Whether you’re opening a new commercial kitchen or renovating your existing restaurant space, starting with a well-stocked list of commercial kitchen equipment is essential to starting on the right foot! Bakeries, pizzerias, cantinas, fast food chains, and any other type of restaurant style or setup may require vastly different pieces of professional kitchen equipment, but generally there are some basics that span the categories and are suited as an essential for most any commercial kitchen.
If pizza is a common item on your menu, chances are that you’ll be looking to invest in a specialty oven (if you haven’t already!). There are two main types of ovens typically used for pizzerias: conveyor ovens and deck ovens. While both styles have unique benefits, their differences set them apart from one another, forcing restaurants to choose between the two based on their individual needs. The choice between conveyor and deck oven depends on your restaurant, your needs, and what you’re willing to compromise.
