We are contemplating a major purhase of a new oven primarily for baking breads. We will do some pastries as well.

My partner wants a revolving deck oven for use in all applications.

I want a stone deck oven with steam injection capabilities and a convection oven for the pastries.

Which would you go for and why?


Thanks

I know what a convection oven is, and I understand the whole steam injection idea, but what is a revolving deck oven?? What is its purpose, what does it do? I've never heard of it before. :confused:

Roon, the revolving deck oven is like having an oven with a ferris wheel in it. It has probably four or six decks, that move around almost like a spit, and it's great for mass production of bread, because you can cook about 100 loaves at a time.

A revolving deck oven is nice for volume, but features like steam injection and convection can make a difference in quality.

Espresso,
your partner is right. A revolving deck oven w/steam is the best for all applications-breads and pastries.I had one with 6 decks and could put 24 sheet pans at one time. I bought a 15 years old
oven -gas and used it for 10 years and never had any problems
with it. The only maintenance is to grease the bearings every few
month

Thanks for your response.

Have you ever baked your bread right on the stones of the racks?
if so what did you think of the final product?

I have never seen an oven of this type with steam injection or perhaps just never seen it used. Can you elaborate on this or on how you inject steam for the first 10 mins or so of baking bread.

Thanks
Keith and Lisa

espresso,

You will usually find stem injection ovens in professional bakeries and restaurants as opposed to domestic homes.
