Banqueting

Banqueting can be seen as a numbers game. Yet, irrespective of whether it’s one meal or a thousand, you need to deliver a number one result on the plate. To do so you need the peace of mind that only superior technology can provide – no matter the speed or stress of the task at hand.

Regeneration

It’s the motto of the scouts for a good reason. ‘Be prepared’ is the best way to go through life – and it’s as true in the kitchen as it is in the wilderness.

With superior regeneration technology you can control the quantities and time of service in a flexible, consistent manner with a carefully controlled process of regenerating from chilled or frozen. In the process you’ll avoid expensive over-production or loss of quality.

This quality is crucial to the modern kitchen. Food kept warm for too long deteriorates dramatically in appearance, taste and texture. Being able to prepare meals before they are required without losing any of the quality is a huge asset – and with the Convotherm 4 food can stay at it’s peak for up to three days without additional preservation.

It’s regeneration strength the Convotherm 4 can provide for kitchens of all sizes – even a small, one-unit operation can prepare large quantities within a very short time without any of the stress. The end result is ideal – hot meals of the highest quality delivered quickly and confidently.

Ideal for:

Hotels
For high volume production, short service times and consistent quality.
Schools, Colleges, Universities.
For speed of service, sustainable food delivery and menu variety.
Healthcare
For healthy menus, reliable quality and patient satisfaction.
