Target Catering has deployed its first front-of-house compact induction cooking station with built-in re-circulating ventilation at Magdalen College Oxford.
The energy-saving unit was designed by Target and hand built at its production factory in Gloucester.
Target boss David Pedrette said the fact that the system utilises induction technology and was manufactured in the UK ticked the college’s environmental boxes.
“With brain food hard for students to find at the right price and competition from the high street fast food and street food vendors, the college needed something special that was compact as well as mobile for use at functions and events.”
The college is now able to offer cooked-to-order options for students at a price that doesn’t send them running for McDonald’s.
“The unit also features affordable under-counter gastro norm refrigerated drawers to hold prepared proteins for immediate use by the chefs, with a spice rack overhead for individual spicing of freshly cooked wok stir-fries and pan-fried curries,” adds Pedrette.
Target boasts more than 20 years’ experience of stainless steel kitchen fabrication and supplies equipment from a wide range of manufacturers.
Recent years have seen the company strengthen its portfolio of energy efficient kit, augmented by the development of its own range of i-hob commercial induction hobs and induction range cookers.
