Gloucester-based Magdalen House Nursing Home has benefited from quicker meal preparation times since it installed the Frima 112T.
Over the summer of 2016 the kitchen underwent a refurbishment which included head chef Jo Galling installing modernised kitchen equipment.
Following a Frima CookingLive event Galling invested in a Frima 112T, a countertop piece of cooking equipment that combines all the functions of a boiling kettle, fryer, griddle, bratt pan and pressure cooker in one unit, as part of the modernising project.
“I’ve definitely noticed how much quicker it is to use the Frima,” says Galling. “It’s eased up the workload in the kitchen, improved the quality of the food and makes getting the meals out on time much easier.”
The nursing home uses the Frima for boiling vegetables, making gravy and stocks and cassaroles, but is now looking to expand its range.
“I know there’s an awful lot more I could be doing with the Frima. I’m still learning. It’s just a question of trying out new ideas and seeing how they work. When we have Sunday dinners some of the residents invite family members to join them and the ease of cooking with the Frima really takes the stress out of producing these meals. The quality is outstanding,” Galling added.
