Success Stories By Paul Gray, DRC

Zhug restaurant in Cleveland Heights, OH had two small electric convection ovens in the basement and needed to increase production. With no way to install ductwork due to the age of the building, location of the kitchen and cost; a ventless solution was the perfect answer.

Chef / Owner Doug Katz was thrilled with the Blodgett Hoodini combination because he “loved that the oven could go anywhere” and didn’t have to sacrifce performance. The Blodgett Zephaire with the Hoodini option gave him more production capacity and the fact that it could go in the basement and not force him to buy a traditional hood system was a “very cost-effective solution.”
