Are you a restaurant owner who just can’t seem to find the right combination of cooking equipment to fulfill the unique demands that your business require throughout the day? A combi oven could be what you are searching for. With determination and attention to detail, this combi oven will be a great addition to your business.
- Combination ovens can serve as the jack-of-all-equipment-trades in your kitchen. One combi oven can do the work of a convection oven, braising pan, steamer, holding cabinet, smoker and even a dehydrator.
- Certified installers are an absolute must for your new combi oven, which will require a filtered and an unfiltered water connection, a drain, an electrical connection and/or a gas connection. “Most issues with combi ovens that I see in the field stem from improper installations,” Soehngen says.
- Be sure to build training into your team’s schedule before and after the new combi arrives. The training can come from the manufacturer’s rep or dealer — or both — and is crucial to ensuring that your team makes full use of the combi oven’s abilities, and that it receives the proper maintenance.
““The effective application of a combi oven takes a lot of guesswork out of precise preparation and menu execution,” he says. “In a lot of ways, it’s a technology-driven decision. Savvy operators understand that they can maintain a consistent product in a smaller footprint with this multi-use piece of equipment.””
