Following a complete remodelling, the addition of a 48-seater cafe-style restaurant and the launch of a delivery service, Zero Plus in Cardiff needed a frying range that could cope with the increased volume. Embracing high efficiency for the first time, owner Zohaib Hussain has installed a four pan Kiremko wall range.
Incorporating the latest technology – including Fry touchscreen controls – Zohaib describes frying on the new range as “unbelievably easy”, adding: “Before, you had to be like a chef because our chips and fish went in the same pan and there were so many things you had to keep a check on. Now we’ve separated the processes so they both have dedicated pans. The fish goes in, you push a button and you know exactly when the fish is done. And it’s coming out beautiful every time, like every fish is just perfect.
“It is a new way of cooking. I always thought I was serving really good quality food, but it has gone to the next level with the Kiremko.”
With four high efficiency pans and built-in triple filtration, the range is using 50% less fat compared to the two pan range it superseded. Based on oil savings alone, Zohaib estimates the range will pay for itself in three and a half years, although this is likely to be much sooner once the shop’s gas bill comes in and the gas savings are factored in too.
Zohaib adds: “A really good feature of my new range is the flame symbol that shows on the control screen when the gas is lit. I hardly see it come up so I know the pans are holding temperature and I’m not using any gas.
