Small on Space, Big on Return: The Vulcan Minijet™ Combi Oven
Written by David Sager — June 30, 2017
In a perfect world, you’d have all the room you could possibly need in your commercial kitchen. In the real world, however, you’re likely facing the same critical challenge as many other industrial foodservice operations: a shortage of space. The good news? Lack of square footage doesn’t have to mean lowering your expectations — especially if you make smart equipment buying decisions. Enter the Vulcan Minijet Combi Oven. Offering everything you want — and then some — from a combi oven, this powerful piece of professional kitchen equipment is mini but mighty.
Do More With Less With the Minijet
Why pay for multiple pieces of commercial kitchen equipment when you can pay for one instead? All combi ovens save space in restaurant kitchens thanks to their multi functionality (convection oven/steamer/combi). Measuring in at a width of just 21 inches, this consummate combi has an extremely narrow footprint designed to fit into even the tightest spaces.
But a small stature is not the only thing the Minijet has going for it when it comes to making the most of your space. The embodiment of Vulcan’s customer-back innovation, the Minijet boasts a unique rear design with recessed utilities allowing flush placement against the wall.
And the interior of the Vulcan Minijet Combi Oven is as mindful of space constraints as its exterior. Not only do pans slide directly onto its guide racks, but its clever design accommodates four 12″x20″x2.5″ or six 12″x20″x1″ pans. The result? Optimal capacity despite its small size.
Low Profile, High Performance
It may keep a low profile, but the Vulcan Minijet Combi Oven’s unique Twin Control (touch and knob functions) gives capability in the hands of any operator — regardless of skill level.
Busy kitchen professionals looking to prepare terrific tasting food without fussing with complicated equipment will love the simplicity of the ABC display. With just temperature, time and humidity, it is the heart of all cooking. Using patent pending technology, the ABC settings automatically control humidity based on selected cooking temperature. Operators get the performance of a combi with simply reducing cook times.
Chefs looking for complete control, meanwhile, will enjoy bringing their dishes to life with the JET display, which allows them to manually change settings on the spot and to cook with a food probe for the ultimate in precision cooking.
Ideal for entry-level users, the Minijet’s third setting, AUTO, is all about cooking with ease and peace of mind. If pictures are more your style, create and save custom recipes and simply touch a picture of the item you want to cook. We’ve already established that this hard-working combi oven can conserve both money and space, but it’s also a time-saver across everything from staff training to turnover.
The old expression insists that “good things come in small packages.” We can think of no better embodiment of this sentiment than the Vulcan Minijet Combi Oven, which uniquely empowers a diverse range of operators to consistently and comfortably produce extraordinary food.
