CHICAGO, May 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/. Leading consumer appliances manufacturer Midea has dazzled crowds at the 2017 National Restaurant Association (NRA) Foodservice Show with the launch of its new commercial foodservice equipment, highlighting its microwave ovens that are designed to meet every demand.
The four-day trade show, held from May 20 to 23 at the McCormick Center in Chicago, is the largest annual gathering of the restaurant, foodservice and hospitality industry. Midea has unveiled a product lineup that includes seven all-purpose commercial microwaves that are suitable for any restaurant, food establishment or catering businesses.
"Midea understands the essential role of commercial microwaves in all kitchens and the demands of different foodservice businesses; we want to present fast, efficient and reliable solutions that won't disappoint under any circumstances," said Danielle Boils, Branding & Marketing director, Overseas Sales & Marketing Department of Midea's Kitchen Appliances Division.
The two Midea G-Series heavy duty commercial microwaves (the 2,100-watt 2017G1A, and the 1,800-watt 1817G1A) are ideal for kitchens where fast turnaround times and the ability to process large portions of food are a must. The models have a 17-liter oven capacity that accepts one 6-inch (152 mm) food pan, and a double rotating antenna that allows efficient energy distribution and heating.
Their 100 programmable menu items, three cooking stages and five power levels make operation smooth and worry-free, and their stackable design allows them to fit seamlessly in any work space.
Midea also offers two medium duty and two light duty models with different wattage options that are great for fast reheating tasks at food stands, in breakrooms and other quick-serve establishments.
