Lincat has developed a ‘mix and match’ package of light-duty, cost-effective equipment to help cafes or restaurants that have moved to a takeaway offer as a result of the coronavirus outbreak,
Caterers can choose from a range of compact, countertop items including a convection oven, fryer, pizza oven, contact grill, bain marie and hot cupboard – all of which can be delivered in 24 hours and with minimal investment.
The items all operate from a 13-amp plug and are supplied with a two-year on-site parts and labour warranty.
In addition, Lincat is offering culinary support to outlets looking to diversify through its new Chef-line telephone service.
Paul Hickman, Middleby culinary UK director, said: “We understand this may be completely new territory for some, which is why we wanted to highlight some of the key, core pieces of equipment, which they can mix and match, to get up and running.
“Our selection enables caterers to do this in 24 hours, with minimal investment and space, as the equipment offers high output from a small footprint.”
The Lynx 400 LCO/T convection oven has a temperature range of 50°C to 250°C and a 2.5kW fan-assisted oven that delivers consistent, even results. It is ideal for cooking light lunch items such as jacket potatoes.
The small Lynx 400 LDF general purpose fryer has thermostatic control to produce items such as chips, chicken nuggets and battered fish, while the multi-functional LDPO pizza oven can help caterers create authentic-tasting pizzas, as well as lasagne, toasties and garlic bread.
Its LBM2 bain marie can hold soup, baked beans and jacket potato fillings, whilst our PLH60 hot cupboard can keep food, such as pizzas, at safe, optimum serving temperature until it’s ready to be taken away.
