Equipment Trend: New touch-screen enabled food and beverage equipment reduces training and the need for high-skilled labor
Manitowoc is changing the face of food, beverage and ice equipment with intuitive controls that take the mystery out of operating this sophisticated, full-featured equipment.
Manitowoc’s exclusive EasyToUCH™ for example, is now being integrated into more types of equipment than ever. From the Convotherm Mini to Merrychef’s eikon series to the Multiplex Blend-In-Cup – operators will find an easy to use, icon-based touch screen that makes operating any of this equipment a breeze. Being icon-based, waste due to operator error is reduced while consistency and quality of the food and beverage is increased.

The Convotherm Mini:
A combi oven in a C-store? Really?
Really. The Convotherm Mini is the world’s smallest fully functioning Combi Oven. Combi Ovens combine convection heat and steam for outstanding results across most major food types -- from baked goods to meat and vegetables. This cooking technology wasn’t even a consideration for smaller foodservice operations until Convotherm created the Mini. At only three square feet of space, the Mini is now making its way into restaurants and foodservice outlets of all sizes. And, the Mini uses the EasyToUCH™ control panel – a visual-based touch-screen that makes using the oven easy. Simply load and touch a photo on the screen of the item being cooked. Learn more here...
