HIGHLY COMMENDED: Valera
(Launched September 2014).
Designed with particular regard to the narrow doorways found in many older buildings, the Valera Pronto Slimline serve-over counter is only 800mm deep, meaning this compact yet capacious deli unit can fit easily through most gaps. A special grill provides plenty of ventilation at the front of the cabinet, allowing the unit to be built into a run or placed next to other furniture. The stainless steel, wipe-clean deck of the Pronto slimline unit is complemented with an ambient glass shelf over the rear, providing extra display space, while the entire module is topped with a glass hood, available in either a totally flat or curved design depending on the model. A digital controller makes it easy to adjust and monitor the operating temperature.
