How to buy an oven

Whether the oven is good or not depends on whether the structure of the oven is reasonable. The structure of the oven includes the height of the box, the piping, the volume, and the shelf. These four factors are the key to determining whether the oven is good or not. A reasonable oven structure can make the oven temperature more uniform and practical. The following is divided into two parts, the first part is the product structure part, and the second part is the product function part.
Part 1: Product Structure
The key to the oven is temperature, and the temperature is divided into uniform and accurate temperature. The degree of uniformity of temperature is closely related to the structure of the oven; the accuracy of temperature is related to the thermostat, and the degree of temperature accuracy can be adjusted by the thermostat, but if the temperature is not uniform, it will be Adjustment is not possible. Therefore, the oven structure is more important when purchasing.
1. Box height
From the perspective of market acceptance, ovens with higher product heights are more likely to be favored by baking enthusiasts. This is indeed the case. Ovens with square liner sell better than flat ovens, because ovens with higher cabinet heights , the temperature uniformity in the box is better than that of a flat electric oven, and the square oven is easy to bake large-volume food, such as toast. Under normal circumstances, the temperature of the flat electric oven will be higher than that of the square electric oven. Therefore, when consumers choose, it is best to choose a square oven with a box height of 300mm or more.
2. Pipe layout
At present, household ovens on the market include straight tubes, U-shaped tubes, M-shaped tubes, and double U-shaped tubes. There are four tubes, six tubes, and eight tubes in the cloth tube. In fact, the layout of the pipes in the oven box is closely related to the uniformity of the oven temperature. Generally speaking, the larger the distance between the two heating pipes, the greater the temperature difference between the front and the rear of the box, so when purchasing, It is best to choose an electric oven with a distance of 80-120mm between the two heating pipes. Too dense or too sparse will cause the horizontal temperature deviation of the box. At the same time, try to choose straight pipes when purchasing, because the temperature of the U-shaped or M-shaped pipes will be high at the connection, resulting in uneven temperature in the box. At the same time, if you can choose 6 tubes when purchasing, try to choose an oven with 6 tubes, because the temperature inside the oven with 6 tubes is more uniform.
3. Volume
For baking enthusiasts, try to choose an oven with a capacity of more than 25L. The larger the oven capacity, the lower the temperature in the box and the uniform temperature, and the higher the quality of the baked food. On the contrary, for ovens below 25L, the temperature in the box will be too high, which is not conducive to the coloring of the food surface. Generally speaking, a 25-36L oven is enough for beginners. For experts, try to choose a larger oven, such as 42L or 62L. A large oven can do more things at one time, and the larger the oven volume, the more uniform the relative temperature. The resulting food tastes better. Also, remember to ask for information on the actual capacity and size of the oven when purchasing, so as to prevent businesses from falsely reporting the capacity and make consumption clear.
4. Shelf
At present, there are 3-layer, 4-layer and 5-layer ovens on the market. People who often bake will know that if the heat needs to be slightly lower, such as 180 degrees on the upper and 200 degrees lower, then you only need to turn the baking pan to It is enough to lower it by one grid, and if you need to lower the fire slightly, you only need to add another baking tray under the food to insulate the temperature. Therefore, when choosing an oven shelf, try to choose an oven with more than 4 layers, and if you can choose 5 layers, try to choose an oven with 5 layers.
Part II: Product Features
For consumers, of course, the more oven functions, the better, but it also depends on the budget. If the budget is not enough, then some functions have to be given up. Let's learn about these functions. After understanding these functions, we can decide according to the needs. Whether to configure.
1. Fan
Using the fan to barbecue, the effect is very good, not only saves 20% of energy, but also tastes better. However, the fan has a limited effect on baking pastries. There is an air outlet and one or two inlets inside the oven. The hot air circulates repeatedly between the inlet and the outlet. It will be low, so the temperature between the surrounding and the air outlet will be uneven, and it will affect the coloring when used for baking. Therefore, when choosing a fan, choose an oven that the fan can control independently.
2. Grill fork
The roasting fork is still very useful for roasting the whole poultry food. The roasting fork can be rotated 360 degrees to make the food heat more evenly. The roasting fork is still necessary when choosing.
3. Temperature
The oven temperature on the market is 0-250 degrees, and there are also 100-250 degrees. The starting angle of the oven is about 90 degrees. You can choose any temperature mode. For beginners, it is best to choose an oven with low-temperature baking or slow-fire baking when purchasing. Low-temperature baking can improve the success rate of chiffon cakes, and it is also conducive to the coloring of baked goods, helping beginners to master baking faster.
4. Lighting
The lighting can more clearly observe the baking or baking of the food in the box. If the budget allows, try to buy an oven with lighting when choosing.
5. Fermentation
The fermentation function can not only ferment dough and defrost food, but also make yogurt and bake bacon, which is a very practical function. Since yeast is most suitable for fermentation at 30 degrees, 40 degrees is considered to be accelerated fermentation, and the quality of the finished product will not be very good, and when it reaches 45 degrees, the yeast will lose its activity. The fermentation temperature of the oven is between 40-60 degrees, and the temperature usually exceeds 45 degrees. When purchasing the fermentation function, it is best to choose a large-capacity oven, because the larger the oven, the lower the temperature, and it is best to choose a large-capacity oven when using it. Possibly add more water to the pan to lower the oven temperature.
6. Inner liner
At present, there are aluminum-plated sheets and galvanized sheets for the inner tank on the market. Compared with galvanized sheet, aluminized sheet has stronger oxidation resistance, and its service life is extended by 60%.
7. Cleaning
After baking, dishes or food will inevitably leave a smell in the oven. Over time, various flavors will mix together, resulting in unbearable odors. When purchasing, it is best to choose a slag tray or a liner with a Oily oven. The non-stick oil will effectively separate and decompose the adhesion of the oil, making the oven clean and reducing odor, eliminating the trouble of constantly removing the residual oil in the oven.
8. Computer type and mechanical type
Because the computer-type oven controls the temperature in the box through the chip, the temperature in the box is more accurate than that of the mechanical electric oven, but due to the complicated procedure, the electronic components are prone to short-circuit under the action of oil and other external forces. In terms of service life, mechanical ovens are better than computer-based ovens, and you can choose them according to your needs when purchasing.
The structure of the oven must be considered when purchasing. In addition to the product structure, the cost performance of the product must be considered when adding functions.
