WHAT DIFFERENT TYPES OF Commercial OVENS ARE AVAILABLE?

Finding your ideal oven helps you bake, broil and roast your culinary creations just the way you like them. And you’ve got options: choose from freestanding ranges, slide-in ranges, wall ovens, combination ovens, countertop ovens and commercial ovens. Then consider things like convection vs. regular cooking, gas vs. electric heat, as well as oven size and style. This guide will break down various types of ovens, their benefits and how to pick one that will enrich your creative process.

FREESTANDING RANGES

Freestanding ranges feature a built-in back guard where the oven controls are located. With this back guard and finished sides, they can be installed standing alone, between cabinets or at the edge of the counter with one side exposed. The back guard also helps protect the wall behind the range from grease and food splatters. Freestanding ranges are versatile and models are available with features that run from the most basic to professionally inspired.

SLIDE-IN RANGES

Slide-in ranges are typically designed to slide between cabinets or other appliances to create a built-in look and feature easy-to-reach controls in the front of the range. Since slide-in ranges do not have a back guard, they are ideal for installation in kitchen islands or against a wall that features a decorative backsplash. However, since many of today’s slide-in ranges have finished sides, you can now install one almost anywhere in your kitchen.

WALL OVENS

Wall ovens install directly into cabinets for a seamless, built-in look. They’re often paired with a standalone cooktop which is built right into the countertop to create clean lines in the kitchen. Wall ovens are also available in double models, which will generally have more capacity than double oven ranges if you like to cook large, multi-dish meals. Wall ovens can be installed at waist height for easy access when putting food in, checking on it and pulling it out.

COMBINATION WALL OVENS

Combination wall ovens combine a single oven with a microwave on top, an option not available in freestanding or slide-in ranges. This configuration can help get your microwave off the countertop or free up space above the cooktop for a decorative hood or more cabinet space. Combination wall ovens also help consolidate cooking tasks, letting you move easily between the oven and the microwave.

COUNTERTOP COMMERCIAL OVENS

If you’re working with limited space, you have options beyond ranges and wall ovens. You may be wondering, can a countertop oven replace a regular oven? Countertop ovens are more than toaster ovens and can offer all the same functions of a full-sized oven, plus extra settings. For example, All Cater countertop commercial ovens let you bake, roast, convect cook and even air fry all on your countertop. Some people also use these as a second oven when they need more cooking space.

COMMERCIAL OVENS

Commercial-style ovens deliver restaurant-inspired form and function. They pair commercial styling with features like high-BTU gas burners and grill or griddle inserts to help keep up with your creativity. Commercial ovens come in a large range of sizes.

SLIDE-IN OVENS VS. FREESTANDING OVENS: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

The main difference between freestanding and slide-in ranges is the location of the controls and whether or not they feature a back guard. Freestanding ranges have a back guard that doubles as a control panel, while slide-in ranges do not have a back guard and all controls are located on the front. You can find both types of ranges in gas, electric, induction and dual-fuel options with a wide selection of features and functions.

CONVECTION OVENS VS REGULAR OVENS

A convection oven features a fan that circulates hot air inside the oven and around dishes to help promote even cooking and multi-rack baking. A regular oven doesn’t have a fan. Another type of convection, called True Convection, offers a third heating element in addition to the fan, usually located in the back of the oven.

WHAT IS THE BEST TYPE OF COMMERCIAL OVEN FOR BAKING?

There is no best type of oven for baking—it will depend on the type of dish you’re creating. For instance, electric commercial ovens tend to have drier heat than gas ovens so will be better at browning foods like biscuits, while a slightly more humid gas oven will help keep breads and cakes moist.

Convection ovens are good for bakers because they let you choose between a traditional bake or a convect bake. Convection cooking circulates hot air around dishes, which is better for multi-rack cooking like big batches of cookies or pastries. However, you may want to skip convection when cooking dishes that benefit from the stillness of conventional cooking, like yeast breads that rely on the expansion of air bubbles to rise.
