23 Apr 12 Dual fuel ranges – Capital Cooking Connoisseurian Series


Capital Cooking is debuting its new dual fuel range cookers at the 2012 KBIS which runs from April 24 to April 26. The new dual fuel Connoisseurian Series incorporates the best technology from company electric ovens and gas ranges, offering both open and sealed burner versions – all self clean in 30″, 36″, 48″ and 60″ configurations. As dual fuel range is getting more popular, Capital Cooking Connoisseurian Series is offering the best attributes of its built-in electric wall ovens and gas cooktops.

Capital engineers incorporated a two-speed cooling fan system in the oven of these dual fuel range cookers. The high, noisier speed is only triggered when the oven is at extreme high temperatures over a long period of time, such as operating the self cleaning mode. Under the normal cooking conditions with temperatures under 400°F for under 2 hours, only the low speed cooling fan that is very quiet and not noticeable in a busy kitchen environment is working.

In addition, Connoisseurian ranges feature the larger ovens, ranking them amongst the top usable capacity of all dual fuel ranges on the market. All primary ovens have Capital exclusive MoistRoast cooking feature that uses moisture, not steam, to produce perfect, moist roasting and baking, and also features Capital popular motorized rotisserie system. The secondary ovens in the 48″ and 60″ sizes are fully functioning with bake, broil, convection, roast and self clean. And for safety, the engineering staff tested the external temperature of a fully operational baking oven and found it to be up to 30°F cooler-to-the-touch than many competitive models.

Offering both open burner and sealed burner system options in the dual fuel Connoisseurian line will appeal to all cooking styles and preferences. The open burner system developed for Capital Culinarian line is ideal for the home chef looking for restaurant power and advanced cooking functionality made possible by the open flame. The sealed burner system that Capital uses in its Precision Series is the most common gas cooktop system where the flame is controlled by burner caps of different sizes. Customers can choose which style of Connoisseurian is appropriate for their own lifestyle.

The dual fuel ranges from Capital Cooking will be sold in 10 standard colors with custom finishes available as well, throughout the United States and Canada at specialty retailers during Summer 2012.
