Panther hotcupboards – can we break them?

When we looked at redesigning our range of Panther hotcupboards one of the main obectives was to make them as robust as possible. We know the kind of environments they are used in, from hospitals and care homes, to schools and large restaurants. This means they need to withstand being moved from the kitchen to the service area fully loaded with food and plates, sometimes being taken outside across car parks and other rough surfaces.

So with this in mind we thought we would have a bit of fun ourselves and put one of our 800 Series hotcupboards to the test in the car park at Head Office. Speed bumps included!

Good news for tea lovers

Great news for tea lovers everywhere – we’ve recently improved the performance of our Lincat FilterFlow automatic water boilers, which produce great tasting filtered water to make perfect tea. We’ve done so by extending the life of their in-built filter cartridges by 33%.

This means that the new FilterFlow cartridges will need to be changed every 4000 litres instead of every 3000, or every six months, whichever is reached first. This will reduce operating costs for users with no additional outlay, since the new improved filters are being supplied at the same price as those they replace.

As more outlets realise that a good hot drinks offer will drive food sales, we’re pleased to have been able to find a way to improve FilterFlow’s performance at no additional cost to our customers.
