Commercial kitchen appliances streamline cooking, cleaning and other restaurant procedures in low- and high-volume operations. Find the right equipment to suit your restaurant’s needs, including large appliances like ovens and smaller items such as food processors.
Choose shelving for storing supplies and nonperishable foods to keep everything organized and easy to find. You may also need prep carts on wheels for added flexibility in your food preparation areas.
Countertop Steam Table
The right steam table will help your restaurant, cafeteria, or buffet line keep food at safe hot food-holding temperatures for extended periods of time. This can greatly increase your operation’s efficiency, allowing you to serve more meals with less waste and shorter service times.
The best countertop steam tables will feature adjustable temperature control to let you choose your ideal setting, while also maintaining a consistent heat level throughout the entire food pan. They should be constructed from durable stainless steel for sturdiness and easy clean up. They will typically hold full size food pans and feature interchangeable compartments to accommodate different food options.
These units are typically powered by either electric or gas heating, with the main difference being that gas models require a connection to a gas line. Generally speaking, electric steam tables are more popular because they are easy to install and operate, especially in smaller settings where access to gas may be limited.
Some commercial steam tables will have open wells that allow you to use moist heating with or without water (spillage pans sold separately). This can be a great asset when you are serving up items like crispy fried foods, which tend to lose their texture or flavor when subjected to dry heat.
Countertop Coffee Urn

Some of these appliances can keep brewed coffee hot for hours, which makes them ideal for large catering events and meetings. They’re also highly durable, with many models boasting stainless steel construction that resists rust and corrosion.
When cleaning this type of equipment, you should drain it completely and scrub the basin with a sponge or bottle brush, then rinse it with warm water. You should also be sure to thoroughly clean the dispensing spigot, especially its tip, with warm soapy water or specialty urn cleaner to prevent germ transmission.
