Get The Most Out Of Your Fagor 700 Range Cooking Line

Posted by: Neil Willis |  Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Planning and sourcing the most appropriate Fagor cooking equipment for a commercial kitchen in a restaurant or cafe seating 40 people.

For the chef, the most important aspect is that their equipment offers the best performance possible while optimising on space. The Fagor 700 range cooking block is the most used in this type of installation, thanks to its capacity and the possibilities it has to offer.

In kitchens with a small surface area the best solution is to design a wall cooking block (that reduces the depth of the machines), and complementing the equipment with a combi oven. It is advisable to install the block and the combi oven in line so that the same extraction hood, when fitted can be used for the whole line of equipment. It is also a good idea to use the lower zones of the block for storing pots, pans, etc.

The kitchen block equipment should be installed depending on the dishes to be offered in the menu. Consequently, different options may be suggested when mounting the block:

The 700 Range from Fagor Industrial offers excellent features and obtains high levels of performance in more reduced spaces. It is the perfect solution for businesses with more limited space.

The modular gas cookers in the Fagor 700 Series may be fitted with open burners, ovens, fry-tops, hotplates, pasta cookers, barbecues, cooking pots, fryers, bain-marie and Bratt pans, combined in different ways to meet the needs of each customer. Made of stainless steel, the cookers in this range have tilted control panels to provide better access to the buttons and controls on the front of the machine, in addition to built-in handles and grease collection trays. The equipment in the 700 Series is formed by machines with the highest operating powers on the market, with excellent performance and recovery ratios.

1. Cooker with 4 burners


This unit is highly versatile as it offers the possibility of preparing soup, sauces, stews and pulses in pots and casseroles, having them ready for serving at a later stage, as well as allowing the preparation of scrambled eggs and fried food ready for immediate serving. The size of the burner grills permits the use of cooking pots and pans of up to 32 cm in diameter, with capacities of up to 24 litres:

Guideline Capacity

  • A 5.25 kW Fagor burner brings 13 litres of water to boil in 32 minutes.
  • It produces 40 portions of soup (330 ml/portion) in 1 hour.

  • A 6.90 kW Fagor burner brings an 18 litres pot of water to boil in 28 minutes.
  • It produces 54 portions of soup (330 ml/portion) in 50 minutes.

2. Cooker with 4 burners and oven


In addition to the features offered by a four-burner hob, we have a static oven, with a capacity for GN-2/1 trays and with thermostatic control. The oven enables the preparation of roasts, fish, pastries, etc.

Guideline Capacity

  • A GN-2/1 tray has capacity for 12 chickens, so that 12 whole chickens (48 portions) can be roasted in the oven in this kitchen in one hour.

3. Fry-top


The fry-top roasting plate can be made with a flat surface, or a half-grooved surface to give a special finish to roast meats and fish. The plate from one module from the 700 range has an area of 38 dm2 (69 x 55 cm) with a heating-up time (roasting temperature of 300 °C) of 40 minutes.

The 700 Series fry-tops have stainless steel burners with an ignition pilot light, and include a “Maximum-Mínimum” type valve to control the burner flame and have thermostatic control of the plate temperature: 120°C - 310°C.

Guideline Capacity

  • 24 fillet steaks or hamburgers weighing 200 grams each in 7.5 minutes.

4. Barbecue Char Grills


One option in many restaurants is to substitute the grooved plate with a barbecue for roasting braised meat. The half module grill from the 700 range has a surface area of 32 x 55 cm.

The grill can be made from cast iron, for those who like traditional roasting, or in stainless steel, with grooves to collect the roasting fats and to prevent them dripping onto the embers.

In the 700 Series barbecues, the volcanic stones are heated using stainless steel tubular pipes. This range also has a removable grease collection tray and roasting grill with handles to allow it to be raised.

Guideline Capacity

  • 12 x 200 g fillet steaks or hamburgers in 7.5 minutes.

5. Pasta cooker


The pasta cooker is a highly popular piece of equipment in many regions or countries. The tub takes different sized baskets (1/1, 1/2, 1/6) for cooking different types of pasta (macaroni, cannelloni, spaghetti...). The tub is filled with water through a valve, and the cooking temperature is controlled by thermostat.

6. Deep Fryer


A 15 litre fryer, with one basket for the whole vat or two half baskets, allows the quick preparation of various fried foods, which may form part of the starter dishes on the menu. Each vat from the 700 range has a capacity of 15 litres of oil and the baskets can hold 3 kg of product (large basket) or 1.5 kg (small basket).

The 700 Series pasta cookers consist of an AISI-316 stainless steel vat. Available with tubular burner, the cookers have a pilot light ignition system and a safety thermocouple, thermostatic temperature control and a tap for filling the vat.

Guideline Capacity

20 kg of chips in one hour

7. Bain Marie


This element, equipped with small Gastronorm serving containers can be used to keep previously prepared sauces and garnishes warm ready for serving with the main course meat and fish dishes

The 700 Series bain-marie has a vat designed to take 100 mm deep GN trays, built-in supporting crossbars, perforated base divider, water inlet solenoid valve and overflow drainage system.

8. Direct flame pan


This machine is installed when the same dish is cooked for a large number of diners: soups, stews, purées, etc. The direct or indirect heating (over bain marie) versions are selected depending on the usual requirements of the business. The cooking pot in the 700 range contains 80 litres of water, taking approximately 50 minutes to reach the boil and with a cooking time of 10 minutes.

The cooking pots in the 700 Series have a counterbalanced hinged lid, a stainless steel burner controlled by a safety valve, a water inlet solenoid valve, hot or cold water selector switch and a pot drainage tap. This range is available in various models to suit the requirements of each customer.

Guideline Capacity

  • 240 portions of soup (330 ml/portion) in one hour.

9. Tilting Bratt Pan


As with the cooking pot, this appliance is intended for use when preparing the same meal for a large number of diners. The tilting Bratt pan in the 700 range has a water inlet tap and a thermostatic temperature control up to 315°C.

It can also hold up to 50 litres of water and can be used as a normal cooking pot as the surface area of the pot is 38 dm2 (the same size as the fry-top).

The 700 Series Bratt pans have a counterbalanced hinged lid and include a thermostat for the control of the temperature between 50°C and 315°C. The vat is designed in stainless steel, is raised by a lever and filled by the action of a solenoid valve.

Guideline Capacity

  • 280 fried eggs in one hour.

10. Combi Ovens


The combined oven is the perfect accessory for the cooking block. It allows different foods to be cooked in short time periods at the same time. It can be used for all types of meat and fish, pulses, vegetables and potatoes, roasted or steamed, and for preparing desserts.

In some cases it may be advisable to complement the oven with a chill blaster (Cook & Chill equipment) to prepare the weekend’s menus in advance and to have dishes already prepared.

Guideline Capacity

  • 72 portions of chicken in 40 minutes, using 3 trays with 6 chickens on each one (1 chicken = 4 meals).

Blue Seal S Line Combi Steamer Ovens

Posted by: Neil Willis |  Thursday, September 22, 2011



The new BlueSeal S Line Combi is the effective choice. With a variety of capacity options and exciting new functionality it delivers speed, reliability and everyday value. That’s why the new range shows the way and why the S Line is the right option for hundreds of cafes, bistros and restaurants.




Power, function, reliability. The new S Line combination steamers unite these strengths to deliver an exceptional performance in the most demanding of cooking environments. S Line also offers a carefully developed lineup, with different capacity models and a list of features to suit a diverse selection of individual cooking applications. So, when it comes time to make the move, the choice is easy.


The S Line : It’s the Smart choice.




A professional oven built with meticulous workmanship. There are countless construction and functional choices that make S Line special; the fully moulded chamber has wide radius corners for optimized air flow and ease of cleaning; the hand-held shower, the double glazed door with hinged inner glass and generous air gap which protects the operator from excessive heat; the ergonomic handle that allows you to open the oven door even when your hands are full; the new seal system for floor models which allows the oven to operate without heat dispersion even when the trolley os not inside (preheating); the practical external probe; the chamber lighting inside the door.


At the heart: Core construction


Each oven is constructed from stainless steel and is moulded with completely round edges to soften aesthetical impact and ensure cleaning is as effortless as possible. Built to last, the ovens are also easy to access and maintain. The cool-totouch double glass door has a hinged inner glass for easy cleaning and an ergonomic handle allowing for left or right hand operation. The front control panel is easily available should any maintenance be required.


A new movement: Bi-directional fan


Even, reliable air circulation in the oven chamber is a major factor when it comes to delivering consistent results. The oven fan of the S Line changes direction, this prevents hot and cold zones within the chamber and eliminates the possibility of uneven cooking.  


Complete control: Two-speed fan


A two-speed fan is included as standard. The fan control is located on the main board so the speed can be altered with a simple touch of a button. 


The end to guesswork: Core temperature probe


The plug-in core probe delivers accurate cooking control and provides a high level of flexibility depending on the products. Estimating when food is ready becomes a thing of the past. When cooking hearty foods such as roasts or lasagne simply use the 3mm probe. For more delicate or portioned food such as grilled fish, creme caramel or cooking sous vide simply unplug the 3mm probe and plug in an optional 1mm probe. This practice is the best way to protect food from unnecessary damage and ensure consistent results.


Cool as: Automatic venting system


Jumping from meal to meal is not without its complications. A rapid cooldown system substantially reduces the time spent waiting for a cooler oven after a higher temperature has recently been used. This automatic feature releases any unwanted heat from within the oven chamber quickly and efficiently so the correct heat is always readily available.


H²go:  Autoclima system


The autoclima humidity control system uses the automatic vent to remove unwanted moisture within the oven chamber. This process ensures food does not deteriorate from excessive moisture. For instance, meringue is dry and crispy and semi-dried tomatoes are dehydrated but not stewed.


Easy does it: Programme options


There are a massive range of programmes that the modern chef can choose from, every one of the 99 programme options delivering simplicity and precision. The S Line offers standard 4 stage cooking and 92 tested cooking programmes that operate with minimal staff input.


Clear as day cooking: Cycle guides


For an intuitive, user-friendly cooking experience the S Line control panel has an LED system displaying a set or active cycle. Each cooking phase is clearly displayed and readily identifiable to avoid confusion amongst the hustle and bustle of the modern kitchen.




When time equals money, cleaning duties can drain valuable resources from the modern kitchen. That’s why the S Line has some standard cleaning features that enable businesses to maintain high standards without adding extra effort. As equipment is maintained with care and frequency the long-term benefits these features provide are considerable.


The difference of design


Cleaning convenience was a key factor when considering the design of the S Line during the research and development phase. The double-glazed door has hinged inner glass for easy cleaning. The hinged fan cover also allows for easy access, and the removable tray runners deliver the space to move. A major benefit is that the heat and wear-resistant silicon door seal is easy to remove so daily cleaning can be carried out with the minimum of fuss and bother. Additionally, a flexible mount shower kit with stainless steel hose can be conveniently applied.


Semi-automatic wash programme (standard)


This semi-automatic feature comes as standard in all S Line ovens, a remarkable feature for such an inexpensive range. For brilliant results it’s simply a matter of selecting the cleaning cycle, employing a cleaning agent and standing back to let the oven clean itself. Rinse out the oven with the shower hose and you’ll be away laughing.


Automatic wash system (optional)


There is also an optional fully integrated automatic cleaning system that is built into the oven cavity. There are three wash programmes to choose from that can remove any kind of dirtwithout any extra work required. Simply connect the cleaning chemical and choose from ‘soft’,‘medium’ or ‘hard’ according to the work required.




Investing in the right oven is important.  Being able to use it easily is essential. The S Line has developed an easy-to-use electronic control board to keep the task at hand simple. With a straightforward selection for different cooking modes (convection, steam, combination, reheating) all your options are within arms reach.


The Blue Seal S Line offers the cooking / baking choice of convection. The convection fan system is ideal for general roasting of meats, vegetables and the baking of pastries, cakes, bake off, frozen

doughs and par bake doughs. Products can be cooked at temperatures between 30°C - 300°C with heat distributed evenly within the oven via the enhanced convection fan system. This enables food to be cooked at lower temperatures than the more traditional static oven methods.


Steam cooking is highly valued for a number of reasons, not the least being that it can deliver food that retains a large percentage of its natural nutritional value.  This cooking method is also popular for it’s simplicity and ease of use. Delicate foods can be cooked without fear of damage and serving is quick and uncomplicated.


The S Line can provide simultaneous cooking of a range of different dishes without any exchange of flavours. Steaming (100°C). An even, thorough heat that can be easily reached (and maintained), this cooking method delivers food that looks good and tastes even better.


Steaming at low temperature (30/80°C). Low temperature steam produces healthy, light and naturally flavoursome food, so it’s no wonder that this approach is so popular with many diners.


Steam and vacuum-packing (60/90°C) & needle probe. Kitchens are increasingly using vacuum-packed products, which markedly reduce food weight loss, reduces the need for seasoning and increases dish life (up to 25 days if food is chilled and correctly stored). The needle probe for vacuum cooking is also ideal for measuring the temperature of the food outside the oven. Forced steaming (130°C). Prevents temperature drops when cooking large quantities of frozen products and reduces cooking for high starch products, shellfish etc.





Sometimes, the best of both worlds can be achieved with a simple push of a button. Combi-cooking, the mix of convection and steam, creates results of exceptional quality.


Ideal for a la carte restaurants the inclusion of steam increases the transfer of heat to food reducing

cooking times. The S Line creates new opportunities for kitchens when it comes to combicooking. Food can be delivered on time… and to the highest standard of taste.


Meal preparation. The combi-mode is especially suited for food with a high moisture-content (stews,

sauces, meatballs, braised dishes etc) or large singular pieces. Roast beef, for example, can be prepared using the combi mode at a low temperature between 60 and 90°C.


The cooked meat remains tender and succulent by retaining its natural juices, an often-difficult task using other forms of cooking.




For large groups of diners, preparation is vital. Organising specific foods before service ensures meals can be delivered with the minimum of fuss. However kitchen appliances need to be of a high standard to ensure the maximum quality. The S Line delivers this standard.


Reheating and buffet meals.


The banqueting system can deliver servings in oven dishes, trays or plates. Using the regeneration function meals can be reheated cleanly and efficiently without drying out.


Large banqueting events.


The banqueting system of the S Line means large functions and events can be catered for irrespective of location. With the help of plated trolleys the S Line can reheat a meal quickly and have it perfectly regenerated, and presented, ready for serving despite the distance from kitchens or other preparation facilities.


Achieving optimal results.


The S Line needle probe accurately monitors temperature across every food category. With the aid of thermal covers transport and holding of food can be carried out under the best possible conditions, ensuring a final outcome that is of an extremely high quality.


Multitasking Combination Ovens. The S Line of combination steamers can load a multiple of cooking products from proteins, starches and liquids providing they are cooked, roasted, sautéed and steamed on the correct cooking mode and temperature. This process occurs with no flavour transfer.


The 9 and 14 models.


A la carte (cook to order) undoubtably demands the flexibility to cook many food types quickly. The all new 9 and 14 tray are ideal for use during mis en plus due to the industry standard gastronorm loading system and the additional rack runners provide extra flexibility.


The new S Line combines proven performance with the latest enhancement. The E14CSD makes the daily tasks of preparation and meal service a more satisfying experience.


The 20 model.


The S Line 20 model offers 20 x 1/1GN or 10 x 2/1GN tray capacity. This capacity within an overall oven height of 1090mm makes the machine perfect for plated and bulk regeneration applications such as conference centres and international hotels. With an increased capacity for loading the 20 tray models are also ideally suited for speciality chicken cooking ovens


The S Line combi steamers provide excellent solutions for the roasting of whole chickens and chicken pieces on the bone. For convenience stores, quick service restaurants, C store, independent supermarkets and take-away outlets.


The 21 model.


The overall dimensions of the 21 model offers considerable footprint advantages over its competition. The combined use of additional roll-in trolleys and smaller footprint enable considerable capacity to be generated from the 21 model footprint.


The 40 model.


This range of combi steamers is ideally suited to meal distribution and regeneration applications. When consistent quality is mandatory, the S Line 40 leaves no doubt.


Stack the deck in your favour. To guarantee even more power and versatility in the kitchen the Blue Seal S Line series has units designed to be easily stackable. This feature allows the busy chef the chance to get more from his space, more from his kitchen. And it does so without using unnecessary space.

Posted by: Neil Willis |  Wednesday, August 11, 2010
Fagor Industrial presents a new generation of innovative ovens that are easy to use and intuitive: the new Visual Ovens, manufactured to respond to the needs of all chefs. The following characteristics are among the advantages of this new and innovative range of ovens: ergonomics, hygiene and perfect results thanks to the incorporation of state-of-the-art electronics. All of this together means you save time and money.

Five different sizes are available for the three model series: Visual Plus, Visual and Concept. From six 1/1 GN levels up to twenty 2/1 GN levels Each model series includes electric and gas versions.

The user can use the “Menu” button to choose from various other options: wash, thermal stop, multi-tray timer, delta value change (multi-point probe), delayed programming, automatic blocking, humidity control, three speeds...

When the oven is turned on, it is in manual mode, with a choice of “Fagor Cooking” mode (your own recipes or those recommended by Fagor) or “Fagor Easy” mode, specially designed to make cooking easy: you simply choose the cooking method, temperature and time.

The oven’s HACCP can be downloaded via a standard USB connection and it can also be programmed externally.

Like the Visual Plus ovens, these ovens produce steam in a boiler that is separate from the cooking chamber.
The Visual ovens are equipped with a temperature core probe and a retractable shower.

In this series, cooking controls are located on a panel that includes a screen and push-buttons for selecting and confirming options. The user can easily choose the options that appear on the screen and programme the oven accordingly.

The user can easily choose the options that appear on the screen or displays, and programme the oven accordingly. The new generation of ovens can be easily serviced without having to remove any exterior panels. The user can easily verify the correct functioning of all the oven’s components thanks to technical service help system.
