A range of Vector Multi-Cook ovens that can cook twice as much food up to two-times faster than their traditional counterparts has been launched by Alto-Shaam, the global manufacturer of commercial ovens for foodservice and retail operations.

The ovens feature up to four, individually-controlled chambers allowing different foods to be cooked simultaneously, without any flavour transfer. They are therefore ideally suited to busy restaurants and fast-food operations that require large quantities of different foods to be cooked at high speed but without sacrificing quality.

Two models are available: the Vector H Series is a compact, countertop model with a 533mm footprint and ventless operation. It is available with two, three or four oven chambers. The larger Vector F Series three- and four-chamber ovens can accommodate both GN 2/1 and GN 1/1 pans and have the ability to combine oven chambers to cook taller food items such as turkeys or roasts. Food in combined chambers can cook by time or a food temperature probe.

All of the models in the H and F Series feature Alto-Shaam’s Structured Air Technology®. The patented technology enables high velocity, focused heat for faster, more even cooking.

Operators can control the temperature, fan speed and cooking time in each individual oven chamber for maximum flexibility, allowing them to simultaneously prepare a variety of menu items – from fish to pastries – with no flavour transfer.

The ovens are very simple and intuitive to programme and use, with touchscreen control, and require little or no operator training. They can cook twice as much food up to two-times faster than their traditional counterparts.

Brian Jahnke, vice president of business development in Europe, says that the ovens are designed to deliver the greatest flexibility and unrivalled cooking performance: “Customers across Europe and Russia can now cook their food exactly how they want it – when they want it – with a range of ovens that maximise the space available and deliver consistent, high-quality menus.”
