Cathal O’Connor, MD of Amandine (Dungarvan, Waterford) has invested in a rack oven from Double D Food Engineering. Double D’s Revorack Ovens bake 25 racks of French confectionery a week.

“Once you’ve perfected the baking programme for each product, you can enter baking parameters into the controller,” he says. The BACS II programmable controller enables the range of Amandine’s products – from croissants to meringues – to be baked.
