An environmentally friendly all-electric ‘cooking block’ concept – the EcoChef from CHR – is taking the commercial kitchen by storm. The suite has proved its worth at the four-star Appleby Manor Country House Hotel in Cumbria where it has streamlined the kitchen operation and slashed running costs at the same time.
The award-winning Appleby Manor exudes luxury and comfort. It has everything a guest could possibly desire – open log burning fires, excellent bedrooms, a leisure club, an impressive selection of fine wines and whiskies as well as an award-winning restaurant offering superb views over the fells of the Lake District.
Mike Dunbobbin, owner and operator of Appleby Manor, contacted CHR Equipment of Preston, Lancashire to quote for a new up to date replacement for the existing gas range. However, in the ensuing discussion with CHR Founder Ron Neville and Director Paul Neville the idea of installing an energy efficient full electric kitchen was proposed.
