New for Spring 2019, 5 Star launch the Catering System Case range. This 'Business-in a-Box' concept provides a one-stop shop for companies requiring a professional catering system, all housed in rugged road cases. The range kicks off with a selection of custom-built catering setups and will be added to in the coming months. Based around the popular Heavy Industrial specification, the case design for these catering systems all share the same basic external dimensions and layout, whilst internally are suited to the individual appliance/catering type. All feature a removable front cover and a top lid, the latter converting into a useful stand-alone table. Highly recommended is the slip-over protective cover, which will help to keep the cases looking in great condition.
The cases are finished in a durable high-pressure laminate which is available in a range of ten exterior colours.
These Catering Case Systems are available to buy direct on our webshop.
Double Slush Machine
You've probably seen these slush machines in many local stores, vending flavoured crushed-ice drinks. Slush machines are extremely popular and the marketplace is expanding at a terrific rate. The profit percentage is very high on slush so with a simple machine in the right location you and your customers can benefit massively. Well, 5 Star has added a slush machine to its catering system range. This 'Blue Ice' double-vend machine is ideal for medium to high yield outputs and will be a big hit at village fetes, corporate functions, weddings and much more.
The key feature of the Slush Machine system is the way it's mounted in the case. Due to the weight of the machine, it wouldn't be particularly easy to remove it from a cupboard and place on the worktop. So, 5 Star's design team added a special feature...a motorised lift table which raises the slush machine up to the desired height. The system comes with both infra-red remote control and a manual override switch.
Storage is provided for by 2 x 60 litre and 1 x 21 litre removable Euro crate plastic containers, as well as two small drawers for accessories and utensils and a handy cupboard. Four heavy-duty locking casters are fitted to the base of the case.
Hot Dog Machine
The heart of this catering system is a 9 roller hotdog warmer for heating pre-cooked sausages. Featuring stainless steel rollers for durable & easy to clean use. A heavy duty motor drives the rollers and is split into two heated zones, each with its own temperature control and overall heating lamp. Power supply 220v 50Hz - 2000 watt. Also included is a built-in 800 watt microwave oven to defrost frozen sausages to assist with the speed of warming the hotdogs.
During transportation the hotdog machine is housed in a cupboard for protection, whilst the microwave is built-in. The hotdog machine can be placed anywhere on the worktop. A single power connection is provided by PowerCon/13A plug (included). Plenty of storage is provided for by 2 x 60 litre and 1 x 21 litre removable Euro crate plastic containers, as well as two small drawers for accessories and utensils and a handy cupboard. Four heavy-duty locking casters are fitted to the base of the case.
Candy Floss (Cotton Candy) Machine
A popular addition to any party, village fete or corporate catering function.
Based around a built-in candy floss machine, this system is similar to other catering cases in the range, with external dimensions and layout being exactly the same, ensuring a modular design.
This case features a clear acrylic panel behind the worktop which gives a visible 'window' to the candy floss making.
Storage space for the candy sugars, sticks and other accessories is by means of three removable crates, two fixed drawers and a cupboard.
Another welcomed addition to any mobile catering business is the popcorn machine system case.
As with the hotdog machine case, the popcorn maker is housed in a cupboard for transportation and placed on the worktop for use. Mains power to the case is by a PowerCon/13A connector fitted to a recessed dish.
The machine features a heated, stainless steel/Teflon pan with rotating agitator. A heated bed and lamp keep the popcorn warm.
Again, storage space for the popcorn kernels, seasoning and other accessories is by means of three removable crates, two fixed drawers and a cupboard.
Hot Drinks Machine
A new addition to the catering systems is this Coffee/Drinks Machine case.
As with the all the other catering system cases, the overall dimensions and general layout is the same. The drinks machine is a high-quality Jura 6 unit and is housed in a pull-out tray for transportation and placed on the worktop for use.
Here is a link to the Jura website for this drinks machine...
For use, simply pull out the tray, remove the machine and place on the worktop in the preferred position. Again, storage space for the cups, coffee beans, spoons and other accessories is by means of three removable crates, two fixed drawers and a cupboard with three shelves. Mains power to the case is by a PowerCon/13A connector fitted to a recessed dish.
