Types of Commercial Bakery Racks

1. Conventional Bakery Racks – These are rectangular racks with sides and cross members. The design is meant to support multiple baking sheet pans and allow for wheels or other attachments. Conventional racks are stronger than nesting ones.

2. Nesting Racks - These are just like conventional racks, but their cross members are diagonally placed so one rack can “nest” into another to save space.

3. Oven Racks – Oven racks, as well as their parts and accessories, are specifically designed to withstand a baking oven’s high temperatures.

4. Cooling Racks – Just like the name implies, these allow baked goods to cool down. They can also be used for other purposes from depanning to storage.

5. Knock Down Racks – These are just like conventional racks, but they can literally be knocked down or collapsed to allow for flat packing and easy transport.

The Benefits of Commercial Bakery Racks

  • They let the heat dissipate faster which helps baked goods cool quickly.
  • They help in draining the fats from baked goods; making them less soggy and oily.
  • Bakery carts are not just for food. They can also be used to cool hot pans faster and more evenly. (Side note: Why is this important? Well, baking is an art and every variable must be taken into account. The cooling of the pan helps in baking the pastry evenly.)
  • Baked products placed on the racks are less prone to condensation. This helps them keep the proper texture.

Rack Material Choices

  1. Stainless Steel – This the most common material for racks because of it is sanitary and resistant to corrosion. It is also very durable to the initial investment is very much worth it.
  2. Aluminum – Aluminum is also strong and resistant to corrosion. It is a good choice for commercial bread racks because aluminum is known to be better at dissipating heat.

Rack Configuration

Commercial racks for bread and other baked goods are configured in different ways.

  1. Single – The single configuration means that the rack supports one single pan per level.
  2. Double – This configuration supports two pans per level.
  3. Side Load or End Load – Load refers to how the rack supports the pan. Side load means the wide side of the pan is inserted in the racks and supported by the short sides. End load is the opposite. Double racks usually have the side load configuration. Single racks can either be side load or end load.

High quality bakery and commercial cooking equipment is a must in any bakery and kitchen. AmGoodSupply bakery racks will surely increase your bakery’s efficiency, productivity, and profit.

FAQ about Bakery Racks

In any kitchen environment, poor organization wastes a lot of time, which in turn hurts team morale and chips away at their productivity. Insufficient storage not only limits your production rate but also compromises the quality of the food products themselves. This is especially true for baked goods, which are far more sensitive to temperature and moisture. Commercial kitchens invest in bakery racks to improve both food quality and work rate. The simple addition of some clever storage has a huge effect on the success of the business.

What are Bakery Racks used for?

As the name suggests, baking racks are used for baking, namely breads, pastries, cakes, and desserts. All kinds of commercial kitchens use baking racks to streamline their process and maximize walk-in and counter space in doing so. Found in cafes, restaurants, and bars all over, bakery racks provide baked goods with proper air circulation for the best texture. They are also great for evenly drying pots and pans, which is especially useful when dealing with pastry.

Why do you need Bakery Racks for the kitchen?

If you deal with larger quantities of baked goods, there’s really no substitute for proper bakery racks. High-quality racking keeps a kitchen organized, but more crucially saves valuable space. Some designs of bakery racks, such as nesting and knock-down, offer even more convenient storage. As bakery racks are typically made from stainless steel, they offer heavy-duty support and incredibly simple maintenance. Available in single or double configurations, where you can support one or two trays per level, bakery racks are undoubtedly the most efficient way to hold baked goods. The majority of commercial kitchens with a lot of baking to do find that it’s practically impossible to keep up a fast pace without bakery racks.

Where to buy Bakery Racks?

You can purchase bakery racks from a number of trusted providers, including AmgoodSupply. They offer 18-gauge stainless steel racking in numerous styles and sizes, committed to NSF-certified materials and highly functional design.

How much does it cost to buy new Bakery Racks?

Bakery racks vary in size, style, and materials. The cost of a bakery rack will chiefly depend on the number of tiers, the specific features, and whether it’s heavy-gauge stainless steel or aluminum. It’s also important to remember that whilst all bakery racks can be used as multifunctional cooling racks, certain kinds are specifically designed to withstand the temperatures of a baking oven too, which can affect the cost. For reference, the 10 Tier Heavy Duty Pan Rack from AmgoodSupply is priced at $139.95, whilst the larger 20 Tier Pan Rack costs $249.95. The price of a bakery rack typically indicates the build quality, whereas cheaper racks have an increased risk of warping or breaking.
