Fagor Professional maximises potential with iKold Generation launch

For more than 60 years, Fagor Professional has been leading the charge by manufacturing an extensive portfolio of top-quality catering equipment. Now, in a move that aligns manufacturing innovation with the very latest energy-efficient technology, the company is proud to unveil the iKold generation of commercial refrigeration.

Designed with the kitchen professional in mind, the extensive range includes upright cabinets, refrigerated and preparation counters, display cabinets, and ice makers. Guaranteeing optimal food preservation at the best value price-point, the iKold generation units utilise natural R290 and R600a hydrocarbon refrigerant combined with CFC-free, high-density water-based polyurethane insulation to achieve outstanding energy savings of up to 45%. The units are so efficient, that several of them have achieved a top-rated Class-A certification on the industry-recognised ETL list.

Intended to operate in the challenging, hot and humid conditions of a professional kitchen, the iKold Generation has been independently tested to withstand the daily rigours of the kitchen whilst maintaining an even temperature within the unit. In doing so, the range has been awarded a maximum climate class 5 rating in independent testing. Innovative technology including Multiflow, an optimal air circulation system that guarantees a balanced and consistent flow of air helps to maintain a uniform temperature and preserve food for longer.

Renowned for manufacturing a wide range of professional catering equipment, operators will be pleased to know the iKold models have been designed to perfectly integrate with an existing Fagor Professional setup including cooking blocks, ovens, blast chillers and even warewashers. Ideal for many kitchen setups, the units are available in two ranges – ADVANCE and CONCEPT. Despite being entry-level units, the ADVANCE range is designed to offer a more efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable product for the professional kitchen. Alternatively, for those operators looking for one of the widest product portfolios on the market, the CONCEPT series adapts to suit the individual needs of the chef and features a robust, ergonomic and highly functional design.

Functionality and ease of use are also guaranteed with the iKold Generation. Featuring efficient LED lighting strategically located on a strip down the entire side of the chamber, the operator can clearly see the contents, minimising the need to keep the door open for longer. Simultaneously, the iKold range features electronic evaporator fans that not only consume less energy but also prevent heat generation within the chamber itself. Externally, a choice of swivel castors or legs, including marine-compliant variants, full-length ergonomic handles, easy-to-operate, intuitive controls and accessible door pedals all aid functionality in a busy kitchen environment.>
