Range-stoves come in 4 basic categories; household-domestic ranges, medium duty restaurant ranges, heavy duty hotel ranges and gourmet ranges. Comstock-Castle has been building and marketing stoves longer than anyone in America. Todays Castle range-stoves are probably the restaurant industries best value in the “medium duty category. Key features include more oven size choices and more cook-top choices. Castle restaurant range ovens come in 3 sizes; 31½, 26½ and 19½. The benefit to having these oven choices is the quality of the cooked food. The 31½ wide oven allows superior air movement around standard pans like you would find with a convection oven but without the fan and the extra cost and maintenance. This large oven will produce quality results on 2 or 3 racks
The 19½ wide oven saves valuable space when used alone on a 24 range and, when used with a second oven rack, produces the same food volume as the industry standard “full size oven but with better quality cooked foods. The industry standard so-called full size oven barely accommodates a standard 26 full size pan. Most manufactures have designed their ovens to be able to utilize the same stove parts in the 2 most common range sizes; 36 stoves and 60 stoves. While this saves the manufacture lots of money by way of volume production of parts like oven bottoms, oven backs, oven doors, oven handles, etc., it does little for the quality of the finished food quality. This is one of the key reasons a convection oven was developed, to move air around pans for better cooked food. When it comes to 60 ranges Castle will build it as you like, with a large and small oven or 2, 26½ ovens. The choice is yours, we recommend the large and small combination but understand the desire of many to not have to use half size pans. Some brands tout a 26 deep oven, one that take a full size pan depth wise. When full size pans are used like this, tests show that air movement is blocked by the pan itself in the front and back of the oven. When used widthwise, there is, at least a bit of space on the sides for air to move.
Castle ranges also have the best insulation, independently confirmed through ANZI tests. Our clearance ratings are the industries best. This feature saves fuel day in and day out especially if used near or next to any refrigeration that can put stress on compressors.
