With festival season just months away, many caterers are turning their attention to sunnier weather, longer days and thoughts of outdoor events and festivals
As the UK’s street food scene flourishes and the number of open-air food & drink events, music festivals and sporting occasions hits an all-time high, Burco has introduced the mobile range – a gas boiler and portable handwash, ideal for alfresco catering events throughout the summer.
Jon Usher, Head of Catering at Burco, part of the Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation division comments:
“The catering provision at festivals and outdoor events is becoming an ever more essential part of a summer offering. With many operators seizing the opportunity to generate a greater income and significantly increase profits, ensuring a quality food and beverage menu is essential. Our Burco gas boiler range allows for the same great consistent hot beverage offering, with the added benefit of portability. Capable of being used anywhere and at any time, the boilers in the range are a must have for any event catering business.
It is not just the physical food offering and production that needs to be considered at outdoor events, but also the cleanliness and hygiene of employees, contractors and customers too. With this in mind, the provision of handwash facilities and waste disposal units is vital.”
Burco’s mobile range features standard and deluxe Gas Boiler models, both powered by portable LPG gas for added flexibility when using at outdoor events. With the uncertainty of British weather, providing a quality hot beverage offering can be a real winner even for summer time events.
Featuring a sleek, robust design, sturdy securable feet, a compact footprint, ideal for when counter space is at a premium and a simple, manual fill operation, the Burco boilers are not only easy to use, but also simple to maintain and transport as needed.
The units feature a number of patented features, including the unique Burco locking tap, able to be user-controlled or switched to a constant flow in an instant. With safety a number one priority, both models in the range feature a safety flame cut-off and dual wall technology for maintaining temperature and a cooler touch exterior. The deluxe model also features the latest Piezo ignition system for fast, reliable operation.
Completing the mobile range, the Burco Handwash comes in a contemporary stainless steel finish, fitting in with other professional kitchen appliances and optimising the ease of cleaning. Its 10-litre capacity allows for over 85 washes per fill. Large wheels provide easy mobility, ensuring it is ready for constant use anywhere on site.
Designed to effectively reduce the spread of germs, the Burco Portable Handwash features a foot operated infrared system to rid the potential transfer of bacteria via touch, therefore, achieving maximum hygiene. Powered by a standard 13-amp plug, the handwash is ideal for outdoor events, festivals and fetes, while a temperature limit of 42°C guarantees comfort and safety.
