DHMC - Hot Food Holding


DHMC - Hot Food Holding

The challenge for hot food storage has always been how to maintain heated food at required temperatures without the appearance and quality of the food deteriorating or more importantly compromising food taste and quality.

Traditional heated food storage results in evaporation of moisture from the food, which can cause shrinking and dryness. As well as limiting the amount of time the food can be kept in hot food storage, also resulting in food wastage if food is kept in storage for too long.

Uniquely with the Porkka DHMC Heated Food Storage system, hot food storage times can be greatly extended, without any noticeable loss of moisture or food core temperatures. Thus enabling stored foods to be served to the same quality, taste, appearance, texture and nutritional value as when they first where placed into this remarkable unit .

Since this Products launch in 2008 the D.H.M.C. has been purchased by the M.O.D. for use both in the UK & high conflict regions such as Afghanistan.

Further UK Public Sectors have purchased this unit which culminated with the Porkka D.H.M.C. being awarded an ‘Innovation Award’ by L.A.C.A. (Local Authorities Catering Association) .

Within the Private Sector this unit has also been widely specified, and is currently in use in the UK Leisure & Retail Industry as well as major UK Sporting Venues & Stadia with major Hotel Groups using, or considering this counter as their main hot food holding unit.

Ice Machines


Ice Machines

Commercial ice making machines are essential equipment for just about any business serving cold drinks to the public such as hotels, bars, cafés and restaurants. A commercial ice making machine needs to produce ice cubes quickly and in a form which is immediately ready to put into ice buckets or drinks. Commercial ice making machines also need to be extremely hygienic and so need to be able to use clean water straight from the mains.

There are three main categories of commercial ice making machine to suit different types of application. Porkka offers a variety of commercial ice making machines, including ice cube machines, ice flake machines, and vertical plate cubers. If the quantity of ice required is large, you may also need an ice cube storage bin to place cubes into ready for use. This page describes what each type of commercial ice making machine is most suitable for and gives details of the Porkka products available in each category.

The smallest is the KL21 which can make up to 1110 cubes per day (about 20kg of ice) and is just 587mm high and 345mm wide. The largest is the KL301 which makes up to 14550 cubes per day (about 262kg of ice) and is 774mm high and 960mm wide. For even larger ice requirements the KL301 and KL171 machines are stackable and are designed to sit on storage bins, allowing large quantities of ice to be made in advance. 
  • Vertical Plate Cubers - There are four vertical plate cubers in the Porkka range. The smallest is the KV150 which can make 12,090 cubes per day and is just 675mm high.
