Innovative ‘Cook, Hold and Deliver’ solution allows operators to provide freshly cooked takeaway items in just a few simple steps

Welbilt UK has once again brought innovation to the table with the launch of a brand-new ‘Cook, Hold and Deliver’ solution.

The package, which consists of a Garland powered by Inducs® INSTINCT Hob, rechargeable multi-layer plate and compatible delivery bag, allows operators to cook, hold and deliver hot, freshly cooked takeaway items in just a few simple steps:

  • Place the delivery bag (with the Multi-Layer plate in its pocket) on the INSTINCT Hob
  • Switch the Hob on and turn the knob to level 10
  • Tap the operation knob twice to activate the timer and set to 1 minute
  • Once the minute is up, remove the delivery bag (with the Multi-Layer plate in its pocket) which will now be sufficiently charged to keep food items hot for up to 50 minutes.

To put this efficient level of heat retention into perspective, Welbilt carried out a test to directly compare a standard insulated delivery bag with a delivery bag charged on a Garland powered by Inducs® INSTINCT hob. The test showed that with the standard delivery bag, food items which were cooked and placed into the bag at 75C (measured on top of the box) dropped to temperatures as low as 30C in just 35minutes. By contrast, the delivery bag charged on a Garland powered by Inducs® INSTINCT hob sustained food items at temperatures between 60C and 65C meaning operators can feel confident that their food items will be delivered in perfect condition with this new solution.

Taste and texture

“One of the key factors that operators must consider when it comes to ensuring customer satisfaction with takeaway food orders is how hot the food items will be when reaching the customer; after all, low temperatures not only affect the taste and texture of foods, but also present food safety risks due to increased risk of bacteria growth,” says Steve Hemsil, sales director – UK & Ireland, Welbilt.

“With our Garland powered by Inducs® delivery solution, caterers can be confident that hot food items will retain safe and desirable food temperatures considerably longer than a standard insulated bag.  Ticking a box from a flexibility point of view, the Garland powered by Inducs® INSTINCT hob can also be used to cook popular takeaway items too, from curries to stir fries, right through to pancakes and pasta.”
