Commercial ovens are all-purpose units that will cook virtually anything, from bread to steak. A wide variety of specialized ovens are available to cook specific foods, such as pizzas, freeze-dried meals or roasted game birds. Whatever type of food you desire to cook or bake in your foodservice establishment, there is a suitable oven for your menu needs.
Bakeries or other establishments that want to decrease baking time but retain a crisp or flakey product should consider purchasing a convection oven. Convection-style cooking employs a fan that blows hot air over the food to increase heat transfer.
Pizza ovens are essential to establishments that product high-volumes of pizza pies. Deck ovens heat product on a stone deck that gives a golden crust and traditional flavor. Countertop units are also available for operations that are limited on space.
Many establishments that want to bake a lot of sandwiches or small pizzas for a continuous stream of customers often use conveyor ovens. These pieces of equipment use forced hot air (impingement) to bake food items on a moving belt, resulting in crispy bread and warm cheese.
Commercial microwaves are an essential addition to many restaurants, mini-marts, and employee break rooms. They quickly heat and cook small portions of food for the ultimate in convenience. Although they are similar in functionality to residential units, they are more powerful and meet commercial regulations.
Another form of cooking combines a steamer, convection cooking and regular baking all in one oven. These combi ovens can cook or bake just about anything you have on the menu and are ideal for establishments with a diverse menu, but limited space.
