Ovens training and food tasting

Many events have occurred at Italia Kitchen headquarter since we opened the training room in April 2016: chefs trainings, equipment testing and cooking classes. For Italia Kitchen Group is a great satisfaction being able to offer our customers a useful service which complements the quality of our work by adding a required support to the normal sale of kitchen equipment.

This month, our training kitchen has been the protagonist of two interesting events: the presentation of X-Oven charcoal grill and Marra Forni pizza oven.

X-OVEN CHARCOAL OVEN 

The X-Oven is an Italian charcoal oven similar to “Josper” but with a different and better technology. It is equipped with an insulated chamber and an external, safe and functional fumes exhaust system, while its inner parts are made of porcelain stainless steel. Its removable grill drawers system is a distinctive trait. The drawers, mounted on ball bearing telescopic rails, have been designed to work at extremely high temperatures and offer maximum resistance to constant stress over time.

X-OVEN allows cooking different dishes at the same time at three different temperatures, all to the advantage of creativity and performance. In order to control the cooking process, the drawers open securely without the risk of gusts at high temperatures. The heat does not disperse, enveloping the food and preserving its juices and organoleptic properties. Working is easier and safer, the quality of the dishes is excellent and consumption savings are significant!

During the presentation, we have made a food tasting and our guests (chefs and restaurant managers) have been able to test the oven cooking some delicious food with the assistance of the X-Oven chef Mattia.
The engineer who projected the oven, Alfredo Mercurio, was present at the event in order to answer all the questions of the customers.

MARRA FORNI OVEN

Pizza training session with Marra Forni and its Neapolitan classic style gas oven was a real success as well!

Marra ovens are a perfect combination of craftsmanship, technology and functionality. Marra Neapolitan ovens are designed specifically to accommodate the high-volume pizza making of a true pizzaiolo.  The dome and deck consist of refractory bricks with 4 inches of multi-layered insulation in the dome and 8 inches in the deck. The oven features a 18 inch by 9 inch opening along with a stainless steel flue collar atop the dome. A round flue adapter comes standard on all ovens.
The oven requires a 2” tolerance in all directions, and comes standard with a fire-rated tile clay dome. The Neapolitan ovens also features a 14 inch landing on the opening, as well as a control located between the deck and the top of the dome for getting a precise reading. Oven can be vented directly to the roof or vented through a powered type 1 exhaust hood with approved grease rated duct in accordance with all local and national codes. For wood burning ovens, they must be vented as a solid fuel burning appliance and must be installed following a manner that obeys all local and national codes and is acceptable to authority having jurisdiction.

 

The result is a crunchy, easy to digest, real Italian pizza!
