One-Step Proof & Bake in the CTP Combi

No need to have a proof box when baking bread or pastries.  With the power and precision of the Alto-Shaam CT PROformance™ combi oven, you can proof and bake in one step with one single push of a recipe. The CTP combi oven with the turbo feature is fast enough to preheat after proofing to perfectly bake bread and pastries.
