BGL Rieber is introducing the new Marvel range of pressure steamers from Finnish manufacturer Metos to the UK market.
The portfolio includes the E1 4GN single chamber model and the E2 8GN double chamber model. Both are compactly designed, offering the user high capacity output in a minimal space.
Cooking in both chambers at once is a noticeable upgrade on the E2 8GN model, according to the company. Each chamber can also operate separately.
The units are controlled by a simple touch-screen display while a choice of 12 active alarms notifies the chef of finished cooking stages. Colour-coded zones on the control panel give the user visual identification of pre-loading, cooking and de-pressurisation stages of the production process.
The Marvel operates up to a maximum of 120°C (1 bar pressure) and features automated cleaning, maintenance reminders and treatment programmes to protect the heating elements.
BGL Rieber says the Metos Marvel is particularly useful in situations where the amount of food needed changes rapidly and unexpectedly. Additional portions can be prepared for service quickly, as the chamber needs no preheating and dishes can be cooked simultaneously without flavour transfer.
