Ali Group brand Lainox has launched a new version of its Sapiens combi oven.
Said to be stylish, the latest unit has updated controls for simpler operation and what should be a more user-friendly experience.
Supplied by Falcon Foodservice Equipment in the UK, the combis feature a new colour display, replacing the old numeric keypad.
The display shows information including recipes, fan speed, washing programmes, menus and settings. There’s also an LED bar which lights up to offer a visual guide to the cooking progress.
Another upgrade is to give the Sapiens a variable fan speed, with up to six settings. This is designed to deliver tighter control of the cooking process, improving results. Adjusting the fan can also speed up the cooking process, thus reducing energy consumption.
The Sapiens is Lainox’s basic combination oven, which Falcon offers alongside the high end Naboo series. The Sapiens has manual controls, and standard features include an automatic washing system, a multipoint core temperature probe, inbuilt hand shower and storage of up to 99 recipe programmes.
The units comes in a range of sizes, including GN1/1 and GN2/1 compatible models, accommodating from seven to 20 GN1/1 pans. All are available in gas or electric versions.
There is also a choice of compact electric units, accommodating 2/3 or 1/1 GN pans, which should help chefs make maximum use of tight spaces in the kitchen.
List prices for the standard sized Sapiens models start from £7,159 for the seven-grid SAEB071R. The full range is available through Falcon’s dealer network.
