BAKING: Wachtel GmbH & Co.
The company Wachtel GmbH & Co. manufactures STIR®-deck baking oven and rack ovens. Further oven manufacturers are in progress.
“As the application of the infrared technology STIR® has been limited for rack ovens with radiant heat, the company Wachtel managed it with the patented Compact K STIR® for the first time to combine the systems of convection heat and radiant heat in a rack oven. Thereby this oven provides all benefits that are already known from the deck ovens with STIR®, which means better product quality, longer lasting freshness and up to 30% shorter backing times.”

Baker with STIR® experience
Master Baker Ronny Nestler, Geising GERMANY: „I opened my bakery in Geising/Erzgebirge in December 2006 and decided for my new acquisition in favour of a STIR®-oven of the Pulsnitzer company Wachtel. With this oven I am baking, e. g. rye mixed bread in 45 instead of the conventional 60 minutes and for difficult cake types (e. g. egg custard cake, sour cream cake, poppy-seed cake, etc.) the baking time has halved. Due to this faster baking technology I could save the acquisition of a stove and also save energy costs, as I am able to switch off the oven rather soon.
“My clients do appreciate about STIR®-baked bread its two days longer freshness in comparison to conventional baked bread. But also with rolls and cakes the quality relating to freshness is considerably better.”
