Panasonic will be unveiling its new Speed Convection Oven at the Commercial Kitchen show, at the NEC, in June. Iain Phillips, sales and marketing manager, Panasonic UK, said the Speed Convection Oven was originally designed in conjunction with Starbucks in Japan and has been used across their estate for the past two years. After consultation with UK operators, it has now been developed to suit the British market.

He explained: "The SCV-2 Speed Convection Oven gives us the opportunity to offer an affordable solution to those seeking an oven with excellent build quality that will perform in a high- throughput environment."
