The Mareno ICP910E flat-top grill is now available in the UK through Grande Cuisine.
Aimed at both direct and indirect cooking, the unit’s hotplate is made from stainless steel with a hardened chrome contact surface which should maintain the heat, reducing heat loss and saving energy.
The unit has radiused corners and a bevelled upper edge with cooking area dimensions of 830mm x 660mm x 18mm thick. The cooking area is made up of four independent 4kW cooking zones, each measuring 410mm x 320mm.
Surface temperature adjustment is from 50°C to 400°C and it is possible to set different temperatures on each of the four zones independently. The chef can shift pans so as to obtain the best cooking or cook food directly on the cooking surface as preferred. The ICP910E is equipped with a wide perimeter duct, a hole for draining and a liquid collection drawer.
The ICP910E features Mareno’s ICHEF technology, a fully touch-controlled range of commercial cooking equipment. ICHEF units have no mechanical buttons or knobs and are designed to be precise via the Control Cooking System which Mareno has specifically created to control the ICHEF’s multiple functions.
The touchscreen control panel should allow the chef to maintain control of each individual unit and save energy. The bright display panel is said to be clearly legible under all lighting conditions, so anyone working at one of the ICHEF units can monitor and adjust the settings on any appliance.
Throughout each cooking phase the display communicates the settings selected and the current temperature, meaning that the chef can monitor the precise temperature at any given moment.
The degree of precision offered by ICHEF units reportedly results in energy savings: compared to traditional systems ICHEF appliances are claimed to offer an 8% reduction in energy consumption but, when combined with the Control Cooking System and Mareno’s Power Guardian, energy cost reductions can be up to 50%.
