The new Merrychef eikon e2s compact high speed-oven has been highly commended in the Innovation Challenge Awards at this year’s Lunch! Show – several weeks before it becomes available for the general market to purchase.
The latest product innovation from Manitowoc Foodservice, the Merrychef eikon e2s has been engineered to be user friendly, versatile and provide consistent levels of performance.
The neatly styled oven, suitable for front of house operation, will prepare fresh, hot food on demand where space is at a premium. A merchandising panel is available on the ‘Trend’ model on the back of the unit should it be facing towards the customer.
Designed for use within the hustle and bustle of food-to-go outlets, the Merrychef eikon e2s ‘Trend’ also features accessory storage on top of the oven.
The eikon e2s will cook, reheat, toast and bake a wide range of food items such as toasted sandwiches, pizzas and wraps.
Phil Radford, vice president of the Merrychef brand, is delighted to have won the Award and commented: “Manitowoc Foodservice is thrilled to have been awarded highly commended in the Innovation Challenge and it is fantastic that the new Merrychef eikon e2s has been recognised by the industry with such an aptly named award.
“The Merrychef e2s is the most innovative product that we have launched to date with performance up to 20 times faster than a conventional oven whilst producing consistent, high-quality cooking results enabling establishments the ability to deliver fresher and more delicious hot food to customers.
“It’s hugely important that Merrychef products are recognised for the cutting edge design that forms a key part of our research and development process. Most importantly however, is that the design of the products fits the requirements of the hundreds of establishments and thousands of kitchen and front of house staff using the equipment every day. This award truly is a testimonial of our ‘eye for detail’ and investment into innovation with the new Merrychef eikon e2s.”
