The patented DHMC (that's digital heat and moisture control) hot food storage and serving cabinets being launched by Porkka are said to keep food hot for longer than conventional cabinets without degrading its texture, flavour, appearance or nutritional value. This allows caterers to pre-prepare larger quantities of food.
To overcome the traditional problem of food drying out, the new cabinets employ precision-engineered circulation of moisture and heat to eliminate hot and cold spots and so minimise the diffusion of water molecules from moist food to drier areas.
Efficient circulation combined with effective insulation and premium-grade door seals also allow a fast recovery after doors have been opened.
Power consumption at operating temperature is just 0.18kWh (compared with 1.5kWh for conventional cabinets) and the 1,660mm-wide cabinets can hold up to 28 gastronorm 1/1 65mm containers, twice the capacity of traditional models.
Available in a wide range of sizes and modular configurations, the DHMC cabinets comply with EU food hygiene rules, offer full HACCP facilities, and are compatible with Porkka's XWEB HACCP system, which allows caterers to monitor, control and adjust operation via a local PC network, the internet or a mobile phone.
