Duke Convection Ovens Offer Energy Savings and More Space

Duke Convection Ovens

All models feature 50/50 independent stainless steel doors with large, double pane windows. Duke has increased the height of the cooking chamber by four inches, which improves air flow for more even heating, and allows for greater capacity. These ovens have a stainless steel, porcelain-coated interior, which eliminates rusting in concealed areas. Coved corners, as well as a seamless bottom make cleaning easier. One of the most important features is that Duke convection ovens are completely front serviceable. This allows for quick and easy repairs, reducing service time. All of Duke’s gas convection ovens are Energy Star® rated, averaging 25-35% lower BTU input than competing models. Electric models feature a high efficiency element, which is placed next to the air circulation fan, allowing for heat to be immediately distributed throughout the oven cavity as soon as the element is turned on. This creates a faster response time, as well as improved efficiency.
