Lincat has introduced a new, high-capacity electric pasta boiler to its heavy duty Opus 800 range of prime cooking equipment. Able to be used too as a steamer or bain marie, the new pasta boiler is said to be flexible and space-saving.
Designed to be connected directly to both water and waste, the new pasta boiler has two water fill settings: fast fill or trickle fill to maintain the water level while cooking. A starch removal system should keep the water fresh, and the boiler is equipped with a direct overflow connection and boil dry protection.
Full, half and quarter sized pasta baskets can be ordered, as well as 1/1, 1/2 and 1/3 GN containers and 1/1 and 1/2 perforated GN containers. The new Opus 800 pasta boiler has power rating of 6kW, tank capacity of 25litres and overall dimensions of H 1,020mm x W 400mm x D 800mm.
Helen Applewhite, marketing manager of Lincat, said: “Pasta remains of course a huge favourite and our new electric Opus 800 pasta boiler makes light work of producing large quantities of perfect pasta. But it can do much more too, doubling up as a high capacity steamer or bain marie, saving both space and the money required to invest in separate, specialist, equipment.”
