16/02/2017 06:50 AM |

Caterers now have the benefit of a range of commercial equipment to help them in the kitchen, from small appliances like toasters to large convection ovens. Ascot Wholesale is the UK's leading supplier of equipment for the industry and stocks numerous appliances to meet caterers' needs. Below are five top types of equipment used in commercial kitchens, all of which are available to order from Ascot Wholesale at competitive prices.

1. Fryers

Regardless of the type of food you cook, it's likely that at least one dish on your menu will include a side of chips or some kind of fried element. Fryers, whether freestanding or countertop, can come in either single or double tank options and in gas or electric powered models. Although they are generally described as heavy duty appliances, some leading manufacturers do offer lightweight models.

2. Toasters

Though a common household object, toasters are available for commercial use, as well as for domestic purposes. Toasters for professional caterers can toast six slices of bread at once and conveyor toasters can produce more than 350 slices per hour. So if you are running a busy breakfast shift at a large hotel, you can be confident that there will be no delay in getting toast from kitchen to table.

3. Crepe machines

Crepes seem to have soared in popularity in recent years and it's not hard to see why. They consist of a heating element and a circular griddle plate which allows the batter mixture to be spread evenly. Perfect each and every time, crepe machines are a very good investment for restaurants and cafes. Models are available in electric or natural gas options and the appliances offer more variety than people think in that they can cook chapatti, soda bread, tortillas and many other foods as well as pancakes.

4. Pizza ovens

Pizza ovens are a necessity in restaurants offering traditional Italian pizzas, but are a great addition to any establishment offering catering facilities. These devices can be either stone/firebrick or ceramic and they absorb moisture from the dough and remain hot for longer than other oven shelves. Pizza ovens are not only adapted for the Italian favourite, but are also perfect for cooking bread, pies and pasties, so are worth the initial payout.

5. Fly killers

Though it won't cook up a nice meal, a fly killer is a very useful device to have in a professional kitchen as it prevents any unwanted additions to your dishes. The object works by attracting insects with its lamp and then electrocuting them instantly. Housed in a safety frame and with a tray to capture the dried insects, fly killers do their job with minimal impact on the kitchen, allowing you to focus on yours.
