What Is a Commercial Convection Ovenn?
Most commercial baking ovens are of the convection type. This is because ordinary commercial ovens for baking, which mostly rely on convective heat transfer without the use of fans, does not allow for cooking larger batches more evenly and efficiently as a commercial convection oven can.
Both a commercial electric convection oven and a commercial gas convection oven allows restaurants, pizza places, and bakeries to cook and bake larger batches more evenly and efficiently. Most foods, such as baked goods like pizza and breads (which will bake quicker and develop a superbly crisp and flaky crust) and even meats (which will retain moisture and cook evenly) are cooked faster in an electric convection oven or in a commercial gas convection oven compared to an ordinary conventional oven.
How Do Commercial Convection Ovens Work?
A commercial convection oven works by imparting heat through fans that force hot-air movement throughout the interior of the oven. By moving fast hot air past the food, commercial convection ovens can actually operate at a lower temperature than a standard oven and yet cook food more quickly. This results in a faster cooking time while saving money. In addition, the air circulation inside a restaurant convection oven tends to eliminate “hot spots” that can cause burnt spots in food. As a result, your breads, baked pasta, pizza, and other baked goods will be cooked evenly.
Another type of restaurant convection ovens are commercial impingement ovens. These types of ovens are usually used to cook pizzas. Impingement ovens have a high flow rate of hot air coming from above and below the food. This air flows directly onto the food that usually passes through the oven on a conveyor belt. As a result, impingement ovens can achieve a much higher heat transfer than a conventional oven. This is what makes these kind of ovens the ideal commercial pizza oven. Commercial pizza ovens need to be able to cook large batches of pizzas day in and day out but also produce evenly cooked pies so as not to disappoint customers.
Similar to an impingement oven, a commercial convection oven typically improves the transfer of heat and speeds up cooking from an initial cold start. This means that there is no need to wait for a long time for the oven to heat up, thereby increasing production.
What to Consider When Purchasing Restaurant Convection Ovens
One major factor to consider when looking to purchase a commercial convection oven is space. The kitchen in your restaurant, bakery, or pizza place should be able to accommodate the size of your oven. For smaller establishments, a commercial countertop convection oven is the perfect choice. However, if you have a bigger space and you are looking for a bigger production, full-size commercial electric convection ovens and commercial gas convection ovens are better options.
No matter what kind of convection oven you choose, it is good to know that any kind of food will cook around 25 percent faster when a commercial convection oven is used compared to a regular home oven. This means increased production for your business. In a nutshell, with commercial convection ovens, you can cook larger batches of products without sacrificing the even distribution of heat. And this can potentially increase the profits of your restaurant, bake shop, or pizza place.
