Fast solutions

Apuro has launched a range of fast-cook equipment that doesn't need any specialist kitchen skills to operate.

The two new light-duty 1.1kw Samsung microwaves are designed to sit on work tops and have five power levels and a 26-litre capacity. The list price for each model is £425, excluding VAT.

Pizzas can be cooked super-fast with Apuro's new SmartCook Pizza Oven from Whirlpool.

Small enough to stand on a pub kitchen worktop, the SmartCook is available for £2,359 excluding VAT.

Contact grills offer a versatile, fast, healthy way of cooking, and because food is cooked simultaneously on both sides, cooking times are very short. The Ital range of contact grills is ideal for grilling meats and fish as well as searing vegetables or making toasties and paninis. The range has six models, costing between £389 to £569 excluding VAT.

Freedom to fry

Moffat describes Cook-X4 as "a simple and compact counter-top deep-frying solution."

Moffat's countertop

Cook-X4 range includes fryers and accessories. Designed for small-to-medium sized catering operations, the three basic fryers have tough stainless-steel construction, lift-out elements and control units for easy cleaning, and thermostatic "oil-ready" indicators. They are supplied with stainless-steel baskets and dust covers.

The single-pan, 5-litre X4F1 is ideal for pubs with both busy and quiet periods, as one pan can be switched off when not required. The X4FF model has a larger tank, accommodating twin fry-baskets or single large fry-basket. An 8-litre capacity makes it ideal for sites with greater frying needs. The range features a doughnut kit, oil-filter system and accessories.

Steaming ahead

ServEquip recommends Henny Penny SpaceSaver combi-oven for added versatility and enhanced food quality.

With a footprint similar to a commercial microwave, the neatly-packaged combi-oven offers additional cooking applications such as roasting, grilling and steaming.

Patented advanced steam technology provides greater control of relative moisture and cooking climate, and the auto-reverse fan circulates heat evenly for uniform results.
