Guildford, UK. Manitowoc is delighted to announce the winner of the LACA Main Event competition to win a brand new Convotherm Mini Mobile combi steamer is Martin Vale High School in Leicestershire. The school has just over 800 pupils aged 11-16 after changing from a middle school to a secondary school in late 2013.

Sue Plunkett, Business Manager and entrant of the competition is absolutely thrilled to be chosen: “It was simply fantastic to be told that we had won – the whole team are utterly delighted! Both myself and our chef, Lisa Sharma, attended LACA and were already very interested in the Convotherm oven, knowing how much it would help our kitchen, so when we saw the competition on the stand we jumped at the chance to enter! I’m so thankful that we’ve won, it will make a huge difference for all the catering staff and we can’t wait for it to be installed.”

ConvothermSue has been at the school for 14 years, and works closely with the catering team. The school kitchen is open for breakfast and lunchtime and provides over 100 hot meals per day for the students. Martin High School still has the original 1950’s kitchen facilities, including the equipment, which means the install of the new Convotherm Mini Mobile combi steamer will bring a new lease of life to the whole catering team. What’s more, Martin High School has just been granted a long-awaited kitchen update which will take place in October. This means that the school’s kitchen will be revamped and, along with the use of the Convotherm Mini Mobile, will enable Sue and her team to provide a more varied, extensive food offering to the pupils.

Lisa Sharma, Head Chef at Martin High School, explains how winning the Convotherm Mini Mobile will benefit the school’s kitchen: “Having a combi steamer in the school kitchen will make a huge difference to the whole catering team, and the food we cook on a daily basis. Not only will we be able to increase our menu choices for the pupils, but it will also allow us more time to develop menus which require more attention. It will really help the running of the kitchen and the quality of the food we are able to offer.”

Steve Hemsil, National Sales Manager Distribution – UK & Ireland at Manitowoc Foodservice UK is thrilled for Sue, Lisa and the hard working team at Martin Vale High School:

“We received more entries than we could have imagined for this competition and whilst every application was as deserving as the other, Sue’s entry just stood out for us. We are thrilled to be able to provide Sue and the catering team at Martin High School with the Convotherm Mini Mobile as we believe that it will benefit them hugely, and will ease the demands of busy school catering. We look forward to supporting the whole team as they get familiar with their new Convotherm steamer.”

With the ability to roast, steam, bake and regenerate; as well as grill and even cook products that would normally require frying, the Convotherm Mini Mobile is the ultimate small footprint solution where space is at a premium, but high quality food and a varied menu is required.
