What Is a Combi Oven?

Relatively new players on the professional kitchen equipment scene, combi ovens are true multi-tasking machines. Specifically, they let operators choose between three common cooking methods: convection heat, steam, or a combination of the two. Additionally, they fulfill a number of other purposes, including functioning as slow cookers, holding cabinets and proofers.
One of the main advantages of commercial combination ovens is the accurate temperature controls, which allow foods to be cooked according to the precise specifications of operators. Available in both electric and gas models, combi ovens grant restaurant owners and managers even greater flexibility when it comes to choosing a type of combi oven which best meets their needs.
