Metcalfe has announced the unveiling of the Atollspeed AS250T Nano compact oven, which is the first addition to the range since the catering equipment firm took on the UK supply contract.

The oven is said to be the most compact full performance oven in the Atollspeed range, and Metcalfe insists that despite its size it retains good performance.

Metcalfe claims that the AS250T Nano can bake, fry and cook up to 10 times faster than conventional ovens, and all with a baking surface of 225 x 215mm. It is designed for kitchens where space is at a premium.

Adjustable hot air jets aim to achieve good baking and frying results alongside even, quick browning and crisping.

The baking chamber has smooth surfaces and no moveable parts, making it easy to clean and maintenance-free.

Glass-fronted, colour touch screen controls are simple to use, easy to read from a distance, and can be pre-programmed for speed, Metcalfe said.

A special boost function allows the user to bake two or more snacks at the same time. The Nano has a 230V connection and the ovens can also be stacked.
