Used in quick service restaurants like Subway and Starbucks, TurboChef Speed Ovens
are gaining popularity in other markets
. Well known chefs, like Charlie Trotter, are using them in their high-end restaurants with great success, and now the ovens are ready for home use, as well. The high-end "performance ovens" are incredibly fast and produce results that are equivalent to, if not better than, those from a traditional oven. A 3 1/2 pound chicken, for example, can roast in 14 minutes. The oven is incredibly simple to use and the purchase price can be made up in time saved alone. Price: $8,000.
