Pizza equipment specialist Linda Lewis Kitchens (LLK) has announced that it is stocking the ‘Donatello’ pizza oven, the newest offering from Italian brand Cuppone.
The oven has been constructed to meet the needs of gastro pubs, restaurants and takeaways, with a wide range of features delivering improved energy efficiency and ultra-fast cooking times.
It comes in four deck sizes that may be stacked to save space.
In addition to differentiated top and bottom heating elements and a stone-cooking base that guarantees authentic Italian cooking, Donatello features a new heat generation system. The system enables quick recovery times while opening and closing the oven, making it ideal for busy kitchens.
Donatello’s new digital control system also has the ability to individually set the temperature of the chamber and the power of the two heating elements with a pre-programmable feature. This ensures total control of the oven and guarantees it runs to its maximum energy efficiency capacity.
LLK’s MD, Linda Lewis, said the Donatello was an important addition to the Oldham-based company’s range.
“Cooking pizza in just 3-6 minutes, this model is ideal for any gastro pub, restaurant or takeaway wanting to deliver authentic tasting pizzas to their customers quickly, without compromising on flavour and quality,” she said.
“The pizza industry is now worth £1.85 billion and by 2016 it is expected to have grown by a further 22%. Hence, it is vital that any establishment wanting to improve their pizza offering invests in equipment that can accommodate such growth in demand.”
Lewis added that the versatility of the oven — it can also cook baked potatoes, chicken and pasta dishes — meant it was ideal for dealers selling into pubs and takeaways that want to make a “sensible investment”.
