ENERGY STAR Certified convection ovenDFG-100-ES-large

Meet the ES Series

ENERGY STAR specifications were modified for gas commercial convection ovens beginning January 2014. To meet the new specs (of 46% efficiency) we had to redesign our most popular models.  The ES Series (ES=ENERGY STAR) was born! The ES Series have the Blodgett Signature Features, are built to last decades and have reached an energy efficiency of ±54%.

The 2014 ENERGY STAR modifications affect only Gas Commercial Convection Ovens. We did not modify the design of our electric ovens and models remain ENERGY STAR qualified. We did not make changes to the DFG-XCEL models.

To simplify our naming process, all convection models that are standard depth will have “100” in the model name and models that are bakery depth will have “200” in the model name. Click here to view all convection models.
