Lakeside Adjust-A-Fit Drop-In-Dish Levelers

Lakeside Adjust-A-Fit Drop-In-Dish Levelers

Lakeside is a leading manufacturer of self-leveling dish dispensers for the foodservice industry. Today, we’d like to show you the advantages of our Adjust-A-Fit dispensers, which have the ability to adjust for a 3 1/4” range within one dispenser. This particular one right here is set up for a 9” plate, and it has an adjustable range of 6 1/2" to 9 3/4". We would adjust for the spring tension by simply attaching or detaching springs from the carriage. If we wanted to switch over to a 6” bowl, we’d simply remove our plates. Let’s drop in our bowls in the center here. Now, I’m going to adjust our exclusive dish guides in to accommodate for the smaller china size. We’ll have to adjust our spring tension because of the lighter bowl simply by detaching a few more springs from the carriage. So, you can see that I set up for a 6” bowl from a 9” plate on the fly without tools. If you’re looking for total flexibility in a self-leveling dispenser, the Adjust-A-Fit dispensers are the one for you. See all the details at elakesidefoodservice.com.
