Why should I invest in a plate dispenser?

Whilst plate dispensers are relatively basic products, they can play a crucial role in streamlining your commercial catering operations.

Whether they are placed at a conveyor belt or at a serving point, adding a plate dispenser to your commercial catering facility simplifies your processes whilst adding flexibility and simplification to your operation. This piece of equipment will ensure your crocker is organised and ready for action anywhere from the meal make-up conveyor line to a customer-facing serving station.

There are many different types of plate dispensers out there, and it can be overwhelming to choose the right one for your foodservice establishment – but we do recommend you implement some sort of plate dispensing system in your organisation to maximise efficiency.

With various features and functions, the plate dispenser market can seem confusing. Let’s talk about the key benefits of the Hupfer options to help you understand better why you should invest in a plate dispenser.

Standard Hupfer Plate Dispenser

This particular plate dispenser, like all Hupfer products, was designed with the end user in mind. It has three separate crockery sections in the plate stacking compartment which help you stay organised. They are easily adjustable without the need for tools to keep it simple for the operator.

Manufactured out of high-quality stainless steel, the exterior of this unit and the strategically placed opening in the base plate allow for easy cleaning.

Plate dispenser with cooling slots

This dispenser has surrounding cooling slots to ensure a rapid cooling of the tableware placed inside. In comparison to other plate dispensers in the Hupfer range, this one is much smaller and lighter than its sister products. It does however, also feature our popular ergonomically shaped push handles on the corners of the unit to guarantee effective and safe handling.

Heated Plate Dispenser

Made from the same durable stainless steel outer casing as the previous models, the Hupfer heated plate dispenser helps to reduce heating times thanks to the polycarbonate cover hood with 3-point locking mechanism. The hood also limits any heat loss, making it a great environmentally friendly choice.

Heated by a stainless steel tubular heating element, the unit is simply operated through the use of an On/Off switch complete with an integrated indicator light. The unit is thermostat-controlled via a temperature controller that is easy to read even from a distance, with a built-in temperature limiter for maximum safety.

There is also a fan-assisted heated option available.

In-counter plate dispenser

The Hupfer in-counter plate dispenser is slightly different from the others. The open design features an open stacking compartment and plastic-coated stacking platform. This in-counter plate dispenser is perfect for improving the longevity of your crockery.
