Rack Ovens FAQ

What can I bake in a rack oven?

You can bake almost anything in a rack oven other than sourdough or artisan bread. Rack ovens are convection ovens with a rotating rack to create an even bake across all baking trays, ideal for quick and consistent baking. A rack oven makes a super-efficient production process when paired with a roll-in rack proofer. Great for sandwich bread, cookies, pastries, buns, pies, cakes, shortbread, granola, bars, & more.

Can I bake pies, panettone or custards in a rack oven?

Yes, baking pies, panettone, or custards in a rack oven is possible! However, baking panettone requires lots of height between trays, so it may be necessary to remove some trays to make room for them or to buy specialized racks.

Can I bake artisan or sourdough bread in a rack oven?

While it is possible to bake artisan bread in a rack oven you won't achieve the infamous crumb or even spring typical of artisan breads. To achieve a more authentic artisan bake, it is suggested to use deck oven.

Do I need to use a proofer or a retarder proofer with a rack oven?

If you are baking buns, bread, rolls, croissants, or anything that works well with a fast proof process, absolutely, it is suggested to pair a roll-in rack proofer with a rack oven to fully utilize the production capacity of the oven while minimizing floor space needed for “long” or traditional room temperature proofing. A good rule of thumb is that your proofer should hold 2x the number of racks you can bake at once.

As we mentioned before, rack ovens are great to pair with a roll-in proofer. Look at the picture on the right, you will see how easily you can roll out from proofer and roll in the oven.

Do I need a concrete floor for a rack oven?

Yes, you need a concrete floor to install a rack oven in your bakery. Racks ovens don’t have insulation on the bottom steel panel; they radiant significant heat into the floor. If you are looking for a rotating tray oven that can sit on a wood-beam floor, be sure to check out the Rotorbake oven we offer.

Do I need new racks when I buy a new rack oven?

Our Bassanina Double Rack Oven can come with a turntable that works with almost all rack types. So if you've got a bunch of baking racks but need an oven upgrade, definitely check it out. On the other hand, most oven brands only work with racks designed for that oven, either because of a unique lifting system or unique size constraints

Does a rack oven have steam?

All rack ovens typically have the option for steam to be injected during the baking cycle to keep products hydrated and soft. In order to use steam, you will need to have a plumber hook up water and a drain to collect the steam condensate. This is the case for all of our Bassanina Rack Ovens we carry as well. However, some bakers don’t need any steam (ex: baking cookies), so often they choose to have the oven installed without hooking up water and steam to save on install costs.

Can I place a rack oven right up against another piece of equipment in my bakery?

Yes, while we can’t speak for all rack ovens, most of our Bassanina rack ovens are designed to be able to sit side by side and right up against a wall. This minimizes the amount of space these ovens take, giving you more flexibility in your production space.

High-quality insulation in the ovens ensures you can even place a roll-in rack retarder proofer directly beside the oven.
