Leading foodservice equipment manufacturer Alto-Shaam has revealed what it believes to be the five main benefits of its Vector Multi-Cook Ovens.
Claiming that well thought out kitchen design goes beyond square footage, the firm said that the multi-cook ovens provide unmatched volume and variety
These are the five ways the manufacturer believes that the product improves the layout and efficiency of commercial kitchens:
1. Maximizes Space
With exclusive Structured Air Technology®, Vector ovens are able to cook more food, more often with optimized, focused heat. Structured Air Technology delivers high-velocity, vertical upward and downward airflow.
Air travels through the shelves and is delivered vertically through holes in the jet plates on the top and bottom of each cook chamber.
This optimized, focused heat delivers faster, more even and consistent cooking than other cooking methods. One full-size oven can replace two traditional convection ovens.
2. Improves Efficiency
Vector ovens provide simple recipe programming, so staff of all ability levels are able to cook at the touch of a button.
Operators can create menu presets, and then anyone on the line can reproduce it with the right ingredients.
Each oven chamber is independently controlled, allowing up to four different menu items to be cooked at their ideal temperature, fan speed and cook time controls simultaneously with zero flavor transfer.
3. Ventless Operation
Vector countertop (H Series) models are designed with a UL-certified ventless and can be operated outside of traditional kitchen hood—maximizing floor space while improving efficiency and workflow.
This saves plenty of space, and it provides more flexibility when designing a kitchen layout. Countertop models only require 21” of space.
4. Provides Menu Expansion
Vector full-size (F Series) models offer combined chamber capability—allowing operators to cook taller food items by time or optional probe while still experiencing the benefits of Structured Air Technology.
Menu expansion is made easier with the ability to program recipes and cook high quality food at the touch of a button.
5. Improves Consistency and Food Quality
Operators can produce high-quality food on demand with consistent results every time. In a cooking category by itself, Structured Air Technology is unlike any other.
The unique airflow creates vertical curtains of air that deliver faster, more even and consistent cooking than other methods.
