Low and Slow Cooking With the Vulcan VRH8 Oven

April 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 165

When I was a teen and first began cooking and grilling, I was not so much concerned with my finished product as I was with preparing my meal as quickly as possible. Let's face it, when you're hungry as a teenager, you'll eat just about anything. Naturally I assumed if the temperature was higher, my food would cook faster. I learned very quickly that this was the easiest way to char the daylights out of it, and achieve little to no results through the middle. Thankfully, I learned the proper methods (and delicious benefits) to evenly cooking meat in my adult life. The Vulcan VRH8 Cook and Hold oven is a perfect item for slow cooking and browning meat, creating the most delicious product available. Additionally, its advantages are not limited to your food. The VRH8 also uses less electricity than a conventional oven and does not require all of the space of a traditional oven.

The Vulcan VRH8 is one of the easiest cook and hold ovens to use, and is perfect for those kitchens that love having their food cooked to perfection every time. It also comes with the rugged design that is expected with Vulcan products. This oven allows users to cook at 100-250°F and will hold food at 100-190°. Conveniently, you can set it to 'cook and hold', where it will thoroughly cook and finish a product, then adjust itself to a predetermined holding setting. Not only is this great for keeping food warm, but by holding temperatures at this setting, it will inhibit the growth of bacteria.

Slow cooking food provides many advantages to the flavor, texture, and content of your meals as well. This method will ensure the juiciest meat, with a perfect caramelization ever time. It also provides a natural browning through heat recirculation making all of your food aesthetically appealing to your customers.

The VRH8 can also be used to rethermalize food to consumption temperatures. It is perfect in health care facilities or cafeterias to reheat a large amount of products at a time. This model will heat up to 120 pounds of food at a time. Should you require a larger capacity, the VRH88 unit is available that comes with two ovens, a stacking kit, and castors for easy movement.

Once you begin using a VRH8 oven, you will notice the benefits almost instantly. You will see that your food has not shrunk in the oven, and looks juicy and luscious. You will taste the way it has retained its flavor and notice that slow-cooked vegetables retain their crunch, as well as their colors and nutrients. Slow cooking is also beneficial in breaking down tough muscle fibers in meat products, making them extremely tender.

The Vulcan VRH8 and VRH88 models are great for the low and slow method of cooking. Their holding feature also greatly enhances their uses, allowing food to be reheated to safe, edible temperatures as well as keeping freshly cooked food warm and appetizing. Should you be interested in making one a part of your kitchen, you can view all the specifics of these models at The Vulcan Cook and Hold ovens are guaranteed to make an immediate impact in your cooking world.
