Gilpin Hotel & Lake House (1 Michelin Star) - Windemere, Lake District


Gordon Cartwright, Executive Chef Director at the Gilpin Hotel & Lake House, decided to switch to an all electric kitchen, commissioning a Target commercial range cooker with induction cooktop and plancha grill for the Michelin starred restaurant.

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 assembly areas, each with its own suspended heat lamp, hot holding section.

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 orchestrated 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 kitchen and saving a fortune in refurbishment costs.

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