Kitchen Combat – Vollrath Wear-Ever Fry Pans

April 22nd, 2013 by REW Blog Team

Frying pans may not be recognized as a weapon, but after you watch this episode of Kitchen Combat, you might think twice about arguing with the chef. Vollrath markets their Wear-Ever series as “extra dent resistant,” so we decided to see what dent resistant meant in terms of Man vs Pan. As said in the video, most of our stress testing should not happen in the kitchen unless you make scrambled eggs with a sledge hammer, but it is always nice to see the true quality of a product. Our verdict: you won’t be replacing a dinged pan anytime soon if you’re using Vollrath Wear-Ever fry pans.

Check out our selection of Wear-Ever Fry Pans or leave a comment and let us know what you think.

Two Men and a Hatco Heat Lamp

June 21st, 2011 by REW Blog Team

We shall begin by stating that you should never, ever stand on heat lamps. Unless it is in the name of science. While they probably won’t ever be stood upon, Hatco’s heat lamps will undergo a lot of abuse in your food-service operation, especially when used as shelves.

With so much stress that is put on your heat lamps, it is good to know that they could stand up to the pressure of two guys standing on the extruded casing – right in the center. For those who are unfamiliar with the terminology, “extruded” means that a single piece of steel was pushed through a die to form the material. Other manufacturing processes, such as bending or welding flat metal, can lead to weakened joints. So what is the real-world advantage of these heady metal-working terms?

Strength and durability. No one plans for abuse on restaurant equipment, but staff leaning on your shelves or an over-abundance of heavy dinnerware can lead to buckling in the real world. Bent shelves, broken internals, and shattered bulbs can make for a bad night; if the external casing is stronger, you can be sure that the internals are better protected.

In Hatco’s case, two men can stand on a 96” long casing without the sides collapsing and without it laterally warping. Talk about a testament to the overall quality of Hatco’s products. While food warmers are typically in the 24″-72″ range, like Hatco’s Glo-Ray GRAM-24, GRAM-48, and GRAM-72 models, they still have the strength and thickness of the longer piece demonstrated here. The shorter the food warmer is, the less prone it is to bending.

When considering a new heat lamp purchase, consider strength along with wattage, heat type, and length. You never know when you might need it.

June 13th, 2011 by REW Blog Team

Metro’s products are built to stand up to more than their fair share of punishment and to survive the rigors of the foodservice industry. In a rare, never before seen archival video, we’re allowed a brief glimpse of the testing process that Metro subjects each of its products to before certifying that they can stand up to the challenge of a busy kitchen environment.
