Lincat has launched a range of contact/panini grills as part of its new generation of Lynx 400 electric, countertop cooking equipment. Perfect for the rapid cooking of steaks, burgers, chicken fillets, toasted sandwiches and paninis, the new models offer fast heat up, excellent heat retention and precise thermostatic control. Their sleek, attractive styling makes them ideal for front of house operation.
There are six new contact/panini grills in total, with a choice of smooth, ribbed or combination (smooth lower and ribbed upper) cooking plates. Each is available as a compact, 2.25kW single head or a high capacity twin-head, 2 x 2.5kW unit. Hourly output of 225g 8oz steaks, medium cooked, range from 36 for the compact LCG, to 72 for the twin-head LCG2. Single units are priced at £343 and twin models are £510.
Lincat has also redesigned and updated its popular 3kW Lynx 400 GG1 contact grill, which can now be specified with either smooth, ribbed or combination cooking plates. Manufactured from cast aluminium, with mica elements, these provide extremely even heat and precise control, making them perfect even for delicate products such as omelettes. Coated with PFTE-based non-stick coating, they are easy to clean and a spatula is supplied as standard. Thanks to improvements in manufacturing efficiencies the new, enhanced GG1 contact grill is being introduced at the new, lower price of £659.
