Meteor Ovens, Inc. is a Berkeley based company that has developed a proprietary, refractory, manufactured ceramic, Meteorite™.
INTRODUCING METEORITE™ REFRACTORY MATERIALS
Since World War II the advances in commercial cooking technology have changed the heat source — microwave, convection, impingement, induction — while refractory materials have become standardized commodities and there has been no innovation for decades.
Meteorite is a patent-pending, trademarked material that represents a qualitative improvement in refractories for these reasons:
- Very low coefficient of thermal expansion and therefore high resistance to thermal shock
- Fully castable in any shape or textured surface
- Emits deeply penetrating long wave IR radiation, reducing cooking times compared to conventional methods
- Has greater thermal conductivity than other refractory materials currently in use, resulting in more even temperatures throughout and much quicker recovery times
