Lincat has introduced three powerful, high efficiency gas chargrills as part of its new Opus 800 range of heavy duty catering equipment.
The innovative design of their infra-red ceramic plaque burners produces intense heat output from relatively low kW input, resulting in outstanding cooking performance and energy efficiency.
Capable of achieving temperatures of up to 800°C, as compared to the 400°C of a traditional chargrill with tubular burners, they use up to 40% less gas. This is because they don’t have to operate on their highest setting to achieve the optimum cooking temperature.
Their capacity to produce more heat is not wasted however since, at the highest 800°C setting, the chargrill will clean itself. They also offer extremely fast heat up of 10 minutes as compared to the 20 minutes required by a traditional chargrill, according to Lincat.
Flexibility is provided by multiple heat zones which can be operated separately. These enable users to either create a heat gradient across the cooking area, or to turn sections off during quiet periods to save energy.
The heat radiants, which shield each burner, have been designed to deliver the optimum amount of flaring to produce a delicious chargrilled taste.
“Chargrilled food and healthier options continue to grow in popularity,” says Helen Applewhite, marketing manager of Lincat. “Our high output gas chargrills can help businesses to widen their menu, increase their output and reduce their operating costs – without the need for messy charcoal or lava rock.”
All of the new models are supplied as counter-top units but can be mounted on optional floor stands. They are equipped with reversible branding grids, heavy-duty radiant caps to protect the burners, and flame failure protection.
A branding grid scraper and cleaning spatula are supplied as standard.
