5 Commercial Kitchen Must Haves

*Collaborative post.

A commercial kitchen must have all the equipment available to prepare a variety of meals. The choice of this equipment should depend on the object of the kitchen and the goals to be met. If the business cannot afford to buy the equipment, lease them to make the kitchen functional. Good kitchen equipment should give the desired results every time they are used. They should slot in seamlessly in the chef’s operations. The equipment should be energy-efficient and give consistent results. The following are the most important equipment the kitchen must have.

  1. Commercial Microwave

Commercial Microwaves may not be large, but they are fundamental in ensuring efficiency in the kitchen. They perform peripheral jobs which make a big difference when serving food. I like that commercial microwaves allow the chefs to heat, steam and serve food without wasting time. They add versatility to the kitchen and enhance cooking capabilities. In some cases, they act as backups for the ovens.


  1. Combi Oven

They combine multiple cooking equipment into a single unit. The unit can be used for grilling, baking, roasting and even steaming. It can also be used for deep or shallow frying. The modern oven is made to guarantee consistency in the result of any cooking process. It can simplify a complicated cooking procedure but give consistent results. Having this equipment in the kitchen is like having an additional chef.


  1. Commercial Fryer

The equipment is designed to help the chef create delicious dishes without straining. It is fun to use it to prepare meals. The fryers come in different sizes and power. Your budget should help you choose the best commercial fryer for your kitchen. Note that the new fryers come with oil filtration systems that help to extend the life of the oil. It helps you to save money.


  1. The Commercial Grill

It is used where an oven cannot be used to cook food. Commercial grills have become common in modern restaurants. It is used to prepare delicious meats. With this equipment, chefs can add flair to plates. It helps to transform an ordinary commercial kitchen into a high-tech one.  A good commercial grill will give your food a branded finish. Modern grills are versatile and can be used to prepare a variety of menu. They can be used to prepare meat, delicate fish and vegetables.


  1. Commercial Kitchen Freezers

Their main job is to remove heat from food and preserve it. It is true that the chef may not cook all the food bought. He may need to preserve and cook it the following day. Here, a commercial freezer comes in handy. It reduces the chances of throwing away food which is essential when cutting down on costs.

We have many more equipment commercial kitchens must have.  But with these 5 pieces of equipment, you can be sure to deliver on all the promises you make. Of course, the quality of the equipment will depend on your budget. Ensure that you only buy pieces of equipment that have been tested in commercial kitchens. If you can’t afford kitchen equipment at the moment, consider hiring them. For more information, go to


Play-Doh Kitchen Creations

*PR sample.

My twins are huge fans of Play-Doh. They enjoy making various shapes and just playing around with the various creations they make.  I like Play-Doh because apart from the fact that it keeps them very busy for hours, it is also great in helping the children develop the pencil grip muscles they need for writing. That fact alone encourages me to keep stocking up on more Play-Doh.

The lovely people at Hasbro kindly sent us a pack of Play-Doh Kitchen Creations, and I know the Kiddies are going to be very busy with it this half term. They were also sent us a box of edible, personalised doughnuts to celebrate Valentine’s Day, which we have been munching on.

This Play-Doh Kitchen Creations is for children who are 3 years old and over, due to small parts which could lead to a choking hazard.. Adult supervision is required when setting up the play set. It took me less than 2 minutes to set it all up. The Play-Doh should not be eaten. It contains Wheat. Non-Toxic.

I recommend the Play-Doh Kitchen Creations to parents of kids over 3 years who are into role play and crafts. If you have reception primary school children struggling with writing and holding the pencil properly, I would say you get some Play-Doh to help them develop the pencil grip.
