Grande Cuisine is bringing the Mareno Star 110 series central cooking island to the UK market, designed to make it simple to work on two fronts where space is limited.
Based on the original Mareno range, the Star 110 has been updated and aesthetically redesigned, while technical improvements are said to have increased its power output by 40%, for a stylish, ergonomic and efficient workspace.
The 110cm-wide central block is designed to optimise work organisation with centrally positioned cooking zones, pass-through ovens and bases so that several chefs can work together in harmony. The Star 110 can offer made-to-measure solutions, with appliances aligned either side by side, or back- to-back, to suit any operation.
The controls, with their star-shaped design, are the inspiration for the Star name. An updated design should make them more ergonomic, stylish, sturdy and durable.
A raised mark, highlighted in blue, allows the user to quickly determine which setting the knob is adjusted to with a touch of the hand. The new handles blend with the modern pressed doors and enhanced grip.
Gas ranges in the Star 110 range are equipped with high-yield (over 60%) open burners, claimed to provide rapid power and cooking and to deliver fuel savings of between 20% and 30% a year when compared to more traditional style burners.
Press-moulded frying vats come with a cold zone for frying, while the static oven has a cast iron base and should provide precise, uniform cooking. In addition, the pasta cooker features a built-in safety system that prevents it from operating without water in the tank.
Among other items within the portfolio are traditional style solid gas or electric tops, gas wok ranges, single zone and multiple zone induction tops, lava stones and electric grills.
The Mareno Star 110 offers over 70 different modules, giving multiple configuration and layout options that can be tailored to each client’s requirement.
