Pizza gas ovens: how to choose the best one for your business
The importance of the pizza oven
There are few foods that are as famous as pizza. It is found in virtually every eatery and some businesses, known as pizzerias, specialize in making a variety of pizzas. The popularity of the dish means that an eatery that makes high quality pizzas will always have many customers. The pizza oven is the most important equipment in a restaurant. One can have the perfect ingredients but it is the oven that makes the pizza either so good that people will come back for more or so bad that it will soon destroy one’s pizza business. In essence, a pizza oven is the cornerstone of any pizza business. Thus, choosing the right oven is one of the most important tasks for any restaurant or eatery.
Choosing pizza gas ovens
The most common pizza ovens are pizza gas ovens, like those made by Frecciainox, but electric pizza ovens are also available on the market. Commercial ovens usually have larger capacity in order to cook several pizzas. This enables the business to sell many pizzas at the same time. The main advantage of pizza gas ovens over electric ovens is on operating costs. Gas is relatively cheaper than electricity, especially in the UK, and the business can make huge savings by investing in a pizza gas oven rather than in an electric one.
What to look for when shopping for a pizza oven
When shopping for a pizza gas oven, one of the most important things to look out for is the baking stone. Traditionally, pizzas were baked on a baking stone that allowed heat distribution and played a major role in giving flavor and crispness to the pizza. Frecciainox’s pizza gas ovens have a honeycombed refractory stone that replicates the traditional way of heat distribution in a modern appliance. Thus, the pizza has the same taste and texture as a traditionally made pizza. The interior of the oven must be made of a material that is easy to clean because the frequent use of the pizza oven means that it will require frequent cleaning. This includes the baking stone which must be easy to remove from the oven for cleaning. Finally, the structure must be made of heat resistant material in order to reduce heat wastage and save on costs.
