Conveyor ovens come in many different sizes, including countertop models and industrial floor-standing versions. Conveyor ovens allow for precise baking of pizzas, buns, and many other types of food. Different heating methods are available for conveyors, either forced air, radiant, or infrared, but, for the most part, conveyor ovens all require the same basic daily cleaning process.
Daily Cleaning Tips
- Ensure the oven is turned off and cooled down before beginning cleaning.
- Remove the conveyor belt and clean it with a wire brush. For a deeper clean to remove baked-on carbon, spray the belt with a non-toxic oven cleaner, let sit for 20 minutes, and scrub with the wire brush.
- Remove the crumb tray and any other removable parts, clean with warm water and a non-toxic degreaser.
- Clear out all crumbs from the inside of the oven, clean with the degreaser and rinse with warm water.
- Check all air intake vents to ensure they are clear of any debris.
- Reassemble anything removed from the oven during cleaning.
- Wipe down the outside of the oven and polish with a stainless-steel cleaner.
In addition to the daily cleaning procedure above, always ensure your oven is at least six inches from the nearest wall to allow for better air circulation, and check the gas lines for any kinks. Following these steps will help keep your conveyor oven running efficiently and keep your operating costs down.
Conveyor ovens can be complex machines with many moving pieces inside of them. If service is needed, it's best to call a local service technician to examine the unit and make any necessary repairs.
