Shopping at Redner's

Postby beachlion » Mon Feb 12, 2018 9:01 pm

@Moonshadow. Last Saturday I noticed for the first time equipment from your new company. Normally my attention is with the ladies behind the counter of the deli but this time only guys. And then I saw 2 slicers in the back. The next thought was that I could wear a skirt while I was watching you having to do servicing in pants. There must be something wrong in this world. ;)

Congratulations with your new job. I know what it is to work for a company that makes you feel to be a member of a large family. As we say in the Netherlands, you don't go to work with lead in your shoes.

Given Moon's chosen work milieu, I can certainly see the point in the restrictions on clothing, and even down to flame-retardant clothing. I know that if I was doing that I'd be so attired no matter what my preference is off-the-clock. Cuts, dings, and burns in flesh are no fun at all. For instance, even in my fairly clean an non-obnoxious field if I know I'm going to be crawling around on the floor pulling cables or some other bit of manual labour I will wear trousers out of choice.

On the note of a close-knit company, I know the virtues of those very well indeed from experience. Most aren't. If Moon's is, he should cherish that and treat it like solid gold. I like the Dutch comment about lead in one's shoes. It rings nicely.

With 35 year in shipbuilding, I'm a fanatic on safety. I have seen too many bloody things, I still have my guard up. I still walk up or down stairs with one hand at the railing.

The Dutch have a lot of silly sayings. They are getting more silly when translated. More about shoes: He was so proud of himself, he walked beside his shoes.

Yep, you'll see their equipment the world over! I think over in Europe they even work in residences, but I may be mistaken.

Hobart is active in Europe. I'm not sure if they are available for private persons. They have a branch office in the Netherlands. http://www.hobartnederland.nl/

For years we had a good Dutch company, Van Berkel, but it is now part of a bigger US company. If you want to grow, eat the competition.

For those of you that have a Kitchen Aid mixer in your kitchen, you can thank Hobart for that. They no longer make the home mixer but have sold it to another company that kept the name and pretty much the quality too.

I think that, in the UK at least, the Hobart name is only seen in commercial kitchens - whether there are other brand names that appear domestically may be another story, but I am not familiar with it.
