Samsung has launched a new version of its Snackmate light duty commercial microwave oven.
The company says the unit is ideal for sites such as pubs, small cafes and bistros as it brings commercial microwave technology at an affordable price.The microwave is touch control and programmable and has a power rating of 1,100W.
David Watts of Samsung Professional Appliances said: “The market for compact commercial microwaves is very competitive. The new Snackmate is built to withstand the usage in a commercial environment while being small and at a budget price.”
The Snackmate has a 26 litre oven capacity, wipe clean touch controls, a digital display and a 20 programme memory. It also comes in a manual version.
With internal dimensions of 336mm x 225mm x 349mm, it uses a bottom-fed stirrer to ensure the microwaves are distributed evenly throughout the internal cavity.
Samsung claims that its “sturdy construction and reliable electronics” allow it to provide a three-year on-site warranty covering all parts and labour costs, excluding misuse.
Samsung said the price point for the unit will be around £300, excluding VAT. It is available through Uropa Distribution, which serves as the UK wholesaler of Samsung commercial microwave ovens.Samsung targets pubs and cafes with new kit | cateringinsight.com.
