In this one-hour presentation you will learn the technical aspects of new cooking equipment that combines heat transference methods. We'll start with a detailed equipment discussion, followed by practical "how to" information about where these innovative appliances might be located in both large and small spaces, the mechanical considerations to assure a satisfied client, and what to budget. Of course, we'll address the important question: Can these new ovens replace a full-sized traditional oven or a typical microwave oven?
