Roband’s Grill Sheets “clean up” at The Old Fisherman, Terrigal

Ben & Sabina Kelley recently bought The Old Fisherman at Terrigal Beach situated on the beautiful NSW Central Coast in August 2014. Overlooking the surf beach at Terrigal, The Old Fisherman specializes in its’ famous fish and chips, but also offers a full seafood menu for al-fresco dining or takeaway.

Ben & Sabina have many years of experience and success in cooking and serving seafood in various locations around NSW, so taking on the challenge to modernise and improve this 35 year old business is a “labour of love”, according to Ben, “we are renovating the shop in stages, every day is an improvement”.

Ben & Sabina are keen users of the Roband range of products including Grill Stations, Salamanders, and Austheat electric fryers. They recently discovered the benefits of the Roband Grill Sheets on the GSA815 Grill Station.

The Roband Grill Sheets are removable PTFE sheets fitted to the grill station with a specially designed retainer clip. Ben & Sabina use the Roband Grill Sheets for grilling fish, octopus, and even cooking bacon & eggs. “The Grill Sheets are especially useful when cooking grilled fish and seafood with sauces. The sauces tend to cause the hot plates to get dirty, and make them difficult to clean”, Ben claimed, “it slows production, and requires constant cleaning maintenance”, he added. “We don’t have time to slow down in summer, on good days we have three queues, twenty deep, and speed and quality are key!”

The Roband Grill Sheets provide lots of advantages to Ben & Sabina, the top 4 are:

  1. Allow higher production as cleaning is minimal
  2. Cleaning is only a quick wipe of the sheets with a towel
  3. Reduces cooking oil usage (massively)
  4. Keeps the product always looking clean and high quality

The Old Fisherman is open from 11am to 8pm daily and 364 days per year, so the Roband GAS815 is on all that time, it never stops working. “The Roband Grill Sheets have made a huge difference to our operation, cooking grilled seafood must be high quality, and we get our best results with the grill sheets”, Ben stated. “We keep the sheets clean as we cook with a quick towel wipe after each meal, and do a thorough wash daily”.

Grill Station and Grill Sheet Product Overview

The Roband Grill Station range is designed and manufactured in Sydney, Australia and sets the benchmark for commercial contact grills. Used in a variety of applications that include toasting sandwiches, paninis and focaccias as well as beautifully searing and grilling meat, seafood and poultry, it truly is a versatile machine and a great addition to any commercial kitchen. The Roband Grill Sheets are replaceable non-stick (PTFE) sheets that are reusable and economical and are held in place with a customised retainer clip. The Grill Sheets have been created exclusively for the Roband Grill Station to help keep machines clean, well presented and prevent food from sticking during the cooking process.
