Sizzling news from Lufthansa Technik


You may remember Lufthansa Technik’s Induction Cooking Platform as a finalist in last year’s Crystal Cabin Awards. While the design did not win an award, it has been successful in being approved for series production, enabling anything from fried eggs to a sizzling rib-eye steaks to be cooked on board an aircraft.

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

“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,” stated 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.”
