When looking into starting your own food-based business whether this is a pop-up café, a bakery business or perhaps even an artisan restaurant there can be many things for you to think about. Once you have chosen you desired location and are looking to kit out your kitchen area there are a few items of commercial equipment that you might want to have a look at.

Ovens – Commercial ovens are larger than your standard domestic ones and allow for you to cook more items at a time. The sort of oven you are looking for will depend on what you are producing on a daily basis and your needs in terms of oven space and hob space. You can find ovens like the Lincat Combi Oven at https://www.247cateringsupplies.co.uk/catering-appliances/commercial-ovens-and-ranges/combination-ovens and it is well worth having a look to see what they have on offer.

Fridges and Freezers – One of the staples of your kitchen equipment should be your fridge and freezer. Again, the type that you need will depend on the amount of food that you have to store, the length of time you will be storing it and whether you will need items to cool down in very short periods of time. This could mean that a standard commercial fridge and freezer will suit you or you may need to look at a cold room instead and perhaps a blast chiller and freezer to cool your items down in no time at all.

Commercial grade mixers – mixing batters and cake mixes by hand is a long and potentially boring task, it also slows down the amount of mixtures that can be made as you need to ensure that the bowls and utensils are washed in between each batch. A mixer allows for you to make larger amounts of the mixtures and in a much quicker time. It is important though that you find a commercial grade mixer as your standard domestic mixer is not intended to be over used and will result in the machinery breaking down.

Industrial dishwasher – No one wants to be washing up pots and pan all day long and a commercial dishwasher will not only mean you don’t need to employ someone to work as a pot washer but it will also ensure that all of your cutlery and equipment will be washed at temperature hot enough to kill of any bacteria and viruses that may be present on them.
