Shopping for food service equipment and supplies
Food service equipment and supplies are necessities if you're running your own food truck or a restaurant. Some types of equipment and supplies to consider include food prep equipment, cooking equipment, disposables for serving food and food storage items. Each type of item is useful at a different stage of food service, and each has an important role in the success of your food-based business. These commercial-grade items are made to stand up to the heavy use involved in professional food preparation and for serving large quantities of food to people.
Choose commercial cooking equipment that accommodates the style of food you plan to serve. In addition to shopping according to the type of cooking you plan to do, you can shop by brand or by sorting search results based on the shipping and pickup options you prefer. Most commercial kitchens have combinations of some or all of these appliances, but what you choose and the quantity of the items depends on your unique needs.
- Rice cookers
Preparing meals for customers to enjoy begins with getting everything ready to go, and choosing commercial-grade prep equipment makes your job easier. These items help you transform the food from its raw or bulk state into usable ingredients that are either ready to finish cooking or to serve directly to customers.
- Blenders: Shop for commercial blenders by brand if you have a favorite, by capacity if you need to quickly prepare large quantities or by power settings.
- French fry cutters: Turn raw potatoes into curly fries, regular fries or steak fries with a commercial French fry cutter. Consider features like interchangeable cutters so you can prepare different kinds with a single unit.
- Mixers: Capacity and attachments you need are things to consider when shopping for commercial mixers. For example, if you prepare large batches of bread or pizza dough, a large-capacity mixer with a bread hook will be a time-saver. Small-batch cooking is easier to accommodate with a smaller mixer that saves space.
- Scales: Scales are useful when you need to weigh every portion for accuracy, and you can choose traditional analog dial scales or digital scales powered by battery or electricity.
- Work tables and stations: Make the most of your available space with work tables and stations that have storage shelves underneath. Or, measure your available space and choose a table that fits within your work area neatly.
- Food dehydrators: Commercial food dehydrators are useful for making large batches of dried fruits, vegetables or jerky. Commercial dehydrators have more trays and space to get food ready faster.
- Food-packaging appliances: When you need to freeze foods or store them a while longer, vacuum sealers pull out the excess air and keep food fresher. Sealer bags come in different sizes to accommodate your portion requirements.
- Food processors: Hand-crank meat grinders are useful for preparing small batches of meat, while electric ones with high-powered motors are ideal for creating larger batches. Other commercial food processors are all-purpose units that are suited to many other types of food preparation.
- Meat slicers: Blade size and power are things to consider when shopping for a meat slicer and the type of meat you plan to cut affects the blade size you need. For example, if you're cutting large roasts, a 14-inch blade can work well. Smaller blocks of cheese or prepared sausages do well on a 9-inch blade.
Food service disposables
There's a variety of uses for disposables in the food industry, both within the food- and beverage-preparation stages and for serving take-out food and drinks to customers. Some things customers might appreciate are eco-friendly or compostable products and BPA-free products. You can find environmentally friendly versions of the following products:
- Coffee filters
- Disposable bags
- Disposable bowls
- Disposable cups
- Disposable cutlery
- Disposable plates
- Take-out containers
When you aren't preparing or serving food, you need a place to keep it. That's where units such as shelving, coolers and storage containers come in handy. Choose these items based on your available space and the types of food you need to store between uses.
- Food storage and transport items: Things to consider when choosing food storage containers include the quantities of food you expect to store and whether you need to be able to put them in the microwave or convection oven to reheat the food inside.
- Restaurant food carriers: Things to look for in this type of food carrier include capacity and whether you need lids for storing food in the containers.
- Restaurant shelving and storage racks: Shelving and storage racks provide extra space for keeping your restaurant or food truck organized. Measuring your available space and comparing it to the product dimensions is an easy way to decide what type of shelving you can use.
