The Bongard Soleo oven offers the ultimate in adaptability and convertibility for artisan bakers. This model provides the same outstanding quality of bakery ovens as the Bongard Cervap does in gas deck ovens, with the flexibility of modular construction. That means these ovens can be constructed via modules or prefabricated units and that, in the bakery oven industry, makes them “modulable.”
This electric-powered Soleo oven is more compact than the Cervap. The Bongard Soleo can be customized to a specific area where space is at a premium. It is adaptable for all configurations. There are four model sizes from which to choose, with a choice of from one to four decks. Make that up to five. Future decks can be added to the oven easily. Deck heights can be seven to 9.5 inches to accommodate the breads and other bakery goods going into the oven. Each deck comes with two thermostats, one for the top of the deck and one for the hearth deck.
We will provide steam generators for each deck individually as needed for your business demands, and the modular concept allows you to optimize for the future as your business grows and changes. This oven sits on an oven stand with legs on wheels, providing extra maneuverability.
The greatest attribute of the Bongard Soleo is that each deck can be operated independently from each other. This enables the baker to bake different products at different temperatures and amounts of time. This also allows for great energy savings, with the minimum amount of baking space being used at a given time.
The full-view glass door, though tempered to retain heat, benefits both the baker and customer looking in. The moisture is managed by a motorized steam damper as the steam generator provides plentiful steam.
Electronic oven controls known as Opticom are not only efficient in terms of saving time, but the system is also a proven energy-saver. Residual temperatures built up from baking throughout the day can be a major factor in both gas- and electric-powered deck ovens. Opticom is able to read these loitering temperatures and adjust automatically, as well as accounting for these residual temperatures in pre-heating. Opticom also includes an independent start-up timer for each deck.
Bakers may love to bake and created hundreds of individual baking good in a few short hours, but at the end of the workday, the equipment has to be cleaned. The manufacturer assures easy cleaning and accessible maintenance, including interior smooth walls in the baking chamber. Outwardly swing glass door allow everything inside to be reachable for daily cleaning and they can be easily removed for more infrequent cleaning.
