The Baker’s Oven
It’s “make or break” time when your cooking creations reach the oven, so this is arguably the most important home cooking appliance in the baker’s kitchen. You’ll need accurate and consistent temperatures, even heating and enough space for your biggest baking creations to rise. New technology in residential ovens such as steam cooking and moisture control can also be beneficial to the baker, but it isn’t everyone’s choice. “Our bakers at Baked by Blonde Butler prefer an electric oven for baking, as it’s easier to control than a gas oven,” says Alex Cadger. Another consideration: while a freestanding oven might be appealing, a wall oven at eye height will be easier to keep an eye on.
