UK-based Induced Energy is donating a percentage of sales on a new equipment line to a charity backed by the chef that came up with the idea.
Hayden Groves, a former national chef of the year and executive chef at Baxter Storey approached the Northamptonshire manufacturer with a suggestion that it looks into producing a stockpot trolley.
His proposition led to Induced Energy launching the iStock, which has already become a big success.
As a thank you to Groves for his idea and ongoing support of the brand, Induced Energy is donating £20 from the sale of every base unit sold in 2015 to his nominated charity, Cure Leukemia UK, for whom he is undertaking a gruelling 3,344km bike ride along the route of the 2015 Tour de France.
The stockpot trolley consists of two parts: a mobile trolley and a single ring induction hob. The trolley is a fully welded stainless steel base mounted on heavy-duty castors which, when not in use, has the added flexibility of allowing chefs to remove the hob and use it as a table-top unit.
