If you've pulled funds together to install a semi-commercial kitchen, have you thought about what appliances you need to start feeding your community? Here, we round up the benefits of the different cooking appliances available
Professional cooking equipment is different to domestic appliances – it’s more robust, more efficient for more hungry mouths and can save you time, energy and money. But from the commercial microwave to multi-functional cooking stations, finding the right ones for your menu and church infrastructure doesn’t need to be a tricky task.
The heat is on
Hobs, ovens, grills, chip fryers… the list might feel endless when it comes to options for heating and cooking food for your congregation or community. But the best place to start is by looking at what your current space can accommodate. How much gas can the main gas pipe supply to your kitchen? And does your main fuse board have the capacity for your combined appliances? If you’re willing – and have the budget – to take on a full renovation, you don’t necessarily have to take this into account, but if you’re replacing a tired kitchen in the same space, you need to understand your limitations.
For example, if you’ve decided that you’d like to offer 10 different jacket potato toppings, a Baked Potato Oven might be the ideal choice. But how many do you need? Do you have the space to store them? And the sockets to power them? Or maybe you’re opening a new café – if you’re restricted by your current space, realistically, how many ovens or hobs can you install? And what kind of cooking equipment do you actually need for the job at hand? Luckily, Steelplan Kitchens can help:
