Discover Halo Heat Technology
Featuring Alto-Shaam unique Halo Heat® technology, the Cook & Hold makes it easy for the oven to transition to a holding temperature until serving time. The radiant properties of Halo Heat provide higher protein yields, energy usage, and the need for additional appliances, saving time and money in a crowded kitchen.
Designed to work overnight, Alto-Shaam’s cook and hold ovens are highly efficient, eliminating the need for extra manpower during the cooking process. For about $1 a day, the oven can be utilized to its full potential. Unlike traditional convection ovens, the Cook & Hold series also reduces meat shrinkage by 18%, while also producing a more tender product. The Halo Heat process isn’t only limited to cooking meat — chefs can harness the low, consistent heat to prepare stock, clarify butter, and dry fruit.
Due to the Cook & Hold’s extremely low emissions, added ventilation isn’t necessary. This can save kitchens about $30 a day in operating costs, eliminating the hassle and expense of installing a hood.
Controls on Alto-Shaam ovens are intuitive and precise, allowing users to find their ideal settings and know that they’ll taste the same delicious results. Temperature, cooking time, and holding settings can be selected from one screen.
With the deluxe control option, chefs can also save up to eight recipes — each with their own cooking, holding, and time instructions. If the oven door is left open too long, Alto-Shaam’s SureTemp™ heat recovery system feature will kick in, regulating the oven’s temperature so the food is still cooking consistently. When left open for three minutes, an alarm will sound. For even more control on the deluxe models, an included probe attachment can sense the lowest and highest internal temperatures, eliminating the risk of serving undercooked food.
