As a catering company, one of the key elements to success is serving up amazing food for your customers, and to do this you need the right equipment. The quality of your menu is a reflection of your business and what your reputation relies upon. Therefore, by purchasing top of the line equipment for your business, you can secure your position at the top of the industry.
Whether you’re a new business just starting out, or an already well-established catering entity looking to enhance your output, AGC Catering Equipment & Hospitality Supplies can guide you through the process of setting up the equipment that will see your business thrive. To make this easier, we have begun the process for you by putting together a list of some of the products we believe to be essential in seeing your business succeed.
Grill and toasters
A staple of any catering business are their grills and toasters that grill and flat press foods with ease and convenience. We recommend the Roband Grill Stations GSA810S, GSA810ST and the GMX810. If you are looking to grill large quantities of food in a timely manner, the GSA model series is the best option, as these versatile units are perfect for rapidly toasting sandwiches, paninis and focaccias, as well as producing beautifully seared and grilled tender meat, poultry and fish. With their smooth, high pressure die-cast aluminium plates, these grills cook all food rapidly with even colouration. By comparison, the GMX series toaster offer simplicity and ease in a more conventionally designed grill. With optimal functionality considered in its design, this grill can be used for a variety of foods preparation, from open melts to toasted sandwiches to grilled foods.
Another innovative product offered by the Roband collection is the Roband DM21B Milkshake Maker, which is designed to make the perfect thickshakes and milkshakes with every use. This expertly crafted maker uses a Saturn Beater to produce extra fluffy shakes using minimal ingredients and are an absolute must-have piece of equipment for any cafe or fast food outlet.
Any food preparation service, whether they be a cafe, restaurant or catering company, need to have a fryer, and therefore we could not put together this list without providing information on the top fryers currently available on the market. For optimal frying, we recommend the Single (FFA0001) and Double (FFA0002) Deep-Pan Fryers by Anvil. The two basket option allow for dual order cooking with ease.
As not all foods are prepared for immediate consumption, Bain Maries are a great way to keep food warm over long periods of time, and are consistently used by many companies in the hospitality industry. The experts at Roband offer a great range of counter top Bain Maries ideal for businesses not wanting to use up too much space, such as the BM2, which has been designed to keep food at a constant temperature without taking up too much space in your commercial kitchen.
Best suitable for businesses who create sauces and purees, as well as juices and shakes, blenders are a useful item to own. We recommend the Hamilton Beach Tempest Food Blender, which includes various speed controls for products that may need slower or faster blending, such as mayonnaise, and a unique one touch chopping function for chopping solid ingredients.
Great for mixing large quantities of ingredients together in an efficient manner, mixers can be a great addition to any catering kitchen. Standard commercial mixers can come in a variety of different styles and designs to suit your kitchen’s needs, so it can become disorientating in knowing what to look for. We recommend the Mecnosud Dough Mixer SMM0044 spiral mixer as it is one of the highest quality pieces of equipment currently on the market. With it’s stainless steel shaft, bowl and hook and spiral speed of 100rpm,the Mecnosud dough mixer represents the ideal machine for pizza-restaurant, confectioners, bakeries and domestic use.
Ovens are arguably the most important product in any kitchen. That’s why we’ve put extra thought into this one, recommending the Anvil COA1004 Convection Oven. This model is a compact unit offering four shelves as standard, with a dual fan system for even heat distribution.
For many catering companies, timely food preparation is of the essence. This is where meat slicers come in handy. To meet your meat slicing needs we recommend Boston Globus 250 and 300 Meat Slicers. What separates these two products is the width of the blade used, so for finer slices, the 250mm slicer is appropriate, and the 300 for larger slicing.
Similarly, if you’re finding that meat slicing is weighing down on your food preparation time, you may also find this with your vegetable preparation. To prep, slice and dice vegetables more efficiently, food processors can be a viable option. We recommend the Hallde RG100 Food Processor to aid your kitchen time constraints. The RG100 features an ergonomic leaning design that makes using the machine very easy and simple.
For those new to the industry, a blixer combines the features of two well-known appliances: the cutter and the blender. Blixers are quick, efficient, simple to use and robust. Whilst there are numerous blixer choices on the market, we recommend the Robot Coupe Blixer 3. With their large capacity, leak proof lid and built in scraper, these models make it simple to prepare all types of mixed and liquidized food. Not only does this Blixer guarantee a perfectly finished-end product that contains all the goodness and flavour of the pre-liquidized food, it also prioritises safety with a device fitted to the lid to prevent access to moving blades and an integral motor braking device to ensure operator safety. To insure compliance with the strictest hygiene standards, any parts which come into contact with food can be easily removed and cleaned.
