FEM has introduced the Vector multi-cook oven, manufactured by Alto Shaam, to the UK market.
The unit offers up to four separate oven chambers in one compact unit. Airflow technology is claimed to deliver fast and even cooking, while ventless operation and the fact that it needs no water connection, means it can be placed anywhere.
Vector ovens are available with two, three or four separate cooking chambers. Each is independently controlled, with its own time, temperature and fan settings. FEM says there is no possibility of flavour transfer between the chambers, and all units are 530mm wide.
The oven’s speed is down to the Structured Air Technology feature. This is designed to deliver 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 is said to have the added benefit that when the door is opened, very little heat escapes.
The unit’s touchscreen panel is claimed to be intuitive and can be programmed with pre-set recipes. When food in any chamber is cooked, staff are alerted with an audio alarm.
Mark Hogan, marketing and sales manager of FEM said: “The Vector is a truly versatile cooking appliance that can increase production, improve quality and save time. It was unveiled at Host and stirred up a lot of interest – because while the benefits it delivers are crystal clear, it’s also a brand new concept, in a category all of its own.”
The smallest Vector is the two-chamber VMC-H2H, which measures 533mm wide by 993mm deep and 724mm high. It has a list price of £13,250.
