Even at the early stage of your business, you can still make do with four to five of them and begin to purchase more as the business expands.

    Commercial Kitchen Mixer

    In this blog post, we want to share important information about the five must-have food processing equipment for either your catering or restaurant business. They are considered "must-have" because they can't be done without in the kitchen. For example, think about the stress of mixing your bread or pizza dough with the manual processes. What if they ordered in large quantities?

     

    The following are the five must-have food equipment you must have in your restaurant kitchen.

    1. Mixer

    Commercial Mixer

    The use of a mixer in your restaurant kitchen is inevitable because people love pizza, bread, and meals that require a thorough mixture of ingredients. A mixer is a kitchen equipment that blend, stir together, and combine different material into a single substance. It is of different types, which include the Spiral mixer, planetary mixer, stand mixer, dough mixer, and even the blender.

    The mixers usually made up of a bowl and an agitator. The agitator can be a whip or blade and depending on the model, a strong electric motor is either connected to the bowl or the agitator. So that while one remains stationary, the other one is moving at a great speed to cause the mixture of the materials placed in it.

    The machine does not only save you the stress but also reduces the time for the preparation of a meal. And having a machine with such working capacity in your arsenal is an advantage during rushing time. It does assist caterers to meet the high demands on them and a thorough mixture of the food ingredients is assured.

     

    2. Slicers and cutters

    A commercial kitchen ought to be a place where all the fascinating occurs. It is where cooking becomes easy, interesting, faster, and orderly. Lots of these can be accomplished by having a cutter or a slicer in your kitchen. These are the equipment that is used in cutting meats, fruits, bread, and vegetables into various sizes and shapes with the use of less effort.

    The dicers and the graters also fall into this category. Sometimes they are made separately, but nowadays the manufacturers are making the combined models. These are models that can perform both slicing and cutting. An example of that is the Dito Sama combined cutter and vegetable slicers.

    The precision achieved by using a meat slicer is another reason for you to add it to your buying kart. With a meat slicer, you can cut meat into various sizes accurately unlike using a knife. 

     

    3. Dough rollers

    Now that you have your dough out from the mixer, it's time to make them flat and divide them into different sizes. But how are you going to do that correctly with the large quantity of dough you have on your table? Maybe get more staff and have more people on your payroll at the end of the month. No, for the success of your business you need to cut away unnecessary expenses. An investment on a dough roller will do the task.

    A dough roller or dough sheeter is a kitchen equipment that is usually used by bakeries, catering services, and restaurants to compress dough into sheets. The roller press so hard on the dough to produce a flatter and consistent dough sheets unlike using the manual dough pin. This machine is very important in your kitchen because there is always a high demand for bread and pastries. Moreover, hardly a day will go by without people ordering their pizzas.

    The set is never complete until you buy a dough divider. A dough divider is a machine used for cutting the dough into different sizes. This equipment is specially made in different solid shapes to cut pizza or dough into different shapes.

    The shiny, metallic surface creates a professional, sleek and sophisticated look for any kitchen.

    Even better, it’s incredibly versatile in appearance. That means stainless steel benches fit in well wherever they’re placed; the same worktop will look just as good in any location.
