Why use CresCor Cook and Hold ovens? – Bigger,Better and tastier roasts!!

Posted on May 30th, 2013

CresCor cook and hold oven There are many advantages to using low temperature CresCor cook and hold ovens, here are 3 reasons; Bigger! – the main advantage is the reduced shrinkage of roasts during cooking, as much as an additional portion or more of prime rib for each rib roast could be saved. Ribs roasts cooked slowly at 93 – 107’C will typically yield 10 to 15% shrinkage – above 176’C they shrink approximately 25 to 35% so a large saving is achieved. Better! – The lower temperature used requires less energy – whilst taking longer to cook less energy is consumed. By using the “Hold” mode produce can be loaded and cooked at night ready for next day service, so reducing labour costs (no more early starts). These ovens do not need extraction canopies so reducing the overall running cost of the oven. Tastier! – The holding cycle will aid in the tenderisation of meats and enhance the flavour, enzymes break down some of the tougher muscle fibres in the meat during this “Holding” process – lower cost cuts may be used and become more tender.
