Lufthansa Technik’s Induction Cooking Platform begins   series production
– Rice cooker and toaster modules available for integration

Series production of Lufthansa Technik’s Induction Cooking Platform  is now cleared for takeoff. Effective immediately, fresh food can be  prepared on board quickly, safely, cleanly and economically. From the perfect fried egg to a sizzling rib-eye steak, the sky’s the limit  when it comes to cooking on board. 

The platform fits into any aircraft galley, with dimensions of just  570 x 269 x 4 millimeters (ARINC size 4 and installation variants)  and a weight of just 13.5 kilograms. It is being offered as an  all-in-one solution, including power unit, exhaust fan and special  cover and locking systems to ensure that pots and pans remain in  place even during turbulence.

The option of preparing food freshly on board was a great attraction  from the very beginning when it was presented at Aircraft Interiors  Expo 2016 as a product idea in conjunction with the Ulm,  Germany-based company hs2 engineering GmbH. Interest among VIP  customers and commercial airlines was strengthened by the nomination  of the solution as a finalist for the Crystal Cabin Award. 

“Conversations with potential customers, flight attendants and cooks  enabled us to adapt the cooking platform precisely to users’ needs.  We are now launching this product on the market,” says Miriam  Fontius, the project manager at Lufthansa Technik’s Original  Equipment Innovation division who is in charge of this project. “A  number of applications enable not only cooking with pots and pans,  but also the use of a special rice cooker with different settings and a toaster.”

Miriam Fontius and Peter Huber, Head of Production at hs2  engineering, will be at the Aircraft Interiors Expo from 4 – 6 April  at Lufthansa Technik’s stand (Hall 6, Booth 6B80).

This is also an opportunity to see the Induction Cooking Platform in  person and sample its “results”.
