The growing ubiquity of induction equipment in commercial kitchens has led Lincat to strengthen its offering in the segment.
The British manufacturer said today that it has added the IH3 single cooking zone and IH42 four cooking zone induction hobs to its tabletop portfolio.
Lincat added that the new lines build on the IH21 two cooking zone model, which it launched three years ago.
All three units are equipped with 13amp plugs (two in the case of the IH42) so that they can be moved to where they are needed, plugged in and switched on.
The Lincat induction hobs typically offer 90% efficiency, as compared with a solid electric hotplate at 55% and a gas hob at 50%, according to Lincat.
“Ideal for warming soups, making sauces, or rapidly boiling large pans of vegetables or pasta, our new table-top induction hobs will help businesses to reduce energy consumption, cut costs and increase safety in the kitchen,” stated Helen Applewhite, marketing manager at Lincat.
The new table-top induction hobs are manufactured at Lincat’s factory in Lincoln from heavy duty components, including 6mm thick, high impact-resistant Schott Ceran glass ceramic surfaces.
