Eglfing, Germany – The sun is shining, the days are getting warmer, and it’s time to get beach body ready for your next summer holiday, trip to the seaside or visit to the swimming pool. It’s also around this time that people ask for meals made using fresh, light ingredients that offer exciting taste sensations, so revitalizing dishes that are low in calories and balanced nutrition are a sure-fire winner as spring gives way to summer. And when it comes to cooking light dishes, nothing beats the Convotherm series 4 combi oven. Its mix of proven and brand new functions for quick and easy preparation of a variety of lean food, plus a full range of practical features including customization to suit each user’s culinary needs, allows professional chefs to produce low-calorie meals with a minimum of hassle.

ConvoSmoke – for that extra kick in the kitchen
Everyone’s talking about smoked food right now, and the Convotherm 4 easyTouch® table-top units come with an optional ConvoSmoke function to give dishes that special smoky aroma. The appliances are very easy to use: all you need to do is put a small metal box with smoking bisquettes onto the heating elements inside the Convotherm 4 to create smoke in the combi oven, and its unique Advanced Closed System+ ensures that no smoke escapes from the chamber, meaning that food can be smoked at any time without impairing other food preparation processes. The ConvoSmoke also offers high reliability, as the way it integrates into the appliance means that no external interfaces or connections are required. Control and operation is easy thanks to the icon-based easyTouch® full touchscreen, and the appliance also has multi-stage cooking profiles that can be programmed so that you do not have to be present during cooking. Another big plus is that the smoke remains in the cooking chamber, which increases the smoke concentration and creates a more intense flavor. Specially designed accessories, such as the baking and frying basket, are available for the Convotherm 4 to create the perfect smoking results, while the optional oven rack leaves a cross pattern on steaks, fish and antipasti to make the food you produce look even more appetizing. A further feature that makes life easier for professional chefs is the easy cleaning function thanks to the non-stick coating on the surface of the baking and frying basket and the oven rack. Convotherm’s fully automatic cleaning system is certified for unsupervised cleaning, which means you can go and enjoy your night without having to wait for cleaning to finish. Alternatively, you can continue working as soon as cleaning is finished – with no follow-up inspection required. The system also enhances safety, as there is no need for contact with the cleaning fluid when starting the cleaning process.
ConvoSmoke allows both cold and hot smoking.

The finest smoky aroma for fresh ingredients
The food-smoking function in the Convotherm 4 range gives even lean dishes that extra pep that makes them come alive. Take mango and tofu skewers: the exotic touch of mango combined with tofu smoked in the Convotherm 4 easyTouch® is the perfect example of how Convotherm makes producing tasty and low-calorie spring/summer recipes easy.
