Lincat has added a new compact, general purpose convection oven to its Convector series.
The new CO343 model, which is available with Manual+ and Touch controls, has been developed in response to feedback from operators who require ovens with a reduced footprint and high-capacity output.
Helen Applewhite, marketing manager of Lincat, said: “The CO343 is the result of a fantastic response to the launch of our powerful, feature-packed Convector convection ovens, which we unveiled at the Commercial Kitchen Show last year.
“Although it is the smallest model in the range, the CO343 doesn’t hold back on capacity, features or power. We are really excited to bring this innovative new oven to the market and have high hopes that it will become a firm Lincat favourite.”
Able to accommodate up to four 1/1 gastronorms, and with two-speed, bi-directional fans designed to enable even, controlled cooking, the CO343 should deliver high output and is powered by a 13A plug.
Both the Manual+ and Touch models offer timed cooking, with accurate temperature control. At the end of the cooking cycle, a buzzer sounds, and flashing ‘ready’ lights illuminate the cabinet until the door is opened.
The Touch model (CO343T) is operated by a touchscreen to deliver a broader range of cooking options, sophisticated control and customisation. It can be operated in three modes – manual, rack timer for each of the four 1/1 gastronorms, or phased cooking.
The ‘phased’ option allows users to programme up to four cooking stages or ‘phases’. Individual temperatures, fan speeds and times can be assigned to each. They should be suitable for baking, bake-off, roasting, braising and reheating in a range of settings, from restaurants and retail outlets, to butchers’ shops and garden centres.
The CO343 will be supplied with a 2-year parts and labour warranty.
