Listening to its customers and developing products specifically to meet the ever-changing needs of catering professionals has always been a priority for UK-based Induced Energy.
And it is something that is also bringing positive benefits to a leukemia charity, the company has revealed.
In July, Hayden Groves, National Chef of the Year 2013 and Executive chef for Baxter Storey, came to IE with a suggestion that it look at producing a stockpot trolley.
The result is the iStock which was unveiled at the Universal Cooking and Food Festival at River Cottage HQ, Dorset.
The unit consists of two parts: a mobile trolley and a single ring induction hob.
The trolley is a fully welded stainless steel base mounted on heavy-duty castors which, when not in use, has the added flexibility of allowing chefs to remove the hob and use it as a table-top unit.
Existing users of the CS300/1 TS induction hob only need to purchase the trolley as their existing hob will fit into the new base.
The unit is powered by a single 13 amp socket (total electrical load 3 Kw) allowing it to be used wherever it is required without the need for costly gas installations.
As a thank you to Hayden for his idea and ongoing support of the Induced Energy brand , Induced Energy will donate £20 from the sale of every base unit sold in 2015 to Hayden’s nominated charity, Cure Leukemia UK, for whom he is undertaking a gruelling 3,344km bike ride along the route of the 2015 Tour de France.
