Grande Cuisine is introducing the discreet Adventys Induc Stone induction hob to the UK market.
The unit will heat induction-friendly holding equipment during service, while being hidden from view beneath the work surface.
The appliance can be placed beneath granite, marble, natural or mixed stone, with no cutting required, designed to turn an attractive work surface into a functional hot buffet counter. The unit can be used to keep holding equipment such as chafing dishes warm, which could eliminate the need for traditional fuel tins.
Like all induction units, the Induc Stone operates only when in contact with a suitable vessel, designed to make it economical to use, with none of the uncomfortable heat that can be generated with other methods. Food is kept at a constant temperature for as long as required.
The Adventys induction technology is said to ensure that the work surface does not exceed 55°C and therefore should eliminate any danger of customers burning themselves when using the buffet counter.
The unit comes with a control panel that can be set into the work surface or placed within a frame. The panel can be locked, and incorporates a timer that operates between one and 99 minutes.
