Equipment Solution

Using flexible gas appliance connectors improves sanitation and safety

Equipment can be easily moved and cleaned on a regular basis–reducing dirt and grease build-up. That means improved cleanliness and reduced fire hazards. In most traditional installations, there are 6-9" of dead space behind stoves and grills. That space is blocked from cleaning and can fill with debris and grease, causing unpleasant odors and attracting insects and rodents. Increases aisle work space and decreases the space needed behind equipment. Easier movement makes servicing and cleaning easy.

Mashups are going to be very hot in 2014. Combining donuts and croissants, dessert with pizza or vegetables, casual dining on one side and upscale dining on the other are all examples of the concept of combining two great ideas into one exceptional concept.

How about doing a marketing mash-up?

Let’s combine two huge trends. First, consumers in 2014 are more interested in what they are eating and where it comes from. Ingredients, calories and in some cases if the product is locally sourced are just a few examples of the information patrons crave. Another trend getting hotter and hotter is increased technology in restaurants. Your patrons love to have information at their fingertips.

Utilize QR codes on your menu to give your customers a way to utilize their phone or ipad to learn about your menu items. Interactive menus are a great way to show your customers you are in front of the trends and aware of their needs at the same time. See below for a few examples of things you could do with this marketing concept.

Indigo™ Ice Machines

State-of-the-art diagnostics provide constant and reliable monitoring of refrigeration systems. In turn, that information is used to improve energy management, set proper ice production levels, streamline cleaning processes, ease food safety concerns, maintain ice quality and quickly display up-to-date service information. Several models are ENERGY STAR® qualified. Model IY0504A shown on B570 bin. B-style bins (sold separately) feature DuraTech™ stainless finish exterior.

NEO™ Ice Machine

Daily Specials: Customers may forget what their server has told them or miss part of what was said. A link to daily specials page would allow your customers to go back and review them after they have looked at the entire menu.

Ingredient / Allergy Information: Show your customers you care about their welfare. Make it easy for your diners to avoid dishes that may be harmful to them by listing ingredients. You could even have a list of common allergies and the dishes that contain those ingredients. Meal Recommendations: A link to the chef’s favorite dishes with an explanation of why they’re his favorites would be very helpful for people deciding what to order. You could also include customer reviews of certain menu items.

Children’s Menus: Engage children. A QR code linking to a fun page with stories, facts, riddles and games would be fun for kids. In many cases, parents may choose your restaurant over another just for the effort you put in to their children’s dining experience. Not to mention, it will make children more patient as parents relax and enjoy their dining experience.

The NEO™ provides a new level of performance, intelligence and convenience. Depending on model, it can deliver up to 40 lbs. more ice over a 24-hour period as previous models but keeps the same compact footprint. Saves at least 10% on energy consumption and a minimum of 25% on water usage. ENERGY STAR®. Model UD0140A shown.

Six Popular Reasons for Ventless Cooking

Historic buildings prohibit traditional ducted hoods and/or roof top fans.

Extensive duct-work for traditional hoods may be cost prohibitive in high-rise buildings, stadiums and arenas.

Many building designs such as malls, food courts, airports, etc., do not lend themselves to traditional hood installations.

Learn more about ventless cooking in this video

Ventless Fryers, Griddles & Cooktops

Create a line up of electric cooking equipment without the need for extensive ventilation. Install kitchens in facilities where extensive ductwork and rooftop fans are not practical, are prohibited or are too expensive. These hoods give you the flexibility to easily set up a wide range of electric equipment such as ovens, deep fat fryers, ranges, griddles, hot plates, rethermalizers, woks, steamers, combi-ovens, induction and more. Air filtration and fire suppression systems are included and are completely self-contained. Safe and agency approved. Model WVU-96 shown.

Since Ventless Hoods are a portable asset, they are a perfect solution for leased spaces.

A Ventless kitchen can fit into very small spaces. When no hood space is available, it creates added capacity and/or makes menu expansion possible. Source: Wells

Replacing Your Ice Machine

Step 1: Gather information on the existing product. Get the brand and the model number for the modular unit and the bin. Note if the unit is air-cooled, water-cooled or remote air-cooled. If it is remote air cooled, you will have to find the remote condenser and get its model number as well. Take a look at the line routing – its length and tubing size. Note the refrigerant type.


Step 2: Ask Questions: Did the machine make enough ice? Did it put out too much heat? Was it too loud? Are you planning to expand? Was the bin big enough? What is the electrical capacity available? Would two machines be better than one, with a smaller one in an under the counter spot closer to where the ice is used? Changing to remote system? Where will the condenser go? Do you have water filters?

LG Series Griddles

Perfect for foodservice operations of any size or volume, these griddles make cooking fast and efficient! Available in gas or electric with solid state or thermostatic controls. Choose stainless or chrome plates. Chrome plate models will cut your cleaning time nearly in half and will save as much as 30% in utility savings per year. Model 124T shown.

Step 3: Answer the condenser question — Which one is ideal for your operation? A water-cooled model is quiet, easy to install and does not emit excess heat into the room. The trade off is the cost of the water. In many areas, water-cooled machines are not even allowed, so check with the local authorities. Self-contained air-cooled machines are the easiest and cheapest to install; however, they make the most noise and exhaust heat into the surrounding air. Remote air-cooled models have a low noise advantage over water-cooled and use no more water than a self-contained air-cooled, but they are expensive to install. There is a new style of remote ice machine available from a few manufacturers. This machine removes the compressor and condenser to a remote location, leaving only the ice making section inside your building. The loudest components of an ice machine are the compressor and, if air-cooled, the fan motor and blade. Because the compressor is remote from the ice making section, this type of machine makes the least noise. Note: Installation on this type of unit is more complex and a separate electrical supply is required to operate the compressor. There are limits to how far away the compressor section can be from the ice making section.


CPE Series Combi Ovens

All models are equipped with the intuitive touch display SmartTouch® that makes programming easy. The automatic cleaning system CombiWash® saves you precious time and with a USB key you can always put the oven in your pocket and upload recipes to any Visual Cooking oven. Features include memory of 500 recipes (15 steps), cookbook with preset recipes, preheating, reversible fan with 9 adjustable steps, manual and automatic humidity pulsing and cooling. Comes standard with RackTimer®, HACCP quality control and automatic service diagnostic system. Model CPE2.06 shown.

Step 4: Size the machine correctly for the use. Many ice machines are too small for the application. If an ice machine runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without shutting off, it is too small. Not only is it wearing out prematurely, it does not give the user any ice making margin – they will occasionally have to buy ice. Do not specify a bin that is too small, because it cannot hold the amount of ice needed. Small bins may also be too low for ease of use. Having a bin that is too large can also be a problem, as ice that is not used tends to melt together and then is hard to remove from the bin (a little cold water poured on it helps to loosen it up). Remember: When specifying a combination of ice machine and bin or dispenser, be sure that all the necessary adapter kits are on the list.

Prodigy® Modular Cube Ice Machines

Use less energy and water, these cubers exceed federal energy efficiency regulations by up to 22%. Features AutoAlert™ indicator lights for easy maintenance. Patented WaterSense adaptive purge control reduces scale buildup by detecting hard water conditions and purging mineral laden water. Stainless steel finish. Produce small or medium cube ice. Several models ENERGY STAR® approved. Bins sold separately. Model C0530 shown on B5305 bin.

Step 5: What is the desired ice form? Flaked, Nugget, or Cube? Flaked ice is best for packing food like fish or chicken – many supermarkets use it for displays. Nugget ice is good for that, but also makes a decent beverage ice. Cubed ice is universal, good for almost every application. ICE SIZING GUIDELINES: Fast Food: 9 lb. per customer or 7.5 lb. per seat, 2 oz. per 8-10 oz. drink, 4 oz. per 12-16 oz. drink, 6 oz. per 20 oz. drink, 8 oz. per 32 oz. drink Full Service: 5 lb. per seat or 1.7 lb. per patron Bars: 3 lb. per customer Supermarkets: 35 lb. per cubic foot Healthcare: 7 lb. per bed, 2 lb. per employee Hotels: 3 lb. per room - More for ice chests C-Stores: Customer self-serve 4 oz. per 12 oz. drink, 7 oz. per 20 oz. drink, 10 oz, per 32 oz. drink, cold plate - Add 50% more
