Falcon Foodservice Equipment has launched a new range of combi ovens, available in programmable and manual versions, which are designed with improvements to construction, aesthetics and usability.
The top of the range ‘T’ models feature an upgraded user interface. The new high definition colour tablet-style touchscreen is said to be easy to operate. It can be configured to suit each kitchen’s requirements, with the home page able to display the most frequently used programmes, which can then be started with one touch.
Recipes can be organised in folders so that, for instance, those used on a certain day can be readily called up together. Previous models featured a 400 programme storage capacity, whereas the new ‘T’ models feature unlimited storage. Cooking advice and notes can be typed in and images can be added to help quick identification – these can be uploaded from an image gallery or from a USB.
Multilevel and Just in Time cooking enables menu items with different cooking times to be cooked simultaneously, with the combi oven is designed to recognise compatible recipes that can also be cooked together.
All of Falcon’s new seven and 10 shelf models benefit from new Liquid Clean automatic cleaning and descaling systems. The detergent and descaler containers are in-built, housed in a discreet compartment beneath the oven chamber. Each unit is also supplied with a multipoint temperature probe and hand shower as standard.
Alongside the new models, Falcon will continue to supply its compact combi oven range. The compact combis are only 510mm wide and enable smaller kitchens to benefit from combi cooking. They feature an interactive touch screen with 400 programme storage capacity, and an automatic cleaning system.
There is also a full range of cooking accessories available, such as perforated trays, skewer racks, meat grids and non-stick containers.
Shaune Hall, product development chef at Falcon said: “The new Falcon combi is a really excellent machine. It is full of innovative and useful features and the touch screen is very easy to use. I love the fact that you can adjust the programme settings even during any stage of the cooking process. The accessories really do make a difference too, making it even easier to produce great food.”
