Bakers Pride Y600 is one of the most popular pizza ovens in the world. It is a true best-seller with thousands of units sold and used in restaurants across the globe. But how does a slightly smaller, but also powerful GP61 stack up to it?
Both these two models are gas-operated deck ovens, but they are different. The Y-600 oven is larger, with a higher deck. The GP61 has a smaller footprint, but it can still handle the demands of a busy restaurant. The GP61 has a temperature range of up to 650F, while the Y-600 can reach up to 750F. The Y-600 has six burners, while the GP61 has four. The Y-600 also features independently controlled top and bottom heat dampers.
With up to 120 000 BTU per hour, the Y600 is more powerful and quicker, and a true workhorse of an oven, thanks to its all stainless steel construction. However, the new Y600 is priced at around $20K, which may be too much if you do not need the amount of power and capacity that this pizza oven has to offer. The GP61 is more affordable, and it can still handle the demands of a busy pizzeria.
