Baking benefits

Auto-Bake’s Serpentine ovens are unsurpassed for heat and moisture control, and our modular systems integrate end-to-end to guarantee consistency of product with fully programmable pre-set controls that take into account individual recipes, and variations in raw ingredients.

Even bake

Products have uniform coloring and rising across the tray, 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.

Pies to Puddings

Adjustable and flexible in-feed means the line can deposit pies one day and filled puddings the next. Cocktail Pastries to Family Pies: choices are easy to change as inventory dictates.

Customised cooling

Integrated ambient or refrigerated coolers, plus blast-freezer options to suit product and supply requirements.
