A growing North East England pub and hotel group has equipped its kitchens with cooking appliances from Synergy Grill as part of an effort to reduce catering bills.
Four SG630 Synergy Grills have been installed in each of the four restaurant kitchens run by Proud Inns in Durham and the surrounding area. The group has bought in the British made chargrills with the intention of cutting energy costs by up to 50%.
“We were looking for quality, innovation and speed and we wanted to buy British,” said Steve Proud, business development manager at family-run Proud Inns.
“Our kitchens are busy producing a very high standard of pub food and both superior quality and efficiency is important. Synergy Grill gives us a top quality, British made product. The grills are both easy to use and easy to clean, thanks to Synergy Grills innovative atomising technology. They are also very efficient and we believe we will achieve a 50% saving on gas usage.”
The Synergy Grill features a patented fuel-efficient burner. It works at a very high temperature and its fat atomising technology creates grilled food while using around half the energy of a conventional grill.
“The presentation of food produced on our Synergy Grills is superb with chargrill marks on our chicken and steaks. The feedback from our chefs has been brilliant,” says Mr Proud.
Justin Cadbury, CEO and chairman of Synergy Grill, added: “Proud Inns is a growing business with four fabulous pub restaurants. They told us they were looking for innovation in their kitchens and we are delighted that they recognised the advantages that a Synergy Grill brings.
“Our grills help chefs to produce succulent, delicious grilled meat and vegetables and our fat atomising technology means they are easy to clean.
