Blowing hot and cold: the best of both worlds

Moffat’s new MHC merchandiser combines hot and cold Grab & Go in one unit

PrintFood-to-go venues are often short of space front-of-house, so operators are increasingly looking for ways to offer a range of tasty Grab & Go menu items on a small footprint. As well as being compact, the display equipment needs to hold foods at safe temperatures, without deterioration, and show it off to its best advantage.

In response to customer demands, Moffat is launching the new MHC Grab & Go food merchandiser which innovatively combines hot and cold display in the one slimline unit. It’s ideal for keeping sandwiches, drinks and salads perfectly chilled, whilst keeping hot snacks such as pasties and sausage rolls at the ideal serving temperature.

The MHC features separate easy-to-read digital controls for the hot and cold shelves. The airflow on the hot shelves can be controlled between 65 and 85˚C, whereas the cold shelves are controlled to between 2 and 5˚C. The unit’s low level polar well is perfect for self-serve salads.

As well as being practical and functional, the MHC merchandiser looks good, too. It’s stylish curved glass design and angled shelves show the food off to its best advantage. While the base is available in a range of colours and graphic finishes to compliment the venue.

Moffat’s MHC food merchandiser measures 650mm (w) x 650mm (d) x 1825mm (h) and runs off a 13amp, 230V supply, making it simple to install and start using. The MHC comes with hook-on ambient baskets to maximise display area and boost impulse purchases. Optional tray slides and end shelves are also available.

The forthcoming MHC food merchandiser will be available from Moffat with a two-year warranty, for a list price of £4968.
