This requirement contributes to reduced energy losses. Today, many plate dispensers and trolleys are fully uninsulated.
Electrically heated plate dispensers and trolleys must be thermally insulated, have a lid, and be thermostat controlled.
- Technical data sheet showing that the requirement is met.
A professional kitchen is an energy-intensive activity. In a school, for example, it is estimated that the kitchen facilities answer for approx. 13% of the electricity consumption (excluding heating). The equipment used for cooking, refrigeration and dishwashing is energy intensive and remains switch on for many hours a day. It is highly relevant, from a life cycle cost perspective, to demand energy-efficient equipment and good quality products. Professional kitchen equipment is designed for a long life and intensive use - a boiling pan can, for example, last up to 30 years.
