Returning to the UK’s largest foodservice and hospitality event, Hoshizaki UK will be unveiling a range of new undercounter refrigeration at The Professional Kitchen Show within Hotelympia 2018.
The four day event, taking place from 5-8 March at ExCeL London, will see Hoshizaki demonstrate the latest in ice making technology and dispense equipment on stand 1630, including the latest in HC (hydrocarbon) ice makers, while the stand also features a dedicated cocktail bar, manned by professional mixologist Myles Cunliffe, from Brighton-based Mixology Group.
Having trained across the world, he has the knowledge and experience to create an outstanding cocktail menu. Using Hoshizaki ice, Cunliffe will be running hourly masterclass sessions to demonstrate the importance of quality ice when it comes to producing a cocktail menu.
The show will also see the new Hoshizaki Snowflake Gen II Drawer units, which come in different sizes and configurations to meet operator demand.
Constructed from stainless steel, the refrigerated counters with drawers come at a standard height of 830mm, depth of 700mm and are available in lengths from 1,314mm (with four drawers) to 2,246mm (with eleven drawers). The Gastronorm compatible drawer design should provide easy access and versatile storage, suitable for a busy commercial kitchen setup. Said to be simple to use, digital displays allow the operator to set the temperature from -2°C – +8°C, and activate the units’ manual defrost cycle.
Capable of operating in ambient temperatures of up to +40°C, the range features up to 60mm thick insulation and uses the latest CFC and HCFC-free refrigerant. The heavy duty, single piece moulded surface provides additional workspace.
With the regulation around the use of F-Gas coming into force in 2020, the stand will also showcase some of the latest ice making technology. A portfolio of HC ice makers use the sustainable refrigerant, minimising their impact on the environment, while also achieving what is claimed to be good energy efficiency over the life of the appliance.
