Commercial Ovens

THE PRODUCT:

Commercial ovens are used in commercial kitchens and can be powered by either electricity or gas. Most commercial ovens are convection ovens.

THE STANDARD:

Our recommended standard for commercial ovens is based on ENERGY STAR Version 2.2, which took effect in 2015 and requires that ovens meet a minimum cooking efficiency requirement and a maximum idle (or standby) energy rate. Convection ovens meeting ENERGY STAR Version 2.2 consume about 15% less energy than standard models.

KEY FACTS:

In 2018, 60% of shipments of commercial ovens were ENERGY STAR qualified. States have yet to adopt standards for commercial ovens.
