Exclusive Ranges announces the first installation of Menu System’s Celsius Black with full Data Lounge at newly refurbished, independent hotel, Stanwell House.
Stanwell House, a Grade II listed Georgian hotel in Hampshire, has taken a step into the future and opted for a cooking range by Menu System with its Celsius Black and full Data Lounge for its soon to be opened, refurbished kitchen.
When it was decided to take the Grade II listed, independently owned Stanwell House hotel in Hampshire back to its former original glory, the main considerations for the owners were how to build a state of the art kitchen for the future that was centred around a multi-functional cooking suite within the limited space of a Georgian building, and how to ensure it operated as cost-effectively as possible. The unrivalled control and extent of the information that could be obtained from the cooker was key to the decision for Chris Wheeldon, executive chef.
Exclusive Ranges was brought in by Clive Yarwood, commercial director at Fatboys Catering Equipment, to build confidence and trust in the client and help them take a leap of faith into new territory by installing a Menu System cooking suite with Celsius Black and full Data Lounge package; the first of its kind in the UK.
This independent hotel had the foresight to invest in the future after seeing Celsius Black and Data Lounge demonstrated at HRC earlier in the year. The high quality performance, flexibility of design and connectivity via the internet that would enable full control of the range meant it was a no-brainer as no other company could match the features that Menu System’s high tech Celsius Black and Data Lounge offers, meeting the current demands of the UK market.
As well as being able to view and monitor the performance of individual appliances live and the cost of running them in real time, the Data Lounge will enable the ability to fully manage not only power usage, but peak usage too, and will send service and maintenance alerts to nominated personnel offering active service prevention, by text and email, create daily, monthly or annual pdf reports and enable you to view power input, capacity, consumption, as well as operating times and start of operation, in real time.
Trevor Burke, Managing Director, Exclusive Ranges; “Working with the team at Menu System to bring this technology to life in a working environment has been an amazing experience. They are already world leaders in induction technology but are dedicated to becoming first in class to connect this technology across not only its own platform, but integrated across other equipment, giving foodservice and hospitality businesses the ability to manage, monitor and monetise their operations.”
