Synergy Grill – the maker of commercial gas ovens used by the likes of TGI Fridays and The Alchemist – has confirmed it will launch an electric version of its product for the first time.
The UK-based manufacturer shook up the market 10 years ago when it launched its original gas grill with a patented vapourisation system that dramatically reduced energy usage and simplified cleaning.
Now it is aiming to do the same in the electric sector with the Synergy eGrill, which it claims features “never-seen-before technology”.
The atomisation process – similar to the one found in the gas product – means that natural food oils are used as a secondary heat source, thereby turning fat into free fuel.
The result is an environmentally responsible grill which saves 12 tons of CO2 residue per year in comparison to a standard electric grill, it says.
Justin Cadbury, chairman of Synergy Grill Technology, insists the eGrill has the potential to change the electric grill market even more fundamentally than the original Synergy Grill transformed the gas grill sector.
“This Synergy eGrill is an industry-changing new product for those who prefer electricity to gas, but who also want lower energy costs and better food quality. It has taken us a long time to launch the new electric grill because, quite simply, in order to be called a ‘Synergy Grill’ it has to meet certain criteria including: less energy usage, carbon footprint reduction and, of course, money savings.”
Mr Cadbury said the move would widen its portfolio to give operators a greater choice of grills and meet demand for greener products.
“As we increasingly move into a more environmentally-friendly and sustainability conscious era, electric grills are becoming more frequently requested, especially from countries who are looking to switch to 100% electric in the coming years, such as those in Scandinavia and Benelux. We are delighted and proud of our achievement to develop a product that complements our existing product base so perfectly with our existing gas-powered range.”
Food cooked on an eGrill is self-basted in its own natural vapour, meaning there is no over-charring or the ‘black smoke’ taste that is sometimes associated with grills. The atomisation process eliminates the need for a fat tray and removes the risk of irresponsible disposal of fatty waste.
Synergy eGrills are available in 600 and 900D models, as well as a Synergy Outdoor Cook Station.
