Refrigeration provider Porkka claims to have made a “breakthrough” in heated food storage with a new product that keeps cooked food hot for longer.
The company’s patented DHMC hot food storage and serving range is the result of two years’ R&D into cabinet moisture and heat circulation.
Porkka insists the system will keep cooked food hot “for hours” without any change in texture, flavour, appearance or nutritional value. It claims that weight loss is “negligible”, at around 1% every three hours.
Porkka says the system also reduces energy consumption with typical power consumption of just 0.18kWh when operating temperature has been reached, compared to 1.5kWh for a conventional cabinet.
The DHMC — which stands for ‘digital heat and moisture control’ —precisely controls humidity and temperature to prevent food from drying out.
As a result, Porkka says caterers are able to pre-prepare larger portions of food with no wastage and full compliance with EU food hygiene regulations.
The 1660mm wide DHMC cabinets are able to hold up to 28 x GN 1x1x65mm containers, around twice the load of most conventional cabinets, it claims.
