Baking benefits

Auto-Bake’s multi-level Serpentine oven bakes gently and evenly. Accurate zone temperatures guarantee that a perfect bake is achieved. While customised recipe development in collaboration with Auto-Bake's own master bakers and repeatable process control ensures maximum ROI.

Even bake

Products have uniform colouring and rising across the pan, courtesy of Auto-Bake’s compact design, full-width heating and temperature-controlled heating zones.

Fast product changeover

Product changeovers are facilitated by the Serpentine oven’s easy to remove ‘clipless’ pans, or use of optional ‘free’ pan ovens.
