Grande Cuisine has introduced the Capic Celtic 800 solid top gas oven to its portfolio of products.
The supplier believes this offers a flexible cooking solution that can be used on its own where space is limited, or as part of a range in larger kitchens.
The solid, cast iron hotplate is in two parts with a bulls-eye central burner. The surface area (800mm x 600mm) can be used for boiling, simmering or for holding, so the Celtic 800 solid top could complement an open burner unit.
The firebrick surrounding the central burner is designed to maintain heat and reduce energy waste, while spurs on the underside of the solid top promise optimal heat retention. A removable tray under the plate is said to make it easy to keep clean.
The 8kW module also features a security pilot and thermocouple, has insulated stainless steel oven walls and comes with a stainless steel GN 2/1 griddle.
