New i5 Offering from TurboChef to Speed Batch Runs

Published: March 11, 2008

by Alex Woodie

Looking for a little extra power to speed those long-running batch jobs? Sick and tired of waiting for the batch to be over? Then you might be a good candidate for the latest in TurboChef Technologies' i-series product line, the i5, which is currently under development at TurboChef headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.

TurboChef is currently developing a new line of i-series "speed cook batch ovens" to go along with its other successful products, including the High h Batch, the C3, and the Tornado, which features speeds up to 12 times faster than conventional equipment.

But these speeds will be dwarfed with the delivery of the i5, which is currently being developed along with its smaller brother, the i3. Early beta tests of these new machines have been well received by new and existing customers, and will help cement the company's reputation when they become generally available later this year, TurboChef says in its fourth-quarter financial results announcement.

TurboChef, of course, is the publicly traded manufacturer of speed cooking solutions for the fine-dining, casual dining, and fast-casual dining segments of the food-services marketplace.

So, whether you're running mission-critical business applications, or preparing frozen cheeseburgers for consumption by your hungry customers, you'll really be cookin' with an i5.
