How MKN can help you to keep customers’ energy costs down

The energy crisis in the UK has put a new focus on kitchen running costs. Whatever catering sector your clients operate in, they’re looking for ways to minimise energy consumption and mitigate cost increases.

How can MKN help?

We believe manufacturers have a role to play in minimising energy use for operators. That’s why MKN is committed to continuously developing products that consume as little energy and water as possible, operating reliably and efficiently for many years.

Some of our innovative features to minimise energy use include:

  • – A host of features on the MKN FlexiCombi and SpaceCombi ranges, including WaveClean technology which enables a 36% reduction in water consumption compared with the previous version and closed tripled glazed door for 28% reduction in energy consumption compared to previous models with a double glazed door.
  • – FlexiCombi also includes a heat exchanger to ensure heat efficiency for greater energy savings, saving 1.1kW per hour with the 10-grid model.
  • – SpaceCombi models can be completely self-sufficient if used with the optional MagicHood odour neutralising hood, reducing the need for any additional ventilation system (subject to site conditions).
  • – Thanks to smart Smart Boiling technology, the MKN FlexiChef uses 2kWh to boil 75 litres of water in 20 minutes, compared to 7kWh for the water boiling phase in a conventional multifunctional appliance.
  • – Induction cooking in modular ranges such as Counter SL and Hotline, which reduces boiling time by 55% compared to hot plates, with additional energy saving helping to ensure 2.5 tons of CO2 reduction per year.

In addition, MKN is one of few manufacturers with the technology that enables its appliances to connect with and optimise in line with an energy optimisation interface, using the latest technology to reduce the peak demand of the kitchen in line with the Standard DIN 18875 Equipment for Commercial Kitchens – Interface for Power Optimization.
