Commercial kitchens rely on speed and consistency in the cook line, and convection ovens help achieve these goals. This equipment evenly cooks food using a fan to circulate dry heat at high velocities.
Cooking Equipment Guides
In pizza operations, deck ovens provide results similar to wood-fired ovens when creating traditional thin crust pies. After about an hour of preheating, these units’ decks, where staff place the pizzas to cook, can maintain temperatures as high as 700 degrees F using either gas or electricity. Deck ovens generally cook pizzas in approximately five minutes.
Ranges are one of the most versatile pieces of equipment in a commercial kitchen. They can be used for almost any cooking task. While cooking, stir-frying, grilling, sauteing, searing, boiling and broiling can be accomplished on the range top, the oven can be used for baking, roasting, warming, broiling, storage, and, if refrigerated or freezer drawers are included, cooling and freezing.
