Take five combi-ovens

Combi ovens, also known as combi steamers, combine the benefits of two established cooking methods - so you get roasts that are crisp on the outside (as in a conventional oven) and succulent on the inside (as in a steamer). They can prepare all sorts of different foods perfectly, because the oven cabinet's environment can be adjusted to suit whatever is being cooked. Roasting, baking, poaching, grilling… the combi does it all.

A 6-grid combi is suitable for up to 80 meals per day. Mini: Some manufacturers also offer smaller, ‘mini' combi steamers. Boiler or no boiler: there are two types of combi; steam is generated either in a boiler or by spraying water onto an element or gas burner heat exchanger. Each system has its benefits. Easy clean: instead of spending time scrubbing out the combi at the end of a hard shift, self-cleaning combis do it at the touch of a button. Check if the model being considered has this useful feature. Limescale: Limescale build-up can have a cataclysmic effect on a combi. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding prevention of limescale and descaling procedures. Source: [CESA(Catering Equipment Suppliers Association) 020 7793 3030Â
