Here are some of the more general questions our customers may ask us before purchasing an industrial oven.
Detailed information on each of our commercial convection ovens are provided inside each product sheets, giving you full support before and after your purchase.
A commercial convection oven, commonly also known as commercial fan oven, is equipped with fans to make the internal temperature homogeneous. Chefook's commercial ovens are all convection ovens.
Steamless convection ovens cook food by dehydrating the outside and keeping the core soft; they are particularly recommended for cooking roasts that must have a thin crunchy crust and a soft chewing core.
The commercial steamless oven is also perfect for:
Chefook's convection ovens include our CHF-EKO range of commercial manual ovens, which combine convenience with maximum reliability and ease of use.
Convection cooking (ventilated) tends to over-dry food; for this reason, steam has also been introduced during cooking.
Its use consists of adding a percentage of steam to the oven chamber and is essential for long cooking times or simply to compensate dehydration of dishes during cooking or regeneration.
A commercial steam oven is particularly suitable for cooking:
CHF-EVO digital steam ovens are designed for the most demanding catering professionals.
With direct steam, water is fed directly into the fan and then nebulised in the cooking chamber as steam. Direct steam cooking ensures greater cooking uniformity and is recommended for cooking steamed products such as boiled vegetables and boiled fish.
Our online shop offers you a wide range of commercial direct steam ovens; among the best-selling are the professional steam ovens CHF EVO.
With indirect humidification, on the other hand, water is introduced into the chamber via a water spray controlled by a button placed on the control panel; this creates humidity for a short period of time, so the product will not to dry out. Indirect humidification is recommended for cooking lasagne, roasts, cakes and for gastronomy and pastry dishes in general.
The commercial manual oven is usually suitable for simple cooking: an oven with the classic knobs is intuitive, easy and quick to use and you can get the desired results even without the use of specific programs.
The commercial digital oven is ideal for more advanced uses and offers the advantage of being able to program, customize and save recipes.
The touch control panel digital ovens are the top of the range and offer specific functions for delicate and perfect cooking.
The commercial gas oven offers the advantage of being more energy saving than the electric one.
However, commercial use requires:
Microwave technology guarantees thawing, heating or cooking speed, keeping both food taste and the properties intact. In fact, the speed of cooking does not affect the dispersion of salts, proteins and vitamins contained in food.
A trivalent oven is an oven where heat, steam and ventilation are present. Chefook's commercial direct steam ovens are all trivalent.
The core probe is a device used during cooking to check the food’s internal temperature. When the ideal cooking temperature is reached, the core probe automatically switches the oven off.
The "DELTA T" function of our commercial digital ovens CHF EVO, allows you to cook with a core probe, keeping the difference between the core temperature and the temperature set for the chamber constant.
The core probe is included when purchasing a CHFEVO commercial oven.
All commercial ovens need high power to ensure high performance: it will not be necessary to wait for the oven to heat up and it will be possible to quickly reach the desired temperature during the various cooking phases.
The proofer is used to speed up the proofing process of bread, dough, bakery and pastry products in general and to keep the products warm. (temperature range 30-60°C -86°F/140°F).
