Valentine Equipment will be launching its first completely new fryer in the UK for several years at Hotelympia 2018.
The Alpina 300 features electronic temperature regulation for optimum frying conditions to match the food and quantity being fried.
The cooking temperature is designed for precision of +/1°, which should be useful for lower temperature cooking. Said to be user-friendly, the Alpina features a repeat time function.
The fryer has almost the same capacity of production as the Valentine EVO 400 model, and is available in two variants: the 11kW Eco version and the 15kW Turbo version.
The series can be connected to an integrated energy optimisation system (Sicotronic), and initially will only be connected with a wi-fi mode for maintenance. However, the goal is to have a version 2.0 with a totally connected fryer.
Steve Elliot, sales director for Valentine Equipment and Cuisinequip said: “We are delighted that Valentine Fabrique has developed and launched the Alpina fryer for several reasons. The fryer has a 12.5l capacity tank and includes wi-fi to support cleaning and maintenance, and features a connection for integrated energy optimisation to a DIN Standard 18875 Sicotronic terminal to cut power peaks and save money on energy costs.
“Like other Valentine fryers, the Alpina has a small cold zone under the heating element meaning it takes less oil to fill up the fryer. The other pleasing factor about this launch in 2018 is that it is in the same year as Valentine Equipment’s 60th anniversary of being in business in the UK and the Alpina’s name and Swiss heritage have clearly helped to inspire our special stand at Hotelympia.”
The Alpina will be on display on stand 1510 at Hotelympia on 5-8 March at London’s ExCel.
