(Vocus/PRWEB) 11 March 2011
Recently there has been a push from the Food Standards Agency to encourage caterers to promote healthier options for their customers. One of the ways recommended is to reduce the saturated fat content in menu items. Companies over the breadth of the catering industry, including pubs and restaurants, are now looking for economic ways to produce healthier meals.
FRIMA’s VarioCooking Center offers a new approach with a simple solution to this problem. The VarioCooking Center is a multipurpose cooking tool, combining a tilting pan, a kettle and a deep fat fryer, making a compact three-way system with an easy-to-use, computerised control system.
Its high-tech cooking combines the latest control technology and uniform heat distribution, reducing the amount of fat and oil needed when cooking by up to 80%. Whereas with standard pans more oil is needed to distribute temperature evenly, the VarioCooking Center ensures that the whole pan is heated to the same temperature without the need for excess oil. This makes FRIMA’s VarioCooking Center ideal for caterers wanting to produce food with a lower fat content, without changing the focus of their menu.
The VarioCooking Center uses an automatic system that monitors the cooking process to ensure that food isn’t burnt onto the pan. This means, for example, that the caterer can instruct the unit to cook a steak exactly as required – and be certain of the results.
FRIMA’s VarioBoost heating system is so fast that by using only a small amount of fat or oil the juices are immediately sealed in the steak, so the meat retains 20% more weight. The caterer can produce a perfect, healthier steak every time.
The heating system also improves egg dishes, such as omelette. Traditionally such dishes stick to the pan unless laced with fat and oil. With FRIMA’s heating system sticking is prevented and consistent browning is achieved with a minimal amount of fat. The uniform heat distribution ensures that the pan is maintained at the perfect temperature throughout to cook the dish. It prevents egg sticking to the pan, and keeps the omelette moist in the middle.
