Welbilt brand Garland has incorporated sister firm Inducs’ induction technology in its new range of Instinct table-top cooking equipment.
Five models are available in various sizes, consisting of single and double hob modules, a wok and two griddles.
The new series boasts what is said to be the first comprehensive control and monitoring system for induction thanks to RTCSmp (Real-Time Temperature Control System multi-point) technology. This is claimed to provide fast heat up times, safe cooking and accurate temperatures by utilising the electronics within the modules to monitor the temperature of the induction coils and energy supply.
In addition, the temperature can be controlled down to 1°C so that any deviations should be corrected without delay. The patented technology should also protect against ‘empty heating’ which detects if an empty pan has been placed onto the surface and left there.
The Instinct series features a new ‘Tip and Turn’ control system. These controls respond to light pressure on the control knob which activates the appliance, whilst the ‘turn’ function sets the desired temperature level.
The temperature can be held between 25°C to 100°C for whilst consistent power transfer over the entire cooking period should help achieve evenly cooked food every time.
The series is designed to generate no excess heat, reducing energy consumption and improving the working environment, while the fan fitted within the models is said to be virtually silent whilst still achieving good cooling capacity.
Cool surface Ceran cook tops in the hob and wok variations should ensure any spillages won’t burn or stick. And when food is placed directly onto the griddle units, the specially developed protection material is claimed to prevent the main plate becoming affected by continuous use. The surface protection is also said to allow for easier cleaning in between and at the end of service periods.
All models are available as single-phase variants.
