Duke ’s 613, 613Q and E-series convection ovens with ‘V electromechanical controls’ or ‘XX electronic programmable controls’ met the ENERGY STAR® efficiency requirements in categories of product performance, cost savings and reduced energy consumption.
Duke’s ovens tout less energy input than other similar products on the market, offering up to 35% energy savings. Duke’s high storage capacity commercial refrigeration system has also received the ENERGY STAR®.
“Duke is proud to be an ENERGY STAR® partner,” said Jack Hake, Duke President and CEO. “We are committed to creating products that help our customers serve the highest quality food with the smallest environmental impact.”
