2001 Steamer & Combi Oven Equipment Buyer's Guide Anyone who cooks for hundreds-if not thousands-of students knows that life would be so much simpler if one appliance performed all your kitchen tasks. In a dreamer's world, that is the perfect reality. While we haven't reached such a utopia, technology is progressing, and foodservice operators are seeing more products that can do multiple jobs. These systems make it more affordable and more time-efficient for you to serve your student customers. One example of this kind of product collaboration is something that many of you have become quite familiar with: the combi oven. The combi is a great tool to cook a variety of foods with different prep needs-at the same time, in the same unit. Want to steam vegetables while roasting a turkey and holding a batch of biscuits? Combis are designed to give you the temperature and humidity controls you need to serve a complete meal in a limited time. New technologies allow combis to offer improved service. No plumbing required? Sizes to fit all kitchens? Doneness sensors? Odds are, there's a product on the market that fits your specific operation's needs. Are you still flirting with the idea of trying brand-new technology? Or perhaps you're simply updating your old equipment? As a special service to you, School Foodservice & Nutrition has researched several companies that offer cooking equipment that many of you just can't-or shouldn't-live without. And because we know that some readers prefer-and can accommodate-equipment designed for one particular purpose, this Guide also includes steamer units, in addition to combi models. Please note, however, that this resource is not a comprehensive listing of all available systems. If you know of a company that should have been included, please contact the SF&N editorial office so that the company can be added to future guides. Also, readers should note that participating companies were asked to provide their own description of the products they offer. These descriptions, and inclusion of the companies in the Guide, do not indicate any endorsement by SF&N or ASFSA. AccuTemp Products, Inc.
