  3. GUEST POST: Falcon and Lainox:‘a perfect cookline combination

As of June 20th 2017 Falcon is ‘live’ with Lainox, as the British manufacturer takes over UK distribution of the award-winning combi oven range.

Falcon will supply Lainox combination ovens, parts and detergents, as well as providing technical and customer support. Falcon’s sales and technical teams are already familiar with the product range, as the company has sold a selection of Lainox products for several years.

The Lainox move to Falcon follows the Ali Group’s decision to reposition the equipment brands previously marketed by Dawson. Tim Tindle is managing director of Falcon. He says, "We’ve worked very closely with Lainox in Italy and Dawson here in the UK to ensure the smoothest possible switch over."

“Our familiarity with Lainox will be invaluable in terms of the delivering the continuity of supply that customers demand. Our aim is to protect customers’ interests – in the short-term they should notice no difference. In the mid- to long-term they will benefit from Falcon’s expertise and commitment to customer support.”

Lainox Combination Ovens

Lainox are one of the world's leading manufacturers of combination ovens and the perfect complement to a Falcon horizontal cookline.

Within the Lainox product offering are two main product brands - NABOO and SAPIENS, both of which include standard 1/1 GN capacity models, oversize 2/1 GN models and compact models, which although only 510mm wide have either 2/3 GN or 1/1 GN capacities. All Lainox combis come with the following as standard:

- Automatic washing system
- Detergent Descaler (boiler models only)
- 6, 7 and 10 shelf models have a compartment to hold the detergent & descaler containers
- Handshower (built-in on standard sized models)
- Multipoint core temperature probe
- 2 grid shelves

What are the differences between NABOO and SAPIENS?

NABOO is Lainox's top of the range combi brand, packed full of great features, cooking modes and functions:

- 10" colour HD touch screen controls
- Configurable home screen which allows the user to save their most popular recipes to the home screen for faster access
- Unlimited recipe storage
- Just in Time and Multilevel cooking modes allow the oven to be operating at a fuller capacity more often
- Intelligent oven recognition - this is where the oven identifies the recipes that can be cooked at the same parameters currently being used for a multilevel or just in time programme
- Wifi connectivity - upload recipes from your pc or tablet, download recipes, videos and software updates from an online chef's portal, remote servicing and fault diagnosis and ease of recipe sharing across multiple location

SAPIENS models are aimed at users who prefer a more hands-on approach to combi oven cooking, with a more basic requirement form the oven:

- Manual controls
- 99 recipe storage
- Numeric keypad for ease of accessing saved recipe

Compact Models

At only 510mm wide, compact combis are ideal for kitchens who previously didn't have the space or perhaps the demand to justify the purchase of a combination oven. These units fit into the smallest of kitchens and allow any caterer to experience the benefits of combi oven cooking for themselves. Compact models are available in either NABOO or SAPIENS brands.

Accessories: Lainox have developed a comprehensive range of accessories to help you get the very most from your combination oven. These include:

- Stands
- Condenser Hoods
- Banqueting Equipment
- Special trays & containers
- Cleaning chemicals
