Manufacturer Glem Gas introduces new ranges, vent hoods, and dishwashers for the North American market.
“Original in every aspect, Forza cooking appliances look and perform like nothing you’ve ever seen before,” said Guerzoni. “Forza products are radically designed with profound tradition and modern sophistication, and are dedicated to the proposition that dramatically sculpted lines, inspired colors and superb performance will enhance every culinary experience.”
The initial Forza product lineup includes 30- and 36-inch pro-style gas ranges in seven bold color options, high-performance ventilation hoods in three height variations (11, 18 and 24 inches), and a powerful, yet quiet 24-inch dishwasher.
“The high-end pro-style appliance category has a lot of ‘me-too’ looking products; Forza is not one of them,” said Debi Hammond, CEO of Merlot Marketing.
Both the 36- and 30-inch models feature “the industry’s widest oven cavity at their respective sizes, with up to 6 cubic feet of usable oven space to fit commercial-sized cooking trays.”** Ranges include a fully extendable, telescopic glide rack to easily slide dishes in and out (ideal for roasting heavy items), a convenient soft-closing door system, and double halogen lamps for enhanced viewing through its uniquely shaped oven window.
The exclusive Infinito™ Grate System utilizes edge-to-edge cast iron grates and integrated bullnose to deliver the largest continuous, usable cooking surface on the market. With its flush edge-to-edge surface grate system, the amount of pots and pans that can be in use at one time is increased.
For precise simmer-to-sear heat control, the 36-inch model features three 20,000 BTU dual-flame sealed burners and three 12,000 BTU single burners, whereas the 30-inch range offers two burners of each.
Forza’s standard MassimoBlu double broiler, with 18,000 BTU blue-flame, heats the oven cavity evenly from edge to edge.
**I compared Forza to SKS 36″ Gas Pro Range that I know fits a commercial sheet pan and find their specs state a 6.3 cu.ft. oven interior.
