New Port Richey, FL - Welbilt, Inc. is pleased to announce that its new Garland® Instinct Induction powered by Inducs Series has been recognized with a 2018 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show® Kitchen Innovation Award, this is Garland’s fifth new product innovation to be recognized by this prestigious judged panel.
KI 2018The National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show (NRA) has been running the Kitchen Innovation Awards since 2005 in conjunction with their annual trade show. This year’s show takes place May 19 – 22, 2018 at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL and provides industry professionals an opportunity to see the very best equipment innovations for 2018. More than 45,000 key foodservice buyers will attend this year’s show and will visit the dedicated Kitchen Innovation pavilion where award winners will be displayed enabling key industry figures to see the best-in-class equipment within one area.
Garland® Instinct Induction powered by Inducs Series boasts the first and only comprehensive control and monitoring system for induction. Thanks to Garland’s unique RTCSmp® (Real-Time Temperature Control System multi-point) technology, the Instinct series allows fast heat up times, safe cooking and accurate temperatures by utilizing the electronics within the modules to monitor the temperature of the induction coils and energy supply. This provides the operator with the ultimate in ‘real time’ control. In addition, the temperature can be controlled down to 33.8°F (1°C) so precise temperatures can always be achieved ensuring any deviations are corrected with no delay. The patented technology also protects against ‘empty heating’ which detects if an empty pan has been left on the surface, ensuring a safe working environment, as well as minimizing unnecessary usage of heat and energy.

Designed for simple and intuitive operation, the Instinct series features a new ‘Tip and Turn’ control system. These ingeniously simple and reliable controls respond to light pressure on the control knob to activate the appliance, whilst the ‘turn’ function sets the desired temperature level.  The temperature can be held between 77°F(25°C) to 212°F (100°C) for versatile cooking, whilst consistent power transfer over the entire cooking period helps operators achieve perfect, evenly cooked food every time.
Not only does the Instinct series offer exceptional cooking functionality, it does so without generating excess heat in the working environment due to the direct heat transfer from the surface to the pan. With no wastage of heat, energy consumption costs can be reduced. With further dedication to improving the kitchen environment, the fan fitted within the models is virtually silent whilst still achieving outstanding cooling capacity so both heat and noise in the kitchen are minimized. 

If spillages occur, food residues won’t burn and stick to the Ceran cook tops of both the Instinct Hobs and Wok models thanks to the cool surface surrounding the pan. Similarly, when food is placed directly onto the Instinct Griddle units, their specially developed high-quality protection material prevents the main plate becoming affected by continuous use. Innovatively designed and extremely hardwearing, the quality surface protection also allows for easier cleaning in between and at the end of service periods further reducing staff labor.

All models are available as single-phase variants so that any establishment, big or small anywhere in the world can benefit from the advanced induction cooking capabilities achievable with the new Instinct series.
