(HALL 3, STAND 212 MARCH 15, 2019) – Alto-Shaam, the global manufacturer of commercial ovens for foodservice and retail operations, will be exhibiting its new range of Vector Multi-Cook ovens at Internorga, as well as providing the European launch of its new Rotisserie oven with unique self-cleaning capability.
The Multi-Cook ovens comprise the ‘H’ and the ‘F’ series: the compact Vector H-Series countertop model has a 533mm footprint and ventless operation. It is available with two, three or four oven chambers; the larger Vector F-Series three- and four-chamber ovens can accommodate both GN 2/1 and GN 1/1 pans and have the ability to combine oven chambers to cook taller food items such as turkeys or roasts. They can cook by time or using a food temperature probe.
All of the models in the H- and F-Series feature Alto-Shaam’s Structured Air Technology, developed in partnership with Appliance Innovation. The patented technology enables high velocity, focused heat for faster, more even cooking. Operators can control the temperature, fan speed and time in each individual oven chamber for maximum flexibility, allowing them to simultaneously cook a variety of menu items with no flavour transfer. They can cook twice as much food up to two-times faster than their traditional counterparts.
Alto-Shaam’s new Rotisserie oven, receiving its European debut at Internorga, features an automatic grease collection system, a self-cleaning cycle, and aesthetic design. The new ovens are designed to be very safe and easy to use, and save significant time and labour costs for deli and foodservice operators. Ideal for front-of-house operations, a series of innovations enable them to consume a fifth less energy in the cooking process, and more than a third less water than competitive models in cleaning.
With a cooking capacity of 21 chickens, weighing 3-1/2 pounds each, the oven cooks each load faster while using 20 percent less electricity. Convection heat combined with radiant heat provides even cooking and uniform browning. A bespoke, double-pane glass door keeps heat in the oven and is cool to the touch outside the oven, thus further enhancing operator safety.
All Alto-Shaam ovens are very simple and intuitive to programme and use, with touchscreen control, and require little or no operator training. This flexibility will be evidenced on-stand by a regular programme of live cooking demonstrations.
Brian Jahnke, vice president of business development in Europe, says Alto-Shaam’s ovens are designed to deliver the greatest flexibility and unrivalled cooking performance: “The focus on quality, innovation and true thought-leadership has enabled us to develop a range of foodservice equipment solutions that are genuinely world-class, enabling our customers to cook and serve their food exactly how they want it – when they want it.”
