Steam trays are the ideal way to introduce steam in your baking process. Much more than just empty vessels, Rofco steam trays contain heavy stainless rods that store a great deal of heat energy for rapid and complete steam release—order one for each space (shelf) where you want to use steam. Steam potential is a function of the mass of the rod-filled trays, and the heavy 10.5 pound weight of each of these trays attests to their heat-capturing and steam-producing ability!

  • “Above all, we’re very pleased with your courteous and honest service to us. I’m such a critic that when I praise something, it merits high praise indeed. I wouldn't bother to write this if I was not so favorably impressed.”

Use & Care

Place the steam trays in the oven before pre-heating. We recommend placing trays in the middle of the stones to absorb maximum heat. When the oven has reached the desired temperature, move each tray to the side of the stone. Wear kitchen mitts to do this, as the steam trays will be extremely hot! Then place dough in the oven. Pour about 60ml (2 ounces) of water into each steam tray. Using a half-full 120ml bottle will help prevent spillage. Close the door (without slamming) as soon as possible once you've poured the water into the steam trays. Hold the door for a few seconds by the door handle. If not, the door could open due to the pressure of the steam.

  • Works excellent not only for the Rofco!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We have a small 3 deck commercial oven with vents (not Rofco) but the steam option was not installed on it by the previous owner. We researched installing steam injectors (that oven actually takes them and even has a place for the bottom) but they were very pricey. This solution will fit any oven with an enclosed baking chamber (non-convection) and vent control, so it's a very affordable solution to steam our decks and we can use it only when needed. They sit on top of the oven when not in use.

    We got three, one for each deck and they arrived safely and fast to our US address by the border (Our bakery is near Vancouver, BC). The product seems very sturdy and hand crafted with care, you can see it in the quality of materials and welding points. It's pretty heavy, I think there are at least 3 heavy rods inside that take up heat and that's why it's better than just a tray with water. Since we're using it in a bigger deck than the Rofco we aren't too worried about the real estate it takes up in the oven but they are pretty slim and not in the way.

    Great Job! Thanks a lot!

    Update: Three months later, still work great even with added baking volumes. Just make sure you get them real hot. The one issue we are experiencing is that we use an infra-red gun style thermometer to gauge the heat of the stone, but the infra-gun can't get a good read off the trays as they are made of stainless steel and the reflection throws the reader off. It would be nice if the front and back for this.

  • Sufficient thermal mass to accomplish the task
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Unfortunately I do not have a deck or stone oven, so I purchased this to be used in my simple home oven. Most of the homemade steam solutions people come up with simply fall flat because they simply don't have enough thermal mass to provide the large amount of energy required to convert water to steam. Of course this doesn't fix the problem that home ovens are well vented and are otherwise not ideal for baking bread, but I liked the results with this vs one cooked in a dutch oven at the same time.

  • Perfect bread
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Having tested one of these trays, I found that it was very effective in opening up loaves beautifully. Ordered 2 more, so i had one for each shelf.

  • Well built, but pricey
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The unit is well built and very heavy for it’s size. But for the size, it does produce a lot of steam.

  • Creates excellent steam
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This was recommended by a master baker/pastry chef along with the Rofco oven. Works great, no complaints and I did not find it necessary to add additional steam with stray bottles, etc.

  • Sleek design!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This steam tray is well-designed and doesn't take much space away in the oven. And it won't rust!
