Lincat fryers save the day!

It was incredibly exciting to see our products put through their paces by one of the UK’s finest chefs in the final of BBC cooking competition Great British Menu, which aired on Friday 8th June. The finalists were chosen to cook an Olympic Banquet hosted by British rowing legend Sir Steve Redgrave at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, for a guest list which included Dame Kelly Holmes, Jonathan Edwards, Sir Matthew Pinsent and Steve Backley.

However, when the floorstanding gas fryers provided were failing to reach and maintain the required oil temperature to deep fry the main components of Daniel Clifford’s dish; he was faced with a serious problem.

After a few frantic phonecalls, Daniel was able to procure three Lincat Silverlink DF66 counter top fryers in the nick of time, which enabled him to cook the food to perfection and deliver a successful main course.

Our products are built to provide enduring reliability and high performance, and it was great to see them rise to the challenge for such a prestigious event.

    Best wishes, Alex.
