Tunbridge Wells-based supplier rexmartins has added a range of electric combi steamers to its portfolio.
Manufactured in Italy by Bake Off, the range comprises models optimised for bakery and gastronomy, arranged in three groups: ‘Easy’, ‘Bistrot Star 2X’ and ‘Gourmet Star 2X’.
The entry level ‘Easy’ range is designed to offer the benefits of combi steaming at a budget price. Featuring simple manual control knobs, the ovens offer hot air, steam and combination modes. This means that the ovens can be used to roast, bake, steam and poach. The ‘Easy’ range can accept both gastronorm dishes and 60 x 40cm baking trays, which is said to make them a versatile option for dealers and end users alike.
The ‘Bistrot Star 2X’ range is optimised for bakery and accepts both 60 x 40cm and 66 x 46cm trays. Its sister range, ‘Gourmet Star 2X’ is designed for gastronomy applications and accepts GN trays. Both series are available with a choice of control methods: ‘Vision’ touchscreen intuitive programmable control and ‘Classic’ manual control.
Commercial director, Nick McDonald, said: “Many combination ovens on the market come bundled with various options which may, or may not, be of value to the customer.
“Our approach is different in that we offer a good basic specification with certain features as options. This means we can offer the base units at very competitive prices, whilst still offering the flexibility of optional features like self-cleaning and hand showers.”
The company also offers a range of matching stands and accessories including provers and steam condensing hoods.
