Pizza Prep

Hoshizaki Rail PanWhat prep do you need? Choose from sandwich, pizza, mega top, and worktop prep tables.

Kitchen operators know best about what makes their operation more efficient and competitive. Hoshizaki engineers listen to difficulties faced by restaurant owners, and provide continuous improvement and innovative, value engineered technology for our equipment. We are pleased to complete the rollout of eleven new refrigerated Pizza Prep models to the Steelheart Series including two 60-inch options. These Pizza Prep tables have been redesigned with patent pending technology that keeps food at ideal temperatures in both the rail and the cabinet while requiring less labor and maintenance since you can leave product in the rail overnight. These new models feature automatic temperature control in night and day modes, one-piece pan rail design, dual controllers with single refrigeration system, optimal airflow in the rail, a front-mounted removable air filter, and built-in heated condensate pan.

52” Refrigerator

Hoshizaki Pass Thru Upright

You asked and we listened. Hoshizaki has taken its durable, standard upright refrigerator and reduced the width to 52 inches, giving customers a more flexible option for kitchens with space constraints. You get the same quality and key features of our standard Steelheart line including top mount ventilation, stainless steel interior and exterior, ducted airflow system, TXV valves, ENERGY STAR certification, and more. With the reduced footprint, you won’t have to compromise on storage capacity because this model contains 47.12 cubic ft of storage space which is just 3 cubic ft less than our standard 55-inch model. You get maximum internal storage capacity with smallest external footprint. These units are ideal for schools and universities, food trucks, and more!

Heated Cabinet

Hoshizaki is offering a Heated Cabinet that would be well suited for foodservice operations in schools and universities, restaurants that cook in large volume, banquet halls, and convention centers. The temperature in the hot holding cabinet can be set from 140F to 180F. Ducted airflow helps maintain consistent air flow throughout the cabin which reduces temperature variations throughout the cabin that can lead to soggy protein at the bottom and dry protein at the top because hot air rises. Both the Reach-In and the Pass-Thru models have a height of 79.5 inches and can roll through a standard door, and as a bonus, there is available storage for sheet pans at the top. 


Hoshizaki America, Inc. is proud to announce that it has received the 2023 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award from the U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the U.S. Department of Energy.
