Frima has filled a gap in its equipment portfolio by launching a 50 litre multifunctional cooking unit.
The 112L is a two-pan unit, each with a capacity of 25 litres, and was introduced after demand from customers who requested a model that sat in between the smallest and largest variations of its offering.
Previous Frima two-pan units have had 14 litre pans, but it also offers models up to 150 litres.
Like the recently launched 112T, the new unit is a counter top model that can easily be installed on the work bench, on a stand or elsewhere. Frima insists it can replace griddles, kettles, bratt pans, large pots and fryers.
The height of the pan base is ergonomically designed to make it easy for chefs to work with, which is an important benefit compared to tilting pans or other multifunctional appliances, according to the firm.
“With the new 112L model, we are filling a gap in our product range, offering customers an even greater selection of VarioCooking Center Multificiency appliances,” said Michael Fuchs, chairman of the board of Frima International.
“The new model is ideal for anyone needing the flexibility of two pans, but who has limited space, while also having to produce larger quantities during peak times.”
The system features an overnight cooking function that creates additional capacity by cooking without supervision. Control features notify staff when pan fried foods need turning, while the machine regulates the temperature and timing to the precise degree and second, so that food and liquids never burn, boil over or stick.
“Customers had been asking about a model that bridged the gap between the original, smaller 112 units and the larger 211 and 311 VarioCooking Centers, which have capacities of 100 and 150 litres respectively,” said Graham Kille, managing director of Frima UK. “Then, in 2015, Frima talked to 400 chefs across Europe and they confirmed the demand for the 50 litre model. However, they wanted the flexibility of the two pans – and so the 112L was created.”
