Induction Oven Takes Food Prep To New Level
Food preparation on a business jet is often a challenge. The new multi-function AAD4-27 induction oven from Iacobucci Group (Booth No. 2526) subsidiary Modular Galley System (MGS) is designed to make on-board food preparation easier.
The induction oven measures 11.3 inches wide, 22.1 inches high and 22.4 inches deep and weighs 108.2 pounds. The exterior presents a modern stainless steel appearance with piezo switches. The heating box has been developed for fresh, on-board preparation and is suitable for roasting fish and meat. Pasta and rice dishes also can be successfully prepared in the large casserole. Inserts are available for toasting, grilling and frying eggs. The re-heating tray will warm pre-cooked meals in standard aluminum foil in about 12 minutes, half the time of a conventional oven.
The AAD4-27 oven’s doors are equipped with steam outlets. Induction power interfaces inside the oven operate fans for the steam exhauster, and a filter inside the steam exhauster absorbs grease and odors. MGS claims there is an additional safety factor in that neither the oven nor any of its parts becomes hot during operation.
Also new from MGS is the MR4AA1 microwave oven, which the company claims is suitable for both commercial and business aviation aircraft, “a perfect complement” to its new induction oven. The microwave oven has an energy-saving rotating plate and a programmable digital pad with software that permits the user to customize heating programs, from popcorn to defrosting to baby-bottle heating. The MR4AA1 weighs 30.86 pounds and comes in three- and four-layer models.
According to MGS, both the induction and microwave ovens are certified and available for shipment.
