FriFri introduces new range of pasta cookers
Four new energy efficient pasta cookers have been added to the FriFri range. With a single tank format, for either free standing or built-in applications, these innovative new pasta boilers bring sophisticated FriFri design, robust construction and reliable operation to pasta cooking.
The new range includes two high-specification models, which are fully programmable with up to 16 user programs so that the operator can simply load the baskets, select the cooking time and move onto the next task. Water temperature is electronically controlled to within +/- 2 °C and when the optimum temperature has been reached, the basket will be automatically lowered into the water. At the end of the cooking cycle the basket is lifted out of the water, again automatically, to prevent over cooking.
“Pasta is an established favourite of nearly every kitchen, but it can be difficult to get it just right”, said John Shepherd, of FriFri. “Our new high specification pasta cookers take the guess work out of the process, producing perfect, consistent results whoever is cooking, whilst saving time and money.”
For those looking for a more affordable option the range also includes two Super Easy pasta cookers which offer exceptional value for money, solid reliable design and quality construction.
All FriFri pasta cookers feature fully pressed, seamless tanks and heating elements which can be tilted up, for ease of cleaning. There’s also a continuous supply of fresh water with an auto-skim function, to remove excess starch. An innovative thermal recovery system saves energy, whilst delivering quicker heat up and recovery times and high specification models also include a stand-by feature to further reduce energy usage when the pasta boiler is not in use.
Customers will also have the option to buy accessories with the FriFri range of pasta boilers, including large pasta baskets or individual portion-sized baskets.
Though currently not widely known in the UK, FriFri (pronounced ‘free free’) cooking equipment is recognised throughout the rest of the world for its extremely high specification. FriFri began life as an independent Swiss company. It was acquired by a larger Swiss company, Franke, some years ago, and then by Middleby in January 2009. Products are now manufactured at a dedicated cell at Lincat’s Lincoln production base, where the majority of FriFri products and components are also held in stock.
