Lufthansa Technik starts the ETSO (European Technical Standard Order) process for their Induction Cooking Platform. The entire series of numerous and complex tests starts in August, 2017, bringing the option of preparing food freshly on board within reach.

Simultaneously, Lufthansa Technik is planning to create a service bulletin for the installation of the Induction Cooking Platform, with a prime focus on ease of installation.

The unique Induction Cooking Platform offers several advantages for preparing fresh food on board. Depending on the customer's catering requirements, the on-board chef can use a pan, toaster or pot to prepare a culinary masterpiece. The multiple capabilities ensure effective workflows to meet the minimal work space available in typical aircraft galleys. Cooking smells are eliminated with the integrated fume hood and odor filter system. A smart pot containment system both covers and holds the applications securely in place during all phases of preparation and cooking - in particular during turbulence.

The platform fits into any aircraft galley, with dimensions of just

287 x 570 x 269 millimeters (ARINC size 4 and installation variants) and a weight of just 13.5 kilograms. It is offered as an all-in-one solution, including power unit, exhaust fan, special cover and locking systems.

"We are very excited about the Induction Cooking Platform, which has been developed with valuable inputs and feedback from airline catering together with many discerning airline customers. Given the amount of preliminary testing conducted, we are very confident that the ETSO process will be successful and that the product will be ready for installation in early 2018", says Andrew Muirhead, Vice President of Lufthansa Technik's Product Division Original Equipment Innovation. "Furthermore, the development team who created the product is utilizing the many years of expertise in the development of galley products that will no doubt benefit us during the testing process."
