Restaurant Equipment Stands
Contrary to popular belief, restaurant equipment stands are not the same as kitchen work tables. Restaurant work tables are generally used to prepare food, so these types of tables are designed so that food can safely be in contact with the working surface. This is the reason why kitchen work tables need to be constructed of the best stainless steel that can easily be cleaned and disinfected. This is not to say, though, that an equipment stand cannot be made of stainless steel.
But because a kitchen storage table or kitchen storage stand doesn't require its surface to be in contact with the food itself (restaurant equipment stands are typically used to hold small commercial kitchen equipment like blenders and mixers and are therefore not designed to be a direct-food-preparation surface) other materials can be used to construct restaurant equipment stands, like aluminum for example. This can make restaurant equipment stands substantially less expensive (but somewhat less durable) than kitchen work tables, although there are also stainless steel equipment stand models available in the market today.
Still, the most common restaurant equipment stands are made of stainless steel and aluminum, because these two types of materials help make for a commercial kitchen storage system that is both rust-free and corrosion-resistant.
What to Consider When Purchasing a Kitchen Equipment Stand
When looking for a restaurant equipment stand for your food-service establishment, you might want to check out stands that meet the industry standard. There are also lot of restaurant equipment stands out there that are designed for simplicity but are also durable and heavy-duty at the same time. Also, most restaurant equipment stands come in several sizes, depending on what you require. A lot of restaurant equipment stands are designed to accommodate any type of small countertop kitchen equipment.
A storage kitchen table will, more often than not, will feature a flat surface that is ideal for various kitchen equipment to properly rest atop the stand that your food-service staff can operate easily. Another advantage of the flat surface of a kitchen table storage is that it makes for easier cleaning.
It is also typical of a kitchen equipment stand to feature an extra shelf on the lower part of the stand. This is perfect for storing other pieces of accessories or equipment such as extra pitchers or tubs for blenders and food processors.
