Cooking equipment manufacturer Alto-Shaam reported success for the launch of its redesigned Cook & Hold ovens during a global event held virtually earlier this month.
The event, held via Zoom, attracted more than 500 participants, including foodservice operators, restaurant owners, consultants, distributors and industry media from over 40 countries around the world. It was held to celebrate the global launch of the new range of Cook & Hold and Smoker ovens featuring its Halo Heat Technology, with a new design and user-friendly controls.
The event also featured Alto-Shaam chefs from around the globe utilising Cook & Hold ovens to demonstrate the technology, cooking a variety of dishes from a number of different cuisines. Alto-Shaam customers also shared how they have been able to increase profits while also saving time and labour with their Cook & Hold technology.
Steve Maahs, president and COO at Alto-Shaam, said: “This event was a true celebration of our pioneering Cook & Hold ovens on a truly global scale. The fact that we were joined by attendees from every continent and every corner of the globe highlights how far we have come since my father pioneered the first Cook & Hold oven in 1968.
“Our Cook & Hold ovens were invented with operators’ needs and challenges in mind from the beginning. Throughout the years, we have remained dedicated to continuous improvement and investment in the most innovative technology that helps our customers pioneer their path forward.”
The new range of Cook & Hold ovens is available to order now. The units are claimed to be easy to operate, and feature Alto-Shaam’s most advanced control yet.
The new ovens can be managed remotely through Alto-Shaam’s cloud-based remote oven management system, ChefLinc. Through an intuitive dashboard, ChefLinc allows operators to create, manage and distribute recipes to ovens in multiple locations through the cloud – providing food operators control of their equipment, menus and business from wherever they are.
