The FRIMA family will be out in force at Commercial Kitchen, The Catering Equipment Show, with three different models on the stand. The biggest is the 211+ floor-standing version and the smallest is the counter top 112T, while the newest is the counter top 112L.
These models will give visitors a great overview of the FRIMA range. The FRIMA VarioCooking Center is a modern, multifunctional cooking appliance that can replace kettles, large pots, bratt pans, fryers and griddles, saving 30% or more space in the kitchen. It’s super-fast too – four times faster than conventional cooking. For even speedier cooking the 211+ has a pressure cooking feature that can cut cooking times for products such as casseroles, soups and stocks by 50% or more.
The latest member to the family, the 112L, was developed in direct response to customer demand. It is a two-pan unit, each with a capacity of 25 litres. Previous Frima two-pan units have had 14 litre pans.
The 112L’s two pans offer maximum flexibility both in production and in à la carte. Chefs can be boiling pasta in one pan and cooking steaks in the other, frying chips in one and creating béchamel sauce in the other – the potential is vast. The 50 litre capacity provides sufficient frying surface and boiling capacity even at peak times. The height of the pan base is ergonomically designed to make it easy for chefs to work with, which is an important benefit compared to tilting pans or other multifunctional appliances.
The 112T has already proved popular as it brings the advantages of multi-function equipment to the kitchens where space is limited. It can be sited anywhere. On a table, a work surface, a central cooking block, a production area… wherever it’s needed. 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.
On the stand FRIMA experts will be able to advise chefs and catering managers as to which VarioCooking Center is right for their establishment.
