Set and Forget: Overnight Cooking

The overnight cooking capability speaks for itself. Just load the oven, clock out, and go home. The settings are dialed in and ready for the morning crew to begin their day.

If you’re using a conventional oven, you’ve got to make sure you have the oven set just right. Time is not on your side. You must arrive and remove the product from the oven or risk overcooking or wasting product and time. 

Using overnight cooking in a CVap® oven lets you rest easy. CVap technology’s precision, coupled with its ability to hold for hours at an exact doneness level. This means your perfectly-cooked product will be waiting for you in the morning, ready to be served.

Almost any food can be cooked overnight, but it’s particularly beneficial for large proteins. Meats that improve with low-and-slow cooking, such as brisket, top round, porchetta, corned beef, and veal cook and hold with extreme precision. 

Overnight Cooking Saves Labor, Time, Food, and Money

Because the CVap works when you are not, you will save time and labor. Set it and forget it. Simply load your oven and select and start the cook cycle. Meanwhile, the CVap will continue on autopilot, with no outside input needed.

As with labor, the overnight cook feature saves time by keeping production going through ordinary downtime. It’s a capability that really strikes home with our school nutrition partners, particularly at Thanksgiving. Several professionals, from West Virginia, to Montana, to Kentucky have mentioned how much they appreciate being able have turkeys cooked and ready for their schools’ special holiday meal.

CVap ovens save food in multiple ways. First, of course, is the ability of CVap ovens to maintain food at just-done AND ready-to-serve quality for hours, so nothing goes to waste by overcooking. But CVap also boosts yields. Utilizing its low-and-slow cooking abilities, CVap reduces shrinkage, delivering every possible serving from every cut. And CVap technology can even tenderize traditionally tough cuts, like top round or brisket. Allowing these tough cuts to hold overnight slowly breaks down the meat’s connective tissue, making them cut-with-a-fork tender.

Money…well, saving money in CVap is a no-brainer. By saving labor, time, and food, you can’t help but save money. That’s not taking into account the fact that CVap ovens don’t require vent hoods or permanent plumbing, saving you money on infrastructure and utilities. They don’t require the costly maintenance, calibration, and repairs that come with combi ovens. In so many ways, CVap ovens can swiftly pay for themselves.

So, sleep well tonight, and the next, and the next…with the piece of mind that CVap ovens have you covered.
