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.
Granite is built to last and is one of the most durable natural stones available on the market. With sealing 1 to 2 times a year, granite will last over a century. Even if you sell your home after installing an industrial kitchen, and the trend doesn’t appeal to the new homeowners, the space can be transformed without touching the granite, making it an incredible long-term investment for a home. It could be argued that your countertops will last longer than any investment that you make in your home.
This kitchen style perfectly suits a darkly coloured sink. Our composite quartz sinks (pictured) are available in black as well as white, and are extremely durable. Heat resistant to over 200 degrees centigrade, they're also highly scratch-resistant. Or for a look that's a little bit different, take a look at our toughened glass sinks. The frame is made from black reinforced glass, while the sink is stainless steel - a stylish and unexpected combination.
Open shelves above worktops display more equipment, which may have been chosen for its stackability, while tall, deep shelves at lower levels are used as dry food cupboards for catering-size jars, cans and more weighty items. Many cooks prefer wide drawers so all the contents are visible from above, and can be easily removed and replaced. Razor-sharp knives - a cook's most precious equipment - are carefully protected in a knife rack or felt-lined drawer. One or even two dishwashers are essential rather than a luxury here, and they need to take a wide range of items: pots and pans as well as the standard dinner service.
