No person in the forum should second guess the registered design professional. He/she feels for one reason or another that the protection from water is warranted. Maybe he/she is worried about cleaning and washing down of the bakery. I'd just ask that person why. I'm sure they have a good reason for it.
You speak kindly to those you have never worked with. These guys are lazy, they oversize everything - not because they are smart but because they don't want to do the work... Please avoid asking me why i work with them. thanks for replying but i'm looking for actual NEC information, not opinions.
I can't give that information because it is a judgment call being done by the person designing the project. Usually the person designing the project has a better understanding of the project than someone replying in the NFPA X-change.
obviously the designer has a better understanding... I didn't ask you to speculate anything.
I'm asking for information that pertains to NEC. Not asking for you to type circles and make yourself feel important or knowledgeable on something, slightly act like you having something that you don't think you need to share.
LOL move along
You are looking for a blanket statement or opinion that NEMA 4X isn't required for a panelboard in a bakery, and NEC support for such a statement. You won't get it from me. Again, this is a judgement call made by the design professional.
Thank you for your post,

Stainless Steel is the 'sure fire' solution in regards to;
Is there anything better? -No.
Save a dollar? -And it doesn't save in the long run.
Perhaps the Bakery is for Dog Food. -or Doughnuts.
Last (and least); SS protects against corrosion! <-- (final answer)
