Oven equipment manufacturer Alto-Shaam has launched the latest in its series of full-size Vector Multi-Cook Ovens, designed and approved for UK and European customers and featuring its patented Structured Air Technology.
Built to accommodate both GN 2/1 and GN 1/1 pans, the new oven allows user to combine oven chambers to accommodate taller food items such as turkeys or roasts. With this combined chamber capability, the oven also has the ability to cook by time or food temperature probe.
When jet plates are removed to combine chambers, a feature allows for coverage of the exposed air inlets which maintains Alto-Shaam’s Structured Air Technology, which is designed to provide even cooking. The technology is designed in partnership with Appliance Innovation.
Complementing its existing countertop models, the new full-size models are available with up to four chambers and are comparable to two ‘traditional’ ovens, while offering claimed better browning and higher yield.
The ovens should have the ability to simultaneously cook a variety of menu items with no flavour transfer, and operators can control the temperature, fan speed and time in each individual oven chamber.
As with other models in the Vector range, the new F Series is designed to be simple and intuitive to programme and use, and is said to cook food up to twotimes faster than its traditional counterparts. No water and no microwaves are required.
Brian Jahnke, vice president of business development in Europe, said: “We are confident this oven will be a great addition to kitchens throughout the UK and Europe. This oven’s flexibility surpasses anything we’ve seen in the market. You can now cook your food exactly how you want it – when you want it.”
The Alto-Shaam brand is supplied to the UK market through Foodservice Equipment Marketing.
