Post Commercial Kitchen Equipment
Commercial Kitchen Equipment
by: Phillip Sacker

It pays to shop around when refitting your kitchen or just buying the odd piece. Kitchen equipment is an expensive layout and would normally come under capital expenditure, so finding the best deal will keep the accountant happy.

There are plenty of companies around, most of which can now be found on-line so that you can generally view most commercial kitchen equipment on the screen before ordering. Many companies will provide an on site quote for you and also include some design for your kitchen, which is generally included in the price. Don’t be afraid to ask for a discount even though the equipment may already be at a sale price. Both large and small equipment companies will expect some sort of ‘deal’ to be done and they may be happy to offer this if they can see that you are a customer who may buy more from them in the future.

Kitchen design is so important these days, especially when kitchen space is at a premium. Commercial kitchen equipment companies generally have a better idea of what will fit in where and the best way to do it. Ask for their help, even though you might have to pay a little extra as they may spot things that you have missed. Much better to get some expert help rather than buying something that you may know little about and may not fit into the kitchen in the best way. You may be stuck with something that is too large, too small or just doesn’t fit.

Large restaurants or kitchens in hotels, hospitals or other associated sites generally have experienced chefs who know what they want. In these instances it is best to try and get them directly involved with the design. Don’t forget, they are going to be the ones to work in these areas. The last thing that an owner wants is his head chef complaining every day that this doesn’t work properly or that’s too big or too small. By getting the chef involved, he has put his own ‘mark’ on it. None the less, the owner must however have the final say and keep hold of the ‘purse strings’. Commercial kitchen equipment is expensive and must last for as long as possible.

Some of these equipment companies can also supply you with a full temporary kitchen if you are doing a complete re-fit. Have a look, it’s amazing what they can do in a small space.
