Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Question: Why is the brick oven at Wegmans in the town of Dewitt being dismantled?

Answer: It's is an upgrade in technology according to spokeswoman Evelyn Carter.

She says Wegmans is replacing its brick ovens with MIWE deck ovens.

These can be programmed to allow for a more consistent product and for more than one type of product to be baked simultaneously.

MIWE deck ovens are also smaller and easier to maintain and getting rid of the wood in the brick ovens will help with food safety.
