Pizza equipment specialist, Linda Lewis Kitchens, has launched its latest electric pizza oven, the Caravaggio.
Designed to be energy efficient, the new Caravaggio range has been specifically created by Italian pizza oven manufacturer, Cuppone, to perfectly fit into a kitchen corner, thus meeting the demand for a high-output oven with a smaller footprint.
LLK has worked side-by-side with Cuppone to exclusively bring to the UK market a more compact pizza oven which could put an end to the afflictions of small-scale kitchen owners. Said to be versatile, the model can be used cook a selection of different dishes as well as to reheat or complete dishes that have been prepared in advance during busy periods of service, making this piece of equipment suitable for kitchens struggling with space.
Featuring all the latest innovations from Cuppone, the Caravaggio is equipped with a digital control panel which has the option of up to 100 different programmes; including ‘cleaning mode’, and an ‘end of cooking buzzer’ which notifies the operator when the pizzas are cooked. Customers can also purchase an add-on device for their oven which allows it to be turned on and off by simply sending text.
The Caravaggio will be available in two versions, Touch Screen (TS) and (CD), which are both available in a single and twin deck.
The two models are differentiated by their digital temperature control system. The TS version gives users the ability to individually control the top and bottom element of each deck with options between 0% and 100% power. Whereas in the CD version the minimum and maximum are set to 33% and 100%.
The Caravaggio also features Cuppone’s heat regeneration system, which ensures that when the oven door is opened the oven immediately circulates the heat back inside; minimising heat-loss.
The cooking chamber is manufactured entirely from stainless steel to ensure a hygienic finish and no chance of rusting. Like all Cuppone ovens, the Caravaggio has a cordierite stone cooking base to retain heat and ensure an authentic Italian stone-baked flavour.
Featuring a double-glazed, panoramic glass door and internal lights which allow chefs and employees to check the progress of the pizzas which are cooked in around 3-5 minutes, the oven can fit up to five 12” or two 20” pizzas per deck with or without pans
The Caravaggio oven range can be supplied as a twin or two single decks for stacking, and is available in both single phase and three phase power supply versions.
It comes with a 2-years parts and 1-year labour with an additional warranty package available to purchase directly from LLK. All models can be supplied with stand (with or without wheels and, only in model 835, with or without cutting for inserting the mixer) and ventilation hood (with or without five-speed motor).
