The Award Winning Merrychef® eikon® e2s
By Carla Landi
Let’s take a closer look at the 2016 Kitchen Innovations Award winning Merrychef® eikon® e2s. This high-speed oven with cutting edge technology is being referred to as the smallest high-speed oven with the biggest performance. It’s igniting a lot of excitement among foodservice professionals who want to prepare fresh, hot food on demand. It’s also grabbing the attention of chefs and restaurant owners who want the flexibility to change menu items, and add food offerings, without losing valuable kitchen space.
The eikon® e2s has a very trendy appearance with an icon driven interface. It allows operators and chefs to pre-program up to 1024 multi-stage recipes for consistent, high quality results. Menu items can be easily uploaded with Merrychef’s unique MenuConnect® and a USB memory stick. The touch screen icons make it easy to use, and easy to train new people coming on board.
Not only is the eikon® e2s attractive in appearance, it features a 12” cavity in a 14” footprint. The small footprint, sleek design, and quiet operation, make it perfect for cafes, bistros, kiosks, and snack bars.
It couldn’t be easier to add this high-speed oven to your operation. We’re talking plug & play installation with a standard 20-amp outlet. On top of that, the energy efficient power management system keeps the current below 20 amps to keep operational costs low.
The eikon® e2s is the ideal way to cook, toast, grill, bake, and regenerate a wide range of fresh or frozen foods, such as sandwiches, pastries, pizzas, fish, vegetables, and meat. This oven can cook just about anything to perfection, and is up to 20 times faster than conventional cooking. It combines microwave and PlanarPlume technology for fast, even heating and browning. PlanarPlume surrounds the product with a rapid flow of hot air, accelerating the cooking process and providing uniform cooking with consistent results. It has a built-in catalytic converter, which eliminates the need for a ventilation hood. Innovative placement of the magnetrons, and use of air-curtain techniques, allow for a narrow footprint and cool touch surfaces. It offers best-in-class speed, heat up and cool down times, energy efficiency, noise level, cleanability, and cavity-to-footprint ratio.
It’s available as the eikon® e2s Classic in traditional Merrychef design and the eikon® e2s Trend, with color-coded exterior, soft edges, and smallware storage on top.
Imagine the possibilities for your foodservice operation. Its sleek appearance, revolutionary cooking speed and performance, energy efficiency, versatility, and user friendly operation, bring exciting new opportunities to foodservice operations and the industry.
It’s easy to see why Merrychef’s eikon e2s was chosen by the National Restaurant Association as a 2016 Kitchen Innovation Award winner. Don’t miss seeing this oven in action.
