What factors should a business consider when investing in a new deck or rack oven.

Oven suppliers will be asked to give advice to businesses that are considering buying their first oven, or updating existing equipment. Key questions will include:

  • Which ovens a most suited to a particular type of product (tin loaves, artisan-style breads, viennoiserie, cakes or biscuits?)
  • What considerations must be made in terms of the space required for an oven, and where it should be located?
  • What are the pros and cons of buying a second-hand oven?
  • How can a business ensure they make the best use of the budget they have for an oven?

The feature will also ask bakery businesses of varying sizes how they selected the deck or rack oven they use, and whether they are happy with the decision they made.
