Lincat adds two electric chargrills to heavy duty Opus 700 range
Lincat, the UK’s leading manufacturer of commercial catering equipment for cooking, holding and display, has added two powerful, high output electric chargrills to its heavy duty Opus 700 range of prime cooking equipment.
Electric chargrills are often not as fast or powerful as their gas counterparts, but the new electric 11.2kW and 2 x 8.25kW models from Lincat are capable of cooking 75 and 110 steaks per hour respectively. This makes them more than capable of meeting the rapid cooking requirements of the largest commercial kitchen.
Lincat’s new electric chargrills impart an authentic chargrilled or barbecued flavour to food, through the controlled ignition of fat and flaring. Food quality is also enhanced by an in-built water bath, which provides humidity to help keep food succulent and reduce shrinkage.
The new chargrills incorporate independently controlled multiple heat zones for maximum versatility, whilst removable, durable, segmented cast iron grids impart attractive branding marks to food.
“Chargrilled or barbecued food is an increasingly popular option for diners. However it’s often not quite so popular with the kitchen staff who have to clean equipment at the end of a busy session,” said Nick McDonald, Marketing Director of Lincat Ltd.
“Our electric chargrills are easy to use and straightforward to clean. With hinging, interlocked elements and an integral water bath with a front drainage tap, the process couldn’t be simpler.”
These new models can either be plumbed into the mains water supply, to allow the water bath to be filled easily, or filled manually. Safety is enhanced by a high temperature safety cut-out for protection should the water bath run dry. All are supplied as counter-top units but can be mounted on optional floor stands.
Lincat Ltd manufactures one of the world’s most comprehensive ranges of catering equipment. Products are sold throughout the UK and in over 50 countries overseas through a network of international distributors.
