Menumaster’s MXP high-speed oven has become an important piece of equipment across the stores of Florida-based chain Tropical Smoothie Café.
The oven, described by the Ali Group as “the ideal way to provide customers with a perfectly toasted product”, can now be found in most of the chain’s 600 stores, while many of the brand’s new openings have two.
Tropical Smoothie’s innovation brand chef Lake Dawson had previously sung the praises of the equipment in Aliworld, the Ali Group magazine, in 2017.
He said: “The fact that it offers cost savings is a big plus, and from a culinary standpoint, there’s not much I can’t do out of it. For being such a small piece of equipment, it’s just great.”
The oven cooks 15 times faster than a conventional oven and offers any combination of microwave, convection, impingement or infrared.
As well as saving space, it allows for cooking without a hood while cost-savings add to the attraction.
The Ali Group is one of the largest and most diversified global leaders in the food service equipment industry and claims to pride itself “on its desire to continuously improve quality, innovation and market reach.”
