Epsom-based supplier EPP has brought the new Miwe gusto:snack electric oven to the UK market.
Designed to be space-saving, the convection unit can bake, steam, grill and reheat and should therefore be suitable for sites which want a snack provision.
The oven is plug and play, can produce crispy, hot snacks in minutes.
EPP MD Steve Merritt commented: “Warm snacks remain a key driver in the food-to-go market. This is a well-recognised fact.
“But many outlets are pushed for room and Miwe has responded to this constraint by producing an oven that allows outlets to increase sales by offering a wide range of warm snacks and dishes without taking up extra space.
“The aroma of freshly baked bread and the sight of hot, steaming savouries means that in-store baking can offer a culinary delight for customers in foodservice outlets and convenience stores in addition to traditional high street bakeries. But there is much more to the Miwe gusto:snack than being a superb bake-off oven able to produce excellent baked snacks.”
He feels: “Its steamer is very easy-to-use which can be combined with hot air for reheating meat, fish and vegetables allowing outlets to offer a wider range of snacks dishes without taking up extra space.
“By controlling the cooking time a multipoint core temperature sensor ensures food doesn’t overcook or burn. There’s also plenty of room to move around in front of the oven thanks to its door with a bottom hinge.”
The oven is operated using the Miwe go! control system. “The sequence is logical. All you have to do is select the product and press start,” said Merritt.
The Miwe gusto snack holds up to three 44.5 x 35cm baking trays which are loaded lengthways to ensure a large visible surface helped by the insulated glass door and easy handling.
An optional fully automatic two-stage cleaning system which takes about 55 minutes to 98 minutes to complete, depending on the level of intensity, is available, meaning the oven can be cleaned outside of business hours and then users can take advantage of the residual heat from the cleaning process during the first baking or cooking of the day.
