Jestic has signed an agreement to be the exclusive supplier of the Italian brand, Alfa Pro’s pizza ovens, across the UK and Ireland.
With over 40 years of experience and research, Alfa Pro’s ovens feature patented Forninox technology, combining stainless steel with refractory tiles, to achieve what is said to be a lightweight yet durable commercial oven.
Powered by gas, wood or dual fuel, the ovens are claimed to be suited to both a traditional kitchen setup or for positioning front of house in an open kitchen.
Alfa Pro ovens are available in a range of sizes and styles, each said to offer a compact design to maximise space in a busy kitchen. Among the portfolio are smaller countertop ovens such as the Qubo, capable of cooking up to 80 pizzas per hour, and larger freestanding models such as the Opera, with a capacity of up to 150 pizzas per hour.
The brand’s units are designed to be simple to outfit, as they come pre-assembled, and installation is said to be completed in a few quick steps.
Able to reach the optimum working temperature in 15 minutes, Alfa Pro ovens are designed with the latest thermal insulation, said to achieve a better heat retention.
With gas fired ovens the choice for many kitchens in the UK, Alfa Pro offers ‘CompactFlame’ technology for its pizza ovens for good performance in a small space.
The gas burner combines with the design of the insulated domed chamber to achieve temperatures of up to 450°C, while the base, built from two types of brick, should retain heat.
Steve Morris, sales director at Jestic Foodservice Equipment commented: “We’ve been extremely impressed by the outstanding build quality, cooking consistency and drive for innovation by Alfa Pro and as such; we’re delighted to be announced as the exclusive distributor for the range in the UK and Ireland.
“Complementing our existing portfolio of commercial pizza ovens, we believe the inclusion of the Alfa Pro range will give our customers the ultimate choice when it comes to finding the best solution for their business.
“Combined with our Jestic Aftercare offering, including maintenance contracts and a dedicated and highly experienced culinary development team, the new distribution agreement with Alfa Pro will ensure that we offer one of the most comprehensive, dedicated pizza oven portfolios on the market.”
