Here’s what the industry’s top chefs, food specialists and CEOs say about our professional cooking range and how it is improving their daily operations.
Will Stratton-Morris, CEO
Product : NE-SCV2 Speed Convection Oven
"As a premium coffee house brand, launching our new deli kitchen food menu was about offering our customers food as good as our coffee and which matched the unique environment our stores provide. It was essential we didn’t compromise on the quality of the food we served, and that meant finding the right oven to prepare the food but which critically also matched the aesthetic of our coffee houses.
The Panasonic SCV2 Speed Convection Oven jumped out as the ideal solution. The Panasonic team understood our needs and invested time with our food development team and supported them through the creation of the new hot food menu. They helped us to achieve the best results from the oven and brought to life benefits it offered which also allowed us to develop items that we couldn’t previously offer."
Glenn Evans, Head of Food
Product : NE-1878BPQ Pro Inverter Microwave
"We’re always looking at ways to reduce complexity in the kitchen and achieve more consistency, but never at the cost of the quality of the food, and reducing our carbon footprint is always on the agenda.“
“The NE-1878 has proven to be 10% more energy efficient compared to the standard model we used to buy - the all-metal door has been a real bonus; when it comes to cleaning, it is much lighter, so easier for chefs to clean under and around and the door itself is easier to clean inside and out with not having any grooves or film.
The NE-1878 also doesn’t look like a microwave so there is less of a chance of a negative consumer perception."
Royal Garden Hotel
Steve Munkley, Former Executive Chef
Product : SR-GA721 Rice Cooker
"I believe that the Panasonic rice cooker can certainly deliver consistency when cooking rice and it is definitely an advantage being able to turn it on and leave it, with no concerns of over-cooking. It can also hold a decent volume of rice too so would be great for operators that don’t necessarily have steamer ovens."
Café Spice Namaste
Cyrus Todiwala OBE DL, Chef Patron
Product : SR-GA721 Rice Cooker
"The rice cooker has enabled us to prepare different kinds of pulao rice, not just steamed, for our events without the need to cook and re-heat. We’ve achieved better portion control and as it’s fully automatic, the chefs have peace of mind it will cook to perfection and they don’t have to be constantly watchful over it. Once cooked, it will hold rice hot at the correct temperature for two hours."
