Countertop Convection Oven recommendations

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Dear Friends,

I am starting a small cafe with the help of some friends (60 chairs) and need direction on what kind of oven to purchase.  It will need to be a counter top unit.  We are planning light lunches and dinners, plan to bake quiches, some breads and meats, and warm items for serving, etc.  We would like to spend between $1000 - 2000.  It would be great if it heated to at least 550 degrees and can be either 120 or 240V.

 

I am reading that a 3 element unit is the best, but then have been told it is not necessary.  I understand that the feature of the fan turning off when opened is valuable as we will be opening and closing the unit constantly, but is that the case?  I am way over my head.  

 

Any advice?

 

Thank you.

So this needs to be electric or gas? How many and what size pans would you like it to hold?

Thanks,
