Electrolux Professional has launched a new combi ovens buyer’s guide to aid chefs and distributors make the right purchasing decisions.
The guide outlines how to pick the right model, provides information on how to accurately size it and covers why a combi oven is such a powerful weapon in a chef’s armoury, in addition to touching on some of the most commonly underused features.
Highlighting the latest technological advancements, such as 24/7 collection of data and pre-programmable cooking modes, the guide also covers emerging features available on modern combi ovens.
Electrolux Professional’s training and development manager, Stuart Flint, said: “The versatility of a combi oven means there are a huge range of features to consider, which can be daunting for chefs. That’s why we produced this guide, in order to simplify the process, and create a step-by-step approach to making the right decision.
“We want to ensure chefs are asking themselves the right questions, which is why we have included a section outlining everything that they should be thinking about. From size, to technology, to ergonomics, the guide covers the key considerations in finding the right oven for the job.”
The guide features a section on maintenance and energy efficiency and explores what operators can do to maximise the potential of their equipment, and also highlights the importance of choosing an oven which incorporates sustainable technology, such as self-cleaning functions, and notes the energy saving potential of the latest models.
Flint concluded: “Given the important place that combi ovens occupy in nearly every kitchen, from Michelin-starred restaurants through to school canteens, it is crucial that chefs are helped to make the right choice.
“Electrolux Professional’s definitive buyer’s guide covers everything that a chef needs to consider in making this type of purchase, equipping them with the necessary knowledge to make the most of their kitchen.”
The guide follows the launch of Electrolux Professional’s newest combi oven, the SkyLine series, the culmination of 40 years’ experience in commercial catering equipment R&D, which combines innovative technology with human-centred design.
Features such as OptiFlow, SkyClean, and 24/7 connectivity and data monitoring through Electrolux’s OnE Flow, highlight the potential of modern combi ovens.
