Do commercial electric convection ovens need to be under a hood system?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

We are opening a lite fare teashop in a smalltown in MD and will bake of course (scones & cakes....) The spec sheet on a model of oven we are looking at does not say if it needs to be under a hood system or not. Does anyone know?

Check with your local fire department.

Like Pete says, check with your local fire dept. and municipal office. 

 

I know in Pete's area (California) you can not. 

 

I know in my area (Vancouver, B.C.) you can

A slight clarification to FoodPump's post; in my area, it depends on WHAT you are cooking as well as HOW you are cooking it.

 

There are a few convection ovens with catalytic converters that may be used for bakery goods without a vent.

 

It really depends on your local officials.

A further consideration for you...

 

If you don't have it under a hood and you happen to burn a batch badly - where is all that smoke going to go?

 

Into the guests seating area?  Out the front door?  Make up air system? or Re-Circulator?   No where?  

Smoke alarms are mandatory so will they go off?

 

Sometimes going the less expensive route can have un-intended repercussions.
