FEM carves up market

Food Equipment Marketing (FEM) is now supplying Alto-Shaam Carving Stations, which are ideal for butchers looking to branch out into ready-to-order roast meat sandwiches.

Designed for the foodservice industry, the stations keep roast meat succulent and hot, while reducing shrinkage by up to 18%. They use a special heating system called Halo-Heat, which provides controlled, even heat from the carving shelf surface, gently holding the meat at serving temperature without drying out or spoiling, claims FEM. It also retains the food’s moisture and nutrients and increases product holding life.
The units have a fixed lamp and an adjustable thermostat for better management of surface temperature. Both the screen and the cutting board are removable for easy cleaning.
The carving stations are available from FEM in two model sizes. The smaller station, with a single lamp, has a capacity of 18kg and measures just 466mm (w) x 648mm (d) x 787mm (h). The double lamp station has a capacity of 32kg and measures 660mm (w) x 782mm (d) x 783mm (h). Both have low energy usage. They can stand alone in the shop or be combined with a Halo-Heat cook and hold oven or holding cabinet for butchers with a dedicated food-to-go section.
