Samsung has introduced Zap Pad as a standard feature on all its medium and heavy duty commercial microwaves.
This button gives a 20 second boost to cooking time with each touch, without the user needing to turn dials or select a programme.
“Chefs love the Zap Pad, because it’s just such a simple way to get cooking or reheating,” said David Watts, manager of Samsung Professional Appliances. “They can even hit the Pad during cooking, if they think the dish needs some extra time.”
The firm’s medium and heavy duty commercial microwave ovens are available with two control panels – either touch pads, which are programmable, or twin dials, controlling time and power. Both versions offer the Zap Pad.
The heavy duty models are rated at 1,850W, the medium duty 1,500W, and both have the largest capacity in their class – the 2/3 gastronorm oven cavity being 35% bigger than conventional designs. This makes them suitable for larger plates or jugs and multi-portion cooking.
