All Combi Steamers of the Mini World Now Come in Series with the Door Handle "Hygienic Handle"
Beginning from April 2010 Convotherm will be equipping its mini combi steamers with the antibacterial door handle “Hygienic Handle”, the one which has already been successfully used with the +3 combi steamer series. This unique door handle is made of an innovative plastic material with embedded silver-ions. The antibacterial effect stays permanently unchanged and is medically and ecologically harmless. According to CONVOTHERM the hygienic handle is being manufactured in series and without extra charge.
The advantage is obvious. No bacteria or microbe transfer (e. g. salmonellae) from the door handle onto GN containers or plates. That makes working with the combi steamer especially sanitary. The hygienic handle is a further contribution to protecting the environment since you don’t need aggressive chemical for cleaning.
The company CONVOTHERM has its headquarters in Upper Bavaria in Eglfing, Germany. CONVOTHERM employs, as subsidiary company of the worldwide operating Manitowoc Foodservice Group, over 300 employees. The Manitowoc Foodservice Group belongs worldwide to the leading suppliers for kitchen technology. Since the company foundation in 1976 CONVOTHERM has been producing combi steamers with great technique and is also technology market leader. The company’s total turnover accounted to approx. 60 million Euros in the business year 2009.
