Rexmartins is hoping that its latest product – an induction-powered griddle with built-in fume filtration – will prove to be a hit with chain operators running open theatre kitchens.
The griddle incorporates a highly efficient electrostatic fume purification system which allows the unit to be sited practically anywhere including front-of-house locations.
At the heart of the griddle is a powerful (10kW) induction generator which creates intense central heat, for fast searing, and lower outer plate temperatures for gentler cooking and holding. Up to four temperature settings can be programmed for quick recall.
The built-in fume filtration system incorporates a 2kW fan which draws cooking fumes and grease particles through a multi-stage filtration process which incorporates a combination of ionisation technology, a 1.6kW electrostatic filtration bank and HEPA filters.
The hard chrome surface is both attractive and able to withstand the rigours of theatre-style food preparation and cooking, such as teppanyaki.
Nick McDonald, commercial director at Rexmartins, said: “Our new theatre griddle is an extension to our already extensive range of induction appliances. The combination of induction heating with ionisation and electrostatic fume filtration delivers high energy efficiency and eliminates virtually all cooking smoke and odours. It’s ideal for locations where separate extraction systems would be impractical or unaffordable.”
Rexmartins’ product range encompasses more than 200 products, including 700 series prime cooking equipment, front cooking stations, specialist grills and professional barbecues.
