Induced Energy has demonstrated the true power of induction after its involvement in a project to design a state-of-the-art cooking and keep-hot station for food manufacturer Apetito’s new show kitchen.
Having spent time at Induced Energy’s Northamptonshire factor exploring the options available to it, the Apetito team instructed it to come up with a design that is styled on a high-end domestic kitchen but with the efficiency and build quality of a commercial kitchen.
Nic Banner, sales director at Induced Energy, said the company was able to harness the benefits of induction technology to deliver a facility for Apetito that is totally unique to their field.
“The area in which the equipment is installed is relatively small, containing approximately 20 seats, so it was imperative that this space was kept as cool as possible, which is one of the benefits of induction cooking. In addition, the health and safety aspect of cooking directly in front of their clients was always going to be an issue, and one that is overcome by the safety features built into all Induced Energy induction technology.”
The demo kitchen features two iPlate 2/1 GN keep-hot units and two CS3000DF-P single zone invisible induction hobs. All were installed under a lava and quartz stone surface.
Working in conjunction with Red Joinery of Shoreham by Sea, Induced Energy specified everything within the counter with the exception of the oak finishes and the very impressive control panel inset into a black corian surround, which was the idea of the joiner.
“It is unusual to have a counter of this exceptional specification built for a food manufacturer,” said Mr Banner. “Apetito was a pleasure to work with and fully embraced the invisible induction concept, which gives their clients the ‘wow’ factor, as they simply cannot understand where the power source to heat the pan is coming from.”
