“Happiness is the smell of freshly baked bread…”
Perhaps the most important investment you make in your business will be your oven. Baking, after all, is the final testament to your art; and a good, high quality bakery oven will provide you with consistency and reliability for years to come. Whilst there are loads of ovens to choose from, deck ovens in particular are considered to have the most benefits for a bakery.
Compared to convection ovens, deck ovens are a lot easier to operate and control. They also allow the use of steam, which can be a great advantage when you want to create products with a crunchy crust.
There are a range of great Deck Ovens out there to choose from, including those which consist of multiple independent modules (meaning that you can bake a number of different products at the same time), those which are electric and those which operate using Gas.
Artisan bakeries particularly value electric deck ovens as they allow you to independently control the heat at the top and bottom of the deck (aka the top and bottom of whatever you’re baking can be subjected to different temperatures, allowing you to produce a variety of artisan breads). However, a gas oven focusses more on thermal mass and heat retention to produce higher volumes of baked goods for larger commercial outputs.
We have a range of amazing gas and electric Deck Ovens available at Vanrooy Machinery. Our most popular include the Salva Modular Deck Oven range, the Salva Elecsol Electric Deck Oven and the Salva TAV Steam Tube Oven.
The Salva Modular Deck Oven Range
The Salva Modular Deck oven range operates electrically and is recognised worldwide for its baking quality, flexibility and versatility. The range boasts industry leading features, programs and power-saving qualities to help you bake better. Plus, because the range is modular, you are able to add additional decks in the future if the demand for your products grows. All ovens in this range have guaranteed uniform heat distribution throughout the chamber and the independent modules allow different types of products to be cooked in each module. They are designed in three configurations (2 trays, 3 trays or 6 trays) and are available in 1-5 decks. You can learn more about the Salva Modular Deck Oven range here.
