Synergy Grill Technology has launched a new electric grill, the eGrill.
Featuring what is described as ‘never-seen-before technology’, the eGrill range is built around a patented system of elements which delivers focused and high heat to enable faster cooking times and electricity savings up to 25%.
Thanks to a patented atomisation process, that is similar to that found in Synergy gas grills, the natural food oils are used as a secondary heat source, thus turning fat into free fuel. This should deliver an environmentally responsible grill which saves 12 tons of CO2 residue per year, in comparison to a standard electric grill.
As the eGrill range also atomises fat, there is no fat tray for chefs to clean and no risk of irresponsible disposal of fatty waste. With no fat tray, the Synergy eGrill should be quick and easy to clean, and is said to reduce the number of duct and extraction baffle cleans required by a factor of seven, resulting in a cleaner, less polluted working environment for kitchen staff.
Justin Cadbury, Chairman of Synergy Grill Technology, believes that the eGrill has the potential to change the electric grill market even more fundamentally than the original Synergy Grill transformed the gas grill sector: “This Synergy eGrill is an industry-changing new product for those who prefer electricity to gas, but who also want lower energy costs and better food quality.
“It has taken us a long time to launch the new electric grill because, quite simply, in order to be called a ‘Synergy Grill’ it has to meet certain criteria including: less energy usage, carbon footprint reduction and, of course, money savings. Inspired by 10 years of specialised knowledge in grill technology, our brand new patented eGrill technology ticks all these boxes, providing a superior electric solution to commercial kitchens worldwide and further widens our portfolio to bring operators the greatest choice in grills.”
He concluded: “As we increasingly move into a more environmentally friendly and sustainability conscious era, electric grills are becoming more frequently requested, especially from countries who are looking to switch to 100% electric in the coming years, such as those in Scandinavia and Benelux. We are delighted and proud of our achievement to develop a product that complements our existing product base so perfectly with our existing gas-powered range.”
Claimed to deliver more succulent food with a higher weight yield, food cooked on a Synergy eGrill is self-basted in its own natural vapour, resulting in no over-charring or the ‘black smoke’ taste synonymous with conventional grills. Instead, food cooked on a Synergy eGrill is gently smoked for a tender food product with an intense BBQ flavour and defined bar marks, without the need for gas or charcoal.
Synergy eGrills are available in 600 and 900D models, as well as a Synergy Outdoor Cook Station.
