Induction Seduction: Falcon shows why schools are switching to induction cooking
Stand M25, the LACA Main Event, 10th-12th July 2019, the Hilton Birmingham Metropole
One of the most popular oven ranges in schools is the Dominator Plus six burner model from Falcon. Increasingly schools are looking for lower running costs and sustainability – and many are choosing to purchase Dominator Plus ranges with induction hobs. “Induction is faster than gas, it’s more controllable and it’s brilliantly energy efficient,” says Shaune Hall, development chef at Falcon. “Induction hobs are easy to clean and safer than gas, due to there being no naked flame, so it’s no surprise that they’re a big hit with school caterers.” Falcon plans to show the latest version of its Dominator Plus induction range at the Main Event.
Falcon will also be promoting the latest Lainox combi ovens for schools. The top of the range Naboo model features advanced software designed to make life easier in the school kitchen. For example, the Multilevel system allows school caterers to cook different products at the same time, with the intelligent recognition system identifying the suitable products, helping maximise output. Of course, lots of school caterers don’t want combi ovens with all the bells and whistles – they want a machine with straightforward controls that do what you tell them to. Enter the latest version of Lainox’s Sapiens combi oven, which is a manually controlled combi oven with plenty of advanced (and practical) features including an automatic washing system, a multipoint core temperature probe, inbuilt hand shower and storage of up to 99 recipe programmes.
“Lainox combis are the perfect complement to Falcon’s horizontal cooking appliances in schools,” says Shaune. “The ‘combination’ of a combi oven with an oven range and a fryer gives most school kitchens everything they need.”
Falcon’s school catering specialists will be on stand throughout the LACA Main Event to talk about the all aspects of prime cooking in schools.
