I am currently in the planning stage for our small pizza shop and was doing some research on affordable, used pizza ovens and came across a listing on eBay for a Magic Chef gas deck oven. The dimensions are 60"W x 39" D x 58" H.
Unfortunately, nowhere is listed any info on its BTU’s, maximum temperature or the interior deck dimensions. Is anyone here familiar with these ovens or has any info on it? In the listing it says the Brand is Blodgett but nothing comes up when doing a Google search.
If you’re set on a deck oven, Blodgett isn’t bad but as George said already, Bakers Pride is best in deck ovens. Cheap to repair too. Montague deck ovens are also solid deck ovens if you find one. Where are you planning on opening?
I thought about the Montagues as well. Friend of mine highly recommended them but they are somewhat hard to find used. Perhaps auction houses will have them. Parts, though, should be easy to come by since Montague is out of Hayward, CA.
Thanks so much for your reply. If that’s really a 951 it only has a 36,000 BTU output. I’m not sure if that’s sufficient at all. However, if the guy I was speaking to is correct and the oven really goes up to 800°F then there must be some sort of modification in place.
I believe the 951 has a two-deck 12" height chamber. But if the guy was talking nonsense in regards to the 800°F is there a way to increase BTUs to let’s say 80,000?
