Catering equipment supplier Bradshaw has struck a deal to import an innovative new piece of equipment that positions itself as an oil-free alternative to the deep fat fryer.
The machine, which comes out of Denmark, is now available in the UK after undergoing extensive trials in its home market, where it was developed by manufacturer Mom’s to satisfy a need for the production of low-fat products based on the fast food concept.
Mom’s has been operating in the market for some time, but the latest version of its machine follows a heavy investment in product development.
A single machine can cook eight kilos of French fries in an hour and uses patented technology to do the job without any cooking odours, oil or the need for extraction.
“The unit cooks by an intense light and achieves superb results in seconds,” explains Phil Bullivant, MD at Bradshaw. “The technology being used enables fat-free frying with the obvious health benefits. And the countertop unit runs off a 13-amp supply so it does not need extraction. It is ideal for environments that cannot allow the use of deep fat fryers, such as airports, forecourts and bars.”
By using heat from halogen lamps and circulating air, the Mom’s machine is suited for all dishes that are commonly associated with fast food, according to the manufacturer.
The unit can be placed almost anywhere and doesn’t take up any more space than a regular microwave oven.
