The Joy of Real Induction for Serious Chefs

We can’t wait for our summer season of food exhibitions and events to really heat-up!

We are overjoyed that MCS Technical Products has given us two market-leading CookTek induction hobs for our chefs to explore on The Chefs’ Forum demo stage.

It’s a big deal. CookTek is industry standard. That means 94% efficiency, a five-year warranty and all parts manufactured in-house. Everything is built in the Dallas factory. CookTek don’t ‘buy in’ boards and coils and their units can be found in the leading kitchens of every sector.

Steve Snow, MD of MCS Technical Products said

“I’m very proud to have been the exclusive distributer for CookTek in the UK and Ireland for the last twenty-three years.  I view the CookTek range to be the very best on the market and our customer feedback from top chefs backs this up.  It is very important that top chefs have access to market-leading equipment that is powerful and controllable, to achieve the excellent results that high profile chefs demand.”

One fan of CookTek is Cyrus Todiwala. He’s been using a CookTek Wok and induction unit for 15 years.  At one point he had 11 CookTek hobs in various establishments.  Cyrus has always supported MSC Technical Products and CookTek in his restaurants, he said

“I think they’re the best, they are so solid and are definitely built to last. They have withstood heavy use in my busy kitchens. They are so easy to use and super-efficient, too. They are quick to reach temperature and easy to clean.”

TV Pastry Judge Benoit Blin echoes Cyrus’ comments, he has installed CookTek induction in his world-class pastry kitchens at Le Manoir aux Quat’Seasons, A Belmond Hotel in Oxfordshire, he said

“CookTek induction is an integral part of my kitchen.  They are extremely versatile and facilitate ultra-precise cooking.  The fact that we’ve had them for 19 years, is a real testament to their solid manufacturing  – It is long lasting, quality equipment like this that we need in our kitchens.”

The first CookTek Heritage hobs were installed at Le Manoir 19 years ago and more have been installed over the years, most recently CookTek Appogee hobs for the pastry kitchen, these hobs are extremely controllable to 100 different heat settings, perfect for pastry chefs where precision is key.

CookTek are induction specialists. They are a global brand based in Dallas USA and they only design and manufacture heavy duty induction for commercial use. Reliability and usability are top priorities.

These are the key differences and the main reasons our chefs are so excited to be working with CookTek.
