Air impingement oven technology is a relatively new and promising commercial development to increase the efficiency, uniformity, and energy savings. Jet impingement ovens represent a special class of forced convection ovens, which were first designed by Smith [1]. In these ovens, high velocity (5-50 m s−1) jets of hot air (100°C-250°C) impinge on a food product. A schematic diagram of a jet impingement oven is shown in Figure 19.1, with multiple jets impinging on a food product.
