5 Mistakes to Avoid When Buying Commercial Kitchen Equipment
As a leading commercial kitchen equipment supplier, Brice Australia has a large network of customers that rely on quality instruments. We understand what our clients want and endeavour to source well-made, innovative and high-performance models that will enhance our client’s operations.
In a recent article titled “Top 5 Tips for Buying Commercial Kitchen Equipment in Australia” we shared important information for our buyers to consider. Not only is a piece of commercial kitchen equipment a practical tool in the food and hospitality industry, but an investment that assists organisations to prepare food effectively in a quality and timely manner.
In this blog, we share with you 5 key mistakes that you should avoid when buying commercial kitchen equipment:
1. Failure to Understand Your Requirements
Understanding your requirements is essential. You might also need to consult with your team or the person using the equipment. We stock many models, each serving a different purpose. Whether you are after high volume, manual or automatic operation or small-scale equipment, we have many options to choose from.
2. Lack of Research
Commercial kitchen equipment is an investment. Before making the purchase, ensure that you have assessed your needs, your goals and your budget. Then consider the products available. If you are unsure, feel free to contact us, and we would be delighted to discuss the features of the products that interest you.
3. Sole Focus on Cost
Many customers will opt for the cheaper product. Whilst all our products are high quality, different models do come at different prices. Each model has different features and will suit different customer requirements. It is important that you check the features of the product before considering the price.
4. Short-Term Assessment
Commercial kitchen equipment does last a long time, provided it is appropriately serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications. When undertaking your research, consider the future needs of your organisation. If you are considering an expansion, you might want to select a larger model that can cope with higher production volumes.
