A Guide to Choosing Restaurant Appliances, Honolulu, Hawaii

Running a commercial kitchen is no easy feat, and it involves a number of moving pieces. Properly choosing and maintaining restaurant appliances, like commercial refrigerators, means educating yourself on the best options for your particular kitchen. As a restaurant owner, it’s up to you to know the ins and outs of your operation so you can make savvy decisions regarding upkeep.

Below are three tips to help you select and implement the right restaurant appliances for your commercial kitchen:

  • Size First: Before you can purchase an appliance, determine what size you need and how much space you can reasonably devote to it. Refrigerators, in particular, take up a significant amount of space and should be measured precisely before purchasing. The ideal unit should hold all of your ingredients or dishes while keeping your energy costs down. 
  • restaurant appliancesConsider Cooling Power: When buying a commercial refrigerator, figure out how much energy is required to keep the contents cold. This will depend largely on what your restaurant serves, what you’ll hold in the fridge, and how often it will be opened.
  • Handy Features: Aside from keeping your food cold, you should look to your commercial cooler to keep your kitchen running efficiently. Look for features that will maintain a consistent temperature, like a digital temperature and humidity display. You may also want to install a unit with a built-in ramp that allows for easier deliveries and drop-offs. If you’re unsure what features will best benefit your kitchen, ask local refrigeration experts to suggest a few options.
