Induction Hobs Replace Gas At Eight Bells Inn

Prestigious Cotswold's pub, The Eight Bell 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 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 be 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 postion over cobbled walkways on its height adjustable castors.

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