Panasonic will be revealing its new Speed Convection Oven at Commercial Kitchen, aimed at visitors from the food to go sector, a market estimated to be worth £16.1bn in 2016.
With the food to go specialists (worth £4.6bn) in growth, and convenience and forecourt operators (worth £2.5bn) introducing dedicated food to go counters in stores, there is a need for a cost-effective alternative to the accelerated cooking options already available.
Iain Phillips, Sales and Marketing Manager, Panasonic UK Ltd, said: “We are delighted to be returning to Commercial Kitchen and have once again chosen to launch a new product there as the audience is so relevant, being a dedicated equipment show. Our Speed Convection Oven is used by a major global coffee chain in Japan. After consultation with UK operators, it has now been developed to suit the British market.
“The SCV-2 Speed Convection Oven is an exciting launch for us as it adds a new dimension to our existing range of commercial microwaves and gives us the opportunity to offer an affordable solution to those seeking an oven with excellent build quality that will perform in a high throughput environment.”
When space is at a premium and speed is of the essence, the SCV-2 is the oven to choose. It is fitted with a catalytic converter for extraction-free cooking, meaning it can be located anywhere, and has two inverters, cooled by four fans. There is a full accessory kit that includes a ceramic base tray, wire rack, ceramic plate, non-stick basket and a pizza paddle, and the oven can store up to 1,000 cooking programmes, with the operator’s own images, on a removable SD card, all of which is accessible via the intuitive, touch control panel.
The oven also benefits from an easy-access, front mounted filter, operates at a temperature range of 180°-280°C and sports compact dimensions; W 474mm x D 565mm x H 412mm.
As well as launching the SCV-2 with cooking demonstrations on stand, Panasonic will be displaying its range of commercial microwaves, including the ever-popular NE-C1275 3-way combination oven and the Gastronorm ovens that can accommodate a full 1:1 Gastronorm dish, perfect for high turnover, multi-portion or multiple single portion operations.
Visit Panasonic on stand H15 at Commercial Kitchen on 6-7th June at the NEC Birmingham.
