Jestic has announced the availability of the Marshall ThermoGlo, which radiates uniform heat across every square inch of its heating surface.
The company claims the equipment contrasts well with most heating systems used at the ‘Pass’, which rely on bulbs, lamps or tubes that glow hot in a concentrated area, reducing element life and creating cold spots.
The technology used in ThermoGlo heats only the food, not the surrounding air or metal surfaces. Jestic claims tests also show it can reduce energy consumption at the Pass by as much as 50%.
The ThermoGlo is designed with a flat, unbreakable radiating metal face encased in stainless steel and delivers a wide range of programmable temperature capabilities to fulfil exact warming and holding criteria.
Jestic’s product director, Michael Eyre, says the benefit for chefs is that food stays ‘presentation’ ready far longer because exact temperatures can be reached faster and maintained longer.
He said: “Chefs rightly pride themselves on the quality of the food leaving their kitchen, but their good work is often undone by being left lying on the ‘Pass’ getting cold — or worse — forming a ‘skin’, simply because the heating is uneven. ThermoGl changes all that by generating a uniform heat across the entire surface of the unit.”
The ThermoGlo surface has no reflectors, wire guard or fragile exposed bulbs and wipes clean with a moist cloth. It is available in six different lengths from 18 inches to six feet.
