Josper’s passion for open flame cooking is on display in its new Combo launch
As a company famous for manufacturing the very best in closed charcoal cooking technology for the foodservice sector, Josper has a proven record of exceptional craftsmanship and innovation. Now, in a move that takes everything a chef loves about an enclosed Josper oven and combines it with the raw speed and heat of open charcoal cooking, the company is launching the brand new Josper Combo.
Intended to significantly enhance the versatility of solid fuel cooking in a commercial kitchen, the Combo features a traditional HJX enclosed oven and the latest Josper Basque open grill, side by side. Positioned on top of a high-grade, bespoke stainless-steel frame, the combo gives a chef the ultimate flexibility when cooking with charcoal.
Operators can work with Jestic Foodservice Equipment, the exclusive Josper distributor in the UK to create a bespoke Combo that best suits their kitchen. Choosing from a combination of a HJX 25, 45 or 50 oven (small, medium or large) and a Basque Grill with a choice of one or two grill racks, chefs can opt for a versatile appliance with the capacity to cater for up to 200 people per hour.
The passion of barbecue cooking
With an average heat up time of just 20 minutes, the Basque Grill brings all the passion of barbecue cooking into the kitchen environment. Featuring a single or double grill with independent, manually controlled height settings, the Basque enables a chef to achieve precision cooking over the charcoal bed. Positioned alongside, the HJX oven gives the same wonderful smoky tastes, texture, and aroma from the charcoal cooking process, but in an enclosed chamber. The sealed chamber allows a consistent operating temperature of up to 400°c, whilst retaining the moisture in even the most delicate of items.
Offered with a host of accessories including fire breaks ,racks and grates, ash drawers and castors and with the option of additional cookware, grill plates and racks, the Josper Combo is simple to install and easy to use, yet delivers exceptional results in the kitchen.
“The Josper Combo puts all of the joys of charcoal cooking into one appliance. Chefs will relish the opportunity to cook with precision on open charcoal, whilst also appreciating the consistent temperature merged with the remarkable control that is achievable in the enclosed oven,” says Steve Morris, sales director at Jestic Foodservice Equipment.
“Thanks to the quality craftsmanship and superior materials used in manufacturing a Josper oven, the Combo is equally well placed in an open plan kitchen as it is back of house. Able to engage and fascinate diners, charcoal cooking not only delivers exceptional taste and flavour, but captivates chefs and paying guests alike.”
A standard depth of 900mm and a length dependant on the specifications of each unit ensures the Josper Combo fits effortlessly into an existing cookline. Operators can work with Jestic to ensure adequate ventilation and extraction when using solid fuel cooking, such as that found in the Josper Combo.
