So, I am starting my business plan for opening a cake shop. I need help finding the type and size of oven that will be needed. To say that I am overwhelmed on this is an understatement! LOL I don't need anything too big. This shop will be very small to begin with. However, I do want it to grow with me. I am looking on Craigslist for my kitchen items. Can someone out there give me any tips?? Please icon_biggrin.gif

Thank you!!!

I bought a Deluxe oven. It was new, spent about $3K-$4K, that was 3 or so years ago. You can look them up at Deluxeovens.com. It has 3 racks, I can fit quite a bit in there.

I had heard good things about the brand plus the city didn't require me to have a hood with this type of oven which saved a ton of money.

I did find some other stuff on ebay. The frig and work tables, new and at a good price. HTH a little and good luck to you! icon_smile.gif

i used a local kitchen supply shop. I bought an Imperial oven with 5 racks for $3,500. It was a steal in my book. Look around for restaurant supply companies in the area before doing all your research on the internet. We found some great deals with our supplier, and they delivered and set it up for us. They can also find used items too. It sometimes helps in the whole process since it can be overwhelming. Good luck to you!
