A commercial stove top is the chef’s best friend and essential equipment on which your commercial kitchen can rely upon. It is available in a variety of models with multiple burners. You can configure a stove top with many different articles such as standard ovens, convection ovens, or open storage bases depending upon your needs and business requirements.
You can also expand your cooking options by adding a griddle or broiler to your commercial stove top. As it will provide you with extra cooking options within the same piece of equipment. But if your menu consists of complex dishes that require stock, then this equipment will not be enough to warm up your stock. You will have to make some room for a stock pot stove separately to prepare the stock.
What are the types of commercial stove tops?
If your restaurant is located in a location that has a direct gas line infrastructure, then gas becomes the most primary used fuel for the stove. Gas is affordable and easily accessible which makes it the prior choice for most of the urban people. The reason behind gas stoves being a little more affordable than the electric ones is the availability of gas.
Many restaurant owners prefer gas stoves over the electric stoves due to proper management and control. Another reason why the gas stove is popular in the rural area is that it can run on the propane and this makes it more helpful as there is already very little availability of gas-line infrastructure.
Electric commercial stove tops are best in areas where there are no gas-line available. They offer great support because of the design and also saves the cost of fuel. Electric stove tops provide you with expanded cooking activities, and the baking process is one of the best advantages of it. It also gives you an even or equal heating feature that makes it a preferred choice for the bakeries over the gas stove. This feature is useful as it gives you an even and consistent heating, which helps in baking the pies, cakes, bread, and other bakery items quickly & evenly.
Another type of stove that is a must-have in your commercial kitchen is a stock pot stove. This equipment is an essential piece as it will help you prepare stock in large quantities for your dishes.
The reason you need a stock pot stove is that it will provide you with large grates that are designed to handle large and heavy stock pots.
These stoves are also available in different variants. You have the option of a single burner or dual burner configured with multiple heat control valves and standing pilot lights, so this makes it easy to light and heat up.
So, a complete restaurant kitchen must consist of a stove top and a separate stock pot stove for a seamless operation.
