Leading manufacturer of temperature-controlled, portable catering equipment, TempStations, continues to lead the industry with its new launch of an innovative action station system to approximately 2,000 attendees at this year’s American Culinary Federation (ACF) National Convention, held at the Anaheim Marriott, Anaheim, Calif., Aug. 2-5. The revolutionary technology, CoolStation, will be unveiled at booth #EA-3 during ACF’s annual trade show at the Anaheim Convention Center, Aug. 3-4.
“TempStations recognized the need for a cooled-controlled buffet station,” states Chef John Warren, VP of Product Development, TempStations. “We are proud to have created one of the most advanced portable action station systems in the industry.”
Due to modern day technology, the CoolStation serves as a portable action station, for use of caterers, chefs, franchisees and food service managers. The server system reduces risk of time and temperature neglect while improving food cost through reduced waste. Utilizing the science of fresh preservation, the safe-cooled buffet station is fully equipped to lock in moisture and freshness of perishables. The recirculation of an FDA approved Thermal Solution, connects cooling lines to maintain a safe and steady holding temperature for food. With craftsmanship, innovation and design in mind, the action station maintains safe food holding temperatures for deli, vegetable, fruit displays and sushi creations.
Available interior dimensions include rectangular; 40"L x 20" W x 1.5" H and square; 20"L x 20" W x 1.5" H. With advanced technology, the system can remain within cool temperatures for up to one hour in duration. Also available are CoolStation bowls, 20”W x 20 ¾”L x 9”H, holding up to two gallons of weight, most suitable for salads.
TempStations will also showcase “Frostation,” a portable ice cream mix-in station used by caterers, hotels and more as a profitable alternative to traditional dessert stations. The system is completely portable allowing creations of made-to-order dessert delights anywhere. Available interior dimensions for the mix-in tray is 48”L x 14 3/8”W x 5/8”H and the holding unit is 19 1/4”L x 13 1/2”W x 8 1/4”H.
