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.
