Following last year’s launch of its inaugural induction hob, Lincat has added a pair of heavy duty induction hobs to its Opus 700 range.
Designed to be suited with Opus 700 equipment, the new models feature energy-efficient induction technology and promise a highly responsive and controllable cooking method.
Lincat claims its induction hobs typically offer 90% efficiency as compared with a solid electric hotplate at 55% and a gas hob at 50%.
It says that because heat is generated in the pan, instead of the hob surface, very little energy is wasted into the kitchen’s atmosphere, which makes the cooking process more efficient and reduces demand on air conditioning systems.
The new OE7013 is equipped with two high power 3.5kW cooking zones, while the OE7014 has four.
Nick McDonald, marketing director of Lincat, said: “Our new induction hobs are robust and powerful, whilst also offering precise control. This makes them perfect for melting chocolate, simmering stocks or rapidly boiling large pans of pasta. They will also help businesses to reduce energy consumption, cut costs and increase safety in the kitchen.”
