More and more people opt for online sales of prepared food and takeout as the pandemic continues to rage on. If you are looking for a new business idea, mainly if you were laid off from or had to close a food business, delivering food made at your home can be a great idea to make a living. From our years of experience in supplying foodservice businesses with equipment and advice, we compiled a list of essential cooking equipment that will save you time and money once the orders start rolling in.

A deep fryer is essential if you plan to sell fast convenience foods, such as potato chips, fried chicken and chips. If you have limited floor space, you may opt for a countertop fryer. If you plan to sell a few chips and hotdogs over the weekend, a countertop fryer will do. On the other hand, a floor-standing fryer will allow you to fry larger quantities and move around your equipment to accommodate the menu for the day or changing your kitchen layout.

Ovens are the most versatile equipment a kitchen can have, as it can be used for baking, braising, roasting and more. Our range includes convection ovens that circulate hot air to ensure even baking of any dough or pastry-based food such as pies, bread, rolls and cakes. On the other hand, a deck oven will give you the multitasking ability to bake more than one product at different temperatures simultaneously. They also use less electricity than convection ovens.

If burgers, eggs or pancakes are part of your menu, you will need a griddle or griller. We have grillers with stainless steel griddle plates that are smooth and non-porous, making it easy to clean and eliminates the transfer of flavour from one food type to another. It will also save you a massive amount of frying oil compared to other cooking methods.

Give us a call to discuss your plans, and you will be on your way to a well-equipped and affordable kitchen setup.
