Regale Microwave Ovens has announced another worldwide patent for its popular Microwave Cavity Liner.
After more than a decade of development, the latest version of the cavity liner boasts a special curved base, which the company says offers superior cooking performance and product robustness.
Deputy managing director, Iain Phillips, said: “The thought that has gone into resolving the problems by the team of individual specialists – Dr. Andrew Sant of GovGrant and Mark Thompson of Plastech, in conjunction with Patrick Bray of Regale – is very much to be admired and has resulted in a unique method of production.”
The latest development means Regale, with Microsave, can join the unique ‘Patent Box’ network.
Patent Box is a special, low corporate tax regime used by several countries to incentivise research and development by taxing patent revenues differently from other commercial revenues, giving Regale a funding boost that will allow more R&D for the Microsave family.
Production of the Microsave cavity liners has now started in Chicago, providing it with a hub to serve the USA, Canada and South America.
This complements its production site in the UK, which supplies markets in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. With North America underway, the Far East is the next target market for Microsave, according to Mr Phillips.
The Microsave Cavity Liner was first launched in the UK and is now used by top restaurant operators such as Whitbread and the Casual Dining Group.
It is now well-known for its hygiene protection, saving money on unnecessary repairs and reducing downtime caused by base plate problems.
Microsave cavity liners are now available for models by Daewoo, Marren, Menumaster, Panasonic, Samsung, Sharp and Valera.
