BAO packs big flavours from a small kitchen packed with Precision

Variety of refrigeration manufacturer’s range helps designers maximise chilled storage

precision-at-baoThe Taiwanese and Chinese street food-inspired restaurant chain BAO gets rave reviews.  Its latest venue is in Windmill Street, Fitzrovia, just off Tottenham Court Road, seats 47 and, if its established Soho site is anything to go by, there will be queues of eager eaters stretching down the road – a result of BAO’s outstanding dishes, low prices and ‘no-booking’ policy.

BAO specialises in ‘guabao’ which are Taiwanese steamed buns, as well as ‘xiao chi’ or small eats. A family owned business, the BAO story began with a six-seater bar and stall in Netil Market a few years back.  “We opened our first restaurant in Soho in April shing-tat-chung-in-front-of-precision-wall-cabinets-in-the-bao-kitchen2015,” says Shing Tat Chung, co-founder.  “Now we have this new venue in Fitzrovia.

Wall cabinet fridges: Precision Refrigeration helps chefs put a quart into a pint pot

Precision wall mounted fridgeAs kitchen space gets ever more pressurised, chefs are looking for innovative ways to fit their quarts into pint pots. Now British manufacturer Precision has launched new versions of its wall cabinet range of fridges. They increase storage space without having any impact on the kitchen footprint – because they make use of ‘dead’ space, on the wall.

The latest versions feature Precision’s new oversized digital display, for easy monitoring and precise temperature control, a stylish new grill that delivers better airflow, flush door handles, and the new iCool Controller. This not only adjusts performance to minimise energy use, but also learns how the operator works to predict usage and ensure the refrigeration system runs as efficiently as possible.

Precision's self-contained refrigerated drawerBritish manufacturer Precision has launched a new self-contained refrigerated drawer that the company claims is the most energy efficient on the market – and the most economic to buy.

The drawer, model VSS 121, is part of the Space Saver range and is designed to be as versatile as possible.  Its fire-rated worktop means cooking equipment such as a grill can be mounted on top of a single unit.  Alternatively, two drawers can be stacked to save space and create a work-level countertop.  The drawer’s temperature range is from +15°C to – 22°C, meaning it can be used for every refrigerated storage application.  It can be switched from refrigerator to freezer at the touch of a button.

The drawer will hold up to 4 GN1/1 pans and measures 1100mm(w) x 200mm(d) x 285mm(h).
