Welbilt is delighted to announce that it will be exhibiting at the prestigious new GulfHost show taking place this September at the Dubai World Trade Centre. This is the first time that Welbilt will be exhibiting in the Middle East as a standalone foodservice company and highlights the dedication and focus on this key region for the business.
To mark this event, GulfHost will be home to the regional launch of Welbilt’s NEW Xpress Grill – the latest innovation from its Garland brand. Representing the next generation in two sided cooking, visitors to the stand (S1-A10) will be able to experience first-hand the superior design and functionality of the new grill. Featuring upper and lower grill plates which are able to cook both sides of the food simultaneously – all with the simple press of a button – cook times are reduced by up to 50% compared to conventional flat grills.
What’s more, the Garland Xpress Grill is complete with advanced temperature controls utilising ‘smart anticipation’ to ensure that food is always cooked to the appropriate core temperature each time. In addition to this the Xpress Grill boasts energy efficiency increases of up to 20% compared to previous models thanks to each grill lane being independently operated at its own unique set temperature, meaning that operators can achieve the ultimate in menu flexibility whilst also being able to switch off the grill lanes that are not in use for further energy savings.
There will also be a dedicated area on stand where our development chefs will be hosting live cooking demonstrations on Welbilt’s renowned Convotherm, Merrychef and Garland brands, to name a few. When visiting the stand, foodservice professionals will have the perfect opportunity to gain a detailed insight into the wide variety of cooking solutions Welbilt can offer operators within the industry.
As segments in the foodservice sector continue to rapidly grow, such as the convenience store, food-to-go and coffee shop markets, visitors will find the Merrychef eikon e2s of particular interest thanks to its ability to cook food up to 20 times faster than a conventional oven. This is achieved by utilising a combination of three heat technologies to ensure high quality, fast food. This speed, coupled by the compact footprint and largest cavity to footprint ratio in the high-speed ovens market, the Merrychef eikon e2s is the ideal solution for establishments with limited space looking to provide a varied menu.

Manufactured with world-class technology and unrivalled aesthetic design the Convotherm 4 offers the very best in multi-functionality, With the ability to grill, bake, steam, fry and even smoke food, providing the ultimate menu flexibility. Thanks to its multi-functionality, the Convotherm 4 can lower operating costs too by using its Advanced Closed System+ (ACS+).
