Lincat introduces heavy duty electric solid top range oven
Lincat, the UK’s leading manufacturer of commercial catering equipment, has added an electric solid top range, the OE7015, to its Opus 700 range of heavy duty equipment.
The new range is designed to provide the versatility and flexibility of a gas solid top for customers who, through choice or necessity, are looking for an electric option. Featuring a powerful electric solid top and fast, twin-fan assisted oven, the new OE7015 brings speed, control and reliability to the all-electric kitchen.
The new range’s twin zone, full width heavy duty hot plate maximises the available cooking space. Its two 2.7kW and two 2kW elements produce controllable heat gradient throughout the cast iron plate. The central areas are perfect for rapid boiling, the outer zones for simmering and holding. An outer edge channel helps to contain spills within the plate area.
The twin fan assisted oven, produces even heat leading to consistent results, with precise thermostatic control from 130oC to 265oC. Double insulated doors and side and back panels ensure safe operation, efficiency and economy. At the same time, removable vitreous enamelled oven liners, floor plate and shelf supports ensure that the oven is easy to clean. Three shelves and five shelf positions help to maximise oven space.
“Electric ranges have grown in popularity in recent years due, we think, to the legal requirement for gas models to be positioned under powered extraction canopies fitted with an interlock, which can add considerably to the cost of installation”, said Nick McDonald, Marketing Director of Lincat Ltd. “It’s good therefore to be able to extend our range, with the addition of a heavy duty solid top electric model, which provides unrivalled speed, control and reliability.”
Lincat Ltd manufactures one of the world’s most comprehensive ranges of catering equipment. Products are sold in the UK and in over 50 countries worldwide through a comprehensive network of distributors. Lincat Ltd is a member company of the Middleby Corporation.
