altooWe’ve discussed the trends before. School districts across the nation are serving healthier choices to their students. Freshness is a new buzzword. Alternative cooking methods are being implemented. And some schools are even growing and cooking their own foods. As fryers are being replaced, new equipment is needed to support efforts toward healthier cooking methods.
Combi Ovens from Alto-Shaam can provide unique and versatile cooking methods. They have the ability to keep up in high volume environments. They’re designed to maximize space. And yes, they’re the most advanced and innovative combi ovens available.

Alto-Shaam Combi Ovens: Advanced vs. Basic

If programmability, menu design, and one-touch cooking are what you want, the slightly more advanced CTP category of combi ovens will work best. But if basic models are what you need, Alto-Shaam provides the CTC models.
There’s a distinct difference between Alto-Shaam’s CTP-style combi ovens and their CTC units. Though both are the high-quality, top-of-the-line ovens you’d expect from Alto-Shaam, the CTC units have very basic controllers. This means ease-of-use for school district chefs who are still looking for the benefits of a combi oven without the need for advanced programmability. The CTC model packs a punch but does come with a few less bells and whistles.

Consider the following CTC Combi Oven units to utilize Alto-Shaam’s innovative technologies. Which unit best fits your kitchen?
