Launched by Stoddart in March, the Kompatto comprises all the cooking modes of a great professional oven, while packing them into a 519mm wide footprint. This is space optimisation at its finest, utilising 40% less space than a conventional combi oven, allowing more work space without any loss in production.

Although considered to be of superior quality, “dry” steam is not always suited to every food type and desired result. When cooking large food items or food with particularly dense fibres, it is advisable to use steam with the proper degree of hydration and penetration, which will cook the food faster while preserving the tenderness. So far, only patented Steam Tuner system provided by the Kompatto oven can deliver options for steam.

Additionally, the Kompatto oven features a much smaller steam generator than those fitted on traditional combi ovens. The micro generator reduces energy consumption to just 1 kW. Overall saving is considered both in terms of money and environmental friendliness and equates to over 30%.

Kompatto ovens allow the user to determine both the QUANTITY and the QUALITY of the steam in the cooking chamber. The Steam Tuner system allows the user to adjust the degree of steam hydration to the precise level of dryness or humidity to provide the desired result.

Also, the Kompatto’s unique Meteo humidity control system allows for precise and efficient water consumption with minimal waste. Additionally, the water needed to reduce steam condensation is used in a more economical way, reducing consumption even further.

Available in 3 different gastronorm sizes, 6 x 1/1, 6 x 2/3 and 10 x 1/1GN, the Culinaire Kompatto range can service every requirement.

Like all Stoddart products, the Kompatto is a robust unit that is built to last and is therefore confidently backed with a solid 24 month warranty.
