The Speech House Hotel Kitchen Gets Induction Solid Top

Based in a former 17th century hunting lodge, The Speech House Hotel, with its busy function suite and large garden marquee, was struggling to manage with the spiralling energy costs of LPG gas and an outdated kitchen and urgently needed an upgrade.

Energy specialist advisors were called in to survey the kitchen and suggest a way to reduce costs.  A change to more manageable and controllable electric catering equipment, including induction cooking technology was recommended and a visit to Target Catering Equipment's demonstration kitchen to trial cooking with induction and other energy efficient equipment was arranged.

On finalising the contract, Target's team of engineers set about removing all the redundant kitchen equipment and renovating the old Lincat hot cupboards which were also fitted with new hot pass gantries.  A new grill section gantry was manufactured and positioned over the existing fridge and table tops to create an island preparation area.

To replace the redundant LPG gas solid top and 6 burner gas range, Target Catering Equipment manufactured a bespoke Induction Solid Top Range Cooker incorporating an induction solid top with control power slide top.  The induction solid top replicates the features of a traditional gas solid top with programmable induction zones to enable graduated heat zones across the Ceran® glass top.

Providing extra oven space a versatile Blue Seal E31D4 oven and grill was incorporated into the Induction Soild Top Range Cooker.  The Blue Seal oven accepts standard gastro-norm containers and being programmable with simple digital controls, makes it ideal for the busy hotel kitchen.

The installation was completed ahead of schedule and Gill Hands, a director at The Speech House Hotel, is "over the moon" with the result.   The once sweltering kitchen has become a cool, calm and controlled cooking facility with energy efficient cooking technology producing perfect results using a fraction of the power previously consumed.

Customised Induction Range Cooker Solves Listed Buiding Kitchen Ventilation Restrictions

The time had come when Burford House Hotel needed to upgrade its kitchen in oder to comply with current gas safe regulations as well as insurance standards.  Listed buildings often offer the most challenging issues and unforseen circumstances when upgrading kitchens or embarking on renovations.

After visiting Target's demonstration kitchen, partners Ian and Stewart decided on induction cooking and a customised induction range cooker design to replace old equipment which they had inherited with the hotel when they took it over.

Having already used portable induction hobs, as a back up for the failing gas range, the choice to convert to induction cooking was already made and a customised commercial induction range cooker, with 8 cooking zones was designed incorporating a Blue Seal convection oven and grill and a mini combi from Convotherm.  All appliances had to run on 230 volt, single phase power supply.

Target upgraded the electrical distribution system and rewired the cookline ready for the new equipment after walls were made good and clad in Altro whiterock wall cladding.

The existing ventilation outlet was enlarged to accept new ducting and new fan as well as a new, stainless steel ventilation system which was manufactured by Target.

To improve service and increase the plating up area, Target manufactured a heated gantry shelf to fit over an existing table ensuring piping hot plates and food left this amazing little kitchen in one of Burford's best loved hotels in the picturesque Cotswolds.

Completed before Christmas the kitchen was awarded a 5 star kitchen hygiene rating and operates like a dream for Stewart who commented

"life is so much easier with the induction cooking equipment and the powerful mini combi"

Traditional Italian Oven Hits The Mark At Punch Taverns

Punch Taverns's latest refurbishment at The Middle Bell, Staffordshire, created an Italian restaurant and authentic pizzeria using a rotating, traditional Italian oven made in Italy by MAM Forni, supplied and installed by Target Catering Equipment, sole UK importers.

The latest rotating oven installation at The Middle Bell, Barton Under Needwood was on the first floor.  The installation was made possible by the design of the oven which enabled all components to fit through a standard single door way.  Reuse of the existing chimney flue required no further planning consent in this listed building although a wall was removed in order to accomodate the traditional Italian oven. Finished in brick, the pizza oven looks the part in the Italian De Mezzo Restaurant.

All traditional ovens are tried and tested at Target's factory prior to despatch to customers.  Each oven is individually supplied direct from MAM Forni in Modena using Target's own dedicated transport and installation team.

Target's MAM pizza ovens are available in many shapes and sizes with dome ovens suitable for domestic house installations as well as the largest pizzerias and restaurants.

Wood fired or with a programmable gas burner for ease of use these traditional Italian ovens produce pizza in amazingly quick time as well as perfect real bread baked on residual heat which is held in the oven overnight ready for bread baking the next morning.

Surprisingly economic, the ovens only cost an average of £1.20 per hour to keep running on full power reaching a temperature of 300°C then considerably less once main operating temperature is reached.

Try before you buy at Target's demonstration and test kitchen, cook your own pizza recipe and see how good it really is in a MAM Forni, traditional Italian oven.

Located in the basement of a Grade II listed building the Bistrot Coco kitchen needed to comply with planning regulations.  With its reduced ventilation requirements and the ability of the hobs to remain cool producing a comfortable working environment, the Target heavy duty, commercial induction range cooker was the ideal choice.  The bespoke induction range cooker, commissioned by Marcel, also included a built in electric griddle and deep fat fryer.

Commercial Dishwasher System Streamlines Dishwash Chores At The Butchers Arms

Commercial dishwasher, dishwasher tables and dishwashing systems, manufactured by Target Catering Equipment, save time and money in any kitchen, large or small.  Target's design team can design a system that works for you and their skilled craftsmen will make and install, ensuring a perfect fit and best use of space.

The recently awarded,  one Michelin Star chef, James Winter of The Butchers Arms, Eldersfield, Gloucester, wanted to upgrade his kitchen and asked Target to help improve his dish and pot wash facility.  His old dishwasher was regularly failing and costing a fortune in repairs.

Target recommended a DC Product's front loading, premium commercial dishwasher.  Positioned alongside a bespoke stainless steel sink, this would make for ease of use and save staff from having to bend and lift heavy baskets.  Ideally a pass through commercial dishwasher would have been better, but because the kitchen was so small it would not fit and would take up too much space.

Target made a bespoke dishwasher table with inset pot wash sinks, prewash and waste scrap hole to speed up the dishwashing process and streamline the kitchen.

With the help of Target's stainless steel manufacturing facility, James is continuing to upgrade his kitchen.  The next addition will be a purpose built stainless steel hot cupboard under a worktop with built in handwash sink and storage space under producing a continuous seamless workspace in the kitchen.

However small your commercial kitchen is, Target can manufacture stainless steel units which utilise every available space efficiently.
