Rotisserie chickens continue to be one of the most popular items sold in the deli section of grocery stores. The reason? They provide a quick and easy prepared protein that can be used in virtually unlimited ways for those on the go. And, with prices often below $5, a lower cost than a raw chicken, it is no wonder why they are customer favorite. And what is even more of a customer favorite is watching these beautiful birds slowly rotate inside a glowing rotisserie.
But, rotisseries have their down side. A messy and dangerous
clean up and high-energy usage often accompanies these beautifully roasted birds, ultimately eating into the profit margin. But is there a better way? A way that gives even better results without the downsides that rotisseries have? The answer is Combitherm cooking. With precision finishing, a patented grease collection system, and a energy saving design, here are four reasons why combi cooking wins.1. Increased Turnover
With about 600 million rotisserie chickens sold each year, deli departments often struggle to keep up with the demand, often resulting in the purchase of even larger, energy sucking equipment. By using a Combitherm oven in your chicken program, you can cook a full load of chickens in 1/3 the time it takes to cook them in a traditional rotisserie. More chickens means happier customers and increased sales.2. Better Quality Product
Not only does cooking chickens in the combi increase production capacity, but it produces a better product. With the precision and control associated with combi cooking, you can achieve the perfect brown finish on juicy birds that your customers will become hooked on. Do a taste test
and decide for yourself! And, by selecting a combi with a boiler-free design, you use 70% less water than traditional ovens, ultimately increasing your profit margin.3. Increased Employee Safety
One of the most disliked jobs in the deli department is cleaning the grease out of the rotisserie. And who can blame them? Traditional rotisseries have grease traps that become difficult and even dangerous to empty. By switching to a Combitherm with a patented Grease Collection System, employees have nothing to fear. This system separates the water from the grease and then extracts the grease into a removable container. The store associate never has to come in contact with the hot grease. Just unhook the container and roll it away for disposal.
4. Automatic Cleaning Capability
While rotisserie chickens remain a favorite, they leave behind a greasy mess that even the most dedicated employee does not want to scrub. So don’t! The combi oven has a fully automatic cleaning cycle that can be run on demand, anytime the oven needs to be cleaned. Simply begin the cleaning cycle at the end of the day, and walk away. Then, in the morning, return to a perfectly clean oven ready to churn out beautifully roasted birds.
