Combination Ovens

Combi Oven The typical boiler-based combi oven uses up to 40 gallons of water per hour!

This water is being used regardless of whether the oven is cooking, and much of it goes straight down the drain. Not only are you paying for extra water, but for the sewer charges as well.

A boilerless combination oven will deliver the same product quality while using much less water. Specifying boilerless combination ovens can cut water usage to as low as 20 gallons of water per hour or less. And, ovens that use less water typically use less energy as well!

The FSTC recommends specifying ovens that meet the LEED prescriptive water usage level of less than 3.5 gallons of water used per pan each hour. LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification developed by the U.S Green Building Council (USGBC).

Operating Tips for Combination Ovens:

check Programming - Use the oven’s programming capabilities to properly control different cooking modes to maximize energy efficiency and cost savings.

check Combi Mode - Use combi mode sparingly and only when necessary.

check Cut Idle Time - Energy wasted can add up quickly when an oven is operating in idle mode. Turn the oven down or off during slow times. By cutting out two hours of idle time per day it can save $400 to $800 annually.

check Doors Closed - Keep the doors closed all the way.

check Full Loads - Cooking with a fully loaded oven is more efficient than cooking with and oven that is half full.

check Maintenance - Make sure and replace gaskets when needed and keep door hinges tight to make sure doors stay aligned.
