Best steam deck oven to make 100-300 loaves a day?
(That’s a pic of my Fig Anise boule.)
I am sure this has been covered many times but i can’t seem to find search terms to bring it up.
I am trying to figure out best options and value for buying a used steaming deck oven for an artisanal bread operation that could crank out 100-300 loaves a day. I would be baking 750 to 1000 gram boules and batards, and standard baguettes.
It doesn’t have to be pretty. i would be installing it in simple baking operation to service commercial accounts with restaurants and cafes . . . no retail for now.
I want to try to bootstrap a bare-bones operation with only refrigeration, an oven, work surfaces and racks for proofing in baskets at room temps.
My commercial baking experience is limited. I am a long time home baker with a recent stint at a startup cafe making just 15-20 loaves per day. (yes there was a lot of standing around waiting for turn and proofing)
Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks.
