An innovative new fast oven, which can produce a wide range of perfectly-cooked food in less than three minutes, has launched.

Able to cook, toast and reheat multiple fresh and frozen foods, Cibo’s versatility provides a full cooking platform for outlets, enabling them to expand menus, deliver food of a consistent high quality and maximise profit.

Cibo uses a patent-pending combination of three different heat sources – convection, grill and a heated base – to deliver fast results. Space-saving and compact, it operates from a 13-amp plug and is ventless. This eliminates the need for costly ventilation and makes it suitable for a wide variety of cafés, bars, restaurants and quick-serve outlets, as well as event and mobile catering.

Clear icons and an easy-to-use touchscreen mean Cibo can be operated by any kitchen staff, regardless of catering experience and skills. To help users get off to a flying start, the unit comes with six, standard pre-set programmes, which can be tailored to individual menu requirements. Bespoke recipes can also be added, allowing for menu creativity.

Cibo is available in four bold colours – merlot, black metallic, champagne and teal – as well as stainless steel, making it a stylish solution for back bar counters and front-of-house, or kitchens.

Chef Sophie Piccirilli is the face of Cibo. Her passion for food and menu creativity perfectly reflects the new brand, which focuses on cutting-edge technology, speed of delivery and fantastic food quality.

She explains:

“Today’s foodservice industry is thriving. Exciting flavour fusions, authentic ingredients and accessible global culinary trends mean an increasing number of catering outlets are able to develop inspiring menus and attractive food offerings to entice customers. But speed and quality are crucial, with many facing pressure with production. To support their creative flair, they need reliable, technically-advanced equipment to deliver. Cibo is the perfect solution.

“The innovative technology makes it easy for outlets to broaden their food offer and inject pizzazz into their menus, without worrying about speed of delivery and quality. With Cibo, you just plug in and go. Pre-programmes give users a helping hand and bespoke recipes can be added too. Cibo gives outlets peace of mind that results will be perfect – every time.”
