Equipment supplier EPP has launched the MIWE Gusto Snack oven into the UK market.

The oven can be used for baking as well as steaming, grilling and reheating, and is suitable for foodservice operators and retailers.

EPP said the oven is space-saving, mitigating the issue of outlets being “pushed for space” by enabling them to “offer a wide range of warm snacks and dishes without taking up extra space”. It holds up to three 44.5 x 35cm baking trays, which are loaded lengthways.

Steve Merritt, managing director of EPP, added that when the product was in situ, the aroma of freshly baked bread and the sight of hot, steaming savouries would offer a culinary delight for customers in foodservice outlets and convenience stores, as well as high street bakeries.

In addition to baking, the Gusto Snack also has a steamer, which can be combined with hot air for reheating meat, fish and vegetables.
