Win an Alto-Shaam Cook & Hold oven worth over £3,500

Having a reliable, efficient single unit that cooks and holds food at the optimum temperatures for serving can make a real difference in busy catering situations. Foodservice Equipment Marketing (FEM) supplies Alto-Shaam cook and hold ovens that do all this and more, while saving time, energy and money.

Now FEM is giving Caterer and Hotelkeeper readers the chance to win the counter-top Alto-Shaam AS-250 cook and hold oven, which has a list price of £3,500 plus VAT.

Alto-Shaam cook and hold ovens can be used for cooking and holding a wide variety of meat, poultry and vegetables, as well as for braising, baking, proofing bread dough or reheating convenience food. The ovens are easy to operate and little to no training is required.

The ovens have low energy consumption, low emissions and, in most settings, do not require oven hoods or outside venting. This alone can save up to £30 per 16-hour day of operation, as most traditional hoods cost up to £2 an hour to operate.

The special heating system, called Halo-Heat, surrounds the food with controlled, uniform heat. This gently and evenly cooks and holds the food, without the risk of drying out or burning. It also retains the food's moisture and nutrients, increases product holding life and reduces shrinkage by up to 18%.

The Alto-Shaam AS-250 can accommodate up to three 1/1 GN 65mm pans and cooks by time or by probe and has eight programmable menu buttons to store favourite recipes.

For a chance to the win the counter-top Alto-Shaam AS-250 cook and hold oven, simply answer the question above to be entered into the draw. All entries must be received by 26 April 2013.
