Lincat introduces new generation of advanced combi steamers
Lincat, the UK’s leading manufacturer of commercial catering equipment, has introduced a new generation of advanced Opus SelfCooking Centers. The range includes a new compact model, the Opus SelfCooking Center® XS, which delivers all the power, intelligence and efficiency of its full sized counterparts, from a minimum of floor space.
With a footprint of just 550mm x 655mm, the Opus SelfCooking Center® XS is a 6 x GN2/3 unit, which incorporates all the features and functionality of the larger GN1/1 and GN2/1 models. Perfect for even the smallest kitchen, it can be sited on a counter top or optional wall brackets or floor stands. When combined with a matching UltraVent fume and condensation hood, the XS can be built into any installation, making it great for front of house applications.
Lincat Opus SelfCooking Centers are designed and manufactured by the market leader in the combi sector – Rational. They are identical in every way to current Rational combis, apart from their Lincat badges. Rational works in this way with a single catering equipment manufacturer in every major market, as Helen Applewhite, Marketing Manager of Lincat Ltd, explains…
“Rational chooses a partner in every territory which can offer combis to the market place as part of a broader package, which is to say with other items of cooking equipment. This is because a significant number of customers prefer to buy the most advanced combi technology available, together with other equipment for their kitchen, from a single, trusted, supplier.”
The new Opus SelfCooking Center® takes ease of use to a new level with truly intelligent technology. The touchscreen display has been updated, to make it even more intuitive and a more powerful central processing unit (CPU) has cut the start up time to just 24 seconds. At the same time efficiency is maximised by new LED lighting with optional iLevelControl rack signalling, triple glass doors and an energy consumption display.
