CVap (pronounced See-Vap) refers to Controlled Vapor Technology, the engine that drives CVap equipment and makes it so different. Other cabinets are designed to heat air; CVap is designed to heat food.

Food contains water and behaves like water when heated. CVap technology is based on that principle, so only CVap enables control of both Food Temperature and Food Texture. When the water in the cabinet’s evaporator is heated to a desired temperature, it “drives” the food’s temperature until it reaches that exact set point and keeps it there without drying out, overcooking, or significant loss of yield. No other equipment can do that.

This is just a taste of the science behind CVap – come back soon to learn about CVap Gastronomy, why RH = BS, and Wet Bulb, Dry Bulb, Vapor Pressure and other sedatives. We’re going to do a deep dive into the GEEK ZONE… Stay tuned!
