Commercial Cooking Equipment

In the food service industry, you need tools and equipment similar to those found in a regular kitchen. The big difference is that in a commercial kitchen, you will need things on a larger scale. This means bigger ovens, sinks, dishwashers, refrigerators, etc.

In a commercial kitchen, such as one you would find in a restaurant or cafeteria, you will need to have several large appliances and many cooking tools to be successful. This commercial cooking equipment you have in your kitchen will depend specifically on your business. For instance, in a bakery you will focus more on ovens, while in fast food you will have a bigger need for fryers.

The first step in putting together your commercial kitchen is to analyze your cooking equipment needs. Begin by making a list of the items you require for your business. Since you only have so much room to work with in your kitchen, it is vital that you choose your equipment carefully and avoid filling up space with things you don't need. Quality is also an important consideration. Although you may be on a tight budget, don't scrimp on cooking equipment that you want to last for years and years. Equipment that is poorly made will give you more trouble in the long run, as it may need repairs or even replacing sooner than a higher quality model.

As you decide what cooking equipment you need in your commercial kitchen, consider these options:

  • Fryer. Most restaurants (and fast food establishments especially) require a deep fryer to assist with preparing various fried foods.
  • Utensils. All restaurant kitchens will need utensils to help prepare dishes. These could include spatulas, scrapers, knives, spoons, forks, ladles, measuring spoons, and more.
  • Oven. Most food service kitchens use an oven. Choose one that has the capacity you need for high efficiency.
  • Range. A commercial range can offer burners, griddles, ovens, and more—sometimes available all in one model.
  • Pots and Pans. The right pots and pans are important to keep things running smoothly in your kitchen. Have the right amount in the right sizes to cook orders.
  • Other items. Microwaves, mixers, toasters, toaster ovens, blenders, and other cooking tools can add convenience to your commercial kitchen.

When putting your kitchen together, choose equipment that will fit easily in your available space and will handle the job you need it to do.
