Where Can I Use This Oven?

This oven is bulky, so it’s important that you have adequate space for it. This model is ideal for large commercial kitchens that need an oven with high outputs. It is designed to rest on a countertop.

As noted in the instruction manual, you will need to hire a qualified electrician to install this model.

What Makes This Oven Special?

  • The oven’s size makes this model unique because it can cook so many pizzas at once. Each deck of the oven can handle up to 11 pizzas, depending on the size of each.
  • The insulated glass doors ensure that the heat is trapped in the oven. This added insulation will help each pizza cook evenly.
  • While it is quite large, the double-decker design saves space since the ovens are stacked on top of each other.

Why Should I Buy This Oven?

In order to be successful, a kitchen and its team need to have strong equipment to work alongside the chefs. The North Pro FPD 152 Commercial Electric Twin Deck Pizza Oven is a chef’s best friend because of its capacity and ergonomic design.

The preheating switch works wonders in a fast-paced restaurant. When you start your day, simply flip the switch before orders start swarming in. This allows you to get pizzas in and out with minimal downtime in between.

With the digital thermometer and thermostatic sensor, you can easily monitor the temperature inside the oven to avoid overcooking. This feature minimises disaster in the kitchen and creates consistently perfect pizzas.

The oven is operated using a basic on/off switch and stand-by switch. Minimising the number of complicated controls is another thing North Pro Gas does well. This way, you can focus on making pizzas without worrying about a complicated manual of settings that you’ll never use anyway.

While the price-point is high compared to other models, this pizza oven does more than most. Considering the size and performance, this oven is an investment because of how much you can expect to get out of it. The fast cooking times and perfectly cooked pizzas will excite your customers and encourage them to spread the word about your restaurant. In a way, this oven will pay for itself.

When it comes to cleaning at the end of the night, it’s easy to do so because of the stainless steel body. Not only is stainless steel a hygienic material, but also it holds up well over time.
