Lincat OPUS SelfCooking Center
Smart technology - no need to worry about temperature, time
and humidity, complicated programming or constant monitoring. The revolutionary
SelfCooking center takes care of all of this. All you have to do is press
a button to select the particular food and how you want it cooked. The
SelfCooking Center does the rest for you. It really is that easy.
The Opus SelfCooking Center senses the size and
quantity of food product, automatically selects the appropriate cooking mode
(dry, moist or combination heat) and sets the temperature, time and humidity
levels. It the monitors the entire cooking process 3,600 times and hour, making
the adjustments as necessary.
The clear, intuitive control panel offers a choice of food
types and cooking styles:
- Grilling / Pan Frying
- Bakery Products
- Side dishes
Simple sub-menus and prompts allow you to define the
precise type of food to be cooked. For example, you can select sweet or savoury
products from the bakery products mode.
Accurate control of humidity is essential for perfect,
consistent cooking results. All Opus SelfCooking Centers incorporate
ClimaPlus Control. This unique technology measures cabinet humidity and
makes adjustments as necessary, adding or extracting steam to maintain the
desired humidity to an accuracy of +/- 1%.
At the heart of the Opus SelfCooking Center is a
food temperature probe with six measuring points. This ensures that the core of
the food is accurately identified and precisely measured every time. A
positioning aid keeps the sensor in place when cooking liquids or semi solids.
Every commercial kitchen needs the facility to keep food
warm prior to serving. But the price of this convenience is all too often a loss
of quality. You should never have to compromise on your standards, and thanks to
the unique Finishing mode in every Opus SelfCooking Center you don't have
to. It eliminates the need to keep food warm and enables you to prepare the
required dishes during quieter periods. That means less pressure and no stress
when the rush is really on.
The Opus SelfCooking Center significantly lowers
your operating costs in a number of ways. Reduced food shrinkage means that you
can produce more slices of meat and poultry. The system virtually eliminates the
need for fat. It cuts energy consumption by more than half compared to
conventional cooking, and it incorporates features that free up labour for more
productive duties. The likelihood is that you will be able to recoup the
purchase of your new SelfCooking Center in less than one year.
The CleanJet system does away with the need for bulky and
expensive conventional cleaning fluids, not to mention elbow grease! Instead it
automatically cleans the cabinet using detergent and rinse aid tablets. It's
safer, more convenient, and reliable to. There are no additional parts and the
system does not rely on a minimum water pressure.
Water softeners are always advisable in hard water areas,
but the unique CalcDiagnosis system can help solve problems associated
with hard water before they happen. This advanced system constantly monitors
limescale build-up in the steam generator and issues a warning when descaling is
necessary. This can then be done quickly and easily using the built in automatic
descaling program. And best of all it can be done by your own staff, eliminating
the need for expensive service visits.
Another time-saving advantage of the Self-Cooking
is its ability to collect and store important HACCP data which you can download
to a PC. This gives you the information you need to comply with hygiene and food
You can allow the SelfCooking Center to take
control of the entire cooking process, or with the push of a button, you can
assume control by switching the system to the Combi Steamer mode. In this mode,
you can use the unit as a high-spec combi steamer using familiar controls for
humidity, temperature and time.
