Fancy a brew? Just push the button

EB3F-PBReady to dispense piping hot, filtered water at the push of a button, the Lincat popular EB3F water boiler is now also available with a safe, convenient push-button mechanism. Combined with striking good looks, the boiler is perfect for front-of-house and self-service operations.

FilterFlow automatic water boilers are among Lincat’s most popular products, not only for their versatility and efficiency, but also because of Lincat’s unique, built-in water filtration.

What’s the big deal about built-in filtration? Well firstly, you need to filter out impurities from tap water to create a better-tasting, “cleaner” hot drink, as well as removing any strange odours that can come from unfiltered water heated to a high temperature. Filtration also dramatically reduces the build-up of scale in the boiler, which means the unit lasts longer, works better, and can go for longer without repairs.

It’s easy to see why many caterers wouldn’t bother with filtered water, as most boilers require a separate, plumbed-in filtration unit, which needs to be professionally fitted, maintained and replaced. FilterFlow does away with all that – the low-cost cartridges are part of the boiler unit itself, and replacing one (about every six months) is as easy as changing a lightbulb.

The new push-button EB3F/PB produces up to 31 litres of premium-quality filtered water per hour. Like other FilterFlow models, the new boiler gives you precise control over the temperature of the water, while a diagnostic panels lets you know how the boiler is operating and when to change the filter.

Lincat launches Giga® Fast Oven

Lincat, the UK’s leading manufacturer of catering equipment, has launched the Giga® Fast Oven, a versatile, compact counter-top oven that can cook a fresh dough pizza in 90 seconds.

The secret to the speed lies within the unique airflow cylinders that intensely focus hot air to deliver exceptionally rapid cooking. The Giga® Fast Oven heats up to 400/450°C in as little as 10 minutes, and features an easy to use temperature control and cooking timer for consistent, repeatable results.

Designed to provide bars, pubs and restaurants with the ability to serve authentic Italian Pizza without having to invest in expensive specialist equipment or staff training, it delivers comparable results to a traditional wood-fired oven.

If pizza isn’t the only thing on the menu, the Giga® Fast Oven can also be quickly converted into a standard convection oven for the cooking of lasagne, croissants, cakes, pies, pastries, potatoes and oven chips, as well as for the toasting of all types of bread products.

Nick McDonald, Marketing Director of Lincat, said:

“The Giga® Fast Oven combines the performance of a dedicated wood-fired pizza oven with the versatility of a convection oven in a single, compact package. And since it operates from a standard 13amp plug it can be used anywhere.

“This will allow any outlet, even one that doesn’t already have a kitchen, to produce tasty, authentic pizzas without the need to invest in additional appliances, specialist staff or training. We think it will prove particularly popular with pubs looking for a cost-effective way to improve their food offering and supplement their wet sales.

He added…

“With the potential to produce up to 30 pizzas an hour, the Giga® Fast Oven will pay for itself in no time, and provide a fantastic long term return on your investment.”

Powerful, energy efficient and easy to use, the Giga® Fast Oven also features include switchable internal illumination, making it ideal for front-of-house use. Like all Lincat products, it is supplied with a two year onsite parts and labour warranty.

Lincat Ltd manufactures one of the world’s most comprehensive ranges of catering equipment. Products are sold in the UK and in over 50 countries worldwide through a comprehensive network of distributors. Lincat Ltd is a member company of the Middleby Corporation.

Tha Lincat Giga® Fast Oven is available from YCE Catering Equipment via their online busyCHEF webshop here and costs £1,188.00 plus VAT.
