The Benefits of a Combi Oven – and a Full English Breakfast in less than 10 Minutes!

A combi oven can be one of the most versatile pieces of equipment in any commercial kitchen. Designed with innovative technology that allows it to perform 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?

VERSATILITY

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, reheating, and even grill.

YIELD

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.

EASE-OF-USE

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 fry some eggs,  grill cheese sandwiches, bake some pastries? Just put them in the oven and press a button. The oven will do the rest.

The Busychef Restaurant Range of the Month!

cropped-OG7002

The oven range is one of the most versatile pieces of equipment in a commercial kitchen, with the ability to fry, grill, broil, saute, boil, braise, simmer, warm and even bake! Whether you are opening a new restaurant and are considering the purchase of an oven range, or looking to replace the one you currently have, the Busychef team will walk you through their restaurant range of the month, and give you the reasons why they chose the Lincat OG7001 and OG7002.

Lincat re-designed the two Opus 700 gas oven ranges in 2010, the four burner OG7001 and six burner OG7002, but even 6 years ago their vision was forward thinking. The new models featured more powerful hob burners, stronger construction and easier to clean stainless steel radiused hob fronts. These important features have proved to be winners in design and practicality.

The hob burners deliver a higher power rating of 6.1 kW for natural gas and 5.7 kW for propane. This performance places them at the top of their class in terms of burner power, and enables them to deliver true high speed cooking. They can, nevertheless, be accurately controlled to ensure excellent results even at low temperatures.

The models feature powerful 6.8kW (OG7001) and 9kW (OG7002) ovens, which deliver precise thermostatic control from 120oC to 280oC. With double insulated doors, side and back panels, they offer safe operation, efficiency and economy.

Like all Lincat products, the new ranges are designed to be easy to clean, with removable floor plates and shelf supports; dished hob tops; vitreous enamelled oven liners and robust matt-enamelled cast iron pan supports.

Side opening doors ensure safe easy access, whilst four shelf positions offer greater versatility. A low level flue enables the entire hob top to be used and, if the ranges are to be installed with other items of Opus 700 equipment, an optional flue extension can be specified to achieve a uniform appearance.

In addition to the four and six burner gas ranges, the heavy-duty Opus 700 series includes six other oven ranges with solid top gas models, as well as electric and dual fuel options. The Opus 700 series also includes: fryers, chargrills, griddles and grills as well as pasta boilers and atmospheric steamers.

All Lincat products, including the Opus series of cooking equipment can be bought online at busychef.co.uk. Busychef are a Lincat Premier dealer and with YCE Catering Equipment Ltd have been partners with Lincat for over 30 years.
