Product Spotlight – August 2014

Gas burners, pizza peels, smart tags and more!


Getting Smarter

With uZAPPit Smart Tags, pizzeria operators can print a full-color image on one side and a QR code on the other, highlighting a special offer, landing page, event, etc. It’s a cool, high-tech way to market to smartphone users and capture their digital data (name, mobile number and email address) once they accept the offer. These Smart Tags were featured on ABC’s Shark Tank in 2014.

Feel the Burn

Designed for wood-fired ovens, Vamparossa gas burners are available in one-, two- or three-burner electronic models to suit all oven sizes. Simply set the temperature you need, and the burner does the rest. Burners provide consistency, save on the cost of wood, and provide a good light source deep inside the oven while giving the same great flavor as wood.

Ready for Production

Lloyd Pans’ water-based, stick-resistant coatings offer excellent performance and require little or no special seasoning or handling.
