The first thing you need to ask yourself is what will your commercial oven range be used for? This will help determine the type of oven that will best suit your purposes. Different types of ovens have different temperature settings, so knowing what you want to use the oven for helps narrow down the list of potential commercial ovens to buy.
For example, if you want a commercial oven for baking bread or pastries you will need a convection oven that has a lower heat setting. A convection oven uses a fan to circulate hot air around the food inside it. This allows food to cook evenly and quickly without burning the outside before the inside is done. If you want to use the oven for high-heat cooking, then a commercial oven with two ovens is best. Two ovens allow for more versatile cooking since one of them can be used at a lower temperature while the other is being preheated.
Next, consider space. Do you have enough room on your countertop or will you need to make room for this oven? Commercial ovens can take up a lot of space depending on the size. A small commercial oven might only be 27 inches wide, but deep convection ovens can be up to 40 inches or more. Size should not be the only thing you consider though; it’s important to think about how much countertop space you have and how much space is needed for food prep. For example, if you need to keep more countertop space free, then it may be better to go with a smaller oven. However, if you can make more room on your counters, then the larger the oven the better!
When it comes to commercial ovens, bigger is better. If you’re shopping for a commercial oven range, it’s almost always better to go higher capacity than lower. For example, if you only need the oven occasionally and will rarely use all of its space, then buying a larger commercial oven might not be practical. However, if you’ll be using the oven every day and often have large gatherings and parties, then it’s a good idea to go with a commercial oven that has a higher capacity.
As you start shopping for the best commercial oven range for your restaurant or catering business, keep these tips in mind! Don’t rush through your decision and make sure to think about how you will use the oven as well as how much space you have in your kitchen.
