07/11/13 - Among the many brands of commercial kitchen equipment owned by the Middleby Corporation is Huono, a range of combi steamers produced in Denmark. Middleby showcased its Huono PassThrough Combi Steamer at the 2013 Fine Food Sydney, with Middleby Corporation Chef Peter Arnold applauding its unique features setting it apart from other combi steamers available on the market. “Whilst there are many different brands of combi steamers available around the world, there is only one that has a pass-through door system, and that’s the Huono,” Arnold says. “It’s an innovation that’s available only by Huono.” The pass-through door system, Arnold explains, means that there is a door on both sides on the combi steamer. “This allows the operators the ability to vastly increase the food safety of their kitchen by being able to load from one side of the kitchen and unload from the other side of the kitchen by using the two-door mechanism.” Arnold says the product is a great improvement for food safety in the operator’s kitchen as well as a great advance in occupational health and safety. “The staff that are unloading the oven don’t need to be going into the kitchen where it’s hot, it’s greasy, there are chefs who might be turning around with a knife or a hot pan,” Arnold says. Arnold adds that the Huono combi steamer can be used not only by hotels and restaurants but also by food manufacturers looking to improve food safety, small supermarkets that carry items like barbecue chickens and delicatessens or small cafes where the chefs cook in the kitchen and then staff load the food into a hot food display.
