Navigating ENERGY STAR Options for Commercial Convection Ovens

Going green has far surpassed the status of “trend”—instead, it’s become something bigger than imagined. For restaurant owners, this may be a hot topic, especially when searching for new cooking equipment. 

Many different models claim to be “efficient”, “green” and “eco-friendly” – making it hard to know exactly what you are looking at and what your business needs in order to be a high-functioning, low-impact space. 

What to Look for when Shopping

When shopping for a convection oven, always check that they are ENERGY STAR® Certified. These models offer 30% more energy-efficiency compared to other non-labeled units. This is a key indicator of a well built, high-functioning, energy-efficient oven.

At Vulcan, all our commercial convection ovens are certified to ensure you are getting the best product and are eligible for savings. From dining halls to quick service restaurants, we have developed a series of commercial convection ovens that meet the needs of kitchens of all sizes and cooking styles. 

If you are looking at a specific model or currently own something similar, you can use Energy Star’s Commercial Equipment Calculator to see if you’re eligible for savings.

Never sacrifice cooking performance for energy-efficiency when you own a Vulcan. All of our models yield fantastic, even baking - top-to-bottom, front-to-back and side-to-side and they are ALL ENERGY STAR® Certified.

Creating the Most Efficient Kitchen

Navigating the nearly endless amounts of kitchen appliances can seem daunting. We can help. At Vulcan, your success is our priority, which means we will help you find the right model for your long-term benefit in both cost savings and the production of high-quality food.
