Why Winston's CVap® Technology Is

CVap® (Controlled Vapor Technology), rewrites the rules of food quality. What makes it different? Water vapor! All kitchen equipment uses hot air to affect food. Some even use “humidity” to improve the amount of control they can claim. But only CVap® technology uses heated water vapor to precisely control food temperature. Pair that with air heat to control texture, and you have an unbeatable combo (no, we didn’t say combi – we’re not nearly that expensive). CVap® technology is available in Cook & Hold Ovens, Retherm Ovens, Holding Cabinets, and Hold & Serve Drawers. There’s a size and configuration to fit every need.


CVap® Programming

We don’t believe in clunky, hard-to-learn technology. Quite frankly, that is not universal. Introducing, CVap® Programming. Imagine having a menu of up to eight settings that can be easily loaded onto your CVap® cabinet by simply bumping your Android device next to the NFC reader or building your menu settings on your desktop and saving it to a USB. Load signature dishes for repeatedly consistent results, quick and easy. Save your LTO menu in one place so all of your cooks execute it the same way, shift after shift. Got a rotating daily or weekly menu for a cafeteria-style service? No problem – an entire week now fits onto a USB device or on your phone/tablet via an free and easy to use app. Available with 7 and 5 Series CVap Holding Cabinets, CVap Retherm, and CVap Cook and Hold Ovens.
