Specialist catering equipment supplier, Euro Catering, has introduced heavy-duty Debag bakery deck and electric convection ovens to the UK to bring bakers the advantages of professional but easy-to-use ovens already adopted for use in Aldi and Lidl’s in-house bakeries across Europe.

The company says its exclusive supply agreement is great news for bakers working in retail and convenience store environments and these outlets are being urged to upgrade.

Debag is described as a top German brand with 100 years’ experience in delivering bakery equipment. Debag ovens are designed to maximise the use of the baking surface, deliver the best possible use of energy, create perfect internal chamber baking conditions and minimise issues such as operator error, inconsistency across multi-site operations and oven downtime.

“This is a brand used by both Aldi and Lidl’s bakery divisions across Europe and placed front of house, because of the stylish design credentials that accompany the technical prowess of each oven,” says Euro Catering’s sales director, Justin Towns. “Retail store bakers wishing to bake breads in the traditional way, by conducted heat on a stone slab, or create a variety of baked goods in a convection rack oven, will find cutting-edge solutions within the new Debag range.”

Euro Catering has three heavy-duty Debag ovens available: the Debag Helios 4060 electric bakery deck oven; the Debag Dila 5 5 rack electric convection oven and the Debag Dila 10+5 stacked electric convection ovens.  Together these address all needs within the bake-off and artisan bakery sectors.

All Debag ovens are stackable and the end-user can choose to combine a bakery deck oven with an electric convection oven, to offer a wider menu than solely bake-off or artisan-baked items.

The ovens’ energy-efficiency credentials are impressive in comparison with other brands’ ovens and the optional wash system minimises water use and utilises a bio-degradable cleaning agent lasting for up to 40 washes. Manual or programmable controls are available, according to how hi-tech the baker wishes to be.

Justin Towns says: “Introducing the Debag range to the UK is an exciting development for us and having access to the range should be an enticing proposition for store bakers in retail environments.”
