The Benefits of a Combi Oven
A combi oven can be one of the most versatile pieces of equipment in any commercial kitchen. Designed with innovative technology that allow it to preform many different functions inside the same unit, a combi oven can cook with convection, steam, or a combination of both. But what are the real benefits of combi ovens?
Because combi ovens create a cooking environment that is precisely controlled in terms of moisture and heat, they are ideal for a variety of cooking techniques. With a combi, operators can cook, roast, steam, smoke, grill, braise, bake, fry, re-therm, and even grill.
Because combi ovens can actually provide moisture instead of removing it, they allow for greater yields, especially when cooking meats and proteins. Standard convection ovens do not provide this benefit.
MAXIMIZE KITCHEN SPACE
Commercial kitchens are usually small, cramped places that don’t have any extra space. In fact, foodservice operators often have to make choices on what types of equipment they can use, thus impacting menu creation. With a combi, you can get the maximum capabilities out of that small footprint while at the same time adding menu variety.
With the innovative combi ovens available on the market today, operators can enjoy the ease-of-use that comes with pressing a pre-programmed button. Want to cook a sheet pan or two of grilled cheese sandwiches? Just put them in the oven and press a button. The oven will do the rest.
