The 131-year old company also announced today a new Speed Oven, which combines a European Convection oven with advanced microwave cooking in the same unit. Bertazzoni today also released a newly updated Design Resources program, where architects, designers and trade professionals can find fresh content and advanced tools to integrate Bertazzoni appliances into their projects.

About the Bertazzoni Speed Oven
The innovative new Bertazzoni Speed Oven can be used as microwave, convection oven, broiler, or combination of the three. To meet the needs of today’s busy consumers, users can combine the speed of a microwave with the precision of convection cooking and broiling to achieve oven-quality results up to three times faster than conventional cooking methods. As a result baked potatoes will be ready in 20 minutes, compared to over one hour in a regular convection oven. Adhering to Bertazzoni’s commitment to green practices, the new Speed Oven requires little to no preheating time with advanced energy-efficient microwave technology.
“Offering style and practicality, the Bertazzoni Speed Oven brings a new level of versatility to our existing product line,” said Valentina Bertazzoni, brand manager and sixth-generation family executive for Bertazzoni. "By combining a traditional convection oven with microwave technology, the Speed Oven offers an amazing array of cooking options, all in one appliance. We believe the Speed Oven is one of our most advanced products to-date, combining Bertazzoni’s quintessential sleek Italian design with innovative new cooking features.”
The Speed Oven innovative features include:
- New Professional Series ergonomic handle and drop down door, providing a distinctive and modern design look.
- Fully flush stainless steel front and interior, with a conveniently easy-to-clean surface.
- Pre-set controls and automatic sensors for ease of use, taking the guesswork out of cooking.
- LED touch-through glass user-friendly interface guides users through the different modes and functions, such as temperature and cooking mode.
- Convection cooking, convection broiling and electric broiler combined with the microwave feature, achieve oven-quality results up to three times faster than conventional cooking methods.
- 5 microwave power levels from 200 W to 1000 W allow delicate heat when melting butter, or higher heat when preparing popcorn.
- Removable glass tray and rack for baking a moist cake or roasting a turkey.
- Suitable for 24” or 30” wide cabinets (30 inch stainless trim available as accessory).
