Why should I buy the BM3W?
The BM3W is a wet heat bain marie that is designed to accommodate 3 x 1/4 size gastronorm stainless steel dishes. This counter top bain marie is supplied as a base unit only, the gastronorm pans and lids are sold separately should the business require them. This brings a degree of flexibility because, although a bain marie itself may need to be replaced, the gastronorm dishes themselves may already be in house. The appliance accommodates 3 x 150mm deep containers of gastronorm size 1/4. 1/4GN dishes have dimensions of 265mm x 163mm and a capacity of 3.8 litres each. The gastronorm lids are available as plain or notched and a serving ladle is also available as an accessory. Both the pans and lids are manufactured from stainless steel.
Essentially, a wet heat bain marie is a water bath in which the food is gently and steadily heated to the required temperature. Wet heat bains marie provide a moist environment and are particularly good for emulsifying delicate butter sauces like hollandaise and beurre blanc, without curdling them. They will also melt chocolate and make custards. Bains marie generally are ideal for holding sauces, gravies and many types of pre cooked foods such as soups, pasta sauces, peas, baked beans, haricots, curry sauces and even porridge. Bains marie become indispensable when preparing and batching up large quantities of foodstuffs ready for the day’s business. They will safely hold pre cooked foods at the required temperature for up to 2 hours without loss of flavour or texture. The unit features an adjustable thermostatic temperature control. The unit is straightforward in operation: add water to the bath, about 10mm depth, switch on and allow the unit to warm up for 20 minutes; set the temperature control to the desired level then add the hot food to the gastronorm dishes. It’s important to make sure that sufficient water immerses the bath. There is a front drain tap for easy draining. Bains marie are not cookers and are intended to retain temperature rather than physically cook foodstuffs.
Because of these benefits, bains marie are fantastic for hot buffet displays and self service counters; hospitality event specialists and other mobile caterers consider them indispensable. The low power rating means bains marie are plug in appliances; the BM3W has a 1kW rating and a plug is ready fitted. The overall dimensions of the unit are 290mm(h) x 300mm(w) x 600mm(d). It is a robust and compact appliance and sits neatly on a work surface; anti slip nitrile rubber feet are fitted. The body of the appliance is constructed from high grade 430 stainless steel, in up to 0.8mm thicknesses for extra strength and durability. Lincat, the UK manufacturer, offer a whole range of bains marie in different sizes and GN configurations. Round pot bains marie are also available; these have a capacity of 4.5 litres, or 8 pints.
The BM3W is part of Lincat’s Silverlink 600 range of catering equipment which all have the same depth of 600mm; this modularity makes custom building your own kitchen layout much simpler.
