Lincat has added three space-saving convection ovens to its Lynx 400 range of plug and play electric equipment, in response to the growing number of establishments battling with limited counter space.
An evolution of Lincat’s LCO ovens, the new models have the ability and capacity to hold gastronorms either directly in the shelf runners or placed on supplied shelves.
The slim LCOS accommodates 2 x 1/2GN, the tall LCOT accommodates 2 x 2/3GN, and the large LCOXL accommodates 4 x 1/1GN. All three are claimed to offer more shelf space and higher gastronorm capacity than industry competitors at a similar price point and footprint.
All achieve their compact footprints by having their control panels located underneath the oven doors.
With a temperature range of 50°C to 250°C, these 2.5kW fan-assisted ovens are designed to deliver consistent, even results. No installation is required, as they operate from a 13A plug, and both the dial controls and 55-minute timer are said to be easy to use.
The LCOS and LCOT ovens are equipped with two removable shelves and four shelf positions, whilst the LCOXL has three removable shelves with four shelf positions. All ovens feature side-opening doors, with double-glazed viewing panels and internal lights, to support energy-efficient operation.
These new ovens are also designed to be easy to maintain, since the inner door glass, light bulb and door seal can all be replaced by the user – which could avoid costly service calls for routine maintenance.
As with all Lincat equipment, the new Lynx 400 ovens are supplied with a 2-year on-site parts and labour warranty. If a piece of equipment does need repairing, it should be able to be done quickly and easily by service engineers, on site.
Helen Applewhite, marketing manager at Lincat, commented: “Our compact LCO convection oven is one of our best-sellers, which is why we decided to develop three further space-saving ovens to add to the range – with a brand-new Lynx 400 logo. They are great choice, where space is limited, for producing a wide range of high-quality foods such as roasted meats, vegetables, potatoes and breads.
“The new ovens are manufactured here in the UK, so customers can be assured they are purchasing a quality piece of kit, which has been produced to a high standard, with easy access to spare parts and excellent aftersales support.”
