The radiant-heat quartz oven was evaluated to determine its ability to rapidly heat small quantities of pre-cooked frozen food and its acceptability as a backup oven in the satellite dining facilities of the centralized food preparation system concept. The oven was evaluated from a mechanical, food production, sanitary, and safety viewpoint and found to be satisfactory for heating pre-cooked food items in small quantities. Reheating time was less than half that required in large capacity convection ovens. Product appearance was good cleaning was easily accomplished and there were no safety hazards noted.
