Here are the seven benefits of cook and hold oven technology.
Start cooking the night before to save on labor costs. Your food will be cooked to perfection and waiting for service the next day.
Expand Your Menu
With a variety of sizes and options for your kitchen, even the smallest of operations can expand menus by using a cook & hold oven to provide consistent results with every batch. Using the programmable features on the deluxe control models, you can store your eight favorite recipes for simple one-touch menu selection.
Easy to Operate
Set the holding temperature and the simple control to cook by time or use the probe to cook to a specified temperature with the deluxe control. The oven automatically switches into hold mode when the cook cycle is complete.
Greater Food Yields
Serve more portions from the same cut of meat to increase your profit margin. Cook & hold ovens can have about 18% less protein shrinkage than traditional convection ovens.
Make the most of less expensive and underutilized cuts of meats. Brisket, flat iron and other cuts of meat tenderize more with every hour in hold mode.
Low Energy Use
Save on utility bills by cooking a load of food for less than $1 in electricity.
Get out from under the hood and place your cook & hold oven anywhere in the kitchen, saving up to $30 of operating costs each day.
