Smeg Foodservice Solutions has a new partnership for CEDA members, with exclusive access to a range of its warewashing and oven appliances.
Cementing the Smeg/CEDA relationship with an exclusive range of foodservice equipment was a natural progression to the manufacturer joining the association as a platinum partner at the start of 2015 as Phil Coulstock, commercial channel director for Smeg (UK), explained: “We saw it as an important step to be able to talk to many of the UK’s leading foodservice equipment distributors in CEDA and decided to offer them a number of Smeg commercial appliances on an exclusive basis.
“CEDA members will find the warewashers and ovens we have selected for them to have excellent performance, energy and cost-saving features combined with Smeg’s flair for design innovation.
“They will also benefit from our excellent distribution and service support networks in the UK, making sure they have the equipment exactly when and where it’s needed and that operation is optimised from installation onwards.”
The exclusive access is to the new Greenline range of commercial glass and dishwashers which has energy saving features including a standby mode that is claimed to save up to 70% of energy over comparable competitor models when the washer is not in use.
There are eight models to choose from with under-counter units and hood-type versions that deliver up to 72 baskets (1,700 plates) per hour performance. They all feature double skin construction to promote energy saving and noise reduction.
Furthermore, Smeg has launched four oven models in the UK for CEDA members. The ovens are priced from £745 to £5,534 to suit a wide range of foodservice applications and budgets. CEDA members will also benefit from discounts of around 40% on the list prices and additional savings for larger orders.
Options include a reversible fan for claimed consistent cooking, double and triple glazed doors, grill and a humidification system to add additional moisture. All feature fast heat-up and temperature recovery systems designed for energy saving and stable cooking temperatures.
