What to consider when buying a new commercial oven

← Back to News

Thinking about upgrading your kitchen with a brand new convection oven? There are a few things you need to keep in mind. Here’s how a Turbofan oven helps.

So, you’ve decided to upgrade your kitchen with a brand new convection oven. Great! A new piece of commercial cooking equipment presents a wealth of benefits, from increased functionality to higher quality meals for customers. You may even be able to reduce space by finding a model with a smaller footprint, or increase your output by selecting a unit with an increased tray capacity.

However, finding the perfect commercial oven can still be something of a challenge. There are so many different brands and models out there that’s its difficult to know where to start. And of course, you’ll also want to make sure that whatever you purchase is going to be robust enough to handle heavy use, and easy to operate for all members of kitchen staff.

Let’s take a closer look at the essential considerations to keep in mind when selecting your new oven.

Turbofan’s convection ovens boast baking, roasting and cooking modes.

Oven capacity and size

Size and capacity are opposite sides of the same coin. Most modern kitchens operate in pretty strict space requirements, with limited floor space and lots of different units to accommodate. This can make it tempting to choose a smaller oven, but keep in mind that you’ll still need to be able to match the output of your previous machine.

In some cases, you may want to increase the amount of food you can produce, but without having to drastically cut down on room for staff. One solution here is to choose a pair of trackable ovens from the Turbofan range. By building upwards, you’ll get twice the functionality, but without any loss of bench or floor space.


Ovens are often the centrepiece of a commercial kitchen, as they can be used to perform a variety of different cooking procedures. To this end, you’ll want to select a model that excels at all the different jobs you plan on using it for.

Turbofan’s convection ovens are designed with this multi-functionality in mind, boasting extensive baking, roasting and cooking modes. This is in addition to regeneration ability, which is critical for smaller businesses that may want to prepare meals in advance and reheat before service – without compromising flavour.

Easy to use

Not every member of your kitchen will be an expert chef, and your equipment should cater to all levels of culinary experience – especially if you’re hiring part-time staff over the busy summer months. This need is accommodated by Turbofan’s precise digital controls and One Touch operation. There are all sorts of manual and pre-programmed cooking modes to use, and the electronic knobs facilitate complete control over every aspect of the cooking process.

In addition, you want an oven that doesn’t require too much maintenance, especially on the cleaning side of things. To get the best results time after time, your oven needs to be spotless, but that doesn’t mean you should have to dedicate hours and hours to scrubbing. Instead, invest in an oven with a vitreous enamel interior. This material can be cleaned far more easily than stainless steel and is durable enough to handle even the heaviest use.

If there are any parts of your new oven that you don’t understand, you can always reach out to the team at Moffat IQ. They’ll be able to walk you through any problems you might be having, and best of all, the service is free!
