Choosing the right equipment for a small commercial kitchen


With the restaurant industry booming, it can be a hard task to find a decent site for your business. This might mean compromising on the size or practicality of the kitchen itself. Owners and chefs alike have to fit all of their required kitchen equipment and appliances to the space they have been allocated, whether this is a really small space or an awkward layout.

How can you equip your kitchen to the standard you need while still delivering the best quality of food and service for your customers?

Ask the Professionals

While many would prefer to install their kitchen with their own vision in mind, it can be so important to get the professionals in. They know what they are talking about and have experience working with other kitchens within the industry. A kitchen designer will be able to advise you on the exact planning of the room, the layout, the most useful and necessary equipment, and how it can slot into the space available.

If you are a restaurateur building your own kitchen, ensure you go to the source: your chef. The head chef will know exactly what he needs and how best he can work within the kitchen space that he is given.

Aesthetics and Functionality

You may have a particular vision in your head of how your kitchen will look and the style in which it is kitted out, but a good-looking kitchen is nothing if not functional.

Chef Tom Sellers designed his kitchen at Restaurant Story in the knowledge that part of his kitchen would be on show to diners. If you have an open kitchen, you will want practical appliances with the added boost of a gleaming finish or a specific shade.

It is possible to have the best of both worlds. Sellers was determined to have Foster’s EcoPro G2 counter refrigerators as they look great, fit well into the limited space, and provide a reliable refrigeration system. If you have similar space issues and want an impressive-looking oven with high-quality performance, try the Lincat LMR9 6 burner gas oven at .

Keep in mind deliveries and storage space; will your appliance allow for comfortable passage? Multifunctional appliances can be space-saving and practical, like the all-singing, all-dancing SelfCookingCenter by Rational.
