The difference between a convection oven with humidity and a combi oven is that the former was created to perform very simple cooking techniques as those explained above taking advantage of the fact that it can handle the addition of steam percentages to speed up the cooking process or to expand the range of products that can be cooked. An example? If we need to bake a fresh croissant that needs precise humidity percentages during the first part of the cooking, surely the first choice falls on a convection oven with humidity. However, these ovens are not designed to handle cooking processes with high humidity percentages such as steam cooking. A professional convection oven with humidity is suitable for bakery and pastry even fresh, however, it may have some limitations while baking certain types of bread or baked goods, which require the use of a combi oven that can saturate the baking chamber with steam in just few seconds.
The combi oven is the maximum expression of a professional oven. It was created to cover all the climatic conditions necessary to complete a cooking process: from steam cooking to grilling. A professional combi oven can cook anything. And it is designed to withstand all conditions. A professional combi oven allows you to choose the percentage of humidity you want to have inside the cooking chamber. Moreover, thanks to some special technologies, UNOX intelligent combi ovens can automatically recognize the amount of food baked, the characteristics and climatic conditions in which to operate by automatically adjusting the settings to ensure the perfect result in every condition.
Commercial ovens can be electric or gas, manual or digital. The manual oven is the one with the classic knobs. It is very intuitive and suitable for simple cooking techniques. The digital oven, on the other hand, is ideal for more advanced uses and offers the advantage of being able to program, customise and save recipes.
