Two versatile and powerful clam griddles have been added to the Opus 800 range of heavy duty catering equipment.

Able to cook twice as quickly as standard griddles, by cooking both sides of the food simultaneously, they are perfect for burgers, steaks and chicken. Juices are sealed quickly, flavour is locked in and, with a 3 position plate height adjuster, they can accommodate portions of different shapes and sizes.

Two base models are available: the 400 wide, 8.6kW, single-head OE8211 and the twin-head OE8210, which is 800mm wide and offers a power rating of 17.2kW. Ribbed upper plates are available as an option.

In addition to meat, Opus 800 clam griddles can be used for a wide range of other menu items too, as Paul Hickman, Lincat’s Development Chef, explains…

“We have customers using Opus 800 clam griddles for toasted sandwiches, pancakes and even a full cooked breakfast of sausages, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms and eggs. They are perfect for meat of course and ideal for gourmet burgers of different types and sizes, thanks to the plate height adjuster.”

Precise thermostatic control and individual digital timers on each clam plate help to produce perfect results, no matter how busy the kitchen. Independently controlled cooking zones provide greater flexibility and economy during quieter periods. A scraper and non-stick PTFE sheets are provided as standard.
