FEM believes that foodservice sites catering to vegan or allergen-avoiding tastes would benefit from the Vector multi-cook oven, manufactured by Alto-Shaam.
The unit features individual chambers, which means that vegan and non-vegan foods can be cooked simultaneously, in the same oven, while avoiding cross-contamination.
The company has launched a series of Vector Live demonstrations that will showcase this ability, as well as cooking up vegan recipes.
Mark Hogan, commercial director of FEM, said: “Vector is the only oven that allows simultaneous, high-quality preparation of a wide variety of food, with no cross contamination.
“Each chamber gives you individual control over temperature, fan speed and cook time. So you can have different foods, in the same oven, at the same time, with absolute safety, all cooked to the highest quality.”
This is enabled by the oven’s Structured Air Technology which delivers a high velocity, vertical airflow from the bottom and top of each chamber. It is designed to produce even temperature control, throughout each chamber.
Meanwhile the Vector’s intuitive touchscreen panel, which can be programmed with pre-set recipes, should make it easy to use. When food in any chamber is cooked, staff are alerted with an audio alarm.
The Vector multi cook oven is available in three versions, offering a choice of two, three or four cooking chambers. All are countertop units built to a footprint of 533mm wide by 993mm deep.
Hogan added: “With the four chamber model, chefs can have a vegan dish in the top chamber, a vegetarian in the second, a fish dish in the third and meat in the fourth. That’s what we call true flexitarian cooking!”
