Catering Insight took a look back at the achievements of the UK catering equipment industry over the last 12 months with the Dealer’s Choice initiative.
We put a call out to senior distributor executives to find out what their favourite lockdown launches would be and nearly 300 were invited to demonstrate their ‘Dealer’s Choice’ for products in 11 categories.
In the accessories category, 44% of dealers plumped for Falcon’s Fryer Angel.
This is a unique new system that monitors deep fat fryers to prevent flare ups and fires, making a contribution to kitchen safety. The Fryer Angel is an option integrated into a variety of the company’s fryers and is available on both gas and electric single pan models.
Fryers are one of the most common causes of kitchen fires in commercial kitchens, as emphasised by the fact that in 2019 the London Fire Brigade attended 70 fires started by deep fat fryers. A key catalyst for the fires is the oil level getting too low.
The Fryer Angel works by constantly monitoring the fryer’s oil level and, if it starts getting low, it sounds an alert. If the level goes below the sensor’s minimum then the system switches off power to the fryer. The only way to power the unit back up is to top up the oil.
The system incorporates the latest sensing technology. By preventing fires and flare ups it will protect staff, customers and facilities, giving operators peace of mind and security.
The Fryer Angel was rigorously tested in Falcon’s NPD laboratory and development kitchen, and has been approved by the BSI as well as being independently validated by KIWA, the leading testing, inspection and certification body.
