"Not only is the equipment great, but so is the support"

Proud Owner: Combitherm®, smoker, Cook & Hold and rotisserie ovens and holding cabinets

Geisinger Health Systems has used Alto-Shaam equipment for over 20 years, including Combitherm combi ovens, smoker ovens, Cook & Hold ovens, holding cabinets and rotisserie ovens.

Steve Cerullo, Senior Foodservice Director, said what he likes best about the Alto-Shaam ovens is the ease of use, dependability and reliability. Geisinger Health Systems uses the Alto-Shaam equipment daily in the production kitchens, retail operations and room service.

 “Not only is the equipment great, but so is the support,” Steve said. “We've had our chefs at the Alto-Shaam test kitchen where they learned a ton about the Alto Shaam products and how to best use them. We also have fantastic access to the corporate chefs and sales team direct from the factory. None of them have EVER let us down when we needed something.”

""We need equipment that is efficient and reliable. Alto-Shaam gives us all of those things.""

Over the years, Peppermill Reno has undergone numerous renovations to get the property where it is today – four separate hotel areas, a luxury spa, 10 public restaurants, a 24/7 casino, the largest meeting and events space in northern Nevada and a thriving nightlife packed with year-round entertainment. One of the largest privately owned companies in northern Nevada, Peppermill Reno does everything from advertising to glass work in-house, including the award-winning cuisine from executive chef, Mark Lund and his culinary team.

An area that is never short-changed is the kitchens, which feature high-quality equipment made in the USA, such as Alto-Shaam foodservice equipment. Lund and his team of 170 are very particular about the type of foodservice equipment that is used at Peppermill Reno and for good reason. The staff dishes out anywhere from 25,000 to over 80,000 meals weekly depending on the season.

Throughout the property, there are well over 150 products from Alto-Shaam, not including a recent order Lund put in for new Combitherm® ovens, QuickChiller™  blast chillers and warmers for a their banquet facility. Lund and team uses Cook & Hold ovens throughout the entire property, including the buffet, banquet centers, employee dining, room service kitchen, coffee shop and Biscotti’s. In addition, there are 52 banquet carts, six heated holding cabinets, multiple combi ovens, plus many new Alto-Shaam warmers that are replacing old ones throughout the property.

“We are typically running a very high room occupancy, so we are always busy. Thirteen of our kitchens are used extensively every day,” said Lund. “With that high of demand and a limited labor supply, we need equipment that is efficient and reliable. Alto-Shaam gives us all of those things in one package, which is the greatest gift ever.”
