French manufacturer Charvet has expanded its foray into the modular sector by launching a new salamander.
Built to heavy-duty specifications, the salamander is said to be versatile, powerful and robust. “Charvet only manufactures prime cooking equipment and is a brand respected for great design, robust quality and superb value for money,” said Wayne Cuomo, MD of Charvet Premier Ranges.
“Our new salamander has been thoroughly tried and tested throughout France and across Europe by top chefs and restaurant chains alike and has proved a reliable and highly cost-effective addition to the kitchen.
“It offers the catering equipment distributor a beefier, heavier-duty contact grill that can be easily bench or wall mounted, or fitted at the end of a cooking suite.”
Featuring infrared technology that is designed to minimise smoke and odours, the salamander is suitable for smaller cafes and front of house cooking operators, as well as Michelin-starred restaurants. It boasts 3kW power and can achieve 400°C in 9 seconds or 570°C after 15 minutes of use.
Two independent cooking areas allow half the unit to be switched off during low demand. A standard on/off control allows for use at full-blast during peak service and the Plate Detection System automatically turns the elements on when a dish is placed under the grill.
Open on three sides, it accepts dishes of any size and measures 600 x 590 x 590mm, with a surface cooking area of 540 x 375mm. It weighs 44kg.
