Lincat-owned fryer brand FriFri has introduced an electric griddle to its portfolio.
Available as either a 400mm or 800mm wide unit, the griddle features a high specification, flat bar element. This is designed to transfer heat efficiently to the griddle plate, and its low power density should enable longevity.
The new griddle is equipped with thermostatic control up to 300°C for consistent results and economical operation.
The 15mm thick chromed griddle plate is said to be easy to clean and provide reduced heat radiation for a more comfortable working environment and reduced energy costs. A sunken well and plug allow for shallow frying and facilitate cleaning, whilst a splash back is provided to prevent oil splashing onto neighbouring surfaces.
Constructed from 307 grade stainless steel, the new FriFri griddle is said to be suitable for front of house, theatre-style cooking.
It can be used on the counter top, or a stand with a cupboard is available as an option. When sold in the UK, it is supplied with a 2-year parts and labour warranty.
Helen Applewhite, marketing manager of FriFri, said: “FriFri fryers are known throughout the word for their extremely high specification. We have applied the same determination to achieve the very best in the design and manufacture of the new FriFri griddle. We are certain that FriFri fans across the globe will not be disappointed.”
The FriFri range comprises free-standing, built-in and counter-top fryers, all manufactured in a number of power and voltage variants. The range also includes chip scuttles, pasta cookers and gas fryers.
FriFri is manufactured at Lincat’s factory in Lincoln, in the UK, where the majority of FriFri products and components are also held in stock and carry a 2year parts warranty.
