Setting Up A Commercial Kitchen

For many of us who have little or no experience in F&B business, setting up a commercial kitchen for a cafe or restaurant can be a daunting task. Here, we highlight some very basic but important considerations to make when selecting food equipment.

1) Find out if the space you rented/purchased is fitted with 3-Phase or Single-Phased Electrical Supply.

It is important to know if the place you rented or purchased for your F&B business has 3-Phase power supply. Some of our customers come to us asking for large equipment, e.g. large capacity deep fryers or deck ovens, for their new establishments, without knowing if their place is fitted with 3-Phase power supply. Equipment such as large deck ovens used by bakeries, combi ovens used by restaurants and large capacity deep fryers seen in fast food establishments require 3-Phase power supply to work. Installing the 3-Phase power supply to a property will set you back quite a bit in set-up costs. Therefore, it is always advisable to find out the electrical requirements from your kitchen equipment supplier before working out the budget required for the set up.

2) Estimate the capacity you need for food equipment.

Oven-baked Cheesecake

I am not a fan of cheesecake but baked it anyway! I have never tried making cheesecakes before but know that there are many non-bake cheesecake recipes. Still, I insisted on trying one that requires baking - just so it feels more in shouldn't all cakes be baked??

Without a springform pan, I had to make do with an aluminium pie plate leftover from my apple tart baking session (which turned out delicious). To be fair, I love apple pies/tarts/strudles and dislike cheesecakes in general, even the famous ones.
