Delfield Refrigeration Innovation Recognized with 2007 Kitchen Innovations Award
Mt. Pleasant, MI—The National Restaurant Association has recognized Delfield for leadership in refrigeration technology with a 2007 Kitchen Innovations Award. Receiving honors this year was the Versa DrawerTM multi-temperature refrigeration system that allows operators to manage a multitude of refrigeration options in one compact unit. It’s the second time Delfield has been recognized since the Kitchen Innovations program began three years ago. The competition was judged by an independent panel of industry experts and recognizes trend-setting kitchen equipment thought to be among the most innovative in the world. The Versa DrawerTM by Delfield and other winners will be showcased with live interactive demonstrations in the Kitchen Innovations Pavilion during the National Restaurant Show in May 2007.
The Versa DrawerTM by Delfield combines four separate refrigeration units, each with individually controlled functions, which allows operators to freeze, refrigerate, chill and thaw in a single unit. All drawers operate independently of the others in any of the four functions, each in its own dedicated compartment to prevent cross contamination. Each unit also features built-in service diagnostics. Combining the drawers into one unit improves space, labor and energy efficiencies and the unit’s functionality makes it adaptable to any menu and daypart.
Delfield received its first Kitchen Innovations award in 2005, the inaugural year for the program, for its refrigeration systems featuring LiquitecTM Technology.
