Hello, this is John Wojcik from Vollrath. Today we’re going to talk about Vollrath’s Drop-In Induction soup warmers and rethermalizers. Vollrath induction soup drop-ins require no water. It works with a 3D coil that actually heats the inset itself. So without water, you don’t have the problems that come with it as far as scaling, getting source water to a cart; and it requires no drains. Here’s an example of a Vollrath drop-in in a countertop. You can see that there are no drains because they require no water. So they mount very simply without drains. There’s a USB cable that goes from the bottom of the unit to the controls. Vollrath induction soups heat food very evenly, and that’s done by using a 3D coil. There’s an induction coil that goes on the side of the unit and underneath is a very even heat that emulates steam. Vollrath induction drop-ins have three temperature sensors inside of the well that actually measures the temperature of the inset. This gives you very accurate temperatures for high food quality, but it also gives you almost 100% yield, where you’re not burning the last third inside the inset. So it’s a very cost-effective piece of equipment. Vollrath drop-ins also use very little power. They come in a 250 watt warmer version or an 800 watt rethermalizer version. The 250 watt unit is 120 volt and is 2.1 amps. So you could actually put 8 of these onto a 20 amp circuit. Another benefit of induction is that it uses very little heat because it’s only heating the inset itself. So it’s very safe to use on counters that are stainless, or laminate, or solid surface, or quartz, because again, it puts very little temperature onto those, so completely safe to use with those different materials that are commonly used in counters. Vollrath drop-ins mount into countertops very easily. You just drop the unit in, and you’ll see that there’s mounting brackets that go onto the unit and secure it to the countertop. The function of the induction drop-ins is very simple. You turn the unit on, and you’ll see that it’s actually set to 155 degrees Fahrenheit. You can scroll up or down to set the food item to whatever temperature you like. You press the function, and it’ll show that in Celsius, you press the function again, and there’s presets in there for popular food items.

Here's how it works. An electric current creates alternating magnetic fields. These fields push against the molecules in the cookware, heating only the cookware and its contents, making it more accurate and efficient. Also making it safer, because the surface does not generate heat. Vollrath. Outperform everyday.

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.
The next time you order off a menu or visit a buffet, think about this: there's a good chance your food was prepared, cooked or served with Vollrath small wares and food service equipment. In addition to their traditional gas and electric equipment options, Vollrath's expanding line of induction products are heating up the food industry. With more precise and energy efficient cooking, that's safer and faster. Today we're in Sheboygan, Wisconsin to find out what makes Vollrath so hot. For Almost 145 years, the Vollrath company has been manufacturing high quality small wares and food service equipment right here in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Today we continue to be family owned and we continue to grow through new product acquisitions and innovations of our own. So with 9 manufacturing facilities across North American, Europe and Asia, we continue to supply a wide variety of products to many international food service markets. The Mirage series is durable by design and able to withstand the daily use and abuse of a professional kitchen, ensuring their equipment is built to last. Our industrial design team gets involved in the very beginning stages of product development all the way to the team process to the end. It's a very integrated process. A good example of this is our Mirage induction buffet warmer, which is a terrific collaboration of industrial design and engineering. So what we ended up with is a very sophisticated looking product but it's very robust, very efficient, using induction heat, so really we've improved on the customer serving experience. What's really nice about this product is that you can connect three of them together and just have one cord going to the wall. Simple, smart, safe. The team at Vollrath works diligently to evolve induction technology inside and out. As far as R and D we work closely with our customers to understand the rigors of their kitchens, because a commercial kitchen can be very difficult on equipment. We then work on advanced development here as well and we marry the two to design something that works the best for them with aesthetics, reliability, and fine control in mind the whole way through. Our expansive product selection makes us a one stop shop for our customers in induction. Products themselves started in this flat state; they were primary cooking and people loved them for the efficiency of the units and the control. If I can dial something in here and get an exact power setting each and every time and we can control it by time as well, we have very repeatable results that anyone can achieve. I think one of the biggest innovations though has come when we have taken the coil now and brought it up the sides of the unit. So this now provides very even heating around the soup pot. Typically when you see on the inside of the pot, if you ever go to a soup bar and you see all the soup around the top edge, that's just waste. Operators really love how even this heats. We have a chain that has reported to us over a 30% increase in their food yields. I mean that's real money and people just love the waterless design. Here at Vollrath they've built an entire training facility for food service professionals to provide a more hands on experience. As our business evolved we recognized the need to have an industry leading training facility. We wanted a space that customers could actually come in and touch and feel the products. We try to be like the ivy league of the food service university industry, if there is such a thing. In the university we have three areas: the first area is our classroom area and this is where the details really come out, we train on the features and benefits of the products. Then we have our showroom area. This is a space where the customers or guests can go into and touch the products and feel what we talked about in the training. Then the test area, coming in here and using the product is a critical step for a lot of our customers, it really brings everything together. These best in class products definitely take the cake. Making a product look engaging and safe and intuitive but at the same time robust and commercial can be a challenge, but we like the challenge and we're really pretty good at it. Vollrath's induction technology line continues to outperform every day. Proving that the only fire a chef really needs is inside. Bon Appétit!
