Unox has announced the launch of X-Generation, its BAKERTOP-X oven, a combi oven that is evolving the company’s portfolio of professional combi oven.
Featuring two new models – BAKERTOP-X and CHEFTOP-X, X-Generation is the result of a project that spanned more than three years and saw the combination of expertise of over 50 dedicated engineers, physicists, chemists and chefs. Drawing inspiration from how we use our smartphones, these latest ovens feature Digital.ID, a fast and fully customisable interface, complete with connectivity and enhanced with AI.
BAKERTOP-X is an oven designed specifically for the needs of bakeries and pastry shops while CHEFTOP-X is for use in foodservice. BAKERTOP-X asks for operators’ feedback after each cooking process to improve and align cooking performance with expectations. The ovens are also equipped with HEY.Unox where chefs can voice operate their ovens or make use of the optional OPTIC.Cooking accessory which enables operators to place a tray into the chamber while letting the oven identify and start the correct program.
The new X-Generation ovens from Unox are designed with the goal of minimising their environmental impact, both during production and particularly when in use. Complete with smart functions including SMART.Energy, a system that is capable of reducing and optimising consumption and CO2 emissions, even when the oven is running empty.
In addition, the technology in the oven can provide personalised suggestions to users on how to be greener while cooking, for example by warning if the door has been open for too long. It is also completed with enhanced insulation technology to further limit heat loss.
“Innovation runs to the very heart of our business. From striving to develop commercial cooking equipment with energy efficiency and sustainability at its core, to technology that supports operators, drives consistency and delivers precision time and time again. Continuing to explore the possibilities in terms of manufacturing and technological evolution, we’re proud to launch X-Generation – the most powerful range of combi ovens ever,” commented Scott Duncan, Managing Director of Unox UK. “BAKERTOP-X™ really is the next generation in professional cooking. An oven that understands the way a chef speaks, in whatever language and can learn how and when they are used to drive efficiency and consistency in the kitchen. Equipped with state-of-the-art Digital.ID™ technology, the ovens come with ‘HEY.Unox’, enabling chefs to operate the oven with their voice.
“First seen on SPEED-X™, Digital.ID™ is a truly remarkable user interface that can now also be found on BAKERTOP-X™. Operated from the oven or via an app for complete remote access at any time. Built on a user profile format, operators can log into any connected Unox Digital ID™ enabled oven, anywhere in the world to instantly see their own customised layout including language, buttons, menus and favourite recipes.”
