Welbilt UK will be transforming its HRC stand (P411) into a compact ‘grab and go’ outlet in order to help demonstrate how exhibition visitors can achieve a suitable set-up with three of Welbilt’s world-renowned brands; Merrychef, Convotherm and Crem, at even the smallest of sites.
For example, the latest Merrychef high speed oven which will be featuring on stand – the Merrychef eikon e1s – should allow independent operators to expand their hot food menus and adapt to changing customer and business needs, along with evolving menus and hot food trends.
Filling the gap in the market for an entry-level high-speed oven, the eikon e1s features a combination of three heat technologies: convection, tuned impingement and microwave, which are designed to allow cooking times to be up to 10x faster than conventional ovens.
As well as a necessity for speedy catering units, most grab-and-go set-ups will also heavily rely cooking on units that allow a caterer to cook various types of food within one unit, hence why Welbilt will be showcasing its next generation of Convotherm Mini combi ovens.
Contained within a small footprint of 51.5cm, the Convotherm Mini has low energy consumption and a functional design alongside its ability to roast, steam, bake and regenerate; as well as grill and even cook products that would normally require frying.
The third unit that Welbilt will be demonstrating as part of their grab-and-go concept is the Crem Unity 1+.
Uniting filter and espresso brewing capabilities with a fresh milk foaming system, this fully-automatic coffee machine can offer barista-quality coffees.
Visitors to London’s ExCeL on 3-5 March will also be able to sample hot food, courtesy of the Welbilt culinary team, who will be highlighting how to cook a range of grab-and-go items in both Convotherm combi ovens and Merrychef high speed ovens. All this can be washed down with coffees that have been made via Crem’s new espresso machine, the EX3, seen for the first time in the UK.
Featuring tested, customisable technologies, the Crem EX3 can also have its colour, finish and lighting customised so that it matches the interior of an operator’s venue and brand.
Also committed to keeping its exhibition stand as green as possible, Welbilt UK will be serving food and drink samples in biodegradable plates and cups.
