A day out with Paul Hickman

As full combi training is included when you purchase a new Opus SelfCooking Center from Lincat, I recently had the opportunity of accompanying our development chef Paul Hickman on an end user Opus SelfCooking Center training day at Martin Mere Wetland Centre, in Burscough, Lancashire.

The Wetland Centre is currently creating a new kitchen and dining area for visitors to the centre. Their kitchen comprises an OSC61 Opus SelfCooking Center and from our Opus 700 series, 2 x OG7002 six burner range ovens, an OE7113/F catering fryer and an OG7301 salamander grill. They also have 2 x IC3 insect control units. (more…)

Silverlink 600 – new, improved design …

We do everything we can here at Lincat to ensure that our equipment is easy to service or repair.

That’s why we’ve recently redesigned the element hinging mechanism on our Silverlink 600 electric commercial fryers, chargrills and pasta boilers, to enable their thermostats to be replaced, should the need arise, in under ten minutes.

Our products are of course built to last, and have an enviable track record of providing many years of faultless service. But if the thermostat does need to be replaced, the changes we’ve made will enable this to be done quickly and easily.

The new, improved design relates to the 13 electric counter top and floor-standing fryers in our Silverlink 600 range. It also applies to the two electric chargrills and two pasta boilers. These new models are offered at the same price as their predecessors.

For smaller outlets, we recommend our Lynx 400 range of counter-top catering equipment as the perfect solution during these tough financial times.

Lincat Equipment – cheaper today than in 1972

Not that we’re hoarders or anything, but I came across a 1972 price list the other day.  Lincat was founded in 1971 so this must be the earliest piece of sales literature still in existence.  Nothing like today’s 48-page, full-colour masterpiece, it was a simple 2?sided photocopy (probably “photostat” back then) of a typed list.
