Spiral Oven


Cooking, heating, browning: The spiral oven from JBT ALCO slowly and gently runs products through the cooking process by means of a spiral conveyor belt that can be extended if required. That way, large quantities of your product will be cooked, roasted, browned or just steam cooked very evenly in the spiral oven with circulating air and/or steam. Several successively activated spirals allow for cooking over different climate zones. In addition, you can set the gap between the individual spiral levels exactly and smoke your product through an external smoking system with an individual intensity and color. That way, even larger products like whole chickens, burgers, or lasagna get their appetizing brownness and succulent consistency.


Our spiral oven heats, cooks, and browns products through circulating air and/or steam. Adjust the spiral belt guide individually to product quantity and size.

Perfectly suitable for:
meat loaf, whole chickens, burgers, nuggets, bacon, lasagna, pretzels
