Induction cooking suite for Roseleaf cafe
‘Brilliant' is how Jonny Kane of the Roseleaf Bar and Cafe in Leith, the old docks of Edinburgh, described the performance of his new Control Induction cooking suite. The suite which consists of four single induction hobs and a French plancha, with Blue Seal oven underneath and a salamander above was installed back in November 2011. Jonny says 'now we don't have to pay for gas anymore, I don't get the £600 per month gas bills and there has been no noticeable change in the electricity bills'.
This site originally had a traditional six burner Falcon Dominator range with an oven and a salamander which tended to be left on for a lot of the time. With the new energy efficient induction hobs only using power when there are pans on them and the new salamander which similarly is only switched on when a plate is under the grill, coupled with the new energy efficient Gram counter fridge, Roseleaf has gone for products offering optimum energy efficiency wherever possible.
One interesting point in the last photo, look how the black soot marks are disappearing from the pans. Like most pans used on a gas stove, they used to be black on the outside from the dirty gas flames. Slowly, the regular washing, and nothing being baked on by the induction is cleaning the pans.
