Lincat adds powerful, single tank fryer to heavy duty Opus 700 range
Lincat, the UK’s leading manufacturer of commercial catering equipment for cooking, holding and display, has added a powerful, yet compact single tank electric fryer to its Opus 700 range of heavy duty cooking equipment. With accurate temperature control and rapid recovery, the new 14kW, 400mm wide OE7114 is designed to deliver maximum output from a minimum of floor space.
With the capacity to cook 99lbs / 45kg of chips per hour from chilled, the new OE7114 is equal to the demands of the busiest commercial kitchen. Its fully welded tank and removable batter plate make it easy to clean. Safe operation and consistent results are ensured by its close tolerance thermostat, which provides accurate temperature control from 130°C to190°C. A tank lid and two spun wire nickel plated frying baskets are supplied as standard.
“Some people still think of Lincat as suppliers mainly of light duty equipment. But since its launch in 1999, we have supplied Opus 700 equipment to a total value of £25 million”, said Nick McDonald, Marketing Director of Lincat. “Such huge sales, we believe, are testament to the quality and value offered by the Opus 700 range. The launch of the new OE7114 is an indication of our commitment to the Opus 700 range, and our determination to offer ever greater choice and value.”
There are no fewer than 12 fryers to choose from in the Opus 700 range, with a choice of gas or electric, single or twin tank, and with or without built-in oil filtration. The electric models feature hinged ‘lift-and-park’ elements and the gas models are externally fired. Both of these designs allow unobstructed access to the fryer tanks for ease of cleaning. The tanks have inclined bases and large bore drain valves to aid draining. As with all products in the Lincat Opus 700 range, the new fryer is supplied with a two-year parts and labour warranty as standard.
