Winner, Winner, Fresh Baked Dinner! The WP Riehle ITES Wins a 2016 Kitchen Innovations Award

Well… we’ve been extolling the virtues of our WP Riehle ITES since its debut in May of 2015. And now, the judges agree. When the National Restaurant Association announced its 2016 Kitchen Innovations Award recipients, our WP Riehle was a winner.

From the NRA’s Press Release:

February 10, 2016

(Chicago) The National Restaurant Association today announces the recipients of the 2016 Kitchen Innovations (KI) Awards, honoring forward-thinking equipment and technologies that increase efficiencies and productivity for back-of-the-house operations and benefit restaurant operators. Each recipient and their product will be showcased in the interactive Kitchen Innovations Pavilion at the 2016 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show, held from May 21-24 in Chicago at McCormick Place.

“KI Award recipients exemplify the advancements from foodservice industry professionals that solve the complex challenges of day-to-day back-of-house operations,” says Lisa Ingram, Convention Chair for NRA Show 2016 and President and CEO of White Castle System, Inc. “Recognition by our esteemed independent panel of judges, who have a wealth of combined institutional knowledge, underscores the true innovation of the award recipients and their contribution to making our foodservice industry even better.”

The 2016 KI Award recipients reflect the trends and topics most important to foodservice operators today. The 25 selected innovations address operator concerns from labor, energy and water efficiency to food safety, sanitation, cross-functionality and space-saving. New software and new materials continue to make new solutions possible.

This is what the NRA judges had to say about the ITES:

Fresh from Germany, the high speed ITES oven takes food straight from frozen to baked using a new, patent pending modification of infrared heating elements that alter the IR wavelengths. This alteration allows the heat to penetrate deep into frozen products, baking from the inside out while retaining product moisture.

We so agree. Will we see you at the NRA? We’ll be in Booth # 4678 Be sure to look for the ITES at the interactive Kitchen Innovations Pavilion at the 2016 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show, from May 21st through the 24th at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Other awards for our beloved WP ITES High Speed oven include the prestigious iba Trophy.
