CVap® Holding and Cooking Equipment is Versatile

You can bake, roast, steam, sous vide, hold, stage, proof…all in the same unit. In other words, CVap equipment is great at multi-tasking.

How is CVap Different?

CVap rewrote the rules of food quality, because Controlled water vapor makes it different. Most commercial kitchen equipment uses hot air to cook or hold food. Some brands even add humidity to indirectly heat food. However, only CVap uses water vapor to precisely control food temperature. Secondly, it also uses air heat to control food’s surface texture. Together, this makes CVap’s dual heat system an unbeatable combo.

No, We Didn’t Say Combi

We’re not nearly that expensive. CVap ovens don’t have the high sticker price, chemical requirements, or expensive maintenance that come with combis. In short, no other technology even comes close.

Configurations to Suit Every Need

There’s a size and configuration to fit every need. For instance, CVap is available in Cook and Hold OvensRetherm OvensHolding Cabinets, and Hold & Serve Drawers and Holding Bins. Above all, CVap products don’t require vent hoods!

More Productivity for Less

Collectramatic® Fryers are designed to cook from four to six heads of chicken at a time, while using less electricity and requiring less filtering. In other words, you can produce more while spending less.

Time-Tested Design

Collectramatic got its start over 50 years ago as the fryer of choice for restaurant chains and independent operators. Its revolutionary gravity filtration collector helped extend shortening life and reduce filtration downtime. Meanwhile, our fryers continue to be the workhorse in the kitchen, providing trouble-free performance and consistent results, year after year.

If It’s Fried, We Make It Fantastic

Collectramatic fryers are perfect for chicken, fish, rings, fries, or any other fried food favorites. We offer both pressure fryer and open fryer configurations, so there’s a model to fit every menu. In addition, include a Winston Shortening Filter in your lineup and your commercial kitchen will be ready to rock!

CVap Flip Door Holding Cabinet

The CVap Flip-Door Holding Cabinet is the latest addition to our product line. It has several innovations that enhance functionality. For instance, large windows show inventory at a glance, but flip up out of the way for easy access. In addition, patent-pending hinges hold the window panels securely in place when flipped up, so that food can be easily tonged. To sum up, these cabinets are a perfect addition to any busy commercial kitchen.

"Most barbecue places go through a lot of aluminum foil and plastic because they wrap the meat to hold in moisture. We didn’t need either with CVap." - Chef Reed Johnson

Any barbecue chef will tell you, when it comes to great bbq, low and slow is the name of the game. CVap ovens do low and slow better than anybody. CVap's precise temperature control makes it easy to hit that temperature sweet spot, consequently breaking down connective tissue until even the toughest cuts are cut-with-a-fork tender. In short, whether cooking or holding, CVap was born to barbecue.
