Cambridge-based company, Synergy Grill Technology, has introduced a range of Outdoor Cook Stations to its commercial grill portfolio which could allow operators to tap into the outdoor catering scene in time for the summer surge.
Unlike traditional outdoor units which lose heat rapidly, thus requiring regular restoration of coals, the Synergy Grill Outdoor Unit should be able to maintain a powerful, consistent heat thanks to a combination of fuel injection air gas technology and natural ceramics.
Thermal shock resistant bars should also allow chefs to cook a higher volume of food while the temperature remains consistent.
Like Synergy’s indoor counterparts, the Synergy Outdoor Grill Unit is said to use on average 59% less gas compared to commercial gas grills of similar sizes, thus less gas bottles are required during outdoor food services.
A gas distribution valve within the units switches from one bottle to the other without having to change gas pipes, plus the appliance can hold two 13kg propane gas bottles.
Justin Cadbury, chairman of Synergy Grill Technology said: “We are pleased to launch our Outdoor Synergy Cook Stations following the tremendous success of our indoor grills: a unit which turns outdoor areas into excellent revenue earners.
“When using an outdoor grill, many catering professionals are unable to decide whether gas is the most convenient, if charcoal produces a better flavour or if electric is the most reliable. The Synergy Grill can offer the benefits of all three, along with stress-free, high-quality cooking without compromising on the food quality served.
He continued: “Outdoor cooking is an easy and simple way to increase food revenue during the summer months, whether it’s a fine dining restaurant or casual pub dining.
“The cleanliness of the Synergy, as well as its environmental excellence, which has now been accredited by the Carbon Trust, opens new avenues for pub gardens etc.
“With the peaks and troughs experienced with outdoor food service, Synergy Grills allow the chef to focus on the cooking, rather than worrying about the temperature of the equipment. From succulent steaks, chargrilled chicken, juicy sausages, veggies and more, Synergy’s outdoor grill technology ensures perfect grilling results time after time.”
Complete with heat capturing ceramic technology, the mobile grill is available in wood cladding or stainless steel, and in SG630, SG900 and SG1300 sizes.
Featuring lockable castors to make it easy to manoeuvre, the Outdoor Cook Station can come with optional accessories such as a rotisserie, garnish rails and griddle plates.
