Industrial cooking conveyors, otherwise known as conveyor ovens or pizza conveyors, are uniquely designed to pass food through a moving chamber in order to ensure the most consistent cooking possible and to keep your production line moving along with zero hiccups. Commercial conveyor ovens are some of the most essential pieces of commercial pizzeria equipment, but they can also be used for toasting sandwiches, melting cheese or cooking a high volume of similar dishes.
So, how do you know which pizza oven conveyor is best for your needs? First, let’s consider size. A typical conveyor oven for large-volume pizzerias or sandwich shops is free-standing and sometimes features wheels so that you can easily move it around the kitchen. These units may feature multiple stacked conveyors (for example, take a look at some of our triple-deck conveyor pizza ovens) for high-volume environments. For smaller spaces and businesses that don’t focus solely on pizza or conveyor cooking, a countertop conveyor oven might be enough.
Different Types of Conveyor Cooking Equipment
Like most commercial cooking equipment, there are conveyor pizza ovens in gas and electric options. You might prefer an electric conveyor pizza oven if you’re looking for something with lower long-term operating costs, or choose a gas style if you want fast heat-up and more temperature control. These units are often segmented by their heating mechanism, which might be forced air, radiant or infrared.
