FRIMA shows compact, multifunctional 112T at Casual Dining 2015, 25 – 26 February Stand G15 The BDC, London
Those cooking in kitchens where space is limited but expectations high are always looking for equipment that offers big functions in a small footprint. FRIMA’s compact VarioCooking Center Multificiency 112T on Stand G15 offers the solution to this conundrum.
The 112T is a tabletop version of the full-size FRIMA VarioCooking Center Multificiency. It’s a multifunction cooking appliance, which allows chefs to boil, grill, fry, low temperature cook and deep fry, precisely and easily, all in one unit. It’s up to four times as fast, and saves up to 40% in energy, compared to conventional appliances.
Despite measuring just 962mm wide by 800mm deep and 400mm high, it has two 14 litre pans, giving it the same capacity as its larger stablemate, the VCC 112. The 112T takes space-saving multifunctional cooking technology to a new level. It can replace kettles, tilting pans, bratt pans, fryers and griddles, saving 30% or more space in the kitchen.
“The great thing about the 112T is that it can be used anywhere,” says Graham Kille, managing director of FRIMA UK. “On a table, a work surface, a central cooking block or moved to where it is needed for any casual dining situation. It’s just as versatile as the established VarioCooking Center models, but takes up much less space.”
The 112T features several new intelligent cooking processes of special interest to the casual dining sector, including automatic processes for sous vide, confit and steaming. As with all the VarioCooking Center’s processes, they cook without the need for monitoring and with no chance of sticking or scorching.
Visitors to the stand will be able to see the 112T and watch videos of it in action to get an idea of its capabilities and the vast array of cooking processes it can tackle. The larger VarioCooking Center 211+ will also be on display, so chefs and managers will be able to choose which size is best suited to their operation.
