Electrolux has launched the new air-o-steam Touchline oven for professional kitchens. The revolutionary oven simplifies cooking, saves money and reduces climate impact.
Electrolux has been offering best-in-class professional ovens since 1950. The air-o-steam combi oven range – introduced in 1977 – became world-renowned for its state-of-the-art technology. Now, Electrolux introduces the newest addition to its professional air-o-steam range: the air-o-steam Touchline.
“The air-o-steam Touchline is a truly revolutionary oven,” says Massimo Presot, Electrolux Professional Central Marketing Manager Foodservice. “It’s the perfect blend between air-o-steam’s past, present and future: it features the same reliability and top performance, yields higher profitability for our customers, and contributes to a more sustainable future for our children.”
When developing the air-o-steam Touchline, Electrolux Professional conducted some 1,200 interviews with end users all around the world to get their input for the new oven.
“What we found was that users wanted a simpler interface that made their jobs a lot easier in the kitchen,” explains Presot. “They also wanted an oven that was more eco-friendly and better for the environment.”
With air-o-steam Touchline, there’s no more need for complicated cooking: a single touch is all that’s required to prepare delicious meals thanks to the user-friendly High Definition Touch Screen featuring 262,000 colors, 30 languages, and internationally-recognized icons and food images.
“This intuitive interface is perfect for all types of users and professional kitchens including experienced chefs, high-capacity kitchens, and Quick Service Restaurants”, says Presot.
Electrolux is making a positive contribution to sustainable development through its operations as well as through its energy-efficient products like the air-o-steam Touchline oven, one of the greenest ovens on the market.
The oven’s high-efficient, low-pollutant gas burners mean that its CO2 emissions are 10 times lower than the Dutch government certification, which is the strictest in Europe, and 100 times lower than the European Standard Limit.
It also offers several additional green features: gas burners and a heat exchanger that increases efficiency ensuring up to 20% gas consumption savings compared with traditional burners; Low Temperature Cooking controlled by the patented Lambda sensor, that reduces food weight loss by up to 50%, thus eliminating significant waste; and the new automatic cleaning green functions, thus save rinse aid, electricity and water up to 25%* and operating costs up to 50%*.
* Comparing to standard cleaning cycles with no green functions activated (1 soft cycle/day with 280 working days/year).
