Cooking Equipment

Cooking Equipment provides features and benefits of all types of ovens, grills and griddles, cooktops, pots and pans, ranges, rotisseries, steamers and fryers.

Spec Check: Microwaves

Commercial microwaves can help foodservice operators increase speed of service and lower a facility's overhead due to the unit's low energy use. For operators that need to conserve space, particularly those with smaller footprints, microwaves can be a desirable piece of foodservice equipment.

Spec Check: Deck Ovens

Deck ovens and pizza operations go hand in hand. Although these ovens have no motor and create natural convection using baffle systems, the units typically offer higher Btu than convection ovens. This provides unique browning for preparing a wide range of menu items, such as chicken, fish, casseroles and, more often than not, pizza.

Dual Technology Ovens: An Overview

Dual technology ovens use multiple energies that include impingement heating, high-speed vectored air or a combination of impingement, microwave and radiant heating. This process provides added speed, flexibility and consistency.

Dual Technology Oven Applications

Dual technology ovens are generally pre-programmed, which makes it easier to achieve desired food temperatures when cooking consistent items. Here are some of the most common uses for this equipment.

How to Maintain a Dual Technology Oven

Dual technology oven maintenance is not complicated. Still, regular cleaning and planned maintenance can increase the service life of these units.

Energy Efficiency and Dual Technology Ovens

Dual Technology Ovens

From fine dining and quick-service restaurants to pizzerias and institutional operations, dual technology ovens can provide added menu flexibility, increase speed of service and deliver consistent results when specified properly.

Specifying an Energy-Efficient Steamer

Cooking with steam offers foodservice operators many benefits. For example, steam has six times the energy as boiling water and it transfers that energy instantaneously. And burning and scorching tends not to be an issue because steam never gets hot enough to caramelize the product. In addition, it is possible to cook multiple menu items in a steamer because steam does not transfer food flavors, it only enhances them.

CFESA's Service Tips for Griddles

The Commercial Food Equipment Service Association offers a series of technical tips that allow foodservice operators to troubleshoot and repair simple problems involving their gas, electric, refrigeration, and steam equipment. This article takes a look at a few steps to take to identify potential service issues with a griddle.

Commercial Ranges: An Overview

Multi-purpose pieces of equipment, ranges are a staple in most foodservice operations. Here are details on the different types of units, including the available options.

How to Know When to Replace a Range

When maintained properly, commercial ranges have a service life of 10 years or more. Here are five signs that it might be time to replace a range.
