Foodservice Equipment

There are four main areas of food service equipment, including food preparation, cooking, food refrigeration and cleaning. These are the areas that require equipment for hotels and restaurants as well as for hospitals, schools and corporate cafeterias. The type and size of equipment that the food service outlet needs will depend on the type of food it prepares and how much. You can find a wide variety of restaurant supply equipment online at places like

Different Types of Equipment



Many commercial kitchens require an oven, but there is a variety of sizes and types from which to choose. For example, if a restaurant mainly serves pizza, it will need several pizza ovens, but if it serves pizza along with many other items, it may only require a small commercial oven. Convection ovens have fans inside that move the hot air around to cook the food fast and evenly. Conveyor ovens are mainly for fast-food outlets where the food is on a conveyor that runs through an oven. There are also warming ovens to keep food hot until it is taken to the customer’s table.

Refrigerators and Freezers


Refrigerators and freezers are very important for properly storing food. Stored food must be kept at the right temperature to maintain taste and stay safe. A commercial refrigeration system may have a walk-in refrigerator or may have a refrigerator and freezer combination. There are also chest-style freezers similar to home-style freezers, but much larger.

Commercial dishwashers need to be very large to accommodate large pots and pans along with a lot of dirty dishes. Some restaurants have employees who wash dishes by hand. They require industrial sized sinks with taps that include sprayer hoses that are hung above the sink. This equipment allows the employee to clean dishes thoroughly and quickly.

Counters and kitchen islands are also common equipment for food preparation. Other equipment includes large mixers for bread and pastry dough as well as deep fryers, milkshake mixers, commercial coffee makers and soda dispensers.

If you need to upgrade a commercial kitchen or are planning to open a restaurant, you can find high-quality restaurant supplies online at prices that won’t break your budget. If you are an amateur chef at home and would like to have some professional equipment, your best option is to look at a restaurant supply store online, so you can choose the best product for your situation.

Hwaroro Foodie Adventure

At Hwaroro for a Korean adventure!

At Hwaroro for a Korean adventure!

Its been awhile since I last went out to eat. Very much so that I didn’t pass up the chance to go with colleagues on a Korean Adventure!

Last I had a Korean dish was about 4 or 5 years ago from the food market we call Bancheto. I knew the foos we had was authentic as the kind Yeoja (lady) made it herself! We were introduced through a common friend where she met her at the school she teaches. I had the opportunity to try Dukboki with Kimmali and it was superb! Absolutely spicy and heavenly at the same time. And now, I am adding Sam gyeop sal and others to my list.

Oh! look at those selections. Yum!
