Latest electric models combine ultra-fast heat up times, good looks and ease of use
Falcon has launched an electric version of its F900 chargrill. Like the established F900 gas chargrills, the new units combine high performance and ease of use. They are also good looking and easy to clean – making them ideal for both back of house and front of house kitchens. Being electric they are ideal for sites that can’t, or prefer not to, use gas or solid fuel chargrills.
There are two F900 electric chargrills available – both can be supplied as counter top models or on fixed or mobile stands. The E9460 has a single element, with a rating of 8.4kW, and a cooking area of 450mm wide by 590mm. The E9490 has two elements, a rating of 13.44kW and a total cooking area of 730mm wide by 590mm. The E9490’s two elements are independently-controlled, so one can be switched off to save energy during quieter periods.
The Falcon models’ powerful performance means that, unlike gas models, they heat up very quickly so they only need to be turned on just before cooking is to be done. Food is cooked directly on the elements themselves, delivering the distinctive branding demanded from this method of cooking
The new chargrills also feature Falcon’s patented Dynamic Link System (DLS). This creates a virtually seamless link between F900 appliances, giving the flexibility of a modular system, with the good looks and hygiene benefits of a one-piece island suite – without the associated price tag.
Both F900 chargrills require a 32A three-phase supply. The E9460 measures 600mm wide by 900mm deep and 350mm high, while the E9490 is 900mm by 900mm by 350mm. With the stands the height for both models is 900mm.
List prices for the F900 electric chargrills start from £3,990. The F900 Series is available from dealers.
