Lincat has launched a collection of no fewer than 12 oven ranges as part of its new Opus 800 series of prime cooking equipment.

Constructed on what are designed to be strong steel chassis, with heavy duty components, Opus 800 oven ranges are available in many options including: gas, electric or dual fuel; burners, plates or solid tops; side opening or drop down doors.

Each new oven range is said to deliver enhanced performance, output, energy efficiency and serviceability.

And, for the first time, Lincat has introduced an induction top range to the series. This hob top has 5kW induction zones, providing 270mm diameter induction cooking areas.

Automatic pan detection function cuts power when no pan is present, said to prevent harm to users while saving energy, and 6mm thick glass ceramic surface should withstand hard knocks and be easy to clean.

Opus 800 hob tops are available in gas or electric, and can be supplied as standalone boiling tops.

With single heavy-duty cast iron pan supports, the gas models are equipped with 7.5kW open burners with dual concentric rings, to provide focused heat distribution from a low simmer to a high heat.

Electric models feature pressed and sealed hob tops to facilitate cleaning, and heavy-duty, square or round cast iron 2.6kW hotplates to deliver fast responsive heat.

The new ranges are equipped with ovens ranging from 6kW to 9.5kW, with the capacity to hold up to 6 x GN1/1.

All are fan assisted, designed to give uniform heat and consistent cooking results, and each has a removable oven base for easy cleaning.

Double insulated doors, side and back panels also allow for safe operation, efficiency and economy.

Although deeper (at 800mm) than the Opus 700 range it replaces, minimal extra space should be required for Opus 800 equipment, as it sits flush to the wall with a recess for connection to gas and electricity supply.

Each piece of equipment in the new Opus 800 range is covered by a 2-year on-site parts and labour warranty.
