Alto-Shaam to Showcase New Innovations at NRA 2022

Alto-Shaam will introduce its latest innovation in the multi-cook category, Converge® Ovens, at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show in Chicago from May 21-24.

Converge Multi-Cook Ovens provide expanded menu potential in the smallest footprint, by pairing controlled humidity and the patented vertical air flow of Structured Air Technology®. With up to three independent chambers in a ventless space, operators can now steam, bake, grill, and air fry at the exact same time, in the same oven, without sacrificing quality. Converge also features a self-cleaning design, saving operators time and labor.

“NRA is the first major industry tradeshow to take place in three years,” said Steve Maahs, President and Chief Operating Officer at Alto-Shaam. “We will be showcasing numerous products introduced since, which are new to the show floor. Of them all, I am most excited for Converge, a true innovation unlike any before in the industry.”

Converge has been recognized for its cutting-edge design and technology, named one of 11 recipients of NRA’s prestigious Kitchen Innovation Award. Live cooking demonstrations of Converge will take place at the KI Showroom #3194, as well as at Alto-Shaam’s booth #4840.


Alto-Shaam chefs will also demonstrate its complete portfolio of equipment solutions that solve operator challenges, including labor, space, quality and consistency. Additional products showcased at NRA for the first time include Alto-Shaam’s latest Vector H Series Oven with wider chambers; new Heated Shelf Merchandisers featuring top heat; Cook & Hold Ovens; Smoker Ovens; and Ventech™ Condensation Hoods, designed for Combitherm® ovens.

In addition to Alto-Shaam’s culinary team, nationally renowned guest chefs will also be cooking live. Charlie the Butcher, one of Alto-Shaam’s longest customers, will prepare and serve his famous “Beef on Weck” sandwiches.

The Alto-Shaam booth will be fully interactive, with a section dedicated to ChefLinc™, its cloud-based remote oven management system. Visitors will be able to view the real-time status of ovens throughout the booth and experience the simplicity of pushing and pulling information to and from the ovens.
