and fits neatly into the design of new custom build outdoor kitchens or existing kitchens, as you can see in the above photo.

Well we can't wait to see more of this happening. Imagine the backyard festivities!

Feel-good cooking by OzHarvest, with Maggie Beer, George Calombaris, Peter Gilmore, Bill Granger and Neil Perry

Author: Hoshizaki Lancer / Published Date: 8 April 2013

Categories: Company News & Media

The past year has been a successful one for the team at OzHarvest, a charity dedicated to collecting excess food from restaurants, retailers, food outlets and corporate kitchens (that would otherwise be discarded) to deliver it to charities that feed Australians in need.

OzHarvest delivered 5.34 million meals nationally in FY2012! An awesome effort, of which we were proud to assist by donating two new Hoshizaki HRE140B 2-door Reach-in Refrigerators featuring full stainless steel construction, Gastro norm specifications, lockable heavy duty castors and off cycle defrost. We donated one to the new OzHarvest kitchen in Adelaide at Pooraka (as well as a pass through dishwasher) and the other to the OzHarvest "Cook for a Cause" program in Sydney.

The Cook for a Cause sessions are coordinated weekly for volunteers and supporters of OzHarvest who come and literally do just that - Cook for a Cause! They provide a great team building opportunity, raise funds for OzHarvest and of course produce beautifully cooked food that is then delivered to some of the 300 charitable organizations that OzHarvest Sydney collaborate with.

We are also proud to provide ongoing support to OzHarvest, by purchasing a number of their latest release - a superb cookbook (pictured above, courtesy of blog.ozsale.com.au) which features 'food rescue' recipes from 44 of Australia's most celebrated chefs such as Maggie Beer, George Calombaris, Peter Gilmore, Bill Granger and Neil Perry. All proceeds from the book will go to OzHarvest.

You can purchase the book via their website.

We are gladly giving these away as wonderful corporate gifts to our valued customers and staff.

A superb effort by the team so far. Congratulations OzHarvest!
