Electrolux Professional Launches All-new Upgrade for SpeeDelight

Five years on from its original launch, Electrolux Professional has unveiled a new and improved version of its popular SpeeDelight high-speed cooking solution.

Launched in 2017, SpeeDelight is an all-in-one solution for the preparation of hot snacks such as sandwiches, roll-ups, tacos and pizzas. The combination of contact plates, infrared radiation and microwave technology into a singular compact footprint allows ‘grab and go’ meals to be prepared up to three times quicker than traditional panini presses and toasted sandwich machines.

Now, the appliance has been updated with a host of new features to help improve user experience, based on operator feedback collated in the years since its launch.

Stuart Flint, Training & Demonstration Manager at Electrolux Professional, said: “Customer feedback is an incredibly important part of our R&D process. Listening to comments from operators has allowed us to double down on the traits that make SpeeDelight so unique, including cooking times, ease-of-use and consistency. As such, customers will now be able to benefit from even better results than ever before.”

SpeeDelight will now offer cooking cycles for both burgers and club sandwiches, in order to provide a truly comprehensive menu of hot snacks. The introduction of a new non-stick tray will also enable uniform heat distribution for even cooking, which can be effectively cleaned through the use of water alone.

Moreover, customers can now access recipe management through OnE Connected, allowing for greater consistency across the fleet and a reduction in food waste.

The upgrade has also integrated a number of operational improvements to the appliance, including the removal of a choke cover on the lid, a brighter display, a 10°C increase in bottom plate temperature (230C°), and a shorter timer before entering standby mode.

Since its launch, the upgraded SpeeDelight has already been adopted by a number of major chains including Caffenio and Autogrill.

The new model is on display at Electrolux Professional’s Center of Excellence in Luton, where visitors can book in to experience a hands-on demo alongside the company’s full range of foodservice and laundry solutions.

Stuart concluded: “As a one-stop-shop for the preparation of hot snacks, SpeeDelight is a core product in our commercial foodservice offering. We strongly advise anyone who’s in the market for a comprehensive cooking solution to undertake a demo at our Center of Excellence, as experiencing our products in person is the best way to see what they’re really capable of.”
