Here are six considerations foodservice operators should weigh when purchasing a combi oven.
Depending on a variety of factors, combi ovens typically have a service life of approximately eight to 15 years. When purchasing a new unit, there are a number of factors to consider. Here are just a few:
Look at the operation's volume before deciding on oven size and type. Smaller facilities need to factor in catering needs, if applicable.
Combi ovens require space under the kitchen's exhaust hood, so it is important to make sure enough room exists before purchasing it. If space is limited, consider a countertop unit or stackable model. Also, because the unit can combine the features and functionality of other pieces of equipment, those items may prove to be redundant, thus freeing some space beneath the hood.
