Northamptonshire-based supplier Euro Catering has introduced Italian manufacturer Italforni’s latest entry level pizza ovens to the UK market.
The EK4 and EK44 single and double-deck electric models come with an aluminium-coated, steel plate cooking chamber, electric heating elements and halogen lamps.
Said to be compact, the units feature a refractory baking floor and separate thermostatic controls to individually control the base of the oven, and its ceiling. A single-tempered glazed door is counterbalanced, to improve opening and closing.
The ovens can reach a temperature of 450°C and have a vapour-release feature that should ensure excess moisture is removed from the oven chamber during cooking. The EK4 can cook four 13-inch (33cm pizzas) at once, whilst the two-deck E44 doubles this capacity.
Euro Catering’s sales director, Justin Towns, said: “We recognised the need for those entering the pizza sector, or offering pizza as a new menu choice, to have an entry-level oven, at a keen price, but to also have the peace of mind of knowing that spare parts and service will always be available in the years ahead.
“Italforni is a well-established manufacturer, with three decades of high quality service to its name. The ovens already come with 2 years’ parts and 1 year’s labour protection. Thereafter, the purchaser can rest assured that Italforni will be around to offer any support required. This distinguishes these entry-level ovens from many others in the market.”
