Manitowoc Foodservice received three Kitchen Innovation Awards at the National Restaurant Association show in Chicago. The Frymaster Protector Fryer (gas version), the Garland Xpress Grill, and the Quest EMS Energy Management System created by Lincoln Foodservice Products were recognized by the NRA for keeping kitchens energy efficient, reducing cook times, achieving consistent quality, and reducing operating costs.
The Protector commercial fryer line reportedly maximizes oil life by up to four weeks with an Oil Attendant feature that automatically monitors frypot oil levels and replenishes as needed. The gas Protector earned an Energy Star rating of 56.4, near the top of its class among gas fryers.
Garland’s Xpress Grill features a dual-surface along with product recognition controls that reportedly adjusts cook times and temperature based on product thickness. Upper and lower grill plates cook both sides simultaneously, reducing cook times by 50%, the company says.
Lincoln Quest EMS Energy Management System optimizes the performance of a gas or electric powered burner focused to save 40% to 65% energy at idle conditions, according to the company.
