A hotel undergoing a multi-million-pound revamp has tasked UK supplier of induction cookers Exclusive Ranges with installing a first-of-its-kind cooking range in its kitchen.
Stanwell House, a privately owned boutique hotel in the center of Lymington, is undergoing an extensive refurbishment project – building a “kitchen for the future”, centered around a multi-functional cooking suite.
After working with a long list of suppliers to help with the final touches to the Grade II Georgian building, Stanwell chose Exclusive Ranges to install the Celsius Black cooking range by Menu System with full ‘Data Lounge’, being the first of its kind to be installed in the UK.
Exclusive Ranges has built more than 3,000 cookers and installed over 200 kitchens in restaurants nationwide, including in more than 50 Michelin-Starred restaurants.
Stanwell House is the first to implement its latest cooking range, with the new installation also aiming to create a better working environment for staff as the induction hob helps to make the kitchen a cooler working space, while also complimenting the hotel’s plans to cut carbon emissions, manage kitchen ambience and save costs.
The new technology allows personnel to view and monitor the performance of individual appliances and the cost of running them in real-time
The Data Lounge will give the venue the ability to fully manage power usage, peak usage, and will send service and maintenance alerts offering active service prevention.
Daily, monthly, or annual reports also showcase power input, capacity, consumption, operating times and start of operation, in real-time.
Lance Bartlett, general manager at Stanwell House, said: “We’re really excited to have the UK’s first cooking range by Menu System installed in our kitchen and we’re excited to see what culinary masterpieces our executive chef Chris Wheeldon and his team will produce using the new equipment.
“We have been investing in all areas of the hotel, and the kitchen is no exception. We want our guests to be wowed when they visit and to be able to notice our commitment into making the hotel a luxury boutique with thought and detail going into every aspect of Stanwell House.”
