Welbilt UK has created a ‘cook, hold and deliver’ equipment solution for operators keen to tap into the takeaway market.
The package consists of a Garland powered by Inducs INSTINCT Hob, rechargeable multi-layer plate and compatible delivery bag, allowing operators to manage freshly cooked takeaway items in a few simple steps.
Once the delivery bag is placed on the hob and heated for one minute at level 10, the delivery bag will be sufficiently charged to keep food items hot for up to 50 minutes.
Welbilt says that a delivery bag charged on a Garland powered by Inducs INSTINCT hob sustained food items at temperatures between 60⁰C and 65⁰C, meaning operators can feel confident that their food items will be delivered in perfect condition.
In contrast, it claims that a test carried out on a standard insulated delivery bag show that food items cooked and placed into the bag at 75⁰C dropped to temperatures as low as 30⁰C in just 35 minutes.
Sales director Steve Hemsil said: “One of the key factors that operators must consider when it comes to ensuring customer satisfaction with takeaway food orders is how hot the food items will be when reaching the customer; after all, low temperatures not only affect the taste and texture of foods, but also present food safety risks due to increased risk of bacteria growth.”
