New to Running a Kitchen? Here Is Your Restaurant Equipment Checklist , Virginia Beach, Virginia

One of the most exciting parts of opening a new restaurant is creating the menu. However, without a commercial kitchen stocked with high-functioning industrial-grade equipment, a chef can’t bring his dishes to life. At Tech-24, the licensed and trained technicians offer on-site restaurant equipment repair so the kitchen staff can get back to doing what they do best. For more than 34 years, Tech-24 has been the go-to company for complete restaurant equipment repair and maintenance services.

Whether you are opening a mid-scale restaurant or a fine dining establishment, there are essential pieces of restaurant equipment every kitchen should have:

  • Washing Equipment: Before any dish can be prepared, hands need to be washed, and cutlery must to be cleaned. Every restaurant needs wall-mounted stainless steel sinks for handwashing and three-compartment sinks for dish washing. If you don’t want your employees to have to wash dishes by hand, invest in a commercial dishwasher.

  • Refrigerators & Ice Machines: Many items must be kept at a minimum temperature, although what type of commercial refrigeration equipment you need will depend on the type of restaurant you’re opening. For example, a sandwich shop would want a prep table that provides a place to keep ingredients fresh and close at hand. In addition to reach-in and walk-in refrigerators, you will want an automatic ice machine.Restaurant Equipment

  • Grills & Ovens: Many restaurant owners opt for gas grills, which offer more even cooking than other alternatives. You can get a grill with a flat-top attachment, which is great for breakfast and short-order restaurants. Also standard in many kitchens is a convection oven, which cooks food more evenly and faster than a conventional oven by circulating hot air.

  • Deep Fryer: Whether you serve french fries, fried artichoke hearts, or funnel cake, you’ll need at least one commercial fryer. Even if you are opening a more health-conscious restaurant, there might come a time when you want to offer something deep fried.

Although restaurant equipment varies from restaurant to restaurant, every commercial kitchen will have these items. In addition to offering same-day repair services, Tech-24 also offers installation and removal, equipment refurbishment, and independent quality assessments.
