Lincat has eliminated the need for lava rock from its Opus 700 and Silverlink 600 chargrills. In its place are specially designed heat transfer radiants, which, the company says, are more controllable and consistent than lava rock, yet still ignite sufficient fat for optimum flaring to give a distinctive chargrilled taste.
Branding grids provide the characteristic "branding" effect and these can be removed at the end of the cooking session, together with the radiants, fat collection tray and splashguard.
There are four gas-powered chargrills to choose from. The Silverlink 600 CG4 (450mm wide) and CG6 (600mm wide) chargrills incorporate independently controlled twin cooking areas, providing economic use of energy during quieter periods.
They are priced at £1,005 for the CG4 and £1,332 for the CG6.
The heavy-duty Opus 700 range includes the 20kW OG7401 (700mm wide) at £2,175 and the 900mm wide OG7402, which offers a 25kW output and is priced at £2,695. All four can be operated by propane or natural gas.
There is also an electric chargrill in the Silverlink 600 range, the 8kW ECG6, at £937. This incorporates a water bath which, in addition to providing an additional safety feature, helps to keep food moist and succulent.
