Falcon Foodservice Equipment has launched an electric version of its F900 chargrill. Based on its gas model, the two new electric chargrills promise ultra-fast heat up times, energy efficiency and ease of use.
Both F900 electric chargrills are available as a counter top model or on fixed or mobile stands. They are aimed at sites that can’t, or prefer not to, use gas or solid fuel chargrills and can be used in either back of house or front of house kitchens.
The E9460 has a single element, with a rating of 8.4kW, and a cooking area of 450mm wide by 590mm. The E9490 has two elements, a rating of 13.44kW and a total cooking area of 730mm wide by 590mm. And the E9490’s two elements are independently-controlled, so one can be switched off to save energy during quieter periods.
The Falcon models’ powerful performance means that, unlike gas models, they heat up very quickly so they only need to be turned on just before cooking is to be done.
Food is cooked directly on the elements themselves, delivering the distinctive branding demanded from this method of cooking.
Being designed for front-of-house use, the F900 electric chargrills have removable lining sheets to keep the chamber below the elements clean. They direct the grease and debris into the container below, which doesn’t require any water, so can be easily disposed of. Its removable magnetic side-screens contain splatter, while the elements swivel upwards to ease cleaning. As with other F900 models, the chargrills are IPX5-rated for deep cleaning.
The new chargrills feature Falcon’s patented Dynamic Link System (DLS), which creates a virtually seamless link between F900 appliances, giving the flexibility of a modular system, with the hygiene benefits of a one-piece island suite.
Both F900 chargrills require a 32A three-phase supply. The E9460 measures 600mm wide by 900mm deep and 350mm high, while the E9490 is 900mm by 900mm by 350mm. With the stands the height for both models is 900mm.
