Nine Products Are “Best In Show” At N.Y. Hotel Show

An Italian manufacturer’s unique heated food processor won the top award at the 95th annual International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show on Nov. 14 at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Judges reviewed nearly 100 submissions of new, cutting-edge products within the categories of E&S, design, guest amenities, linens and technology, as well as an eco-friendly equivalent to each of these categories.

The top E&S award and the Kenneth F. Hine “Best of Show” award went to Hotmixpro-Cooking Pleasure of Modena, Italy, for HotmixPRO, which operates simultaneously as both a mixer for blending liquids and a cutter for chopping solid ingredients, and is complemented by a heating system for cooking and warming. The award for “green” equipment and supplies was given to Systemfiltration Inc. of Milford, N.J., for the VITO Oil Filter System. The Germany-based company says its system saves as much as 50% of oil cost.

A complete list of winners, including Cintas Corp.’s washable tuxedo made of recycled plastic bottles, is at the IHMRS web site.
