What the industry thinks of the Falcon 900
Huge potential for innovative, British-manufactured cooking appliance range
Falcon recently launched its F900 series, a comprehensive selection of 900mm-wide catering equipment capable of being linked together virtually seamlessly via the innovative Dynamic Link System. This allows chefs to create their ideal cookline, combining the flexibility of modular systems with the looks and hygiene benefits of one-piece island suites. The first major launch from the UK manufacturer in nearly twenty years, the F900 series has already been creating excitement in the UK industry – the more so since, until now, this category of cooking appliances has mainly only been available from European manufacturers.
The F900’s Dynamic Link System in particular has been praised for its potential.
Mark Kendall, Project Director at Inox Equip Ltd, said “The interlocking mechanism was, for me, the standout thing in a very strong product”. He also recognised the importance of bringing new UK manufactured product to market. “Within our industry we have a very busy period between July to September, which can make supply difficult as European manufacturers tend to close for holidays during that period. Having British products available will make it easier for dealers, specifiers and manufacturers.”
Yvonne Martin, MD of Equipt to Cook Ltd agreed, “It’s great that we’ve got a British company investing money in new products,” she said.
Iain Munro, MD of ScoMac Catering Equipment Ltd thought these features will make it a popular choice. “Most professional kitchens are looking for equipment with nice, smooth lines and something that’s easy to keep hygienic. The F900 and its Dynamic Linking System undoubtedly delivers that, it’s clearly going to be popular.”
The early signs are that Falcon has a hit on its hands, which is music to the ears of Tim Tindle, Falcon’s MD. “I’m biased but I’d say the launch has gone extremely well, everybody seems enthusiastic and we’ve got a great opportunity to take our business forward into new sectors.”
