Choosing the right oven is critical to the success of your business. To make things worse the entire process can often be overwhelming. Residential equipment just isn’t manufactured to standards that will be able to handle the day to day wear that occurs in a restaurant. This unit will be working hard for your business all day long, so this is not a decision to take lightly. The two main types that we will focus on for this article are standard ovens, and convection ovens.
Standard Ovens are the most common type of commercial ovens. They produce heat at the bottom of the unit, which then radiates upwards for cooking. In addition to being a simple design standard ovens are also the least expensive, and extremely easy to use. The one downside with these units is that they sometimes do not cook evenly, leading to a lower quality final product.
Convection ovens are different than standard oven in that they circulate air through fans in the oven. These fans help keep temperatures more even, resulting in a more consistent final product. Unfortunately, the benefit of a more even cooking environment comes as a cost. Purchasing convection ovens can be much more expensive than standard ovens.
The Bottom Line
The truth is that there are many different types of ovens, making it hard to decide on which type will best serve your business. Searching for that perfect unit can be time consuming and stressful. But, buying the wrong unit can cause serious headaches down the line. Take the time to work with your commercial equipment provider to determine the perfect oven for your restaurant.
