A commercial kitchen in a good business would typically serve a lot more people than your kitchen at home – so it requires a fair amount more care and maintenance than a domestic kitchen. The better care you take, the longer it will be able to serve you. 

Here are some ways you can keep the maintenance of your commercial catering equipment Chester in check without spending too much time on it, neglecting other aspects of your business:


This is the easiest way to keep your equipment in good nick – keeping it clean also making cleaning it next time an easier job! 

Keeping your equipment clean also makes it compliant with health and safety regulations, minimises damage and the build-up of grease, fat and grime. 


  • Inspect your commercial catering equipment for faults before and after usage. 

Before you start your busy working day, take time to carry out a quick inspection of your equipment. If you find anything out of the ordinary, you can fix it before service. This not only saves you downtime but prevents further damage from faults.   

If you conduct another inspection at the end of your day, you’ll be less likely to find any nasty surprises in the morning. 


  • Use the correct tools and products for cleaning. 

Some products and tools work best for different pieces of equipment. You may require a small brush to get into the nooks and crannies of a griddle, but this wouldn’t be necessary for a fryer lid. 

If the equipment deals with grease, you’ll need something different to what you would use for the coffee machine – do your research. 


  • Arrange for a reservicing of your equipment routinely. 

Every so often, it’s best to call a professional in to take a look at your equipment. They’ll be able to keep it working to its maximum potential. Your oven might be taking a while to hit temperature, or your griddle may be making a worrying noise – time to get it sorted. 

Servicing and maintenance ensure that our equipment is safe to use, so your staff can be at ease, and service should run smoothly. 



Really, for the best maintenance, you want to be paying attention to the smaller details. It might seem like a lot of effort, but once you have a routine then everything should be relatively easy. If you take care of your equipment, then it should take care of you too.
