Welcome to the ACP culinary center, my name is Chef Tony and today we are going to be talking about the AXP22 display. First of all, we are just going to take the display from top to bottom, and cover all of the symbols. The first symbol we come to is the on and off key pad, and this is something that is different than previously, it’s one key pad that is used for both functions, on and off. Next we have the program key pad which looks like a little book. This key pad is used to program items, edit items, delete them, into your menu, your oven. It also is used to transfer your user options, transfer data from your USB up to the oven. Also, if you’re looking to program a password into your oven to protect your menu from being changed, you can. The next symbol, the next icon, is for manual cook, you just press this whenever you do any manual cooking. The next symbol it looks like a thermometer, you can use this to either check your preset temperature, or to edit your temperature. Example, is it at 310 I want it at 520, and I just hid the right arrow or accept and it changes it to 520. Next we have the up and down arrows, these are used to scroll up and down within your current menu. For example if I am in program mode I can scroll down from the delete into accept, and if I use the right and left arrows, those arrows are used to navigate between the different pages of your screens. So if I press the right arrow, it takes us to the next level, press it again it takes me to the next level, and so forth. And press the back arrow, it will take me back to the beginning to the main screen. Next we have the green key pad which is used to start a cook cycle, for example when you’re in manual cook and you’re finished with your settings and you’re ready to start it, just press the key pad. The red key pad is used to stop and reset, so if you’re in the middle of a cook cycle and you want to pause it, just hit the red key pad and it will pause the cook cycle. If you hit it again it will reset the cook cycle, but if you hit the green key pad after you’ve paused it, it will continue the cook cycle from where you left off. Next we have the numerical key pad, and these key pads are just used to enter information, your settings, your temperature and so forth. And also, on each key pad, you have either symbols or the alphabet; these are again used to enter information to name your items as your entering them into your oven. The space key function when you are naming your menu would be on the zero along with other symbols there.
This video provides you with a quick overview of the symbols on the touch panel display of the AXP22 oven.
Hey everybody, welcome back to the ACP culinary center. I’m Chef Homunck and today we are going to be talking about the AXP programming software. To find this program and software, just go on the ACP website which is at ACPsolutions.com. It will be located on the AXP product page, its titled AXP Programming Software. So once you get it downloaded from our website, on your screen it will appear as ACP Remote Programming Interface. So you click on the interface, it will pop up and what you’ll first want to do is select a new program, go to new and select the oven, AXP22, then this is the menu that will appear. So as it appears right now it is in 3 levels. It has the top level, a mid-level, and the recipes. So you just click on the arrow and it will drop down from there. So first what you’ll want to do is name your top level, so we will name our top level “Pizza”. Then you’ll go to the second level and name that level “single topping”. Then you will want to label the actual recipe so we will call the actual recipe “cheese”. So what we are doing is we are programming a setting for a single topping cheese pizza. So to begin programming the actual recipe, first you will want to pick a temperature for the oven. So you can use the actual buttons which go up in temperature all the way up to the maximum 520, so we will leave it at 520, then you can go ahead and pick your time. So you can do your time for 2 minutes, and you can use the arrows either going up or down, or you can actually highlight the time and enter a time, so we have 2 minutes and 30 seconds and the total time is displayed at the very top. So the recipe is laid out microwave, fan, radiant, just like on your oven. So you pick a percentage on your microwave, so if you want 50%, the amount of fan, we will say 30% and the amount of IR we will leave at 100%. And if you go ahead and do this all the way down through all four stages, and they’ll appear right on the screen and it will give you a total time of all the stages. Next you will want to go take a look at your user options, so down at the bottom of the screen there are some menu items and user options. So click on user options, and this has all the options that are inside the oven. Now, if you just hover over the option, a box will appear and show you what is actually there for that option. So for our menu, in 3 level, for manual cook we are allowing manual cook, and just go through all the options and make sure whichever options you want are highlighted for your setting. You can also change the preheat of the oven, from 200 up to 520 degrees. So once you like everything that’s in the oven, go back to the menu and then we will go back and save this, hit save and save as, give it a name, we will call it pizza menu, and we will save that on our desktop, so now this setting will be saved on your desktop to be used at a later date. Now that the setting is saved on your desktop, you’ll want to put it on your flashdrive, so you can save it to your flashdrive and take it to the oven. So you take the flashdrive and put it into the computer, and we go back into the software, it’s recognized that it is in the computer now, go back the software and hit process, ASP20, pick the item you want to process, our pizza menu. Then you pick what you want to put it on, obviously removable disc, hit that, hit okay and now it’s saved onto your flashdrive. So we just exit out of this, grab your flashdrive and go over to download it into your oven. Now that you have your settings saved, you’re going to want to put this into the oven. So you take the flashdrive, there is a slot in the bottom, slide it into the slot, and you have to go into user options so you press and hold number 2 and that will take you to the options, you can just hit back and it will take you to the last option, option 17, and then highlight whatever you want to do. From the card to the oven, or from the oven to the card. Now we want to take our info from the card and so we highlight that, hit the book, it will say transferring, and the data is transferring into the oven, and when it is done transferring, done will display. Once done is displayed, you hit the green button, save everything, then hit the red button to take us out. Now if we view our settings we just hit the book, so our pizza program is in the oven, single topping is in the oven, and the cheese pizza is also in the oven. Our settings that we saved earlier are now in the oven. So there you go, that’s just a quick overview of the AXP programming, if you do have any questions, feel free to contact us at the culinary center. Thanks for stopping by.
One of the new features of the AXP22 oven is the USB port. This USB port requires you to download the USB programming software. This video will walk you through how to download, set up, and upload all of your settings from computer to oven.
Hello, and welcome back the ACP culinary center. I’m Chef Homunck and today we are going to be going over the user options for the AXP22. I’m just going to be doing a brief overview of these user options, so if you’d like a more in depth definition of what each user option does make sure you reference your user manual and that will define everything for you more in depth. Now first to get in to the user options you want to walk up to the oven in the off position, press and hold option 2 and this will take you to the user options. This takes about 5 seconds of holding the button in, and it will take you to the user options. The first option you see, number one, is double digits or single digit entry, number one is highlighted so you just press and go, you press one and it will start going. Second option, it will ask you how you want the characters to appear within the settings, so ABC’s is capitals, either all capitals, all lowercase, or a mixture of capitals and lowercase. Next user option will be the layout of how the menu appears. It will be 10 items, 100 items, or 360 items. The next user option is either allow or do not allow manual cook, you’re allowing manual cook so you can walk up and press the finger and then it will get you into a program so you can start cooking. Then next it will ask you if you want to save after a manual cook, so if you actually do a manual cook within the oven it will ask you to save once you’re done. The next user option is whether or not you want it password locked, if you want it password locked that means no one can come in and mess around with settings in the oven, that way the check mark is yes the X is no, so right now we have X highlighted so we don’t have the password enabled. The next user option 7 is what the door set reset, so if you open the door it will either reset the program or pause the program, X is so it won’t reset, it will just go back the menu. The next one is option 8, is key leave activation, which is how long to activate the screen, either 30 seconds, 60 seconds or two minutes. The next is key beep, so you can actually shut off the beeps for the oven, so if you already have a lot of loud beeps in your kitchen you don’t need any extra ones, you shut the beep off so when you touch a button, it won’t make any sound. User option 10 is the key beep itself, so it will actually show the volume - low, medium or high. User option 11 is the way the key beep is displayed, either one beep, a burst of three beeps or one solid continuous beep. User option 12, now this is the warning if the oven is up to temperature or not, you have the little warning sign with the temperature bulb inside, X again it won’t show it, checkmark yes it will show if the oven is not up to temperature. User option 13, just Fahrenheit and Celsius, you can put the oven on Celsius if that’s what you’re used to. Option 14 is clean the filter, the filters on the side it will warn you if you want to clean them or not, this could be completely shut off or you could have it every 7 days, every 30 days or every 90 days. Option number 15 is microwave only cooking. You can actually shut off all the other elements but just use the microwave itself when the oven is cold so if you wanted an instance where you just used the microwave, this actually allows microwave only mode. Now user option 16 is an auto-shut off feature, so if you do forget to shut this oven off at the end of the day, it will automatically shut itself off and you can choose between completely disabling that, having 2 hours of inactive use, 4 hours, or 8 hours and it will automatically shut itself off. The next user option, option 17 is loading a new program to the oven. So we’ve done away with the old card and now we are using USB ports, you can load everything on the USB port from the computer, and you can go up to the oven and you put it into the bottom of the oven and you pick what you want the display to be. So you can either load from the card to the oven and that’s what that displays, or you can go from the oven to the cards, if you like the settings on this oven and you want to bring it to a different oven, you load it onto the card and you go to the other oven and you load that in there. Now to actually use this you go and hit the book, and you say okay I want to load from the card to the oven, hit the book, it will say transferring and it will transfer what’s on the card to the oven, or if you want to go the other route from the oven to the card, you hit the book it will transfer. Once you’re done transferring, go ahead and hit the green start button and that will save everything in the oven. And just to get out of this, all you have to do is go up and hit the red stop button and you are back to the oven in the off mode. So there you have it, there is a quick overview of the user options for the AXP22.
If you would like a brief overview of how to utilize the user options of the AXP22 oven, then check out this video. There are 17 different user options so that you can customize this oven to your individual kitchen needs!
Conducting a Demonstration with the AXP-MXP22
Welcome to the ACP culinary center, I’m chef Tony Aguiar and today we are going to be talking about conducting a demonstration. Conducting a proper demonstration is very important because that is really how your customer will view the oven and its function. Now, it is really important that you do your homework before the day of the demonstration by knowing your customer. Now maybe the customer called you or you called the customer, but in either case you need to know a little bit of background about the customer. What type of food are they looking for? What are their expectations, not only of the oven but also of the demonstration, which is pretty critical because you really need to know both, the oven needs to also be performed but you need to know what they are looking for. Now there are certain different questions that you should be asking yourself before the demonstration. Things like how many people are going to be there, now that is really important not only because you want everyone to get a sample of what you are cooking, but also you need to know: how many plates do I need to bring, how many napkins, forks? You want everyone to get a sample because the people there are going to be decision makers about the oven and whether they will make a sale or not. Now, is the customer going to be supplying the food or are you bringing the food yourself, in either case you should try to get food in advance and do some pretesting so you can see how the product turns out and you can maybe do some tweaking before the actual day of the event, just to make it go smoother. Is the customer going to have the electrical requirements needed for the oven you are testing? Whether it is a microwave or the axp mxp oven, you need to make sure that the electrical is going to be there before the day of your event. Are you bringing the oven yourself or is the oven being shipped. All kind of important things, you want it to go as smoothly as possible. The other thing that is pretty important is what state is the food going to be cooked in? Is it fresh, is it going to be frozen, is it refrigerated? You don’t want to be testing fish from frozen if you customer will be serving fresh fish. You don’t want to be testing a 4 oz portion if their portion is going to be a 12oz. So as much detail you can get before the better it will be and the smoother your event will run. Also the accessories. Do you need a pizza stone, are you going to just need a sheet pan or pizza screens. There are a lot of different accessories from ceramic plates to sheet pans and so forth, just knowing what it is you need to bring with you or bring a couple of extra different items with you to show the customer versatility. But knowing what it is that the customer is going to be cooking is really going to be really important. Now knowing your equipment, the more comfortable you are with the equipment you are going to be selling, the better it is going to translate during your presentation. Now take for example, the axp mxp which is a high speed combination oven, knowing the different energies, knowing how they work, knowing the different features of the oven. That’s going to be really important in passing that along to your customer. The more information you know in advance the better it’s going to be the day of because you will have more time to answer questions that your customer might have. One of the key things about doing a demonstration is being able to tell people about the different application the oven is being used in. Again using the axp mxp as an example, if you were demonstrating for a convenience store, it is important you know other convenience stores out there, who some of the other customers are, who is using the oven. People don’t like to feel like they are the first ones to buy this particular oven that you are testing. They want to know that there are other people out there using it and its successful and it works every day and nothing goes wrong with it. Doing a brief overview of the oven specifications and those can be found on the back of brochures, not going into too much detail but just touching upon it. Proper cleaning in any piece of equipment is critical. It is going to be especially critical when you start looking at ovens like these, high speed combination ovens and it will prolong the life of the oven and ensure proper working of the oven day after day so you don’t have issues with them. One of the things you should also do is allow for questions and answers. Now questions and answers can come during any time of the presentation, usually people wait till you are done with the presentation but judging from my own experience they can come at any point of the presentation even at the beginning before you even start your presentation. So have some questions in your head, what kind of things can they ask, do I know the piece of equipment and how well can I answer those questions. So what are some of the different energies and what do they do, what is microwave do in an oven like this or in another oven how does it affect my food, what does it do for my food. How does an oven like this one, a high speed combination oven, what is the force there the infrared coil at the bottom what does that do to my food or to my product. How does the oven compare to our competitors, what makes us different? We are there for a reason, what is different about our oven why should the customer buy our oven as opposed to our competitors, a very common question. Who uses the oven, going back to applications. No one wants to feel like a guinea pig out there and really the only ones using the oven so knowing other people who use it is a really important part of it. Does the oven require a hood, if you are using regular microwaves no. if you are using an oven like the axp mxp, yes that is a frequently asked question. Now this is KLZ certified so it does not need a hood, it is still something you should still check with your local health department and your building inspectors to make sure that for the state or location you are in it still meets all the requirements. What involved with cleaning, do I need special chemicals, do I only have certain chemical to use on this oven or another oven or what do I clean it with a sponge a scowering pad, and so forth. Knowing those in advance. Using metal pans as different accessories. What can I use what can I not use. And one of the things that is becoming more and more frequently asked is are just energy consumption. Are these energy efficient. How much energy does it consume while its working or at its idle state . Now there are many different reason why a company choses a particular company to go with or a particular oven. It is really up to the person doing the demonstration to get across why hey need a particular oven, how can it benefit them, what can this oven do for them that other ovens can’t, how can this oven help their process their operation, how can it make it more efficient and speed up their service, decrease their food waste, reduce their labor…those are all things you need to point out to the customer. How can we make your operation better by using this oven. So overall the important thing is to be prepared, doing your homework. Just a recap, doing your homework before the demo, know your customer, know the equipment, you can go online you can visit the customers restaurant, know their expectations, know what they are looking for in the oven and also during your presentation. I’m chef Tony Aguiar and till next time, thank you for stopping by the culinary center.
The two most important pieces of advice to remember when you are planning to give a demonstration for the AXP-MXP22 combination oven (or any product) are: know your audience and know your equipment.
Welcome to the ACP Culinary Center. I’m Chef Tony Aguiar, and today we’re going to be talking about installing the new Teflon Liners, the TL10s. Now there are five different piece you will get in your kit: the fronts, sides, back, and the front door; and really the only things that’s required to install the liners is that you remove your shelf and make sure that the oven is clean. So again, you remove the oven shelf. The oven must be cleaned of any grease or any residue that is left behind just for the proper occasion of the liners. If the oven is not really clean, then you’re not going to get a good adhesion, and the liners might not last as long. Now, one of the things that I really recommend that you do before you start is to try every single liner; kind of do a dry run to make sure they fit in the location that they’re going to fit in. If you look at the side liners, they have two different sides, and the holes for the studs coming out of the oven where the shelf goes. Now the front side is going to be the side that’s cut with a 45 degree angle, and that is the side that is going to be towards the front. So before we do anything, we just want to make sure that is the right side for it, and the 45 degree cut, if you make sure that it comes up right against the front lip, the 45 degree angle on the oven, then there could be a little overlap if the liner does not come up to the front. So make sure that that lines up properly. Same thing with the left side; on the right side of the oven you have a 45 degree angle, and this one would go on this side of the oven. Now the liner on the bottom is labeled FRONT. You need to make sure that this side is the one that’s facing front. So you lift the serpentine coils, and you put that liner on the bottom, and if you can see that the little feet on the serpentine coil actually fall into between those little holes on the liner. If you did not do that, if you did not put the front side towards the front, then the feet on the liner will not sit properly into those holes, and you can get a little burn marks on the bottom of the Teflon liners, so just make sure that the front is facing the front, and you’ll be good to go. Now what I do recommend is that you use, the first piece that you do is the door of the oven. Now this will at least give you a little bit of practice on how to install the liners for the other pieces that you will do. Now when installing the liners, I recommend using just a plastic scraper with a flat edge, and this will just make it easier for you to feather out the liner as you’re installing it. Now to get going, all you need to do is to separate the yellow backing from the actual liner. So if you peel center to corner and just peel back maybe an inch or so of the yellow backing, we are going to start in the corner and line the liner up, and just press down the edges. Then we’re going to take our scraper; you can use one hand to pull away the yellow backing, and use the scraper to smooth out the liner as you pull it away. You want to minimize the number of air bubbles in your installation, just for better contact and adhesion of your liner, and you’re prolonging the life of your liner. So again, two things: making sure that the oven is clean and free of any grease and residue in the oven, and try and minimize the number of air bubbles while you’re installing the liner. As you can see this is fairly easy to install, and there you go. If you do not have a plastic scraper, you can also just use your hand as you’re pulling the backing away, and you can use your hand to smooth it out and to get an even, flat surface. Now if you have liners already in your oven, and you’re going to have the glue residue that’s in there, you can use a metal scraper like this to get off the adhesive before you install your new liners. Again, make sure that your liners, your oven is free of grease and any kind of residue, and you can use a metal scraper to get away the adhesive from before from your previous liners. Do not use the metal scraper at any other time, and the obvious ceramic white plates, but only on metal pieces to get the adhesive off your oven. So this is really all that there is on installing the new liners, the TL10s. If you have any questions when installing liners, please feel free to call the culinary center, and we’ll be more than happy to help you out. I’m Chef Tony Aguiar. Thank you for joining us.
In this video, Chef Tony from ACP explains how to best install the new Teflon liners into the AXP-MXP22 oven. Check out his helpful hints and brief demonstration.
Welcome to the ACP culinary center, I am chef Tony and this is chef Homuck. Today we are going to discuss our latest oven, the AXP22 and how it compares to the AXP20. First off, we’d just like to start with introducing the visual change between the old oven and the new oven. Obviously just by looking at it, you can see that the new oven doesn’t have the dial that the old oven has, we have eliminated the dial, and also we’ve gone away from using the touch screen, this new oven no longer has a touch screen. So instead of a dial, we have arrows going up and down, left and right. And instead of having the touch screen which prompts you for the different changes of the menu, we’ve gone to actual icons on the screen. And also we’ve gotten rid of the on/off buttons, the buttons are different. With the old oven there was actually a button that said off and then pressed the screen to turn on, now with the new one, there’s just one universal button for on and off. One of the really noticeable new features is just the display itself. You can see that the new one uses a fluorescent display, which is a lot easier to read and you can see it from any angle. As opposed to our previous screen which was an LCD screen which was just a little fainter. Also, we’ve mentioned the icons are different between the two ovens, as opposed to before you had someone program, now you have a manual button that is a hand pointing at the screen so you press that to do manual cook, and then this is your temperature change which changes the temperature of the oven that’s an actual bulb so you realize that is for changing the temperature of the oven. These symbols really went into place because of the language barriers when you do business worldwide, so just to cross literacy barriers. One of the really nice features of the new oven is just the speed of refresh and how fast it starts cooking. All I am going to do is just put my item in, and I can either just push the arrow down to get the item I want to select, or just push the button that is associated with that item, and within a fraction of a second the item will start cooking. It’s just very fast, the whole process it’s just one step instead of having multiple steps. Now when you first go to use this oven in the morning just like the old AXP, you want to turn it on to preheat the oven. But the difference is that the old AXP20 and the new 522 is that with the old oven you would see a rectangle that would fill up as the oven heated, now with the new one there is an actual temperature bulb that looks like the mercury is rising as the temperature is rising. One of the last features of the oven, you really don’t notice it on the outside, we’ve redesigned the wave guide system in the oven itself, so now our wave guide is removable and the way we adhere the guide to the oven is actually different so it’s not as critical the way you clean the oven inside and the type of scouring pad you might use. A few other points I want to make, is the way the manufacturer is laid out is a little bit different. With the new oven, you can see all four stages that you want to program right there in front of you, your time, temperature, microwave, and it prompts you on the screen, you use the arrows to navigate, you press the amount that you want, and it’s right there in front of you, you know what you’re going to cook. With the old oven, there was two levels, you had to navigate between the first and the second, this just makes it a little more user friendly this way. We’ve also eliminated the need for the old data cards that we used to use, you used to program the oven then take the card, then put it in the bottom of the oven and then load it within this card, which is a little bit more difficult to use. So we’ve done away with that, and we’ve moved to a USB port. The USB will just make it more convenient for you to use, so you can just download the information to your computer and you can come over here and put it into your oven and just upload the information and you’re all set. So there you have it, there is the major difference between the AXP22 and the old AXP20, we will be moving to the 22 from here forward.
If you thought the AXP20 was a great oven, check out the new and improved AXP22! It has convenient features such as a crisp fluorescent display and a USB port so you can download information from your computer and upload it straight to your oven.
Welcome to the ACP culinary center, I’m Chef Tony. Today I’d like to talk about our new oven, the AXP22, and how to program it. First of all, we are starting off with the oven being in the off stage, the universal icons, you will want to use the little book up there in the display, then you can either do accept the little check mark, or delete. Right now, we want to program so we want to check mark to accept it. And then we are going to program items into the oven. Right now we have several items that are programmed into the oven, and we want to program a new one. So I will go down to the item that is empty, which is item number 6, and then I come up here again and press the book to program. Now the first thing it asks you to do is to name the new item that you want to program. So we are going to give it a name, and when we are done, we are going to hit the check mark on the side for accept, and then it takes you into the setting mode. Now the first setting that you’re going to come to is your temperature which is going to be in the top right hand corner. You set it to whatever temperature you want, you scroll down from there to your actual energy settings. Now, the new settings are all in symbols so the first one is a little clock for the time, then you have your microwave, the symbol for microwave is the two curved lines, you have the fan symbol, then you have the IR symbol with the heat coming up from the bottom. So we are going to set our time for our particular item, we press the down arrow to take it over to our microwave, and we want to do 20% so you just press the number 2, and if you were doing 40% you would press 4, and so forth. Press the down arrow again for your fan, we want to do 80% so just press number 8 and we move on to our IR, our infrared, and we are going to keep it at 100% so we are done with our settings, we want to accept that so hit the bottom arrow on the right hand side to accept for the check mark and we are done. Now if we want to continue, adding items, we would just hit the check mark again to hit accept. But we are done, we hit the back arrow, so we are done with that, and our item will be on our menu and the number of the item will be put on our display. It’s as easy as that, and you’re ready to cook and go on with your day.
Programming your AXP22 oven can save you valuable time in the kitchen. If you're a visual learner (or just want a little extra assistance), then this video will help you make sure you are programming items the right way.
