Our Range of Solid, Dependable Commercial Gas Cooking Ovens

Your oven really is the heat in the heart of your kitchen if you roast, steam or bake. Imagine the pickle you'd be in if your main oven let you down early on Saturday evening as your customers started arriving. You might have to rely on your flat top griller or deep fryer. If you are considering replacing your main kitchen oven, it therefore makes sense to purchase enduring quality even if it costs a little more.
Which Oven Type is Likely to Suit You Best?
Your primary choice is between gas or electric energy. Many chefs are turning to Natural / LPG gas following Australia’s recent electric grid outages. Moreover, natural gas has a lighter carbon footprint, but that is not all. Gas is the cheaper alternative, and many chefs believe the product is softer and moister too. Finally, your kitchen will stay a little cooler. From there, it is a matter of how much you are willing to spend.
However, we should mention that traditional gas cooking ranges lack the high-speed finesse of computer-controlled combi ovens such as the UNOX range we have introduced to our range of commercial ovens. These may suit you better if you have an agile à la carte menu and cook on the fly. If not, then arguably the simplicity of one of our robust gas convection ovens could suit you best.
This is the reason why these solid descendants of wood and coal-burning stoves have their place in all grand hotel kitchens, and feature everywhere there is mass-preparation of standard meals. Schools, aged care facilities and work canteens swear by them because they are simple to clean and easier to operate. With that as foretaste, let us talk next about size and overall design of commercial ovens.
Size and Overall Design Considerations
There never seems to be enough space in any kitchen. The simplest designs soon clutter with countertop equipment. Hence, space-saver ovens that are narrower, but deeper make considerable sense in smaller kitchens. We also need to consider the vertical dimension. If gas stoves do not have cooking tops, then we can put them on stands that create handy storage space below.
The choice of commercial gas ovens also depends largely on how much oven space you need, and in which configuration. Do you want deep, wide space with burners on top? Or would you prefer two ovens side-by-side for greater flexibility. Take a longer view. What will your menu look like in terms of variety in two years’ time? How many covers will you be serving then?
With an wide range of quality commercial ovens to choose from such as Luus, Moffat, Blue Seal, Trueheat, Mareno, Unox, Garland, Thor and more. Your choices are endless, the end result make sure you choose the right oven, a quality oven to suit your cooking style and layout. Ultimately the investment is well worth the cost in this ever changing landscape in the food service industry.
Finally, although chefs do come and go, it generally makes sense to have your current one accompany you to our show room and help you decide or alternatively we come to you. Chefs work with ovens on a deeper, more personal level than restaurant owners and managers. Being creative people, they produce their best work when they are content with their environment.

You Are Not Alone When You Purchase a Gas Oven from Us
Baking is one of humankind’s most ancient culinary arts. The oldest extant clay oven was 6,500 years old when discovered in Croatia, and could probably still do the job if archaeologists allowed it. The Romans took the art to Europe from where it spread worldwide. However, it only became an industry when automated machinery arrived. We are proud to present this fine series of classic gas convection ovens, and hope to provide you with a friend that could last for decades, with care.
Gas ovens may be the most expensive freestanding equipment in the kitchen. Our consultants are available to advise and help you make the right choice to optimise your purchase. They can also provide valuable input regarding financing options, and suggest adaptions to your menu you will now be able to make. You can be rest assured our support will always be there, in terms of training and after sales service for as long as you need it!
