This thread is timely for me, and I appreciate the discussion so far! I have been using a 5-rack professional convection oven (in a commercial kitchen), which has worked wonderful for my pies and pastry. I would really love to duplicate the even golden brown crust at home. My home oven does not have a convection feature but I know I can invest in the countertop Breville Smart Oven that Rose featured on her blog as a supplement to my gas range/oven.
However, the Breville is very small (only 12"x 12”) and not large enough for a standard half sheet pan. My husband also really wants to me look into getting a full-size replacement for our current range & oven that has convection. The only convection ovens I have used in people’s homes were pretty wimpy (nothing compared to the commercial 5-rack wind tunnel).
Does anyone have any recommendations for full size ovens with convection intended for use in a home kitchen?
Your thoughts & advice much appreciated!
