Smart cooking solutions, Rational and Frima hosted an intimate gathering of key buyers, key F&B professionals, chefs and members of the media at The Emirates Academy of Hospitality to showcase Frima’s VarioCooking Center.
Live cooking demonstrations of the VarioCooking Center, which was launched at this year’s Gulfood highlighted the smart-technology of the cooker by demonstrating its flexibility through different functions, including boiling, searing and deep-frying.
The VarioCooking Center comprises of two pans to offer maximum flexibility and comes with a total capacity of 50 litres, providing a sufficient frying surface and boiling capacity. The height of the pan base also facilitates long frying processes compared to similar large or larger tilting pans or mulifunctional appliances.
Speaking exclusively to Hotel News ME, Nicolas Makowski, international sales director, Frima International said: “The VarioCooking Center is essentially the world’s fastest cooker, through being able to integrate previously complex processes chefs can now incorporate boiling, baking and frying all in one place.
“The new 112L model is catering to an under represented market. The VarioCooking Center is ideal for anyone needing the flexibility but who has limited space, whilst also needing to produce larger quantities during peak times. Like all appliances in the current series, the VarioCooking Center 112L achieves maximum energy savings of up to 40% compared to other conventional cooking appliances. It is also up to four times faster, so whilst the pasta is boiling in one pan, steaks are frying in the other. The overnight cooking functional creates additional capacity as it allows you to cook your roast or make a stock without supervision. The integrated cooking intelligence provides for perfect cooking results: Pasta is automatically drained from the water at the end of its cycle and the unit will notify the cook the when pan fried foods need turning. It also regulates the temperature to the precise second so that liquids can never boil-over or burn.”
