FAQs

  • Cooking Equipment: Ovens, ranges, fryers, griddles, and combi ovens.
  • Refrigeration: Commercial fridges, freezers, Ice makers and blast chillers.

Why is commercial kitchen equipment important for restaurants?

Commercial kitchen equipment is essential for restaurants because it is built for the job! The right equipment for the right task ensures efficiency, consistency, and safety in food preparation, which means customers get a consistent product every time they visit. High-quality equipment can handle the rigorous demands of a busy kitchen, maintain food safety standards, and contribute to the success of your business. By enhancing staff productivity and reducing equipment downtime, plus ensuring food safety standards at all times, the right commercial equipment is crucial for every commercial kitchen.

How to choose commercial kitchen equipment?

When choosing commercial kitchen equipment, consider the following factors:

  • Equipment Needs Assessment: Evaluate the specific needs of your restaurant, including menu requirements and available space in the kitchen.
  • Ventilation Assessment: Check which items are rated above 8kW in energy output, including ovens and dishwashers, as these will need exhaust ventilation.
  • Quality and Durability: Opt for reputable brands and products with good reviews to ensure you have products that will be dependable and reliable in the long run.
  • Energy Efficiency: Choose energy-efficient models to save on running costs and reduce your environmental footprint. We offer a wide range of new-generation commercial refrigeration with environmentally friendly refrigerant that is also up to 30% cheaper to run.
  • Compliance: Ensure the equipment meets local health and safety regulations. A visit from the health inspector to find non-compliant equipment can be a huge risk to your business being shut down.
  • Budget: Balance quality with budget constraints, considering financing options if necessary. We often recommend a few select, high-end pieces of equipment for front of house, such as Williams Refrigeration or Roband appliances. These go well with more cost-effective brands for the hard-working kitchen duties, such as Thermaster and AG Equipment.
  • Warranty and Support: Check for warranties and the availability of customer support and service. Most equipment categories are now offering 2 or 4+ year warranties. Don’t get caught out with a dinosaur-brand that is still only offering the bare minimum!

How often should commercial kitchen equipment be serviced?

Commercial kitchen equipment should be serviced regularly to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Preventive maintenance is much cheaper in the long run than replacing equipment when it fails due to user-error. Regular servicing helps prevent unexpected breakdowns, ensures safety, and maintains compliance with health regulations. We recommend the following:

  • Refrigeration: Clean Filter Monthly for smaller cafes, clean weekly for higher volume
  • Gas cooking: Clean Filter Monthly for smaller cafes, clean weekly for higher volume
  • Gas cooking: Clean daily, have serviced at least every six months
  • Combi Ovens: Clean daily at the end of service, have professionally serviced at least every six months
  • Compliance: Ensure the equipment meets local health and safety regulations. A visit from the health inspector to find non-compliant equipment can be a huge risk to your business being shut down.
  • Dishwashers: Clean weekly, check filter and drain for blockages each week & have serviced at least every six months

Can I finance the purchase of commercial kitchen equipment with SilverChef Rent-Try-Buy Funding?

Yes, you can finance the purchase of commercial kitchen equipment through SilverChef’s Rent-Try-Buy program. This flexible funding option allows you to rent the equipment initially and decide later if you want to buy it outright, continue renting, upgrade to something bigger or return it all together. This program helps manage cash flow by charging a low weekly rental price instead of the full purchase amount up front. Better yet, those weekly repayments are 100% tax deductible. This is how over 70% of Medium-Large businesses operate and manage their business assets. Just like a mobile phone, why not upgrade it to the new model every year and ensure it’s always the latest tech with a fresh warranty?

How do I ensure the safety and compliance of my commercial kitchen equipment?

To ensure the safety and compliance of your commercial kitchen equipment:

  • Purchase from Reputable Suppliers: Restaurant Equipment Online only sources its products from reputable suppliers who meet expensive regulatory standards.
  • Regular Maintenance:Schedule routine maintenance with your staff and annual services with licensed technicians. Just like your car, service your equipment 1-2 times annually.
  • Staff Training: Train your staff on proper equipment use and regular cleaning protocols.
  • Compliance Checks: Stay updated on local health and safety regulations and ensure your equipment meets these standards.
  • Safety Features: Choose equipment with built-in safety features such as automatic shut-off and temperature controls.

What are the latest trends in commercial kitchen equipment in 2024?

Commercial kitchen equipment is not exactly known as a tech-leading sector! In fact most of the types of products remain staples in the kitchen, year after year. However, 2024 is the year of inflation and rising costs, which is felt in every business, and forces business owners to start considering, if not all-out embracing new technology.

Smart Kitchens are coming in hot, and their adoption in Europe and the USA is already ahead of Australia. This includes the integration of IoT and smart technology for remote monitoring and control. An example is Skope Refrigeration, with its optional automatic food temperature logging systems.

Business owners are concerned more than ever with Energy Efficiency, due to the never-ending rising costs of energy. Eco-friendly equipment, such as FED-X’s Environmentally friendly fridges that use R290-A refrigerant are also up to 30% cheaper to run, so friendly to the environment as well as your back pocket!

New legislation and the phasing out of gas appliances is ushering in a new generation of space-saving equipment for smaller kitchens and food trucks, such as Induction Cooktops and Fryers. Many manufacturers have already started offering these products, while some Australian manufacturers, including Austheat, have been offering these appliances for many years already.

Aside from energy efficient and new electrical products, restaurateurs are also beginning to use new, automated systems for repetitive tasks to improve efficiency and reduce labour costs, such as the RoboChef which can replace a full-time chef in your kitchen! These systems are effectively the next generation of multi-functional equipment, which performs multiple functions to save space and costs. These products include Combi and Conveyor Ovens, which can be used for hundreds of different dishes.
