Bakery Ovens FAQ

What is the difference between a rack oven and a deck oven?

Put simply, you push a rack that holds multiple baking trays into a rack oven, whereas you place bread or individual baking trays onto a flat deck in a deck oven.

A rack oven is a specialized convection oven that rotates to achieve a very even and balanced bake on all shelves. Racks can be designed to hold different amounts of trays to accommodate taller or shorter products, so you can better maximize your production. Typically, a rack oven is paired with a roll-in rack proofer or retarder proofer, so you can easily roll a rack out of the proofer and straight into the oven. Great for all products other than artisan or sourdough loaves.

A deck oven is necessary to bake sourdough or artisan bread. They are also great for baking all sorts of products, including pastries and cakes and pies. A deck oven has multiple decks and a stone hearth to radiate heat into products. Gas deck ovens are for mass production and are often paired with an integrated loader, whereas electric deck ovens allow you to bake different products in different decks at the same time, and they give you more control over temperature.

What is the difference between a bakery oven and a pizza oven?

The main difference between a pizza oven and a bakery oven is that pizza ovens are designed to reach higher temperatures. A bakery deck oven is optimized for bread, and typically will only have a maximum temperature of about 300°C (572°F), while some pizza ovens will reach over 500°C (932°F)

There are other differences as well. Some of those differences include:

·        Steam: Bread ovens utilize steam injection systems to help achieve that deep artisanal crust, a feature not needed for pizza.

·        Configuration: Bakery deck oven will also be deeper, designed to work with a loader for quick loading and unloading of bread, while a pizza oven will often be shallower to allow for easy access to pizza.

·        Baking Surface: Napoletana pizza ovens have baking surfaces optimized to not burn or blacken the pizza crust

·        Doors: Bakery deck ovens have doors optimized for a loader, and open inwards and upwards. Most pizza deck ovens have a door that opens outwards and downwards.

·        Chamber Height: Each deck in a bread deck oven is often much higher than what you need for pizza. Accordingly pizza deck ovens have shorter decks optimized for space and cost savings when only baking pizza.
