Educatering – Energy Saving

Street food and ‘pop-ups’ are the latest trends to find their way from the high street into foodservice, including schools, and this has really put the onus on manufacturers of catering equipment to come up with portable ‘plug & play’ products that cook very quickly and yet require nothing more than a 13amp socket to function. As a consequence, tabletop induction units are proving to be a very popular choice.

Many caterers, including those at schools, are looking to replicate the food concepts that are popular on the high street – the current favourites being Italian, Asian, American. However, most of them are only looking to offer this as an option on certain days, in order to vary the menu, and don’t want the cooking equipment permanently in-situ, so this means it needs to be portable, lightweight and capable of operating from a standard 13amp plug. This is why manufacturers such as Adventys, which Grande Cuisine represents here in the UK, have put so much research and development into creating induction products – such as Adventys’s BRIC3000 – that can bring heat/power to the pan/product as quickly as possible, from a 13amp plug.
