Boiler Tops

The decision on which hob top to buy and use for your catering or restaurant business isn’t an easy one. You need to consider a number of factors, particularly how large it needs to be and how many burners are appropriate for your business.

You should look at the number of covers you are hoping to cook for each day and roughly consider what your menu will be. If you need to use several pots and pans at the same time, investing in a larger boiler top is prudent.

Boiler tops come in several different sizes and configurations. You can buy a standard two-burner or a six-plate gas boiling top. You also need to consider the configuration you need because different models use varying burner sizes.

Whether you choose a gas hob or an electric hob will also affect the style of cooking you use. Gas hobs offers instant heat and allow you to monitor the temperature visually, which is not possible with electric hobs. Gas hobs are also slightly cheaper than electric ones. Electric hobs, on the other hand, are easier to keep clean, shaving time off of the cleaning process.

Whilst your decision might be based largely on previous experience, you need to consider whether your new business has the same demands as the old one and if sticking with what is familiar is really right for your current situation.
