Vollrath Mirage Induction

Vollrath Mirage Induction

Welcome to Vollrath University. I'm Chef Rich, and we're here today to talk about mirage induction. But first, let's just talk a little bit about how induction works. Okay, induction uses electromagnetic energy to create a vibration between the molecules in the pan itself. The induction units themselves do not create any heat; they don't get hot, they don't have any heat, there's no heating elements or flames used. 100% of the heat is created in the pan itself. So as I said, there's this electromagnetic energy that causes the molecules in the pan to vibrate, much in the same way when we're cold, we rub our hands together to create fiction and to create heat.... That's exactly the way induction works. This unit, the mirage unit... we'll talk a little bit about the controls. We have 100 power level settings, okay? We can also cook by temperature. The temperature range on this unit is 60 to 210 degrees Celsius. Again, we have 100 power level controls, and that's really important as you want to get into that very precise control. Precise control for low-end applications, and also precise control for very high heat applications. Okay? So let's just go ahead and demonstrate this unit today by cooking a little chicken marsala. Now, we didn't talk about a couple other things about induction, one being very little emissions. So, you know, depending on your municipality, you may or may not need this unit to be under a hood. In some municipalities you can get by without this unit being in a hood. Why would someone want to use induction? Induction is safer. Just by the way, we talked about it already... that it doesn't have any open flames or heating elements. The units never really ever get hot. The heat is generated in the pan, so they are much safer to use. Induction does require for the cookware to be magnetic. Simply the bottom of the cookware has to be a magnetic surface to allow those molecules to be excited by the electromagnetic energy that the unit's producing. Also induction... you can see this unit... really cool on the outside here again... you don't have much heat loss coming out, so again, the hood.... Also, look at this how nice this is if you're doing front of the house cooking. Front of the house or back of the house is a perfect location for induction. Alright, so there you have it, a very classic chicken marsala. Mirage induction. Again, a perfect range for front or back of the house cooking. All the tight control you have with (1) 100 power settings, or temperature settings. Mirage induction, really the way to go. If you have any questions about the mirage unit, please see us online at vollrath.com, and for Rich's recipe on the chicken marsala, please visit us at vollrathuniversity.com.

Did you know that induction is a safer way to cook than with traditional methods? With no flame and with no heating element, induction is, as Chef Rich says, "really the way to go." Find out more about induction and the Vollrath mirage induction unit with this brief, informational video.

Vollrath Mirage Buffet Induction Warmers

Vollrath Mirage Buffet Induction Warmers

Welcome to Vollrath University! I'm Chef Rich and we're here today to talk about the Vollrath buffet induction warmer. As you can see, these are very low profile and have a sleek design. They are designed to fit any decor. They are induction, so we need to make sure we are using induction-rated cookware, buffet-ware, and chafers. Along with induction, we get all the benefits of having no open flames, having small article detection, having an empty-pan shut off system, and so forth. They are all the features you know of with Vollrath induction. The controls on this unit are very simple to operate. It has one-button controls along the backside. Press the button to turn it on and we can see on the top of the unit that we have 4 power level settings. Number 4 has really been designed for preheating. It has a much higher power for preheating water. Then, operators can choose levels 3, 2, or 1 for keeping hot food hot. Some other features of this unit are about the cord maintenance. The power cord comes on the back of the unit right next to the controls. Side units come off the center unit going to each unit. This is the interconnect cord. Each unit comes with 1 of these. They are 30" long. Each unit comes with 1 power cord that goes to the wall. The advantage here is that this unit, being the unit that can be plugged into the wall, the 2 other units one each side operate and get power from this main unit. So, cord maintenance. We also have a little storage area here for the extra interconnect cord on the bottom of each unit. So, again, really a nice design. Now, we said that this is induction ready and has the advantage of running 5 units off a standard 15 amp circuit or up to 7 units off a 20 amp circuit. So each unit, being 300 heating watts, allows us to offer that many units per standard circuit, which is really helpful with buffets. You can see that these units have a natural finish. We also offer them in all black. They have a really nice look. We also offer a drop in. The drop ins are really nice because they have large radius corners that make it easy to drop into a counter, and in that situation, we have a remote control that you can put on the side of the counter. These are great units! If you have any questions about these or anything else at Vollrath, please see us online at Vollrath.com

Customer questions about this product

Can this induction range handle any pan capacity?
Most induction ranges do not have specified weight or pan capacities. The key to ensuring your range works properly and does not get damaged by too much weight is to use a pan with a bottom diameter that does not exceed the burner's diameter. Using a larger pan or pot, such as a stock pot, will lessen the effectiveness of the range and the quality of your food.
