Samsung commercial microwaves have school meals served up

Microwave range provides ideal solution for Government School Meal Pledge

School kitchens are notoriously tight on space and are soon to be put under further strain with the Government’s current pledge to extend hot free school meals to every child in reception, year 1 and year 2.

Many schools will find it difficult to accommodate extra equipment in order to meet the growing demand for meals, therefore it is important to look at equipment that is space-saving, efficient and versatile.

Microwaves offer a flexible and fast option not just for reheating and regenerating cooked food but also for cooking and steaming foods. Steaming in a microwave cooks vegetables more quickly, which means they retain more nutrients, compared to conventional boiling methods.

Samsung Professional Appliances’ choice of commercial microwave ovens spans large-capacity, 'super-heavy duty' 1850W units down to light-commercial, budget-priced 1100W models.  All run from a 13 amp supply.

Because their oven space is 35% larger than other compact commercial microwave ovens, Samsung’s ‘oversize compact’ models offer big benefits to school caterers.  Despite their small footprint (464mm wide x 557mm deep), which is suitable for kitchens and counters, they can accommodate containers as big as 2/3 gastronorm, making them ideal for cooking or reheating multiple portions and fitting into limited kitchen space.

Samsung’s microwaves are easy to operate, cook fast and are energy efficient, making them a reliable workhorse for any school catering facility. Keeping a six burner on for hours is bad on all sorts of fronts – energy, kitchen environment, over working the ventilation, costs, and so on. By par-cooking food items and then regenerating them on demand, microwaves offer great flexibility to regen either in single or multi portions, whilst cutting down on costs and energy usage and reducing wastage, too.

Since microwaves don’t produce large quantities of steam, heat or odours, they don’t require much in the way of extraction or ventilation, which saves investment and energy. The models with programmable touch controls are ideal where many different staff operate the equipment, as specific menu items can be programmed in for consistency of results and ease of operation.

Samsung is one of the world's largest microwave oven brands.  Samsung Professional Appliances distributes throughout the UK and Europe and offers a comprehensive choice of commercial microwave ovens, from large-capacity, 'super-heavy duty' 1850W units down to light-commercial, budget-priced 1100W models.  All are backed by a full parts & labour warranty.  Uropa Distribution is the UK wholesaler of Samsung commercial microwave ovens.
