Induction Hobs Replace Gas At Eight Bells Inn

Presitigious Cotswold's pub, the Eight Bells Inn located at Chipping Campden, had a problem.  The kitchen's gas equipment had been condemned and was non compliant because the ventilation system was old and inadequate.

Gas engineers recommended the complete replacement of the ventilation system just to remain compliant with regulations and this was going to be expensive.

Neil Hargreaves, owner of The Eight Bells, thought there must be an alternative.  Following investigations he found that induction cooking may the answer but standard induction cookers would not be suitable for his kitchen.

Further investigations brought Neil to Target Catering Equipment, manufacturers of bespoke kitchen equipment and specialists in heavy duty induction cooking equipment.  Following a factory visit and induction cooking trials in Target's demo kitchen, the Eight Bells sceptical chefs found that Target's induction hobs were indeed faster than gas and more controllable.  Working together with Target's design engineers a bespoke induction range cooker that would slot exactly into the existing cookline was approved by Neil.

All requirements for the new install were maticulously mapped out by Neil and including all new electrical service requirements, a new 3 phase power supply and the bespoke induction range cooker the complete refurb still proved to be cheaper than the original quote for a new ventilation system.

The Target induction unit was manufactured with precision to fit through the old medieval doorways in the ancient pub and it was easily manouvred into position over cobbled walkways on its height adjustable castors.

With all preparatory work carried out before installation, the kitchen did not shut, and Target's installation team completed the install of the new induction stove, salamander grill and deep fat fryer before lunchtime service.

Commercial Range Cooker Completes Gilpin Hotel Kitchen Refurb

Gordon Cartwright, executive chef director at the lake district Gilpin Hotel & Lake House, commissioned a Target commercial range cooker with induction cooktop and plancha grill for his new all electric kitchen.

Visionary Dining founder Cartwright pushed all the boundaries and defied convention with his new kitchen design.  The creative kitchen has no defined pass but multiple food preparation and assembley areas, each with its own suspended heat lamp, hot holding station.

Portable induction hobs, sous vide water baths and other table top catering equipment is spread around the kitchen with the Target commercial induction range stove at the centre of the sections all ochestrated by Cartwright.

The induction range cooker requires no overhead ventilation in its central island position, with general kitchen ventilation provided by the original wall mounted extract system, the only thing remaining unchanged from the original old kitchen and saving a fortune in refurbishment costs.

Energy efficiency is a key driver for Cartwright and along with the induction stove, Target's rise and fall salamander grill with automatic plate detection bar, energy consumption is greatly reduced allowing an increase in bottom line profitablility.

Induction Cooking Range Specified For Italian Cafe Kitchen Design

A Target induction cooking range completes classic Italian Cafe's cookline for leading London equipment distributor and kitchen designer, Chiller Box Ltd.

Chiller Box re-designed the kitchen at Cafe Vergnano, located in London's South Bank centre development, and, whilst retaining certain elements to keep costs down, also supplied new equipment including a bespoke induction cooking range.

The deck pizza oven, Valentine fryers and pasta boiler line up was completed with a Target bespoke induction range which incorporates an induction cooktop and plancha with convection oven and grill under.  The bespoke induction cooking range is proving popular as a replacement to the traditional 6 burner gas range and equivalent radiant plate electric range.

Chiller Box designers now specify induction as part of their energy efficient kitchen design package and working together with manufacturer's Target Catering Equipment they can deliver bespoke induction cooking solutions to suit their clients' needs.

Chefs love the instant heat and control that induction cooking gives and when used alongside the plancha grill the ideal versatile cooking station is created.  With integrated work surfaces and upstands to sides and rear of the induction range, cleaning is made easy as spillages are contained on the worktop, cooking directly on the commercial plancha means less pots and pans and thus reduces washing up.

Induction cooking is the cool alternative - the future of cooking in the catering kitchen!

Commercial Plancha Goes Front Of House At Tapas Restaurant Print E-mail

Commercial Plancha Goes Front Of House At Tapas Restaurant

Tapas bar operators, Imogen and Kieran, owners of Bravas Bristol, chose a highly polished, high chrome steel Target commercial plancha to sit front of house at their new venture, Bakers & Co located on Gloucester Road, Bristol.

The plancha is to be the main focal point, sitting alongside a multi deck Tom Chandley bakery oven.  Ideal for fast, front of house cooking the countertop plancha has totally separate plancha plates ensuring no cross contamination of product during peak time cooking.

Having previous experience cooking on a plancha, chef Imogen chose Target's double plancha because of its quality and separate plate design.  The separate plancha plate design, as well as ensuring no cross contamination of flavours, also ensures energy efficiency, as when only one plate is in use, little heat is lost to the second plancha plate.  This lack of heat creep from one plate to the other is also important when different working temperatures are required.

The Target commercial double plancha is a unique design with two seperate plates rather than a single plate with a machined divider in the middle of the plate, as can be found in other double plancha products.  Grease gullies around each plate maintain this total separation and drain into a large capacity drainage drawer enabling easy cleaning all around.

Commercial Induction Cooking Range Completes All Electric Cookline

When On The Waterfront Pub, located on Exeter's historic quay, was preparing for yet another busy year, a commercial induction cooking range was commissioned in order to help keep up with demand at this unique restaurant and waterside pub.

A double plancha, to enable ultra fast grilling and searing of meat and fish dishes, was paired with an electric induction cooktop completing the all electric cookline in this busy kitchen.  With the two separate cooking zones allowing the plancha plates to be used individually or together as demand dictates, also cutting down on the considerable amount of pot and pan washing up in the kitchen.

Commercial Range Cooker Solves Case For Ince Law Chefs

The Target commercial range cooker, incorporating inbuilt cooking equipment along with induction cooktops, offers chefs the ultimate choice to suit every cooking style uniquely designed for individual requirements.

The latest Target induction range cooker was designed and installed for International Law Firm, Ince & Co in a top floor, private dining facility close to Tower Bridge and overlooking the St Catherine's Dock Marina.

With ever increasing energy costs, businesses looking to reduce overheads are replacing old, costly to run cooking equipment with new energy efficient equipment that can save them in operating and running costs.  Not only does induction cooking reduce costs, with energy efficiencies of some 90% compared to traditional gas and electric range cookers, it also improves the working environment and reduces health and safety hazards in the catering kitchen.

Chefs love induction as it's fast and controllable, just like gas but without the generation of excess heat which can waste up to 70% of the heat generated.  Induction cooking keeps kitchens much cooler thus reducing the need for excessive ventilation systems.

The commercial range cooker, designed and manufactured for Ince & Co, incorporated a high spec FriFri fryer with an easy to use manual oil filtration system which allows the cooking oil to be filtered and reused.  Providing maximum output, the fryer's advanced frying technology provides lower oil absorption and produces consistently crisp results for healthier food.

The Target commercial range cooker is easy to keep clean with seamless cooking surfaces and easy wipe clean induction cooktop, thus time is saved, and the drudgery of cleaning reduced.

Marine Galley Equipment Completes Tall Ship Renovation

Tall ship Kaskelot recently left Gloucester Docks following a complete refit and renovation.  Together with new marine galley equipment, new main propulsion engine and power generators, new mechanical and electrical control and navigation systems, and newly painted hull, she looks magnificent and has been transformed to a new gleaming vessel.

Hidden in the aft accommodation is a new all stainless steel marine galley.  Designed, manufactured and installed by Target Catering Equipment of Gloucester, the marine galley includes a cooking suite which incorporates the very latest Target induction cooking technology and replaces old, inefficient LPG gas cookers.

 

 

The new induction hob cooker produces little or no waste heat which makes the galley a much cooler and safer place to work in.  The reduced running costs and reduced fuel consumption are also very important on a vessel of this type.

The galley has everything you would expect to find in a commercial kitchen and has been squeezed into a small space which had no level surfaces.  Bespoke fabrication and adjustable height equipment had to be manufactured to suit a deck varying in height forward, aft and athwart ships.

Target worked with yacht designers and project managers to ensure a galley was produced on time and on budget ready for the ship to sail.  Her new owners Sportcel, are a sports and events marketing company and tall ship, Kaskelot will now enjoy a new role in corporate hospitality and marketing around the world.

The ship is a great working exhibit of fine traditional craftsmanship undertaken by ship builders Tommi Nielsen and Co, based in Gloucester Docks.  The refit also used the skills and products of many other local manufacturing businesses.

Induction Cooking Transforms Restaurant Kitchen In Gas Street

An induction cooking system now takes pride of place in a restaurant kitchen after Mark Rafferty, Chef Patron at The Pickled Piglet, located in Gas Street, Birmingham kicked out his old electric radiant plate range cooker and replaced it with a bespoke induction range cooker.

With the old radiant plate range consuming vast amounts of electricity and producing lots of heat which made the kitchen intolerably hot to work in, Mark decided that the best way to cure the problem was with an energy efficient induction cooking system.
