Multifunctional cooking equipment manufacturer, Frima, has organised a special offer for those attending the LACA Conference (Lead Association for CAtering in education).
Anyone taking a free trial of a Frima 112T can claim the cost of £100-worth of electricity, whether or not they decide to keep the unit.
The Frima 112T is the new, compact VarioCooking Center, with the manufacturer claiming that its multifunctionality and speed of cooking make it useful in school kitchens where space is limited and, as a result of UIFSM, production requirements have increased.
It can be used to boil, pan fry, stir fry and make casseroles, custards and sauces. Measuring 962mm wide by 800mm deep and 400mm high, it has two 14 litre pans, said to give the capacity to cook high volumes of food. It’s claimed to be up to four times as fast and use up to 40% less energy than conventional cooking appliances.
There is no cost for the trial – Frima will arrange installation and give training. At the end of the four week trial period, the company will arrange for the unit to be taken away and the school can claim its £100 voucher.
“We decided we wanted to do something special to highlight the energy-saving features of the VarioCooking Center,” said Graham Kille, Frima UK’s MD. “Obviously we hope that schools taking advantage of the trial will want to keep the unit – but there’s no obligation, and they can claim £100-worth of electricity either way.”
