FEM has announced the launch of the Hamilton Beach Commercial Otto Centrifugal Juice Extractor in the UK.
Designed to help busy juice shops handle their heavy workload, the Otto is built to run 24/7 and handle anything that’s thrown at it – skins on or off.
The centrifugal juice extractor’s stamina is down to its powerful yet quiet, brushless induction motor which is cooled by dual fans, ensuring that the Otto is always raring to go.
With a diameter of 76mm, the feed chute is large enough to accommodate anything up to the size of a whole medium-sized apple, which can be helped through using the ergonomically friendly pusher. An easy-to-remove 10-litre pulp bin collects the by-product.
It’s inside the Otto, however, where the wastage is really minimised. Here, a polished stainless steel strainer basket featuring a sharp cutting-blade powers through ingredients, creating smooth juice from potentially tricky customers – it can even juice pieces of prickly pineapple complete with skin.
When it comes to serving up, the Otto sits securely on a countertop and is single speed, for consistent output. It features user-friendly, sealed, touch-screen start and stop buttons, which wipe down easily. Operator safety is secured by a heavy-duty metal handle with a safety lid interlock that stops the motor before the lid is opened.
A funnel-shaped spout helps the juice flow directly down into the vessel awaiting below, cutting out splashes. Meanwhile, the detachable, skid-free drip tray is oversized, making it possible to fit cups, pitchers and blender jars on it.
The Otto is durable in construction and easy-to-clean, with its easy to disassemble components fashioned from stainless steel, aluminium and BPA-free parts.
The Otto measures 322 (W) x 286 (D) x 527mm (H). Its list price is £1,864 plus VAT.
The Hamilton Beach Commercial Otto Centrifugal Juice Extractor is available from FEM distributors with a two years parts and labour warranty.
