Alto-Shaam has received the Product of the Year Award by Foodservice Consultants Society International (FCSI). The award is for the innovative technology in the new CT PROformance™ Combitherm® oven launched earlier this year.

The Product of the Year Award honors a manufacturer whose commitment to research and development has resulted in a truly innovative product that is a clear leap forward for the foodservice industry. The winner is chosen from ten finalists in the FCSI Educational Foundation’s Innovation Showcase. The finalists are selected by a distinguished panel of FCSI Fellows and ICONs, and the winner is selected by majority vote of FCSI Consultant members attending the annual conference.

The new CT PROformance Combitherm oven from Alto-Shaam features a zero clearance design, allowing equipment to be placed anywhere on the line, even next to open flame. Also, the PROpower™ setting allows for accelerated preheat and recovery times resulting in 20% faster cooking times than competitive models.

Alto-Shaam was chosen in part because of its ability to address today’s leading commercial 
kitchen equipment challenges with advancements in speed, energy efficiency, and versatility to conform to diverse restaurant layouts and numerous applications. Also available with an integrated smoking feature, enhanced cleaning system and menu capacity, Absolute Humidity Control and more, the CT PROformance Combitherm Oven is one of the most innovative ovens on the market.
