Is your Oven Suitable for your Needs as a Chef?


Ovens are one of the most fundamental pieces of kitchen equipment out there. A new oven can change the way you cook, and change the experience of the people you cook for. If you feel your oven isn’t meeting your needs, then it may be time to invest in a new one.

When you are thinking about buying a new oven, you should:

  • Think carefully about how you actually use your oven. Do you use features like fan oven and do you do things like cook by weight?
  • Decide on special features. Once you have thought about this, you can find an oven with features you will actually use. A pyrolytic self-cleaning oven could save you a lot of time.
  • Decide whether you want a single oven or a double oven – or perhaps two single ovens. As a cook, chef or caterer, you might need a lot of oven space. Perhaps you would benefit from two single ovens, giving you more cooking space than one double oven.
