National Restaurant Association Announces 2015 Kitchen Innovations Award WinnersMarch 5, 2015

Chicago, IL - March 5, 2015 - The National Restaurant Association today announced the recipients of the 2015 Kitchen Innovations® (KI) Awards, which honor equipment and technologies that increase productivity for back of the house operations and benefit restaurant operators. Two of Manitowoc Foodservice brands have received the prestigious recognition.

“As a chef it is great to see the products receiving the 2015 Kitchen Innovations Award all offer significant advancement in back-of-house operations, and demonstrate the extent to which the manufacturing companies are in touch with culinary and key operator challenges,” says John C. Metz, Convention Chair for NRA Show® 2015 and Executive Chef/CEO of Marlow’s Tavern, Aqua Blue, and Sterling Spoon Culinary Management. “Each year our independent panel of judges scans the entire industry to find the products that address and solve these challenges, advancing the entire foodservice industry.”

The 2015 KI Award recipients reflect the trends and topics most important to foodservice operators today. The 23 selected innovations specifically address: water waste reduction and enhanced energy efficiency, increased safety and sanitation, cross-functionality, faster cook-up times, space constraints – even ergonomics and smart technology that learns and adapts to various conditions.

The 2015 Kitchen Innovations Award recipients are:

Frymaster® FilterQuick® with Oil Quality Sensor
Boasting integrated oil-quality sensors, a patented technology that automatically monitors the health of the oil by measuring its total polar materials (TPMs), these gas and electric fryers reduce the cost of frying and improve food quality by taking the guesswork of out oil replacement. 

Merrychef® eikon® e4s with Panini Grill
This semi-automated, non-stick Panini press attachment, easily removable from inside the oven for cleaning, flattens and/or generates grill marks on a range of products, including bread, proteins and vegetables, all while taking advantage of Merrychef’s rapid cook technology which produces high-quality food at speeds up to 15 times faster than conventional methods.

KI Award recipients are chosen by an independent panel of industry experts comprised of internationally recognized food facilities consultants, multi-unit restaurant executives, and design experts. The 2015 Kitchen Innovations Judges are:

  • Dan Bendall, FCSI (Principal, FoodStrategy, Inc.)
  • Martin Cowley (Senior Manager Design and Standards, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts)
  • William Eaton, FFCSI (Chairman of the Board, Cini-Little International)
  • Foster F. Frable Jr.,FCSI (Founding Partner, Clevenger Frable LaVallee)
