I Am concidering a Picard electric Modulux 16 pan 4 deck unit. Does anyone have experience with this oven? I would love to know where these ovens are made and where their parts are made as well, Interested in performance, reliability and break downs.

How about calling Picard or their local rep. Also, I recommend checking out the Bread Bakers Guild of America, Their membership includes many independent bakers and bakery owners who can probably help you with an oven choice.

I remember looking at these ovens. Pricey! I found American Baking Systems here in the states. A four deck oven for under 30,000. Plus when I called the owner talked to me about the ovens. He spent alot of time going over the ovens and about running a bakery in general. He gave me alot to think about. Never once was he rushed to hang-up even when I told him I wouldnt be buying anything for another 5 years. Their ovens are simple and well constructed with quality materials. Independent heating controls encased in ceramic. Just check them out and give the guy a call. Picard sure do look fancy but I dont care what the oven looks like. I care what my bread looks like! ABS are in the american culinary school, panera breads, and countless more commercial bakery departments. You want to pay for good looks or a good oven?
