Two six-shelf atmospheric steamers from Lincat are the first in a new line of products aimed primarily at the public sector.
Part of the Opus 700 range of heavy-duty cooking equipment, the high-volume steamers can accommodate 2 x 1/1 gastronorm containers per shelf, offering twice the capacity of the more common 1/1 steamers but at a similar price.
The gas-powered OG7502 is priced at £3,190 and the electric OE7503 at £2,990.
Steaming is popular in large education and healthcare kitchens, as the cooking process is least damaging to nutrients in the food and can cut costs through reduced shrinkage.
The new models generate steam internally to ensure the ovens remain fully saturated, and energy efficiency is addressed by the use of a two-point door-latch mechanism and an effective door seal.
All components and materials are Water Regulations Advisory Scheme-approved for quality and hygiene.
