Lincat Expands 'No Frills' Phoenix Range With New Single-Phase Induction Oven Range

Lincat has launched a single-phase induction oven range as part of its ‘no frills’ Phoenix range of medium-duty prime commercial catering equipment. The PHER01/SPH induction oven range has been introduced in response to demand for the model from establishments with single-phase power.

At 800mm deep and 900mm wide, the powerful range is energy efficient and robustly constructed. The easy-to-clean induction hob top is constructed from 6mm thick high impact resistant glass. It features six 1.85kW induction zones, which can be boosted to 3kW when intense heat to conserve energy and ensures that heat is not lost into the kitchen.

Below, a powerful, twin fan-assisted 6kW oven provides fast heat-up times and is able to accommodate six 1/1 gastronorms, enabling different foods to be cooked simultaneously. Heavy-duty castors, to facilitate cleaning, are provided as standard.

In addition to the induction oven range, Lincat’s new Phoenix electric salamander is now available to order, following its launch at the Restaurant Show last month. The PHEAS01 is equipped with fast heat up ‘Hi-Light’ elements, which are ready to cook in just eight seconds. It has three heat zones, enabling the operator to only switch on the area required, to conserve energy.

Helen Applewhite, Marketing Manager of Lincat Ltd, said:

“Operators would have traditionally paid more for energy efficient equipment such as this, but our no frills Phoenix range provides cutting edge technology at an affordable price. This is why we have experienced positive pre-sale demand for Phoenix products.”

Convotherm Launches New Design Line With The Mini Black Combi Oven

Convotherm, a global Welbilt brand, launches the new Mini Black. Designed with a black exterior and control panel, extra-large observation window and a small footprint, the combi oven is ideal for front-of-house use.

“The matt surface of the compact combi oven gives it a clean elegant look, and is perfect for serving areas at petrol stations, bakeries, snack bars, coffee shops, cafes and much more”, says Arndt Manter, Director of Product Management at Convotherm.

The Mini Black also features a clever interior design, with a large cooking chamber providing plenty of space for efficient cooking and baking. The black version is available for the 6.06 Mini and 10.10 Mini models from the end of September 2018.

The Mini Black complements Convotherm’s product range, and with this new design the combi oven is perfect for use alongside other Welbilt appliances such as the Merrychef eikon® e2s Trend black.

A visual highlight for serving areas

The new Convotherm Mini, available with a black or stainless steel body, sticks to the “form follows function” principle and offers high-quality design alongside a wide range of applications and practical features.

The combi oven fits into its surroundings perfectly and is ideal for combining with other appliances in serving areas. The large observation window and modern surface make the Convotherm Mini Black attractive in terms of more than just looks - they also give the user maximum visual control over their dishes at all times.

The matt black coating ensures that fingerprints are not visible, meaning that it retains its clean and elegant appearance even after a whole day’s use.

The Convotherm Mini Black is available in two control modes: the manual control variant utilizing buttons and a tilt selector switch, or the easyTouch® user interface with its intuitive touchscreen controls.

A genuine all-rounder in an extremely compact design

With a width of just 51.5cm the lightweight Convotherm Mini Black is the perfect all-round solution for professional food preparation and is ideal for retrofitting in kitchen, retail or servery areas.

Although compact, the clever interior creates a spacious chamber for efficient cooking, making the Convotherm Mini Black a winner no matter what is required, whether it’s roasting, grilling, steaming, au gratin cooking, convenience frying or regenerating.

High-quality baking results with BakePro

The BakePro feature in the Convotherm Mini easyTouch® means that “freshly” baked products can go into production: the multistage baking profile increases output and produces high-quality results which have a longer shelf-life at the serving point, thanks to a specific preparation sequence which includes additional steam and rest periods for the convection.

The user can then customize the profiles for frozen, pre-cooked or pre-baked products by setting the time and temperature. The entire preparation process can also be adapted to meet the user’s needs - all they need to do is save the BakePro profiles in the Mini’s Cookbook with a new name, and then all product steps can be adjusted as required.

Automated cooking processes

The “easyStart” feature in the Convotherm Mini easyTouch®, which handles baking and cooking for six different product categories, is a particular bonus for users. The touchscreen shows the user which products are suitable for mixed loads while ignoring the products which, owing to thier preparation requirements, are not appropriate for the current baking and cooking process.

This feature not only ensures that the Mini is loaded with the right amounts at all times - it also guarantees that all food produced in the combi oven is cooked to perfection.

The mini easyTouch® also has a intuitive picture-based user interface, meaning that unskilled can use the mini black without requiring time-consumin training.

The perfect combination for snacks bars

Alongside the Merrychef eikon® e2s Trend black, the Convotherm Mini Black is the ideal option for snack bars. The two Welbilt appliances are not just the perfect visual fit with their matt black surface - they go together hand in hand when it comes to preparing food for snack bars too.

The Convotherm Mini is especially suitable for use at peak times, for example lunchtime, as it can prepare larger quantities of foods at the same time which can then be moved directly to the sales area. Outside peak times, the Merrychef eikon® e2s is the quick and easy way to reheat food prepared beforehand in the Convotherm Mini without compromising on quality.
