Up until now and across the foodservice industry, the cost of induction has been prohibitive to many, meaning it has only been realistic for top chefs and the most elite kitchens. However, this is all about to change, thanks to an exciting new launch from British manufacturer, Burco by Glen Dimplex Professional Appliances, in the shape of the new Titan Induction Range Cooker.
Built using the latest innovative induction technology, the new British manufactured Titan Induction Range features a unique, five zone induction cooking hob, complete with a large 2/1 gastronorm compatible oven. Having already forged a reputation for reliability, this exciting new launch will take the brand’s portfolio to an entirely new level, offering the flexibility demanded by a modern kitchen combined with exceptional energy efficiency, and what’s more, thanks to the unique design, the Titan Induction Range is compatible with both a single or multi-phase power supply.
Experts agree that induction technology is around about 90% energy efficient, this is compared to standard gas being 50% or electric being 55% energy efficient. By simply generating heat inside the induction compatible pan or cooking vessel, the technology is able to virtually eliminate wasted heat escaping into the kitchen environment. In turn, this allows operators to use less energy to cook, but also less energy to cool what would otherwise be an uncomfortably hot working environment.
What’s more, because induction technology generates the heat inside the pan, it means surrounding surfaces will be cooler to touch and with a heavy duty glass hob, it is simple to wipe clean and maintain. The technology also offers instantaneous heat thanks to its very nature and design. Making the most of this instant heat, the Titan Induction range features simple to operate temperature dials, which allow the chef to adjust the power according to their needs and an instant response altering the temperature to prevent overcooking or burning.
Taking existing induction technology to the next level, the new Titan Induction Range features five independently controlled cooking zones, four x 1.9kW with one centrally located 2.6kW, each zone also features a ‘Boost’ mode for when additional power is required. This boost function allows the operator to inject a 10-minute power increase for when rapid heating is required. For further energy saving and safety, the Titan unit also features Advanced Smart Pan Detection technology, meaning the unit will only ever consume power and generate heat when a pan is in place. A choice of three pre-set cooking controls ‘melt’, ‘simmer’ or ‘cook’ along with the ability to select your own temperature setting on a 1-9 temperature control ensures maximum versatility and simplicity.
The Titan range comes with a 6mm thick glass hob to withstand the demands of a commercial kitchen and with heavy-duty fitted castors as standard and side opening oven doors, giving chefs easier access in compact kitchen environments. Fitted with easy-to-replace air filtration cartridges, operators can be confident in the ongoing efficiency and smooth running of their appliance over a sustained period.
Jon Usher, Head of UK Sales & Marketing at Glen Dimplex Professional Appliances, manufacturers of the Titan range comments:
“For a number of years, induction technology has been seen as the domain of top chefs in large kitchens; a nice to have but something that often far exceeds the budgets of many operators throughout the industry.”
“Because of this, we have spent a great deal of time developing the new Titan Induction Range. Offering the very latest technology at a price that is affordable to all – cafés, coffee shops, hotels and restaurants alike, all can now enjoy the significant energy efficiency savings achievable by using induction cooking technology.”
“Induction technology means the heat is generated in the pan base itself from an electromagnetic field. By simply placing an induction compatible pan on cooking area, this field excites the molecules in the base of the pan to create heat, which in turn cooks the food.”
Manufactured at the company’s base in Prescot, Merseyside, the Titan Induction Range comes complete with a full three year parts and labour warranty, meaning your appliance can be relied on when you need it most. Terms and conditions apply.
