Vulcan's VC5G Gas Convection Oven Receives Coveted 2017 NRA Kitchen Innovations® (KI) Award

Removable, dishwasher-safe doors and the highest energy efficiency in the industry are just two of the features that shine in this innovative piece of kitchen equipment.

March 16, 2017—The National Restaurant Association (NRA) has named Vulcan’s VC5G Gas Convection Oven as a recipient of the Kitchen Innovations® 2017 Award presented by the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show®. The independent industry panel recognized this innovative piece of kitchen equipment’s convenient, fully removable doors and top ENERGY STAR® efficiency score.

“Receiving this top industry recognition is an honor,” says Chris Bauermann, Vulcan's Business Unit Manager, Convection Ovens. “The VC5G gas convection oven is the embodiment of our enduring commitment to innovation. It is the only one on the market that can deliver so many tangible benefits to foodservice professionals in today’s demanding kitchen environments. It’s never been easier to maximize productivity while delivering exceptional cooking results.”

In addition to being removable, Vulcan’s unique “lift-off” doors are also dishwasher-safe to preserve the transparency of the windows for the life of the oven. This reduces the need to open them to check for doneness, providing consistent results and less food loss. The unique door design also results in cooler outer door temperatures for safe operation. The Vulcan VC5G features innovative cutout, grab-and-go racks for easy loading and unloading, and intuitive controls with digital time/temperature readouts and built-in diagnostics. Like all Vulcan ovens, the VC5G is built to be durable and perform consistently under the most intense professional cooking environments.

The KI Awards honor forward-thinking equipment and technologies that increase efficiencies and productivity for back-of-the-house operations and benefit restaurant operators. Convention Chair for NRA Show 2017, Atour Eyvazian, states “The engineers and inventors who develop these KI Award innovations work tirelessly to solve the challenges of back-of-the-house operations, to the great benefit of restaurant operators. The KI award is a testament to their contributions in improving the foodservice industry.”

Vulcan will receive the KI 2017 Award at the 2017 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show®, held from May 20-23 in Chicago at McCormick Place.
