Merrychef planar plume rapid cooking platforms offer a new level of speed and convenience.
The Merrychef eikon e2’s patented Planar Plume Airflow technology combines with microwave to achieve rapid cook times of up to 10x faster than traditional ovens. Planar Plume allows you to cook a wide range of fresh, chilled and frozen products in a fraction of the normal cooking time with excellent results, and by using very little energy compared to other platforms.

Garland Induction Griddle offers speed, consistency and resource savings.
The Garland Induction Griddle tackles all of the challenges typically associated with traditional griddles. It maintains consistent temperature across its surface, recovers its temperature rapidly and reaches maximum temperature in less than three minutes. The solution is found in Garland’s exclusive application of induction technology. Whereas other griddles rely on radiant heat to bring the griddle plate up to temperature, our induction causes the plate itself to heat up. Learn more.
Frymaster 1814 fryers cook a lot of food while conserving space, energy and oil.
The 1814 series of Large Vat fryers from Frymaster allows operations with large volumes of fried foods to lower operational costs through a trio of savings —oil, energy and space conservation. The 1814 fryer’s signature 18” x 14” frypot cooks three baskets of food. The compact battery design uses 11-14% less space and the 1814 Fryers use 12-16% less oil than standard 50-lb fryer systems. And don’t forget the 30-50% energy savings generated by a smaller footprint and less oil to heat. The easy-to-use SMART4U® controller has programmable cook buttons and features that make it easy to produce consistent, great-tasting food. Learn more.
