Rating of the best ovens
The best single chamber ovens
Single-chamber frying models are installed on the table or are supplied with their own stand so as not to take up space on the work surface. The volume of the internal compartment of 28-60 liters allows you to prepare meals for visitors to cafes, small canteens or in the family circle.
This is a professional type wardrobe for everyday use. Reviews show that the equipment can withstand operation for 6-8 hours and regularly serves for 7-8 years. There is practically nothing to break here, since the fryer consists of heating elements with a total power of 4.6 kW, a thermostat that limits the heating temperature to 300 degrees, and switches. The user can set the operating time from 5 minutes to an hour, the heating side (top, bottom or both) and adjust the temperature from 20 to 270º C. Inside there are three baking sheets 53×47 cm in size, so at the same time it will be possible to bake potatoes, chicken or other products with a layer with an area 1.5 m². The perforation in the upper part of the body ensures the removal of excessively hot air, so the casing is not deformed. External powder coating lasts for a long time despite high temperatures.
The model is liked by professional chefs in reviews for the convenience of adjusting the legs in height. This allows you to set it at the right level for a specific height of the user, so that the back is less tired in the kitchen after a whole day of work.

But a larger oven with dimensions of 950x830x850 mm, two baking sheets of which have a size of 65×53 cm. Technologically, a third baking sheet is also provided, but it is purchased separately. Such a capacity of one chamber makes the equipment suitable for the kitchens of schools and kindergartens, allowing you to cook even more dishes at the same time. The cabinet works from 380 V and needs to be connected through an automatic machine, therefore it is not equipped with a plug, but only with a network wire. On the other hand, the three-phase power supply allows the fryer to produce a power of 6.3 kW, and the dishes are cooked much faster. On the right side of the control panel there is a temperature regulator with a range of 50-300 degrees, a choice of the number of heating elements and a timer. The cabinet warms up in 25 minutes, and it is protected from overheating by built-in protection with a limiter.

The feature of the frying equipment is the presence of 4 baking sheets and a vertical jumper in the middle of the chamber. Gastroyemkost are located on two from each party.

It is also a practical option for bakeries and bakeries. Here are the best cabinets selected by experts in this category.
This frying kitchen apparatus is similar to the ShZhE-1 model, only it combines three such installations at once. The chambers are located on top of each other and the overall dimensions of the cabinet are 103x92x160 cm. There are 12 levels in the chamber in total for convenient arrangement of pallets. Heating elements with a total power of 14.4 kW, connected to 380 V, heat up in 30 minutes and are able to bake food at temperatures from 20 to 270 degrees. To prevent the door handles from heating up, the manufacturer provided them with plastic adapters that slow down heat transfer. The rotary controls are made of the same material, so you can handle them with your bare hands during operation. The vertical design is located on thick legs with rubber tips, so that the cabinet does not slip on the floor.

Next is a cabinet for 380 V, equipped with three chambers with a volume of 0.42 m³ each. The compartments have two levels with gastronorm containers 65×53 cm. This allows you to place a large amount of food at a time. The manufacturer created a vertical structure with an increased width and provided it with a metal stand, so it does not need an additional base. This design is also more convenient for users, since it does not require crouching or bending over strongly to get the lower container. The stainless steel casing perfectly tolerates contact with steam and even water, resisting corrosion. Each compartment is programmed separately for operating time, temperature and heating sides, but there are no glass windows here, so you have to open the doors and check the dishes directly, and this leads to heat escaping.
The cooking cabinet stands out for its optimal combination of 16.5 kW power, heating temperature and energy consumption. This allows you to fry meat, fish and vegetables in large volumes at elevated temperatures up to 290 degrees, which reduces cooking time.

The body of the frying equipment is made of stainless steel. The tray guides are removable and can be moved depending on the size of the carcass being cooked. Separate control of heating elements helps to create the desired temperature in each compartment. Since the top unit heats up the most, additional perforations are provided on the sides of its case to regulate heat dissipation. Fans operate inside to evenly blow the dish, so it is baked equally in the corners and in the middle. Reviews show that the control panel can withstand accidental impacts from kitchen accessories and is not scratched.
We singled out the cupboard because of the large glass doors that allow you to assess the degree of roasting or baking without opening the sash. The presence of lighting inside the chambers also contributes to this. The glass panels have a double structure, so it is almost impossible to break them.

But this had to be paid for by increased energy consumption of 18 kW / h. To connect such kitchen equipment, a powerful line is required. Each unit has its own group of heating elements and is automatically able to maintain the set temperature. Reliable thermal insulation of the case is liked by the owners in the reviews, as it ensures uniform baking of dough and other products.
We remember the cabinet for the presence of a digital timer with a pleasant sound signal at the end of work. Each camera has it, so it is configured individually. The huge design with a weight of 180 kg also has a stand with durable wheels.

If your kitchen floor is uneven, adjusters in the feet help you securely level your frying equipment so it doesn’t wobble. The cabinet works with a temperature range of 20-270 degrees. All compartments have their own heating regulator, timer and heating element control switch.
This model is praised in reviews for high-quality baking sheets. Gastroyemkost are made of stainless steel and perfectly transfer a frequent sink. The dough sticks to them less.

The device supports step-by-step power adjustment, separate switching on of a group of heating elements. According to reviews, the owners like deep gastro containers 45x65x2 cm, practical for pizza.
