Häussler wood-burning ovens in the bakery and catering trade


The wood-burning oven is based on a centuries-old principle. It incorporates the most primal method of baking since the beginning of mankind. Nevertheless, this form of baking is by no means obsolete – it is more relevant today than ever.

With the wood-burning oven, the fascination for authentic handicraft has moved into the limelight and been re-kindled. Authentic and valuable products are emerging, which which you can delight the customers of your bakery or restaurant and at the same time address and gain new customers.

You can bake so easily in the Häussler wood-burning ovens HABO 10 to HABO 500

Operating and using the Häussler wood-burning oven is very simple. Heating up the cold oven with dry fuel takes approx. 2 to 2.5 hours. After the oven has reached the correct temperature, the hot ash is brushed through the integrated ash channel into the ash pan with the help of the supplied ash rake. It’s clean and simple. Wiping the oven out is not necessary. The baking surface is cleaned of fine ash with the flour brush.

The temperature in the baking chamber is read with the bi-metal dial thermometer. After the heat has been uniformly distributed, the baked good is loaded. The baking time depends on the kind and size of the baked good. Because of the high heat-storing capacity of the Häussler wood-burning ovens, several baked goods can be baked in succession without further heating. First pizza, then bread, then pastries etc.

Wood-burning ovens made in Heiligkreuztal

With the Häussler wood-burning oven models HABO 15, HABO 20 and HABO 30, the capacity can easily be doubled later at any time by setting up a second tier. The width (clear span) of the cast iron doors of HABO models 10, 15 and 20 is 70 cm with all three wood-burning oven versions.

The wood-burning oven model HABO 30 has two cast iron doors side-by-side with a 61 cm width each (clear span). It thereby provides the optimal conditions for loading by means of a racking device or with a peel. Firing is also possible by request from the rear of the oven.

On request, the loading height can be individually adjusted to your needs.

Häussler oven technology

In the past, wood-burning ovens could only be built using an arch, like archways, cellars, bridges etc.

As depicted on the chart, an uneven baking chamber height, however, led to uneven baking results.

Using new technologies, it is possible nowadays to avoid this drawback. Fireclay plates with a larger span width are manufactured today using high pressure. The distance of the oven ceiling to the baked good is thereby exactly the same in the entire baking chamber. The radiant heat acts uniformly on all the loaves of bread. This means that an absolutely uniform baking result (browning) is achieved. Moving the baked goods around is therefore not necessary with the HÄUSSLER wood-burning ovens.

A Häussler wood-burning oven is fired directly in the baking chamber and is baked with gentle, decreasing radiant heat. This type of oven is also designated as an old German oven or original wood-burning oven.
