Good Oven for 1000 Daily Loaves

June 20, 2012 - 7:51pm -- CleveBake

I am a part of an operation hoping to start up a bakery in Cleveland. Having done our preliminary research on equipment, the area, etc. we have begun choosing what machinery we'll be using. I was wondering if the fine people here would be able to answer a few questions I have about baking equipment:

1) What oven(s) would recommend for a bakery hoping to produce roughly 1000 loaves a day?

2) Would it be better to get one large oven/mixer etc. or multiple smaller ones? 

Please add any other advice you think may be of use.

Help with Hobart mixer

July 28, 2008 - 8:02am -- karmayarn

I just was given a 30 qt Hobart mixer with a dough hook, wisk and paddle.  I am not a professional baker but I do like to bake bread.  I have two questions;  How much is the mixer worth? I would guess it is about 20 years old but it looks like new.  I'm just curious.  My second question, which is more fun, is where can I find bread recipes to make such a large quantity?  I'm getting some friends together to make a jumbo batch of bread dough that we can then divide and freeze.  Any suggestions?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
