Vegetarian Means Vegan, Right?

Actually vegetarians tend to differ from what Vegans consider themselves to be. The exact reasons for why, evade me at the moment.

I eat plenty of vegetables but also enjoy eggs so I think this means I may be a vegetarian but I am not a vegan because eggs are not on their menu. I need to watch my calories and weight.

Veganism, if I may, seems to be more like a religion than just a healthy eating regime. I think the term is applied to not only eggs but even to wearing things that may have once been alive, like leather.

I have no feelings on this one way or another and think our life choices are just that, our life choices.

Should You Buy a New or Used Commercial Pizza Oven?

By Sue Quillen

Are you wondering if you must you purchase a new or used commercial pizza oven? The answer would depend on a lot of variables. Many people find themselves shopping for used commercial pizza ovens just because they suspect that these would be less expensive. That is not true in numerous cases. There are some new models coming out that are cheap as or less expensive than the used commercial ovens. Aside from price, some of the more major points you should be looking into are:

1. The actual use of the oven.

Incredibly, there are a reasonable number of people that look at ovens first before they think of the actual food products they mean to sell. To paraphrase, they make their food suit the standards of the oven, instead of the other way around.

It is significant to understand first what you mean to sell before you go purchasing a pricey piece of kit like this. If you want to sell 16" pies for almost all of the selling day, ensure that you get an oven that may fit the bill. You won't find the range of new and used models lacking. However, you still need to ensure that you get the right sized oven and the right style (conveyor or decked ) to fit your needs.

2. Check product specifications.

One of the cons of getting new models is the attachments of expensive features you may not be ready to use or pay to for. Read thru product specifications with a fine-tooth comb. Some chic outlines like "automatic sauting and browning functions, complete with baffle fan to guarantee uniform heat distribution" can add a large amount of zeroes at the end of a price tag.

But the truth is: most commercial and convection ovens have these functions already. So you are basically paying for more money for nothing.

On the other hand, if you're looking into used commercial pizza ovens, try and ensure that these are in perfect condition before you put your money down for a sale. Replacing parts and cleaning the oven completely could be necessary.

Just remember this straightforward rule : if you estimate that the cost of patching up a used oven is about the same as a newer model, then go for the newer one. If not, then you will find a good investment with a formerly "loved" commercial pizza oven.
