Danish combi oven manufacturer, HOUNÖ A/S, is offering food retailing and foodservice operators the chance to gain first-hand experience of its product range. The invitation is open to potential specifiers of combi ovens, including chefs, retailers, food to go operators, contractors and kitchen concept specialists.
HOUNÖ’s Development Chef, Edwin Adkins, explains the thinking behind the initiative:
“The combi oven is the workhorse of most kitchens and, as such, the make and model specified is one of the most important purchasing decisions for culinary operators. You wouldn’t buy a car without test driving it, so why invest in a combi oven without experiencing its features and performance characteristics?”
HOUNÖ provides personal cooking demonstrations on its combi ovens at its dedicated 120 sq m showroom and demonstration kitchen, which is located at the head office of its parent company, Middleby UK, in Wigan. The demonstration kitchen is fitted out with a representative selection of HOUNÖ’s combi ovens, which includes seven sizes of Visual Cooking ovens (1/1 GN and 2/1 GN) as well as 3 sizes of its compact CombiSlim ovens (2/3 GN and 1/1 GN). HOUNÖ offers the widest range of combi ovens in the world, with over 100 different configurations. In addition to providing customers and partners with the opportunity to ‘test drive’ the ovens, the consultations also allow HOUNÖ personnel to provide best advice on the most appropriate models and sizes for operators’ specific applications.
The demonstration kitchen is also used for menu development, providing an environment in which HOUNÖ’s chefs can work with customers to help them expand their range of innovative and wholesome freshly cooked food, increasing sales and maximising profit.
HOUNÖ holds regular training courses, for end users, within the demonstration kitchen. These comprehensive programmes ensure that operators are fully familiar with all product features, enabling them to gain maximum performance from their combi ovens and ensure consistently high standards of cooked food quality.
The showroom has been designed in keeping with HOUNÖ’s mission statement of “Let’s bring people to the table”, offering the capacity for 24 diners. The facility is used as a venue for lunches, dinners, special events and lectures.
Edwin Adkins added:
“The fact that our facility is co-located with our parent company’s showroom means that visitors can kill two birds with one stone; viewing the HOUNÖ range of combi ovens, as well as the extensive range of market leading equipment brands offered by Middleby UK.”
