Old fashioned Salamander grills often waste energy, but the new Charvet version has energy saving features which make it ideal for all-day use, often the case in care homes.

There are also two independent cooking areas, so one can be switched off during slack...

If you are looking for a new gas range, look out for the use of refractory cement around the heating elements. The cement withstands high temperatures and prevents the escape of heat, ‘focussing’ or directing the burner output onto the hotplate above and thus minimising energy wastage. The cement blocks are heavy, need extra engineering to keep them in place and are a cost that many of our competitors do not bear. But their use means energy saved! Charvet can use smaller rated gas burners but still achieve a similar heat output to some...

There is no doubting the sheer power that comes with Charvet pasta cookers. At 11 kW for the electric and 13.5 kW for gas they have plenty of ‘grunt’ to suit the busiest of sites, but they are also very controllable thanks to a digital thermostat which also makes the Pasta Cooker ideal for other tasks such as sous vide poaching and slow-poached eggs. (For hygiene and ease of removal cook the eggs in a ziplock-style bag and attach the bag to the side of the bath with a clip or simply by resting the lid on top of the bag.) Cooking water is...
