FEM has launched another series of live cooking demonstrations for the Vector multi-cook oven, which has been developed in the USA by Alto Shaam.
The events will start at CCS’ headquarters in Heywood on Thursday 22 and Friday 23 November. Then the series moves on to FEM’s premises in East Kilbride, Glasgow, on Thursday 6 and Tuesday 11 December, then Thursday 17 and Thursday 31 January 2019. In between there will also be a session at Earls Barton in Northamptonshire on Friday 25 January 2019.
The Vector Live demonstrations are being run by experienced freelance chef Alan Evans, who works with several major catering equipment brands. He says the Vector is something totally new: “It’s innovative, refreshing, and it’s a concept that really works. No need for extraction canopy, no water, no waste required, unsupervised cooking, no flavour transfers between chambers, totally programmable – no other oven has four separate temperature zones. It gives you everything, and a little bit more.”
The new concept features up to four cooking chambers in one body, using an airflow design to cook food faster and more evenly.
The Vector is designed to have the flexibility to cook different products at the same time, in a compact footprint, with no risk of flavour transfer. Each chamber is independently controlled, with its own time, temperature and fan settings.
The Vector’s ‘Structured Air Technology’ delivers a high velocity, vertical airflow from the bottom and top of each chamber. It should produce even temperature control throughout each chamber, and faster cooking results – with no need to rotate or monitor cooking pans.
The vertical airflow means that when the door is opened, very little heat should escapes. Its ventless operation, and the fact that it needs no water connection, should mean a Vector oven can be placed virtually anywhere.
There are three models in the Vector range, offering a choice of two, three or four cooking chambers. The Vector Live events will feature the largest Vector multi-cook oven, the four-chamber VMC-H4H. It has a footprint of 533mm wide, 993mm deep and 1,082mm high.
