Lincat launch next generation of robust, high capacity Panther hot cupboards
Lincat, the UK’s leading manufacturer of commercial catering equipment, has launched a new range of robust, high capacity hot cupboards. The new Panther range of hot cupboards comprises three product categories: 800 Series, 670 Series and Light Duty Series, and has been designed to offer greater versatility and flexibility with a wider choice of unit sizes, options and accessories.
The 800 and 670 Series are available as mobile units supplied with castors and a robust push bar, or as static models with sturdy, adjustable legs. Both series offer a choice of either plain or bain marie tops. They also both feature fan assisted heating and accurate digital thermostatic control to deliver exceptional energy-efficiency, along with fully 1/1 GN compatible mirror stainless steel interiors. Removable doors and shelves also make the units easy to clean and very hygienic.
800mm deep, the 800 Series offers the capacity to meet the needs of the busiest kitchen, and can accommodate between three and six 1/1 GN containers. 800 Series units can also be supplied as ‘pass through’ models, with a set of sliding doors on either side. This series also offers a choice of six overshelves – one, two or three tier, which are each available as ambient units or fitted with quartz heat lamps, and are ideal for holding dishes of food or creating an efficient kitchen pass.
At 670mm deep, the 670 Series hot cupboards can hold between two and five 1/1 GN containers and easily fit through narrow doorways, making them ideal for pubs and smaller restaurants, as well as nursing and care homes. The units also boast four front panel colour options and a choice of two stylish gantries, which are ideal for use in carveries and buffet operations. Each gantry comes complete with a glass sneeze screen to protect food and ensure good hygiene standards. Highly energy-efficient, 670 Series units achieve a 25% reduction in electricity usage compared with their predecessors.
The Light Duty Series comprises four static models, including a new slim 360mm width unit. Ideal for smaller establishments with limited space, the Light Duty Series models are perfect for warming plates or holding food and are supplied with adjustable and accurate thermostatic control as standard, along with three chrome-plated shelves.
“Designed in response to customer research, our new Panther hot cupboards are robust, hygienic and highly energy-efficient and, with an even wider range of unit sizes, options and accessories available, offer outstanding functionality and flexibility,” said Nick McDonald, Marketing Director of Lincat Ltd. “Whether customers need to warm plates, transport food, form a servery or create a kitchen pass, we have a Panther hot cupboard to suit all requirements.”
The new range is available from Lincat’s network of dealers. Typical prices begin at £330 for the Light Duty Series, followed by £700 for the 670 Series and £940 for the 800 series.
