The Merrychef eikon e2s performs up to twenty times faster than a conventional oven and produces consistent, high-quality cooking results; delivering more delicious fresh hot food to customers. The new Merrychef eikon ® e2s is ideally suited for use in catering units, cafés, coffee shops, sandwich bars and delis – or any such outlet where menus, space, foot traffic or customers dictate a fast turnaround on food orders.
Featuring easyTouch® technology with an icon driven touch screen, the Merrychef eikon e2s is simple to operate by any member of the staff in the kitchen. A USB memory stick can be used to transfer up to 1,0 24 different cooking programmes, to ensure menu consistency, especially by operators with multiple locations. This feature helps maintain the same quality of menu choices in each outlet, every time.
Several design features make the Merrychef eikon e2s suitable for use in outlets where it will be installed front-of-house and is in constant use. Available in two exterior cool-to-the-touch options: Classic, featuring a stainless steel exterior and Trend, which offers a choice of two colour exteriors (red and black). The stylish design of the Merrychef eikon e2s makes it an aesthetically pleasing addition to any countertop. A merchandising panel is available on the ‘Trend’ model on the back of the unit should it be facing towards the customer. Designed for use within the hustle and bustle of food-to-go outlets, the Merrychef eikon e2s also features accessory storage on top of the oven. Operators can use this additional surface to store popular items which are in constant demand – from cups and cutlery, to condiments!
With the fastest warm-up and cool-down times in its class, the Merrychef eikon e2s reduces downtime and improves ease of use. Having such a fast warm-up time means reduced wait times at the start of the day whilst the oven’s fast cool-down time means that cleaning can be done shortly after the last order has been cooked. Additionally, its seam-welded cavity and large rounded edges makes cleaning quick and simple.
Measuring 620mm x 356mm x 595m m (H x W x D), the new Merrychef eikon e2s has the best-in-class cavity to footprint ratio (12” cavity in a 14” footprint). This ensures that the high-speed oven maximises available space and can fit on a standard 600mm deep work surface. To take this even further, an adaptor is available to connect two Merrychef eikon e2s standard power units to one 32A socket so ‘banks’ of ovens can be installed in busy outlets without a separate power socket for each unit.
