Electrolux Professional has launched the LiberoPro, a “hyper-versatile” mobile cooking solution that is built on the popularity of its predecessor but with post-Covid challenges in mind.
The modular design means it can be customised to suit any requirements, with users able to choose from a range of add-ons and appliances such as griddles, shelves and refrigerated drawers.
One of the options is the new LiberoPro induction hob range, which can be included as part of a ‘drop in configuration’ to offer speed and flexibility thanks to the unique heating system and smart electronic controls.
As it is a plug-and-play appliance, Electrolux believes the system is suited to a range of locations, from operations that offer street food or buffets, through to QSR applications, events and prestige hotels.
Stuart Flint, training and demonstration manager at Electrolux Professional, said: “The past 18 months have highlighted the resilience and ingenuity of the hospitality industry. One of the defining features has been the ability of businesses to adapt, to survive, and ultimately to thrive in delivering new types of service.
“Our LiberoPro line has been designed to facilitate this flexible approach. It is perfectly suited to outdoor cooking, which allows venues to grow their service during the warmer months. It is equally adept in a more traditional application, and benefits from a low-noise air filtration system that efficiently absorbs grease particles and odours for use in indoor settings.
“Crucially, it can be easily moved between environments depending on demand, time of year, or the weather, without the need for permanent installation.”
One of the defining features of the new line is the LiberoPro induction griddle, which offers up to 20% savings on energy bills thanks to its superior efficiency, according to the brand.
An aluminium layer in the cooking plate delivers uniform cooking across the whole surface, from centre through to the corners, filling caterers with the confidence to serve restaurant-quality food whatever the application.
Mr Flint added: “As a manufacturer of cooking equipment, it’s vital that we provide caterers with everything they need to meet customer expectations. We’re dedicated to providing a freedom within cooking, and that’s something that the LiberoPro line achieves thanks to its outstanding versatility. In an ever-changing catering landscape, the ability to adapt will go a long way to determining ongoing success.”
