Catering Equipment Review Show, Season 2: Blue Seal Turbofan Combis

By Phil Scoble

Blue Seal have built their reputation on their Turbofan convection ovens. In fact, the Turbofan brand is so strong, that Blue Seal decided to use  the name when launching its the Blue Seal Combi range – the 40 series

 

What Does the Blue Seal Combi Range Do?

 
Combi ovens use dry heat and steam in different combinations. This allows lots of different cooking techniques and also to speed up the cooking process. A combi oven can do anything from a roast to toast, and even shallow fries. 
 

Who is the Blue Seal Combi range for? 

 
Any caterers who want to add speed and quality to their offer without expecting too many special features. These are simple machines and are therefore user friendly – if you know how to make the most of a combi steamer. 
 

How does it perform?  

 
These machines are available in two distinct types: manual and digital. 
 
The manual machines have very simple controls: heat, steam and a timer. This means that if you understand the principles of combi cooking – when to use steam and for how long. But if you do, they are very good value, well made machines that will probably do the job for you. 
 
The digital machines feature an LED screen with temperature and timing information, and also have automatic program for different types of food.
 
This isn’t the type of automation you find in more complex combis. Rational’s Self Cooking Centres or Lainox’s Naboo models have lots of features, but these machines are designed to be simple and easy to use.
 
The machines all come in 5, 7 and 10 rack models, and are only available in electric. 
 

Conclusion

 
So – who are the Blue Seal Combis for? We’d suggest that they are perfect for businesses looking to bring new menu options in to their offer. But they are ideal for businesses that don’t need more complex combi features. The market leaders like Rational, Lainox or Convotherm have models with a lot more bells and whistles. These are simpler machines. If you know how to use a combi to create amazing dishes, or are willing to learn, they are a fantastic value brand.
