Middleby Group brand Lincat has added a raft of new products to its portfolio. These comprise the Phoenix induction oven range, three new FriFri fryers and a new FriFri griddle.
Available in May, the Phoenix induction oven range is designed to be powerful, energy efficient and robustly built.
The induction hob top is said to be easy-to-clean and constructed from 6mm thick high-impact resistant glass. It features six 1.85kW induction zones, with in-built pan detection to conserve energy.
If additional power and flexibility is required, three can be boosted to 3kW, whilst the others continue to deliver 0.7kW.
Below, a fan-assisted 6kW oven should provide fast heat up times and is able to accommodate six 1/1 gastronorms. Heavy duty castors, to facilitate cleaning, are provided as standard.
The new oven was on display at this month’s Hotelympia, where visitors also got a first glimpse of the three new FriFri fryers Lincat launched in January.
Two of the new models are free-standing versions of the 622 built-in models in the Basic + and Vision ranges. The third is a 622 Super Easy, which is not currently available as a built-in model.
All three are capable of producing over 60kg of chips or fried food per hour, whilst the Basic + and Vision 622s are claimed to offer the function and performance of their built-in counterparts in a robust, free-standing format.
Another addition is the FriFri electric griddle, which is said to feature a high specification, flat bar element. This should transfer heat efficiently to the griddle plate, and its low power density should ensure longevity.
The 15mm thick chromed griddle plate is designed to be easy to clean, radiate relatively little heat into the kitchen environment and save energy. Constructed from 307 grade stainless steel, the new FriFri griddle is said to be suitable for front of house, theatre-style cooking. It is available as either a 400mm or 800mm wide unit.
