When you own a restaurant, bar, deli, catering service or any other type of food service business, you need kitchen supplies. While some items are absolutely necessary and fairly universal no matter what type of dishes you serve, other items are more specialty pieces.
Kohn-Megibow Company has put together this list of eight kitchen supplies that every food service business will want to consider:
Having proper cookware will ensure that your food tastes how it’s intended to. KMC has a variety of cookware, including pots, pans, pressure cookers, skillets and all the essentials for the dishes you plan to serve.
2. Knives and Cooking Utensils
Good chefs need good knives, spatulas, spoons, graters, tongs and various other vital utensils in the kitchen to create excellent recipes.
3. Cold Storage
Every restaurant needs ample cold storage space for refrigerated and frozen supplies. From small units to walk-in freezers, you want to know your options and choose what’s best for your kitchen needs.
Ranges, grills, ovens, deep fryers, dishwashers—make sure your kitchen is stocked with the major appliances that your staff will need to efficiently prepare all the dishes on your menu.
5. Food Preparation Equipment
From mixers and blenders to commercial-grade choppers, cutting boards and graters, every good kitchen will have plenty of quality food preparation equipment.
6. Food Storage Containers
Nice food storage containers will keep your ingredients fresh and they will also help keep your kitchen more organized.
7. Baking Supplies
If you are serving any baked desserts or bread, you will need the appropriate baking supplies such as sifters, muffin tins, cookie sheets, cake pans and measuring cups.
8. Safety & Cleaning
Your kitchen staff needs to stay safe and your kitchen must meet health code standards. Janitorial supplies, hand sinks, floor mats, gloves, and safety signage are absolute must-haves for any commercial kitchen.
