CLEVELAND, Ohio—The new Convotherm® by Cleveland Mini-Combi Oven Steamer has been recognized as one of the most innovative new kitchen products in 2007 by the National Restaurant Association.  This is the second year in a row Cleveland has received a Kitchen Innovation award from the association since the program’s inception in 2005.  The competition is judged by an independent panel of industry experts and is designed to recognize trend-setting kitchen equipment thought to be among the most innovative in the world.  Attendees at this year’s National Restaurant Show in May will be able to see live demonstrations of the mini-combi in the Kitchen Innovations Pavilion.

The Convotherm® by Cleveland Mini-Combi Oven Steamer is the compact version of the company’s 2005 Kitchen-Innovation winning Convotherm® by Cleveland.  The mini-combi offers the same features operators worldwide have come to appreciate in the larger unit.  These include the “Advanced Closed System” which automatically maintains humidity levels based on the type of food being prepared and a “Crisp & Tasty” feature that preserves moisture inside foods while producing crispier, uniformly-browned exteriors.  The compact footprint offered by the mini makes it perfect for operators who need to balance the power and reliability of a combi with space conservation. 

Cleveland offers the world’s largest and most flexible range of Convotherm® by Cleveland Combi-Oven Steamers.  With more than 28 tabletop or floor models from which to choose, and a host of customizable accessories and options, operators will wonder how their kitchens ever survived without one.
