Catering equipment supplier, Euro Catering, has launched a super-slim gas combi oven from Italian manufacturer Giorik, which is designed for use in smaller pub, restaurant and school kitchens.
The 10-rack capacity multi-function oven is just 520mm in width. The Giorik Kompatto KT101G-W two-fan oven provides all the functionality of a professional oven, within a very small footprint.
The oven incorporates high-tech software that drives advanced functionality. All shelves have individual timers and advanced cooking functions are selected through an easy-to-use touchscreen control panel.
Constant monitoring of the climactic conditions within the oven allows for precise chamber humidity control. Humidity can also be adjusted according to the food being cooked and Delta T cooking is facilitated. The oven heats up quickly and has a six-speed cooking fan.
The oven also enables the chef to control both the quality and quantity of steam used within the oven, allowing them to select the type of steam they want to generate – dry or humid – to avoid oxidisation, soaking and burning of foods and ensure tenderness, or faster cooking where required.
The Giorik Kompatto produces steam much more quickly than other ovens, it is claimed, and is both energy and water-efficient. It has strong heat-up and recovery times that eliminate delays in service and avoid energy waste. Its Steam Tuner also keeps water usage to a minimum.
It is ideal for use in kitchens where space is at a premium thanks to its flexibility, whether the chef wishes to use convection cooking for burgers, pastries and bread products, utilise vapour to steam vegetables, rice or salmon steaks, or operate with steam and convection, to cook dishes such as hotdogs, chicken or eggs. It can operate at temperatures as low as 50˚C, holding dishes, when it needs to, or warming sauces or other foods through.
Cleaning is easy and there is an automatic washing programme with a choice of three wash cycles – soft, normal and hard. An internal boiler can be supplied as an additional option and the oven comes with 24-months parts and labour warranty.
