The morning began with Vikram Goel, Managing Director, UNOX India, inaugurating the event in the presence of Matt Roberts, Director of Customer Experience, UNOX and was also graced by Mr Suraj Bode from Star Opus and Mr Ranjeev Sinha from Grandmaster.
Director of Customer Experience Mr Matt Roberts, who had flown in from UNOX‘s UAE headquarters for the launch, signalled the beginning of the ceremony by cutting the ribbon, joined by Mr Vikram Goel, MD, UNOX India.
UNOX implements familiar technologies from its existing cooking equipment range, such as Steam.Maxi and Adaptive. Cooking, but many of these are also optimised for the new Speed-X. For example, Multi. Time programming, the technology that allows users to cook different products at different times in the same oven, will allow up to 10 dishes to be prepared at once. This groundbreaking innovation removes the need for compromise and enhances the efficiency and standard of cooking operations. It cooks food 60% faster than its predecessors, thanks to its two fans, and because of the revolutionary HYPER. Speed technology, which combines steam, air, and microwave. Food can be heated, cooked, and browned in seconds. For instance, a sea bass fillet is completely cooked in just 90 seconds, and a toasted chicken tikka kebab is ready in just 180 seconds.
The event was graced by eminent personalities from Culinary and Hospitality Experts and Veterans, Chef Consultants, Business domain and notable dealers which include The Sagtani Exim Pvt. Ltd., International Equipment Company, Wang Professionals Pvt. Ltd., Venus K Equipments, Unique Steel Products, SS Fortune, Techmate Industries and leading media houses.
Dealer partners from around India, and the world were present to hear UNOXs management team discuss the companys goals for international expansion before taking a tour of the lounge, watching the live demonstrations of the product followed by a lavish tasting session.
UNOX has also equipped Speed-X with cutting-edge technology, such as advanced Digital.ID operating system which utilises artificial intelligence along with Hyper.Connection, and an intuitive interface that would allow users to control and navigate through the oven easily.
“The Speed-X is the first oven to combine the capabilities of a combi oven and those of a speed oven, with an additional self-cleaning capability,” according to MrVikram Goel, MD of UNOX India. He added, “This not only increases the ovens functionality beyond what was previously conceivable but also enables a remarkable rise in commercial kitchen efficiency.”
Commenting upon the launch, Mr Ranjeev Sinha from Grandmaster commented, “I always felt that bakery is one segment where right focus was missing. Goa in particular has always been very crazy about their breads and desserts. To help bakers and specially the home bakers, I am happy to have opened today UNOX lounge at alto Porvorim Goa. This is a place where a baker can come bake things and then choose the right oven from the large range that UNOX has. This lounge will be open 6 days a week.”
