Kitchen Equipment – A Key to Business Success
What is your favourite restaurant, and why? Perhaps it is the customer service, ambience, or even the location. However, we’ll often find that the menu is the driving force behind a successful restaurant or catering business most of the time.
What makes the food great?
When it comes to producing and serving food that brings in customers, we tend to think of a skilful chef, and the freshness of the ingredients used. Of course, the chefs play a large role in creating the menu and tasty dishes and should be credited for their talent and ability. However, behind the scenes, the setup and equipment available in the kitchen are equally important. Imagine if the cooking grill is inadequate or not having the suitable utensils to work with. It will be challenging to produce quality dishes regardless of how skilful your master chef may be.
High quality, efficient, and adequate Commercial Kitchen Equipment is a key to helping Chefs, and your restaurant succeed. Here are some considerations when you’re planning your commercial kitchen:
Commercial Kitchen Must-Haves
Start with the basics and determine what the essential items are you must-have in your kitchen; usually, this includes:
- Commercial Dishwashers
- Utensils, cutlery and dishes
- Commercial refrigerators and freezers
- Stoves, grills and ovens
Bear in mind that all your equipment should be at a commercial-grade due to multiple workers’ heavy usage. The last thing you need is when something breaks down during the peak period in your restaurant. Ensure that the appliances meet all safety standards and are well maintained and serviced regularly to extend durability.
You might also want to consult with your chefs and kitchen staff to prepare a list of equipment for purchase and identify the priorities. If there are items that you can defer buying, you can save up your funds and make a more informed and better-quality purchase later on. Never rush into purchasing equipment that you might not need or are unsuitable later on.
