Large Scale ovens

 Are computer controlled, so temperature and cooking time can be pre-programmed. ovens can be used to cook and dry products for preservation. there are four main types of oven:

  • Tunnel ovens: carry foods such as biscuits through the oven on a conveyor belt.
  • Deck oven: is used for batches of products like bread. often steam is used as well as dry heat to add moisture to the product.
  • Convection ovens surround the product with heat
  • Travel ovens are like tunnel ovens, but work on a larger scale.
