Hobart Cooking Solutions has launched the Compact Kitchen Concept, comprised of several modules which can either be purchased separately or suited together to enable 11 different ways to cook.
The Bonnet brand units are said to save up to 40% of kitchen space compared to other cooking equipment and are: the 400mm-wide Equapan multifunctional pan, the Precipan twin multifunctional pan, Minijet combi oven, and Fridge Bloc refrigeration unit.
This cooking range is claimed to be energy efficient, has a footprint of 2.4metres long, and is said to offer 50% lower fuel use compared with a traditional range. Furthermore, no floor gulley is needed, as all the units have internal drainage.
Product manager, Hobart Cooking Solutions, Paul Godfrey said: “The Bonnet Compact Kitchen Concept has been 5 years in the making and sets out to understand the real needs of chefs in a confused market and to clearly define the equipment of tomorrow.
“After significant customer feedback and engagement the Compact Kitchen Concept evolved to meet the needs of chefs, restaurateurs and operators deliver a highly efficient, superior cooking experience produced in a fraction of the space previously demanded by a full size professional range and with no compromise on performance.
“Hobart Cooking Solutions’ aim was to create something which could help future-proof: put the brakes on rising fuel prices; allow precision cooking and flexibility across any menu and at the same time help put more profit on the bottom line.”
