Catering students at Riverside College have had the opportunity to work with state of the art cooking technology as part of a field trial for new Burco Titan Induction Range, manufactured by college partner Glen Dimplex Professional Appliances.
Having recently launched a new, state-of-the-art Titan induction range cooker, Glen Dimplex felt the catering students would be able to put the equipment through its paces by using the ovens during lessons and to prepare food for the busy Scholars Restaurant at the college, which serves over 100 dishes daily.
Stephen Parkinson, Programme Area Leader for Catering and Hospitality, commented “We are delighted with the new additions to our catering facilities. The induction range cookers will help to ensure our students leave us with experience of the latest industry facilities.”
Paul Taylor, Product Engineering Manager at Glen Dimplex Professional Appliances added “The launch of the Titan Induction Range represents the successful outcome to a project that has taken several years.
Taking our expertise in manufacturing and the results of a comprehensive industry study, we wanted to develop an appliance that was able to combine the latest in energy efficient cooking technology, with a robust, versatile design at a price that would be affordable for most. We are delighted to have partnered with Riverside College, which has become one of the first kitchens in the country to use a Titan Induction Range Cooker. What’s more, by providing the catering students with the latest cooking technology, we hope to be encouraging and supporting many of the future stars of the industry.”
Glen Dimplex Professional Appliances is a leader in the manufacture of professional water boiling and cooking appliances under the Burco brand and refrigeration equipment under the renowned Lec Commercial trademark.
The induction range cookers are a welcome addition to the college catering facilities and offer an industry standard learning environment for students to experience. Induction cooking differs by heating with magnetic induction instead of a flame or electrical heating element. This allows rapid increases in temperature while providing outstanding energy efficiency by virtually eliminating wasted heat.
