Crusty breads should typically bake at 425-450° F, and pizza dough is best baked at an even higher temperature. One reason for using such high heat is so the bread bakes quickly, resulting in a soft crumb and crusty exterior. Another benefit for using an extremely hot oven is so the initial rise (called “oven spring”) is successful in developing a beautiful, full shape from your dough. The 1-1/4” thick stone shelves in the Rofco ovens can hold extremely high heat and then quickly transfer that heat into your baked goods.
We carry three Rofco stone oven models at Pleasant Hill Grain, the B5, B20, and B40. The capacity and weight of each is listed below:
Rofco B5 Stone Oven: The most compact Rofco stone oven, the B5 has one stone shelf. It has a 4.4 pound dough capacity, 6.3’’ tall baking space, and weighs 49 pounds. The B5 Oven includes one baking tray, one baking sheet, a wooden paddle, and a manual.
Rofco B20 Stone Oven: The B20 has three stone shelves. It has a 13.2 pound dough capacity, and weighs 123 pounds. Each baking space in this model is 6.3” tall, and it includes three baking trays, three baking sheets, a wooden paddle, and a manual.
Rofco B40 Stone Oven: Rofco’s largest oven weighs 187 pounds, has three stone shelves, and has a 26.4 pound dough capacity. The B40 oven baking spaces are taller at 8.6” and it includes three baking trays, three baking sheets, a wooden paddle, and a manual.
Rofco Oven Steam Trays allow you to use steam in your baking process for crispy crusts and a beautiful shine. Simply pour water into the steam tray and place it in the oven. Within 30 seconds, copious amounts of steam are generated.
If you're cooking something oily, sugary, or just messy in general, the Rofco Oven Tray is perfect for you. These trays protect the stone shelves of the oven without affecting the benefits of stone baking.
The Rofco Baking Sheet has the same effect as baking paper, but with a more rigid design. You can prepare food on the baking sheet and then slide it directly into the oven.
