Catering equipment importer and supplier, Euro Catering, has launched a slim gas combi oven from Italian manufacturer Giorik.
With its 10-rack capacity, this multi-function oven is designed for kitchens where space is at a premium. Measuring just 520mm in width, the Giorik Kompatto KT101G-W two-fan oven is said to provide all the functionality of a professional oven, within a very small footprint.
The oven incorporates high-tech software that should drive advanced functionality. All shelves have individual timers and advanced cooking functions are selected through what is claimed to be an intuitive and easy-to-use touchscreen control panel.
Chamber humidity is monitored by the oven and can also be adjusted according to the food being cooked. Delta T cooking is facilitated, plus the oven heats up quickly and has a six-speed cooking fan.
The oven is also claimed to enable the chef to control both the quality and quantity of steam used within the oven, enabling them to select the type of steam they want to generate – dry or humid – to avoid oxidisation, soaking and burning of foods and ensure tenderness, or faster cooking where required.
The Giorik Kompatto is designed to produce steam quickly and be both energy and water-efficient. It is said to have good heat-up and recovery times, and Steam Tuner is claimed to keep water usage to a minimum.
It can operate at temperatures as low as 50˚C, holding dishes, when it needs to, or warming sauces or other foods through.
Cleaning is said to be easy and there is an automatic washing programme with a choice of three wash cycles – soft, normal and hard. An internal boiler can be supplied as an additional option and the oven comes with 24-months parts and labour warranty.
Euro Catering’s owner, Tim Charlton, said: “Giorik has been known for manufacturing excellence for over 25 years, but the Giorik Kompatto takes functionality, within a very small footprint, to a whole new level. The R&D team recognised the need of chefs with only small kitchens at their disposal and specifically set about creating an oven that would deliver everything these chefs require, if they wish to operate a full menu, with lots of choices and healthily cooked options, as well as classic favourites.
“With its 10-rack capacity, this slimline ‘perfect 10’ oven is also super-stylish, making it an attractive addition to any kitchen.”
