Lincat have launched a collection of no fewer than 12 oven ranges as part of its new Opus 800 series of prime cooking equipment. Constructed on strong steel chassis, with heavy duty components, Opus 800 oven ranges are built to withstand the rigours of the busiest commercial kitchen.
There’s a wide range of options to choose from including: gas, electric or dual fuel; burners, plates or solid tops; side opening or drop down doors. Each new oven range combines a stylish, streamlined look with reliable UK engineering to deliver enhanced performance, output, energy efficiency and serviceability. And, for the first time, Lincat has introduced a powerful induction top range to the series.
The new induction hob top has 5kW induction zones, providing 270mm diameter induction cooking areas. Automatic pan detection function cuts power when no pan is present, preventing harm to users, while saving energy, and 6mm thick high impact resistant glass ceramic surface will withstand hard knocks and is easy to clean.
Opus 800 hob tops are available in gas or electric, and can be supplied as standalone boiling tops. With single heavy-duty cast iron pan supports, the gas models are equipped with powerful 7.5kW open burners with dual concentric rings, to provide focused heat distribution from a low simmer to a high heat, whatever the pan size. Electric models feature fully pressed and sealed hob tops to facilitate cleaning, and heavy-duty, square or round cast iron 2.6kW hotplates to deliver fast responsive heat.
The new Opus 800 oven ranges are equipped with large, powerful ovens, ranging from 6kW to 9.5kW, with the capacity to hold up to 6 x GN1/1. All are fan assisted, giving uniform heat and consistent cooking results, and each has a removable oven base for easy cleaning. Double insulated doors, side and back panels also allow for safe operation, efficiency and economy.
Although deeper (at 800mm) than the Opus 700 range it replaces, minimal extra space is required for Opus 800 equipment, as it sits flush to the wall with a recess for connection to gas and electricity supply. Products are also quick and easy to service, as there is no need to pull out of the line for maintenance, meaning disruption is kept to a minimum. Individual items of equipment provide service access through the front or top wherever possible. Castors are fitted as standard, so pulling units out for deeper cleaning is effortless.
