Each commercial kitchen in the Pacific Northwest has its own unique challenges when it comes to foodservice equipment. For some, space limitations play a big role in the equipment operators can use. For others, the cost for heavy-duty equipment is an important factor. Fortunately for foodservice operations, countertop cooking equipment can solve both of these issues.
Front-of-house or back-of-house, with countertop cooking, your commercial kitchen can be anywhere you want it to be.
Benefits of Countertop Cooking
Ideal for Small Spaces
Countertop cooking is a big advantage for small kitchens. Space is a precious commodity in foodservice. With countertop equipment, operators of small kitchens don’t have to limit themselves to just a few large pieces of cooking appliances that fit within a floor plan. Some operations like convenience stores, may want the output of a commercial kitchen but don’t have the space to do so. Cooking with countertop equipment can provide perfectly charbroiled burgers, grilled hot dogs, or freshly pressed-paninis without back-of-house facilities.
With the ability to have more equipment without sacrificing lots of space, foodservice operations can expand or diversify their menu. Grow the number of appetizers or late-night snack options with a countertop fryer, or take advantage of the 24-hour breakfast trend with a countertop griddle. A variety of countertop cooking options can mean a more comprehensive menu.
Lightweight and portable, countertop cooking is a perfect way for restaurants or foodservice operations to adjust their menu, or their kitchens, on the fly. A sandwich grill that sees a heavy workload during the lunch rush, might not be used during dinner hours. Countertop appliances can be easily stored, making room for other equipment that experiences more use.
Countertop cooking equipment offers the power of heavy-duty equipment with the same, if not higher, efficiency. Electric cooking and warming is a quick yet powerful form of countertop equipment. Induction cooking, for example, is a fast, efficient, and consistent form of heating that can go toe-to-toe with a heavy-duty appliance. Gas charbroilers, griddles, and hot plates are designed for even heat distribution and make cleaning a breeze compared to heavier, bulky equipment.
