Getting green and speedy
By Laura Aiken
WP Bakery Group will showcase a new energy efficient oven at the upcoming IBA show in Germany. The Rothoterm Green boasts significant energy savings over its predecessor model.
The circulating air flow is the same but the heat exchanger has been omitted and replaced by rearranged electric heating elements for better air flow. In combination with the WP Thermopackage insulation concept, energy consumption is reduced up to 25 per cent.
WP will also debut the Riehle ITES high speed oven at IBA. The oven defrosts and cooks frozen baked goods in about 10 to 25 per cent of the time when compared to conventional cooking methods, reports WP in a press release. The Riehle ITES uses specialized infrared (patent pending) technology to quickly defrost frozen baked goods, then bake, toast, crisp and/or brown the product.
The IBA show runs September 12-17 in Munich, Germany.
