MCS Technical Products annouced today it is about to launch a CookTek single phase induction plancha to enhance its range.
Catering Insight readers have the first sight of the new CookTek single phase induction plancha which has been developed to complement the larger three phase unit.
According to MCS managing director Steve Snow: “The larger CookTek induction plancha (3 ft wide) launched earlier this year has proved to be extremely popular.
“Chefs have been impressed with its performance which goes from ambient to 230°C in just 7 minutes and when fully laden with frozen product recovers its heat in less than 60 seconds. To do the same work, a traditional griddle would need to be half the size again.
“The launch of the single phase unit is a natural progression, adding another high quality innovative product to the CookTek range.”
The smaller version is available as a counter top unit or a drop in unit. The power rating is single phase 7kW, the plate size is 310mm x 585mm and it is available in either polished steel or chrome plated.
“The planchas are extremely versatile – both units can also be used a solid tops,” says Snow. "The new plancha will be vailable in the first quarter of next year and like other CookTek products in the range carries a five year parts and labour warranty."
