Expanding Your Opportunities

In today’s fast-paced world, it takes a sharp foresight to notice the big opportunities. But it takes a genuine innovator to actually create them, truly expanding what’s possible in ways never seen before. At Merrychef, we’ve built our entire history on shaping the future, bringing breakthroughs to life to further expand your opportunities. As we now look ahead, we’re excited to work with you and continue our tradition of solving tomorrow’s challenges – today.

Beginning with our very first high-speed ovens designed in 1950, we were proud to invent an entirely new method of cooking in kitchens and restaurants around the world. Ushering in a new era of rapid, on-demand ordering, we created ways to meet those guests’ growing appetite for fast, flavorful food – without ever having to sacrifice quality or consistency.

That’s the same promise we hold today, ensuring our customers never have to compromise when tackling daily challenges or planning for their future growth. It’s what drives us to keep our innovative thinking and solutions as fresh as the meals you serve, so you can rely on us to expand those opportunities right at the very heart of your business: the kitchen itself.

And with their smart, simple sophistication, all of our products are designed to streamline your workflow. By keeping the entire space in mind when creating new solutions, we’re able to make equipment that’s not only streamlined and easy to use, but also truly connected to the rest of your kitchen.

Backed by generations of expertise, we’ve maintained a deliberate, mindful perspective in order to keep on innovating far beyond the oven. It’s what allows us to serve tens of thousands of restaurants like yours, all across the globe. And while others may see only daunting challenges, we at Merrychef have never been prouder to continue discovering ambitious and exciting innovations for expanding your opportunities.

2016: Commercial Kitchen Award for the eikon® e2s

GUILDFORD UK. The new Merrychef eikon® e2s has once again taken top spot after winning the Gold Innovation Award at the Commercial Kitchen Show’s Innovation Challenge on Wednesday 8th June 2016. The smallest, high-speed oven is the latest addition to Manitowoc Foodservice’s Merrychef brand portfolio and is the ultimate in accelerated cooking equipment.
 
The latest product innovation from Manitowoc Foodservice, the Merrychef eikon e2s is user friendly, versatile and provides consistent levels of performance aimed at continually exceeding operator expectations – the ideal solution for any operation wanting to prepare fresh, hot food on demand where space is at a premium. The eikon e2s is the ideal way to cook, reheat, toast and bake a wide range of food items such as toasted sandwiches, pizzas and wraps.Innovation Challenge Award
 
Steve Hemsil, National Sales Manager Distribution – UK & Ireland, at Manitowoc Foodservice UK is delighted to have won the Award:
“Manitowoc Foodservice is thrilled to have been awarded Gold in the Innovation Challenge and it is fantastic that the new Merrychef eikon e2s has been recognised by the industry with such an aptly named award! The Merrychef e2s is the most innovative product that we have launched to date with performance up to twenty times faster than a conventional oven whilst producing consistent, high-quality cooking results enabling establishments the ability to deliver fresher and more delicious hot food to customers.
 
It’s hugely important that Merrychef products are recognised for the cutting edge design that forms a key part of our research and development process. Most importantly however, is that the design of the products fits the requirements of the hundreds of establishments and thousands of kitchen and front of house staff using the equipment every day. This award truly is a testimonial of our ‘eye for detail’ and investment into Merrychef e2sinnovation with the new Merrychef eikon e2s.”
 
Featuring easyTouch® technology with an icon driven touch screen, the Merrychef eikon e2s is simple to operate by any member of the staff in the kitchen. A USB memory stick can be used to transfer up to 1,024 different cooking programmes, to ensure menu consistency, especially by operators with multiple locations.  This feature helps maintain the same quality of menu choices in each outlet, every time.
 
Several design features make the Merrychef eikon e2s suitable for use in outlets where it will be installed front-of-house and is in constant use. Available in two exterior cool-to-the-touch options: Classic, featuring a stainless steel exterior and Trend, which offers a choice of two colour exteriors (red and black). The stylish design of the Merrychef eikon e2s makes it an aesthetically pleasing addition to any countertop. A merchandising panel is available on the ‘Trend’ model on the back of the unit should it be facing towards the customer. Designed for use within the hustle and bustle of food-to-go outlets, the Merrychef eikon e2s ‘Trend’ also features accessory storage on top of the oven. Operators can use this additional surface to store popular items which are in constant demand – from cups and cutlery, to condiments!
 
With the fastest warm-up and cool-down times in its class, the Merrychef eikon e2s reduces downtime and improves ease of use. Having such a fast warm-up time means reduced wait times at the start of the day whilst the oven’s fast cool-down time means that cleaning can be done shortly after the last order has been cooked. Additionally, its seam-welded cavity and  large  rounded  edges  makes  cleaning  quick  and simple.
 
Measuring 620mm x 356mm x 595m m (H x W x D), the new Merrychef eikon e2s has the best-in-class cavity to footprint ratio (12” cavity in a 14” footprint). This ensures that the high-speed oven maximises available  space  and  can  fit  on  a  standard  600mm  deep  work  surface.  To  take  this  even  further,  an adaptor is available to  connect  two  Merrychef  eikon  e2s  standard  power  units  to  one  32A  socket  so ‘banks’ of ovens can be installed in busy outlets without a separate power socket for each unit.
 
The new Merrychef eikon ® e2s is ideally suited for use in cafés, coffee shops, sandwich bars and delis – or any such outlet where menus, space, foot traffic or customers dictate a fast turnaround on food orders.
 

2015: Good Design* Award for eikon e2s

The new Merrychef® eikon® e2s has scooped a prestigious design award from the Chicago Athenaeum, otherwise known as the International Museum of Architecture and Design.
