oven recommendations for small/semi-professional bread oven
Hi friends --
I work for a local cafe that just gave me the go-ahead to start developing our bread baking into a more serious part of the business, so I'm starting to explore the best way to take my experience from my little kitchen and transfer it to a larger production in the most efficient/practical way I can.
They don't want to do a full bakery build-out for obvious reasons, so I think my best options are to find a local business with a bread oven, or find a great/affordable bread oven with a small footprint that we can integrate into current kitchen space.
So! On that second point, I'd love some recommendations on a great oven that meets those needs -- affordable, small footprint, good for artisan bread, etc. I've seen some people talk about ovens that don't need a water line and just have water poured into them -- has anyone found or tried an oven like this?
Hopefully if I can get a little production going in a successful way it can mean a bigger and better-equipped bakery in the future.
Love your input -- thanks!
