See What Sets Us Above the Rest

Halo Heat technology provides the greatest moisture retention and most even cooking. Equipped with a unique thermal cabling, the oven cavity is surrounded with gentle, precise heat to evenly cook food. No fans. No harsh heating elements. No added humidity. 

Consistent, even heat from Halo Heat technology provides a controlled, uniform heat source that maintains precise temperatures throughout the cooking and holding process. 

Place anywhere with no oven hood or outside venting required. Save up to $30 per day in hood operating costs. 

Natural meat tenderization on even the toughest cuts of meat. Halo Heat technology activates natural enzymes for a more moist, tender product. Make the most of less expensive, underutilized cuts of meat and produce a better quality product – at a lower cost. One hour in the Cook & Hold Oven is equivalent to 1-2 days of dry aging. 

Reduce labor and operating costs with lights out production. Reclaim 12-16 hours of nonproductive cooking time with overnight cooking. 

Free up your kitchen with the ability to roast, proof, braise, reheat, ferment, sous-vide, hold and more in the same oven with set-and-forget controls to provide a better distribution of workloads and relieve other pieces of equipment. 



- Maintain food quality. Keep product at perfect serving temperature with our commercial warmer oven and hold for hours without overcooking or drying out.

- Easy to operate. Cook by time with simple, push button controls. The cook and hold oven converts from cook mode to hold mode once set parameters have been reached. 

- Expand menus. Low and slow heat can be used to prepare items like clarified butter, confit, stocks – and much more.

- Sealed, static cooking environment traps meat’s natural flavor and juices, reducing meat shrink, improving food quality and extending hold life. 

- Set it and forget it. Reduce prep time and labor costs with intuitive controls and simple operation. Come back to food cooked and held to perfection. 

- Greater yields and less food waste with Halo Heat technology. Minimize food costs with 15-20% less protein shrinkage compared to conventional cooking. Serve more portions from the same cut of meat to increase your profit margin.  

- Easy to clean. Simply remove shelves and wipe clean. 

- Waterless design. Reduce installation and operating costs – no plumbing, drains, filtration or associated maintenance makes cook and hold oven cleaning effortless.

- Energy savings. With gentle, radiant Halo Heat technology, these commercial cook and hold ovens cost less than $2 per day to operate.

- Made in the USA with a commitment to quality.
