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.

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…)
