When it comes to ranges, we often come up with the old debate of a combo oven vs. an ordinary oven. Both sides have advantages and drawbacks. Let’s face it, a combi oven in cooking is like Michael Jordan’s. A regular range is more like your regular TV.
A combi oven works first and foremost as a sous chef in your kitchen. It can do almost everything including roasting and steaming as well as baking. You can also cook your meals faster and more evenly because they are quick to heat and maintain the right temperature. It’s possible to have your cake quickly and enjoy it right away.
But combi ovens have the advantage of saving space. They can replace many kitchen appliances, thereby freeing up valuable counter or cupboard space. So, you can now say goodbye to bulky steamers and convection ovens that eat up valuable kitchen space.
Combi ovens are used in both commercial and residential kitchens. They are ideal for fast food preparation in busy restaurants and hotels. Their versatility also helps to reduce labor costs.
Traditional ovens, however, are not as common. They are limited to baking. They are limited to baking, so your meats will be less tender and moist. Due to the lack of combi ovens that provide quick heating and temperature control, meals can take longer and may cook unevenly.
