Middleby Marshall Worldwide WOW! Oven Installation Tops 2,500

–Fast cooking, energy saving WOW! Oven cooks more than 3 million pizzas daily–


Elgin, Ill. (June 20, 2008) – Middleby Marshall is celebrating the installation of the 2500th WOW! Oven. The energy-saving, fast-cooking conveyor oven is lowering utility consumption and energy bills in local U.S. pizza shops well as globally on six continents.

Customers around the world are taking advantage of the Middleby Marshall patented WOW! energy-saving, fast-cooking technology as nearly 40 percent of the WOW! Oven sales are outside of the U.S. With all worldwide certifying agency approvals in place and global service providers trained and having parts available, the ovens are being installed at a fast rate in countries all over the world.

“The WOW! Oven is cooking more than 3 million pizzas every day and saving operators energy costs around the globe,” said Middleby Marshall President Mark Sieron. “We’re saving all of our operators at total of nearly $30 million in energy costs every year when they use the WOW! Oven.”

Four models of WOW! Ovens are available, the 40-inch bake chamber and the 32” belt PS640 and the 70-inch belt PS670. Both have cook times of 3-5 minutes and go into a sleep mode to save energy when the energy eye senses no product to be cooked on the conveyor. Availability of the countertop WOW! Oven, the P624 and the wide belt PS640-24 will be available to international customers in August.

Middleby Marshall is the world leader in conveyor ovens. Information on the WOW! Oven and Middleby Marshall can be found by visiting their website at www.middleby-marshall.com or www.wowoven.com.
