“When I saw the quality of the food cooked in the Blodgett Combi (grilled cheese without any butter!) and how easy it was to use, money suddenly became the reason I should buy it. I saw how I could save money by eliminating both time and products such as butter, oil, foil, etc. Schools cannot afford to hire gourmet chefs but the Combi oven makes everyone an Emeril overnight - BAMM!”

why do you need a combi oven?

A Combi Oven is a unique style of convection oven that steams, poaches, roasts, broils, bakes and rethermalizes. You can easily perform every cooking function and maximize results in our high quality Combination-Oven/Steamers. Blodgett Combi ovens combine three great modes of cooking in one oven - steam, hot air, and a combination of both.
  • STEAM MODE - Gentle pressureless steam cooks quickly and safely in closed, insulated cooking chamber. The Combi-Oven/Steamer eliminates dangerous stockpots boiling on the stove. Plus there's no flavor transfer.
  • HOT AIR MODE - Gentle circulated hot air provides uniform temperatures throughout the cooking chamber, assuring even browning on baked goods and faster cooking times as moving air speeds heat transfer to food.
  • COMBI MODE - Combination of steam and hot air - By combining both the steam and hot air modes, the Combi mode cooks up to 50% faster than convection ovens while maintaining the food's essential moisture. The Combi mode eliminates the need for basting roasts, reduces shrinkage while giving perfect browning and is ideal for baking hard crusted breads. Combi is perfect for rethermalization (reheat) at 275°F / 135°C.
