The oven range is one of the most versatile pieces of equipment in a commercial kitchen, with the ability to fry, grill, broil, saute, boil, braise, simmer, warm and even bake! Whether you are opening a new restaurant and are considering the purchase of an oven range, or looking to replace the one you currently have, the Busychef team will walk you through their restaurant range of the month, and give you the reasons why they chose the Lincat OG7001 and OG7002.
Lincat re-designed the two Opus 700 gas oven ranges in 2010, the four burner OG7001 and six burner OG7002, but even 6 years ago their vision was forward thinking. The new models featured more powerful hob burners, stronger construction and easier to clean stainless steel radiused hob fronts. These important features have proved to be winners in design and practicality.
The hob burners deliver a higher power rating of 6.1 kW for natural gas and 5.7 kW for propane. This performance places them at the top of their class in terms of burner power, and enables them to deliver true high speed cooking. They can, nevertheless, be accurately controlled to ensure excellent results even at low temperatures.
The models feature powerful 6.8kW (OG7001) and 9kW (OG7002) ovens, which deliver precise thermostatic control from 120oC to 280oC. With double insulated doors, side and back panels, they offer safe operation, efficiency and economy.
Like all Lincat products, the new ranges are designed to be easy to clean, with removable floor plates and shelf supports; dished hob tops; vitreous enamelled oven liners and robust matt-enamelled cast iron pan supports.
Side opening doors ensure safe easy access, whilst four shelf positions offer greater versatility. A low level flue enables the entire hob top to be used and, if the ranges are to be installed with other items of Opus 700 equipment, an optional flue extension can be specified to achieve a uniform appearance.
In addition to the four and six burner gas ranges, the heavy-duty Opus 700 series includes six other oven ranges with solid top gas models, as well as electric and dual fuel options. The Opus 700 series also includes: fryers, chargrills, griddles and grills as well as pasta boilers and atmospheric steamers.
