FEM is launching a new modular holding bin in the UK, designed to hold hot food in prime condition over extended periods.
Manufactured by Prince Castle in the USA, the bins aim to provide operators maximum flexibility in terms of both menu choice and configuration.
Prince Castle is the manufacturer of choice for McDonald’s, Burger King and KFC across the globe.
The new bins can be used individually, stacked or expanded horizontally and are controlled by a master base, which can handle as many as 25 units.
The time and temperature setting in each bin can be controlled individually, so that different menu items can be stored in different bins, ensuring the best possible food quality.
Each bin measures 10.28cm wide by 13.76cm deep and come with a choice of two heights, 4.11cm and 2.5cm.
The system also minimises food waste, as staff can see at a glance how much time is left and use ‘first in, first out’ stock rotation.
Mark Hogan, commercial director of FEM, said: “With the pressure on kitchen space in UK restaurants, the flexibility of configuration of these hot holding bins will be a huge bonus for quick service operators.”
List prices for the bins are from £2,040, including the main base with one holding module.
