Commercial Convection Ovens Bake Faster And More Evenly
Commercial ovens are the centerpiece of cooking equipment since they can roast, broil, or bake vast quantities of food. Commercial convection ovens are among the most efficient member of the oven family. They are cleverly designed to help cook and bake your recipes quickly and evenly. The built-in fan blows and circulates hot air throughout the baking chamber, preventing burnt or undercooked parts. Consistent heat application makes commercial convection ovens professional chefs’ number one choice. Cooking food faster at lower temperatures makes them restaurant owners’ first choice.
Why Do Professional Chefs Prefer Commercial Convection Ovens?
The primary reason is the even cooking of baked food. The fan inside commercial convection ovens spreads heat inside the oven equally. Every part of the food gets the same amount of heat at the same temperature. This consistent air circulation prevents hot or cold air pockets often observed in traditional ovens. Therefore, the result is an evenly crispier product baked in shorter times and with less energy. Thus, chefs cook with a piece of mind and can spare time for other tasks.
Meat roasted or pastries baked in commercial ovens are often in large volumes. One of the biggest concerns of chefs in restaurants, cafeterias, or bakeries is that all this food may not cook evenly. For example, contents on the bottom shelves may not be cooked, while those on the upper shelves may burn. Commercial convection ovens remove this concern. Plus, a convection oven is better at broiling food, providing a flavorful brown crust. You have a perfect indoor grill, whatever the weather. One more bonus is that you can use your commercial convection oven like a traditional oven by turning off its fan.
How To Choose Your Commercial Convection Oven
Stainless steel is almost the standard construction for the exterior of commercial convection ovens. You may choose between porcelain and stainless steel interiors. Porcelain interiors are easier to clean. They can be more expensive, and they wear out faster than stainless steel. While deciding on the control type, it is wiser to consider ease of use. Baking, roasting, or broiling requires different settings. With digitally programmable controls, you can easily switch to the setting needed for each recipe.
Size always matters because space is often tight in commercial kitchens. Half or quarter-size commercial convection ovens are generally countertop models. If you have enough room for a stand-oven, your pick is a full/standard or deep/bakery size. These can also have casters for mobility. Finally, you can choose between two power types. Commercial gas convection ovens are pricier, but they heat up faster and maintain lower operation costs. Commercial electric convection ovens are less expensive to buy and safer to use, but of course, electricity consumption can be a disadvantage. If you need a smaller size, an electric oven can be preferable.
