Induction technology offers the advantage of fast heating up times with very precise temperature control. Ideal for simmering, bain marie work, bringing off a delicate sauce or custard.

Outstanding performance with variable power, adjustable heavy duty cooking surface and lava rock for outdoor flavour.

This is a highly effective indoor bbq, but controllable. Use it for all the usual items, but do not be shy of charring off a whole leg of lamb or large cut of beef, or griddling vegetables or fish fillets just like in the restaurants.

Because the fryer is of professional design, it is capable of delivering the delicious crisp, golden results of properly deep fried food that we tend to enjoy on the Continent, rather than the ubiquitous saturated, sludgy offerings still typical in so much of the UK. Forget the battered mars bar and think goujons of sole, apple fritters, crisped calamari rings and zucchini flowers - you get the idea. The key is large capacity and high temperature.

The multi cooker allows you accurate temperature control and therefore a huge variation of styles: you might use the boiling function for cooking pasta, or shellfish – the control and volume of the multi-cooker allows for accurate timing and optimum results (as opposed to over boiled and spoiled food); the steaming function gives you clean, colourful vegetables, fish etc still rich in nutrition and goodness. You might also steam several different things at the same time in different trays; the bain marie function can be used for holding cooked food and sauces ready for serving, or for cooking gently (melting chocolate for example).

The potential is limitless – we have steamed lobsters, boiled shellfish, simmered puddings, as well as the usual delicious al dente steamed vegetables and succulent fish.

The plancha is designed for cooking food directly on its surface. You can use for anything from fried eggs and griddled breakfasts to drop scones, to fillets of fish and whole joints of meat. Do not be afraid of using the high temperatures for searing meat or vegetables. This is a very healthy way of cooking, requiring less fat and grease.

A flat stainless steel cooking surface for fast and precise cooking, especially when cooking vegetables, fish, meat, breakfasts etc.

Solid cast iron cooking surface for saucepans etc.

Choice of Ovens

100% genuine professional ovens offer outstanding power and performance. Because Lacanche cookers are genuinely duel fuel, you can have a combination of gas and electric ovens in your cooker. Most people’s choice includes at least one gas oven and one electric oven. Remember, a gas oven can be incredibly useful for cooking when there is a power cut.

Cooking with Lacanche ovens does represent something of a gear change after a normal domestic oven. The key thing is to try with some simple recipes which you know well and feel free to adapt timings and temperatures as you wish. The process is not so much one of setting a temperature, putting the food in and then coming back after the prescribed time in the recipe; but rather checking the food during cooking, looking at it, maybe turning it, testing it by feel, smell, sight and taste (being careful not to burn yourself). If required alter the temperature. One of the advantages of the Lacanche ranges is that the ovens will recover their temperature quickly after the door has been opened – remember in the commercial kitchen oven doors are opened continuously, and a Lacanche oven is based on a commercial oven. So don’t be shy of it, but engage with your food and dishes and the cooking process, and be prepared to adapt. You will soon get the hang of it and will enjoy the benefits of these versatile ovens.

100% genuine professional ovens offer outstanding power and performance.

Choose your ideal combination from:

This is a thermostatically controlled oven with natural heat zones (hotter at top) and independently controlled grill (for closed door grilling). The wide temperature range (50ºC - 260ºC) makes this a versatile general purpose oven, with a large powerful grill (for closed door grilling). Be sure to allow warm up time (c. 20 mins) for best results.

The Convection Oven with Grill offers faster cooking, minimal transfer of smell & taste, and again with an independently controlled grill. As before the wide temperature range (50ºC - 260ºC) makes this a very versatile general purpose oven, fast heating with even temperature, and a large, powerful grill (for closed door grilling). Heat-up times are quicker than for a static oven. You may find that the power of the convection oven is greater than that you are used to, so be prepared to shave maybe 10⁰C or so off indicated cooking temperatures. If the food is catching at the back it is because of its proximity to the convector, so simply turn the dish during cooking.The rapid heating means the oven recovers its temperature quickly between door openings, and also makes it a good oven for batch cooking and using multi layers in the oven.Thermostatically controlled natural heat zones with independently controlled grill.Faster cooking.

Some models of Lacanche offer the option of a dual function electric oven . This oven converts from a traditional static electric oven with grill to a convection electric oven with grill by means of a simple switch. It offers the advantages of both in a single oven, and is consequently a versatile and popular choice.

The Lacanche Gas Oven is very powerful, with a temperature range of 100ºC -260ºC. It is a good general purpose oven, but remember the lowest temperature is 100ºC and so cooking at temperatures below that is not possible.These gas ovens are ideal for high temperature cooking – brilliant for roasting, soufflés, pizzas etc, and for sealing joints/meat/poultry with a very hot blast (the “20 minute sizzle”) at the beginning of cooking. You may then to move the dish over to another oven for further cooking. You should be able to use the oven for roasting and baking (for example roast potatoes in the gas oven should be easy). Remember to check the food, and turn as required. The electric ovens are recommended for lower temperature cooking and for cooking more slowly e.g. casseroles, stews, puddings etc.

If you have both a gas oven and one of the electric ovens on your cooker, then you have the best of both worlds.

The Gas Ovens are heated by a powerful base element, so there is strong base heat. It is very important to allow the gas oven to get up to temperature before trying to cook. It will do this very quickly (c. 10 minutes). Putting food into a cold oven may result in overcooked or burnt food as the oven will be working flat out to come up to temperature, possibly causing food to catch on the base.

The gas ovens do not have an LED temperature indicator, but they are fast to heat up and c. 10 minutes should do it.

Its huge cupboard like capacity offers plenty of room for plate warming, holding food, proving dough, slow cooking stews, meringues, fruit etc; slow roasting joints (e.g. shoulder of lamb, pork belly); and drying out ingredients (mushrooms, tomatoes etc). This is a very versatile oven which makes light of entertaining and large and long meals, taking the pressure off the cook. Once you’ve used one you will not be without one. Many customers coming off latent heat cookers with simmer ovens adore this option.

All of the Lacanche electric ovens have an LED next to the control. While the oven is heating up the LED is illuminated. When the oven has reached the selected temperature, the LED will extinguish.

Storage

Lacanche Range Cookers are equipped with storage drawers. The drawers are for storage and are not constructed or designed for cooking. They are useful for storing accessories, roasting dishes etc. They may be removed for cleaning if required by extending, tilting the front up and then lifting out. When an oven above them is in use, the drawers may get warm or hot. Enamel interior on smooth runners. Ideal for warming plates, proving bread or light storage.

Stainless steel interior provides large capacity storage. Heats when upgraded to simmer oven.

Building-in Guidance

Lacanche range cookers are designed to sit proud of adjacent units. Units and infill strips adjacent to the cooker should not sit flush or proud of the cooker doors (including oven, simmer oven and cupboard doors), but should sit flush with the main boy of the cooker.

The stainless steel hob of the appliance should not b e lower than adjoining worktops. These worktops can butt up to the hob.

For cookers situated in confined spaces (e.g. inglenooks), with gas ovens, or with tiles rather than a backsplash on the back wall behind and above the cooker, we recommend installing a backstrip – see backstrips in Accessories.

Wall units that are placed to the left and right of the cooker must be at a minimum distance of 450mm above the hob tops on both sides. Al cookers over 1 metre wide are designed to be mounted against a wall and are not intended as free standing island cookers.

Any combustible materials must be a minimum of 850mm from the top of the cooker. Please note that it is advisable to have a wipe clean surface on the wall above the cooker, such as our stainless steel backsplashes.

All Lacanche cookers are built with a plinth incorporated into the base of the cooker. The plinth allows for greater manoeuvrability when putting the cooker in its final position and also allows for the cooker to be levelled. The height is adjustable (900mm to 910mm). A tool for making adjustments is supplied. The plinths have a brushed stainless steel kick pate on the front. The cookers also have adjustable front feet.

The above information is not exhaustive and we recommend that you check the relevant Installer’s Manual.
