Charvet Premier Ranges sales director, Ian Clow, says: “The growing trend for open kitchens is leading to increased demand for ‘statement’ ranges. At Charvet we are in the unique position to be able to supply customers exactly what they want.”

Stand 530 will be home to both Falcon Foodservice Equipment, which will be showing the latest additions to its ranges of equipment, as well as previewing new products. 

This includes a new flexi pan for the F900 range, a 400mm wide multifunctional unit, two electric chargrills for the Dominator+ range, and the latest version of the Lainox Naboo combi oven. This now includes Just-In-Time and Multilevel cooking, as well as the Lainox Cloud service that allows remote control of multiple units and access to a recipe database for maximum flexibility.

As Britain’s sole manufacturer of commercial induction technology, Induced Energy prides itself in the design and manufacture of premium induction products, and the team is looking forward to sharing its latest innovations at the Professional Kitchen Show. 

Induced Energy, which is exhibiting on stand 630, believes its British heritage and ergonomic manufacturing processes sets it apart from its competition.

Each of its product ranges is designed with the customer, the environment and performance in mind. By prioritising these things, it feels it is able to offer an innovative induction portfolio that ticks all the right boxes for the modern-day kitchen.

German combi oven manufacturer Rational will demonstrate the multifunctionality of its SelfCookingCenter (SCC) and VarioCookingCenter (VCC) at stand 310. The live demonstrations will show how, in tomorrow’s kitchen, chefs can use the VCC and SCC in tandem for all their cooking solutions.

Rational chefs will be cooking food from a menu including mixed breakfast items, griddling steaks, snacks, stir fry, fish, desserts, steamed products, bakery goods and a la carte dishes.

Rational will also feature in the Kitchenology Smart Kitchen, showcasing its technology and the ConnectedCooking network solution. It allows users to link Rational appliances to a network, enabling them to monitor operations and upload programs remotely.

Synergy Grill will use the Professional Kitchen Show to reinforce its status as a provider of energy efficient cooking systems and promote its new licensing partnership with Lincat. 

Visitors to stand 510 will be able to witness and taste the results of the Synergy Grill via live cooking demonstrations that will highlight the multifunctional usage of the unit, while also being immersed in the new Synergy Grill brand identity, which reportedly better reflects the technology behind the product.

Elsewhere, Valentine and sister company Cuisinequip will have a range of cooking and food preparation systems on offer at stand 430.

The core of the range includes the Valentine Evo 200-600 model fryers, while space has been reserved for the new Evo 2200PP twin pump fryer with oil filtration. Additionally, the Swiss manufacturer’s Alpina 300 Eco fryer will be available for operators to see firsthand. 

Also on display will be cooking systems from Locher, including the electric chargrill, Hotstar display trolley and Rustica electric steak grill. Bottene completes the line-up with its PM50 fresh pasta machine in red and BE90 ravioli maker.

Meanwhile, Welbilt will be providing PKS visitors with the first opportunity to see the latest addition to the Merrychef family, the Eikon e1s on stand 524.

Making its UK debut at the show, the Merrychef Eikon e1s is said to demonstrate the best in high-speed oven technology.

With a small footprint of just 410mm, the e1s is designed to provide a compact and versatile user-friendly cooking solution up to 10 times faster than conventional ovens.
