The Fridge as a Phone Box: Williams showcases Chameleon service at Restaurant 2018
Manufacturer also shows latest Chef’s Drawer
Stand UE49, Restaurant Show 2018, Olympia London, October 1-3
If you want to see how to turn a fridge into a show stopper, check out Williams at the Restaurant Show 2018. The stand highlight is a Jade J300 cabinet decked out as a bright red telephone box – a classic British icon and a fridge in one. Also on show is the latest version of Williams Chef’s Drawer, a versatile and compact unit that helps maximise refrigerated storage in the kitchen.
Williams’ recently launched Chameleon finishing service has already rung bells with the foodservice market – so the decision to showcase it with a Jade J300 telephone box was an obvious one. Chameleon allows operators to personalise their refrigeration, using food safe vinyl wrapping that meets all food hygiene requirements, is heat resistant from -40°C up to 140°C, and has been awarded a BI fire rating. Tough enough to cope with busy catering environments, Chameleon has an eight-year shelf life.
In fairness, the new Jade J300 is an interesting product even without its Restaurant Show telephone makeover. It’s Williams’ most compact upright cabinet ever, with a footprint of just 595mm by 684mm and a storage capacity of just over 335 litres.
Meanwhile the Chef’s Drawer is a truly versatile refrigeration solution. It’s designed to fit perfectly with the latest prime cooking suites, such as the Falcon F900, so that the refrigerated ingredients are right where they are needed, at ‘the cook face’. Two drawers can be stacked on top of each other, to double storage in the same footprint and allow a refrigerator / freezer combination. The Chef’s Drawer accepts 2/1GN pans, up to 150mm deep, and offers a capacity of up to 94litres.
Williams personnel will be on hand throughout the Restaurant Show to give expert advice on all aspects of foodservice refrigeration.
