Specialist catering equipment supplier, rexmartins Limited, has won approval to supply induction fryers to selected Hollywood Bowl Group centres.
The supplier is working with distributor, Advance Group of Dunstable, to provide its products.
The contract was secured following a 3-month trial at a Hollywood Bowl site which reportedly demonstrated the performance and energy benefits of the induction fryers compared with traditional gas and electric models.
Hollywood Bowl’s food and drink operational support manager Michelle Sims was keen to evaluate the energy-savings which could be achieved with rexmartins’ induction fryers as this complements the group’s culture of promoting sustainability.
She said: “During the trials, we found the rexmartins induction fryers delivered excellent quality fried food within the tight timeframes needed to keep pace with peak demand. Compared with our existing fryers, they cooked faster, gave excellent crispy results and were easier to clean.
“Most importantly, the fryers consumed 50% less energy than our existing models and generated less heat into the kitchen, making for a more comfortable working environment. We also found that oil life was doubled.”
rexmartins offers four induction fryer models: single and twin tank versions in either countertop or floor-standing designs.
Induction generators create heat directly across the base of the fryer tank. This, combined with temperature control, should deliver energy savings and extend the working life of the oil. As there are no heating elements in the oil, the induction fryers are designed to be easy to clean.
