Industrial ovens are no way similar to conventional home ovens. Unlike conventional ovens, most galley or industrial ovens are capable of reaching higher temperatures that are required for cooking bigger quantities of food at a single setting. Some varieties are big enough to walk in to and they have racks that can hold food items for cooking, drying or fermenting. Choosing the right variety of industrial galley ovens can be difficult but we’ve created a short guide that should prove helpful.
Brands – There are thousands of different brands on the market at present and most of them are of international quality. You can try companies like Duke, Rational, Blodgett, Baxter, Lainox, Vulcan or Lang to find an appropriate model. We cannot recommend any particular brand as you will have to match your requirements to the features offered in the galley oven.
Features – Manufacturers usually provide more than two different cooking options and accessories in the same ovens. For example, you will be able to bake and broil in a conventional oven. However, along with that, some brands and companies offer additional features like steam, roasting, grilling, a wood container for roasting and preparing wood-fired food etc. Most commercial ovens are also convection ovens and they will have fast fans that cook food faster as compared to household ovens. Insulated galley ovens are also available and they may be a little expensive but they are very efficient and they cook food faster. We recommend you research the different features that are available before you consider purchasing a commercial oven. Dual fuel ovens are also very good as they can be operated with gas and electricity making the cooking process very easy. Other oven varieties that are available include rack ovens which are used to bake large food in batches, stone deck ovens or hearth deck ovens that are commonly used to bake pizzas and revolution ovens that are move the trays around as they cook.
Cost – On an average, commercial galley ovens may cost anywhere from $200 to about $1000 and more depending on size, quality and accessories. To save money, we recommend you check the back of trade publications, magazines and cooking magazines to find ads for used appliances. It may be difficult to find the right size and model but you can always find cheap models. You can also search through the going – out – of – business ads to find ovens that are just right for your requirements.
