Alfa Pro, the Italian manufacturer of commercial pizza ovens, has updated its portfolio with the relaunch of two ovens that makes them suitable for outdoor use.
The updated ‘Quattro Pro’ and the larger ‘Quick’ ovens have the option of a natural wood-fired cooking method. Heavy-duty castors also enable both ovens to be positioned outside, in a garden, terrace or alfresco cooking area during the warmer summer months, and moved into the kitchen for the winter.
Supplied exclusively to the UK by Jestic Foodservice Equipment, the Alfa Pro portfolio includes sizes from countertop to larger freestanding units, and a choice of natural gas, hybrid and a wood-fired design.
The Quattro Pro has a capacity of up to 70 pizzas per hour and a light weight design which makes it suitable for outdoor events or mobile business.
For those looking for mobile, wood-fired pizzas ovens, the Alfa Pro Quick is available as a countertop version for mobile trucks, or on a stand with castors for static sites. It has a capacity of 110 pizzas per hour, and a cook time from 2 minutes.
Both the Quattro Pro and the Quick feature an 8cm thick refectory floor, which retains and evenly distributes the heat throughout the cooking chamber. The design of the ovens allows for a fast heat up time, reaching 450°C in 35 minutes. Consuming an average of 4.5kg and 7kg of wood per hour respectively, the Quattro Pro and the Quick are designed to achieve a consistent cook and authentic, wood-fired taste.
Steve Morris, sales director at Jestic said: “Alfresco dining is what the summer is all about. Enjoying a chilled beverage and a delicious meal with friends and family on a warm evening is somewhat of a British pastime. To really make the most of this opportunity, many businesses have turned their outdoor space into extensions of their restaurant, with dedicated seating and prep kitchens.
“The re-launched wood-fired Quattro Pro and Quick from Alfa Pro offer chefs all the great benefits of an artisan pizza oven typically found in a kitchen, in mobile design that is suitable for use outside. Both the ovens also feature a unique honeycomb stainless steel structure to the chamber, making them lightweight, yet robust and capable of withstanding frequent use.”
To maintain output during peak trading hours, both ovens offer an enhanced chamber size, which is capable of cooking up to six pizzas simultaneously.
