Deck Oven height? 5", 7" 8" 12" For home use AB-1616
With the new AB-1616 law passed in CA. I will finally be making the tiny hop into baking commercial bread. Already have my first customer lined up, and we are designing breads she will be buy (I'm having too much fun doing that...)
I'm looking at small deck ovens to use at home, I would like gas with steam but seems small deck ovens are more on the Electric side of things. I've read a bunch of the forums and many of my questions have been answered, but what is still baffling me is the HEIGHT of the ovens, I see ranges from 5", 7", 8" and 12" I know my final loaves are between 4 - 4.5 inches tall.
What are people using in full bakeries?
I understand that 5" is more than enough for a pizza, but babka bread can be 10" tall. My starting menu, is going to be a few designer artisan breads, 11"x6"x4.5" along with bagels. I would like to buy knowing I have room to grow. Any help or suggestions?
