Industry Innovator Exhibits Upright Convection Ovens and Open Burner Rangetops at The NAFEM Show® 19

Hestan—the award-winning culinary brand renowned for creating the market’s most advanced, powerful and versatile commercial kitchen equipment—is preparing to once again turn up the heat at The NAFEM Show 19, February 7-9 in Orlando, Fla., at the Orange County Convention Center. This year, Hestan executives will be on hand in booth 238 to spotlight the brand’s award-winning commercial line, with an emphasis on its Upright Convection Ovens and Open Burner Rangetops — both the masterful results of calculated research and engineering in partnership with some of the most respected chefs and consultants in the country.

“We are looking forward to another great year at The NAFEM Show, and to sharing the importance of combining cutting-edge design and top performance with thousands of industry professionals,” said Chris Moy, vice president of engineering at Hestan Commercial Corporation. “Meticulously engineered and tested in our 130,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Anaheim, our commercial products bring more possibility to the chef than ever before – featuring modern, technological convenience at every turn.”

Upright Convection Ovens: Hestan’s upright convection ovens mark its expansion into yet another category of cooking and answer the demand from customers looking for larger production capability. Energy efficient, the ovens provide extremely consistent results at a larger oven capacity than previous models — optimal for baking in high volumes. With precise site lines and a low-profile convection fan system, the ovens feature a small back-to-front footprint, ensuring lineup with the same depths as the rest of the heavy-duty line.

Open Burner Rangetops: Hestan’s open burner rangetops are designed to focus heat towards the epicenter of its brass burners, creating an unprecedented balance for accurate cooking. The burner systems can produce power as high as 35,000 BTU/hour and as low as 1,500 BTU/hour — providing ideal searing, broiling and simmering — so the rangetops are as flexible as the chefs using them. Heavy-gauge welded body construction, highly polished stainless steel rod grates and the removable lift-out burner bowl ensure durability and easy cleaning, while providing long-lasting functionality.

  • “With decades of combined experience behind us, we are proudly sustaining our goal to remain at the forefront of the modern kitchen, and assist today’s commercial chef with producing both quantity and quality,” added Moy. “We are grateful for NAFEM’s invitation to introduce our latest food equipment designs.”
