The growth of "on-the-go" service from food courts and kiosks is making new demands on the good old hot cupboard by encouraging more compact sizes and less institutional styling. France's Bourgeat has taken these needs on board with its latest Satellite cupboards which range from six to 17 levels, including versions small enough to squeeze into tight under-counter or back-bar spaces.
Equally notable is the ability to switch cupboards from heated to cold storage by turning off the heat and putting in a prefrozen eutectic block. Built-in ventilation keeps the required temperature balanced throughout the cabinet while an on-board three-litre water reservoir guards against food drying out. All cupboards are based on the gastronorm 1/1 module, with prices ranging from £1,846 for a GN 6 unit to £2,480 for GN 17 - for humidification facilities add a further £400. A similarly sized range of banquet trolleys has also been introduced.
