Electrolux Professional has launched a combi ovens buyer’s guide in a bid to help distributors and chefs navigate the wide array of options and make the right purchasing decision.
The guide covers why a combi oven is beneficial for foodservice sites, and touches on some of the most commonly underused features. It also outlines how to pick the right model, and provides information on how to accurately size it.
Highlighting the latest technological advancements, such as 24/7 collection of data and pre-programmable cooking modes, the guide also covers emerging features available on modern combi ovens.
Stuart Flint, training and demonstration manager at Electrolux Professional, commented: “The versatility of a combi oven means there are a huge range of features to consider, which can be daunting. That’s why we produced this guide, in order to simplify the process, and create a step-by-step approach to making the right decision.
“We want to ensure distributors and chefs are asking themselves the right questions, which is why we have included a section outlining everything that they should be thinking about. From size, to technology, to ergonomics, the guide covers the key considerations in finding the right oven for the job.”
Featuring a section on maintenance and energy efficiency, the guide also explores how to maximise the potential of the equipment. It covers the importance of choosing an oven which incorporates sustainable technology, such as self-cleaning functions, and notes the energy saving potential of the latest models. The false economy of making a cheap, up-front purchase is addressed, highlighting the long-term running costs associated with less sophisticated models.
Flint concluded: “Given the important place that combi ovens occupy in nearly every kitchen, from Michelin-starred restaurants through to school canteens, it is crucial that chefs are helped to make the right choice.
“Electrolux Professional’s definitive buyer’s guide covers everything that a dealer or chef needs to consider in making this type of purchase, equipping them with the necessary knowledge to make the most of the kitchen.”
The guide follows the launch of Electrolux Professional’s newest combi oven, the SkyLine series. The range is the culmination of 40 years’ experience in commercial catering equipment R&D, and combines what is said to be innovative technology with human-centred design. Features such as OptiFlow, SkyClean, and 24/7 connectivity and data monitoring through Electrolux’s OnE Flow, highlight the potential of modern combi ovens.
