Vector™ Multi-Cook Oven Receives Kitchen Innovations® (KI) Award


Alto-Shaam’s newest product, the Vector Series Multi-Cook Oven has been awarded a Kitchen Innovations® 2017 Award presented by the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show®, which recognizes the biggest advancements of the year in the foodservice industry.

The Vector Multi-Cook Oven offers up to four ovens in one and features exclusive Structured Air Technology™ for unmatched evenness and flexibility in cooking.  Structured Air Technology delivers high-velocity, vertical upward and downward airflow for faster, more even cooking than convection ovens.
