If loaves are too close together then the heat cannot get around them. This has one of two effects. Those in the middle are likely to be under-baked, perhaps remaining frozen in the middle of the loaf and, if you are making allowance for the centre loaves, then the external loaves will be over-baked and too dark in crush colour - and perhaps dry when they should be baked but not arid.

Part baked breads can also be complete din th edeck ovens. As withte revent ovens there is a specific setting for 400g Frozen breads.

Managers Note: Bakers will use the soft roll settings on the deck ovens as a time saver so as not to have to wait for temperature changes. While this is a valid point this temperature will not defrost / finish baking the part-baked loaves fully. Ensure that they use a temperature probe on one or more sample loaves to check that they are indeed baked. The temperature should be at least 74d C.
