Contact a Leasing Company - A restaurant equipment leasing company will ensure that you get adequate supplies, equipment and free maintenance on your new kitchen equipment, all for a monthly, quarterly, or yearly rate. This rate will be cheaper in the short run than buying your own equipment but over time you could probably have saved money by buying your own equipment. On the other hand buying your own equipment will not get you new kit every couple of years so leasing is still your best bet if you are just starting out. Be sure to find out from the company all the terms and conditions involved, such as what happens if you need to end the contract early - just in case the kitchen turns out to not be as busy as expected! You can find out off local businesses what leasing companies they use - and this is a great way to quickly find out the best companies.
Most professional cooks prefer to have access to both gas and electricity for cooking. They need bigger ovens to accommodate larger trays and baking sheets and often their stovetops have integrated charcoal barbecues, grills and griddles. Cooking on a large scale generates a huge amount of heat so an extractor hood that more than covers the gas or electric rings reduces heat and steam to maintain a pleasant working atmosphere.
