Chicago, IL - February 10, 2016 - The National Restaurant Association today announces the recipients of the 2016 Kitchen Innovations (KI) Awards, honoring forward-thinking equipment and technologies that increase efficiencies and productivity for back-of-the-house operations and benefit restaurant operators. Each recipient and their product will be showcased in the interactive Kitchen Innovations Pavilion at the 2016 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show, held from May 21-24 in Chicago at McCormick Place.
“KI Award recipients exemplify the advancements from foodservice industry professionals that solve the complex challenges of day-to-day back-of-house operations,” says Lisa Ingram, Convention Chair for NRA Show 2016 and President and CEO of White Castle System, Inc. “Recognition by our esteemed independent panel of judges, who have a wealth of combined institutional knowledge, underscores the true innovation of the award recipients and their contribution to making our foodservice industry even better.”
 
The 2016 KI Award recipients reflect the trends and topics most important to foodservice operators today. The 25 selected innovations address operator concerns from labor, energy and water efficiency to food safety, sanitation, cross-functionality and space-saving. New software and new materials continue to make new solutions possible.
 
The 2016 Kitchen Innovations Award recipients are:
 
Merrychef® eikon® e2s
The Merrychef eikon e2s is a small footprint, high-speed convection/microwave oven with a new, innovative design with cutting-edge technologies. Innovative placement of the magnetrons and use of air-curtain techniques allow a narrow footprint and cool touch surfaces. Offering best-in-class: speed, heat up and cool down times, energy efficiency, noise level, cleanability and cavity-to-footprint ratio.
