R e s t a u r a n t D a i l y N e w s 1 1 1 M o n d a y, M a y 2 3 , 2 0 1 6 Manufactured by Excel Dryer, the patent- ed high-speed, energy-efficient XLERA- TOR ® Hand Dryer has restaurateurs throwing in the towels, literally. The XLERATOR dries hands in 10 seconds and uses 80 percent less energy than con- ventional hand dryers. XLERATOR Hand Dryers represent a 95 percent cost savings verses paper towels. Environmental sustainability and decreasing the carbon footprint, while also providing the best in customer satisfac- tion, has become increasingly more important to restaurateurs. In fact, due to its ability to conserve energy and signifi- cantly reduce waste, the XLERATOR was the first hand dryer to be GreenSpec listed. "Excel Dryer's analysis proves that high-speed, energy-efficient hand dryers not only provide a significant cost sav- ings, but they are better for the environ- ment. XLERATOR is a real win-win solu- tion for small business owners, and we are thrilled to have installed five XLER- ATOR Hand Dryers at The Pizza Shoppe, one for every restroom," said Tony Giuggio, Owner of the Massachusetts based restaurant, The Pizza Shoppe. As restaurants become more envi- ronmentally sustainable in energy, water, waste, food, chemicals, disposables and building, the XLERATOR is no different; it has also been endorsed by the Green Restaurant Association (GRA) as the best environmental solution in the hand dryer category. Recently, Excel Dryer expanded and enhanced its product line. It now features adjustable speed and sound, HEPA Filtration System, adjustable heat set- tings, multi-voltage options and more. Combined with the most complete line of options and accessories, the best hand drying solution can be designed for any Ex cel D ryer (C o nt'd. fro m p. 1 ) washroom environment. The ThinAir ® Hand Dryer is a high- efficiency model that is surface-mounted and ADA-compliant. The ThinAir Hand Dryer features adjustable speed and sound control, variable heat settings and a washable pre-filter. The filter for both the XLERATOR and the ThinAir is designed to easily be detached, cleaned and reattached. "We wanted top of the line, cutting edge technology. So when we were look- ing for a hand dryer, we wanted exactly that," said Jay Fisher, Director of Operations/Partner Buffalo Wild Wings. The XLERATOR's speed, effective- ness and proven performance have made it the new industry standard by which conventional hand dryers are judged. The XLERATOR is unique in that while most green products take years to realize sav- ings, the XLERATOR typically produces a positive ROI in year one. "If you look at other hand dryers out there in the market, nothing compares. The XLERATOR dries hands completely … they are absolutely the best-in-class and better than anything we looked at, which is why from day one, that is what we put in our facilities," said Sarah Morin, Franchise Owner, Buffalo Wild Wings. Excel Dryer continues to innovate and set new industry standards. Facilities around the world use Excel Hand Dryers to create clean, modern washrooms that set the standard for sustainability and efficiency.

JS: Flat top griddles need to be cleaned frequently to prevent grease, fats and oils from building up on the surface. A prop- erly cleaned griddle lasts longer, main- tains performance more effectively, maintains health and safety standards and prevents the transfer of unwanted flavors to food. RDN: But with so many choices out there, how do you know which cleaning method to choose? JS: It's true there are many options, from grill bricks to brushes, scrapers and even special cleaners, but most of these meth- ods are labor-intensive, messy and some- times even dangerous for foodservice workers. The Scotch-Brite™ Quick Clean Griddle Cleaning System was spe- cially designed to be faster, safer and eas- ier to use than traditional griddle cleaning products. Our griddle cleaning liquid is the only one that has been Green Seal Certified™, and the griddle pad is certi- fied by HACCP International as being 3 M (C o nt'd. fro m p. 1 ) "Food Safe" and "Fit for Purpose." RDN: How fast is fast? JS: Three to five minutes. That's 40 per- cent faster than traditional griddle clean- ing systems, based on time to clean equivalently soiled griddle surfaces. How's that for fast? RDN: How does it work? JS: All it takes is three easy steps: squirt, scour and squeegee. No rinsing required, no messy residue and no need for a sepa- rate degreaser. Start by squirting Scotch-Brite Quick Clean Liquid onto a medium hot griddle, then scour the surface with the Scotch- Brite Heavy Duty Griddle Pad. Then sim- ply squeegee away any excess dirty liquid and you're done. The long handles of the pad holder and the squeegee were also spe- cially designed to help prevent burns by keeping hands away from the hot surface, so you can move quickly and confidently.

Built to Perform, Last and Save A winner of the Kitchen Innovations ® 2015 Award presented by the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show ® , the Montague Glycol Ice and Heat unit is the ultimate tool for helping chefs better prepare their most sophisticated dishes. Infused with famous Montague quality, it combines many high-tech features with tough 304 stainless steel construction to deliver superior performance, longer life and sig- nificant cost savings. Available in lengths from 36 inches to 72 inches, this compact but versatile unit saves space and labor by putting everything right at chefs' fingertips, including a chilled raised rail, powerful 30,000 BTU raised-port star burners, plus large refrigerated drawers designed to keep raw ingredients at a consistent temperature. Precision-ground heavy- duty cast iron grates support easy sliding of even the biggest pots and pans. Mo ntague C o mpany (C o nt'd. fro m p. 1 ) All About Cool Innovation The refrigerated base of the Glycol Ice and Heat Sauté Station is cooled by a Turbo Coil powered evaporator coil made from 304 stainless steel for superi- or life, and is epoxy-coated to resist dam- age, moisture and debris. In addition, the station employs a glycol system to keep the raised rail at an even temperature without icing. Refrigerant is pumped through stainless steel tubing submerged in glycol, cooling the glycol and chilling the pans. Environmentally friendly R290 refrigeration with glycol means zero GWP (global warming potential), and satisfies tough Kyoto and Montreal Protocols. Chef-friendly, energy-efficient and eco-smart, Montague's new Glycol Ice and Heat Sauté Station proves that it's possible to be very cool and very hot at the very same time. From ranges to ovens, fryers and more, Montague has been dedicated to bringing the world premium-quality cooking equipment since 1857.

SD: CDN specializes in kitchen meas- urement tools, including thermometers, timers and scales, offering a wide assort- ment from basic to unique, as well as custom devices and private label units. We're one of the fastest growing foodser- vice suppliers in our field, and our prod- ucts are used in over 15,000 foodservice locations worldwide, including large international coffee and restaurant chains. RDN: What would you say makes your company unique? SD: We offer the 'best of both worlds' as a global category leader with the person- al service and commitment of a company that has been family-owned for over 30 years. RDN: Why did you decide to expand into scales this year? SD: Scales are a great fit for us, and we're excited about debuting them at the NRA Show. Our thermometer and timer business is highly developed, with over 90 models in the line, so it's time to intro- duce something new. Our customers have been asking for scales, because of our track record in precision measuring instruments. Our new line includes digi- tal and mechanical scales, including pro- fessional models with special features. RDN: What new thermometers are you introducing this year? SD: One of our biggest product introduc- tions is our ProAccurate ® Infrared Gun/Thermocouple Thermometer (INTP662). It combines two advanced systems in one professional tool, with infrared for non-contact surface tempera- tures and a thermocouple probe for inter- nal temperatures. It offers advanced fea- tures, such as integrated HACCP color- C D N (C o nt'd. fro m p. 1 ) coded backlighting that instantly shows if temperatures are within HACCP guide- lines for safe food temperatures. Another new model is the CDN Floating Thermometer (FT220), for sous- vide cooking, specialty baking, brewing beer and other culinary projects that hinge on the ability to keep water at the right temperature. It makes it easy to accurately measure liquid temperatures because of its reliable technology, intu- itive operation and ability to float. RDN: What else is new for the NRA Show? SD: Our CDN Bluetooth ® Dual Probe Thermometer & Timer (BT482) links to mobile iOS and Android devices via an exclusive CDN app, for the convenience of remote control and monitoring of cooking times, temperatures and more. It stands out for its digital connectivity and advanced features, such as its anticipa- tion feature that predicts when food will be cooked to perfection in time or degrees. Catering to the gourmet tea trend, our Tea Timer (TMT1) makes it easy to brew green, white, black or herbal teas correctly, preventing bitterness and allowing each tea to fully develop its unique flavors. It streamlines operations, simplifies training, and adds an extra layer of quality control to tea service with one-button selection of the right amount of steeping time for any type of tea. RDN: What distinguishes CDN from the competition? SD: Our focus on innovation, quality and value sets us apart. For example, our field calibration thermometer adds value for a lifetime of use. Digital ther- mometers without this have to be dis- carded after the thermometer loses accuracy.
