Commercial Cooking Equipment Available at Restaurant Superstore
A cornerstone in any foodservice establishment is a commercial oven and commercial gas range. Whether you're preparing vegetables, pasta, soup, or sauce, every kitchen needs an oven and range. Gator Chef offers a great selection of commercial ovens and commercial gas ranges to meet your kitchen’s needs.
At Gator Chef we understand that no two kitchens are alike, which is why we offer ovens and ranges designed for different types of kitchens cooking various volumes of food. For example, if your kitchen sees a high volume of work and needs a heavy duty range, we offer items such as a 10 burner range with a double standard oven. Conversely, if your kitchen sees a smaller workload, we offer 4 burner ranges as well. This way, whether you need an oven and range, an oven with a griddle, or a combination of both, we have a wide selection of commercial ovens and gas ranges to help meet your demand and budget.
Flip pancakes, cook steak, and more at your diner, restaurant, or cafe with a commercial countertop griddle. These types of griddles are used on a countertop so they save space while giving your cooks ample space to work. At Gator Chef we offer a wide variety of commercial countertop griddles including chrome electric, chrome gas, and thermostatic. The griddles we offer come in various sizes from 12-48 inches, with either an electric or gas fuel source. We also provide various models that include splash guards and grease collection pans.
Give your customers the best burgers, chicken, or steak with a commercial charbroiler from Gator Chef. We offer a wide variety of charbroilers, including both countertop and stand-alone charbroilers. In the food service industry, space is often hard to come by; countertop charbroilers avoid taking up extra floor space while still allowing for ample cooking room. Conversely, stand-alone charbroilers give plenty of cooking space with storage and movability options, while not taking up precious countertop space. Our selection of charbroilers includes a plethora of sizes ranging from 12 inches all the way up to 72 inches to help meet the demands of your kitchen. We also provide various styles of charbroilers including both gas and electric, as well as lava rock and radiant.
Fry up crispy chicken fingers and delicious onion rings all day long with the right commercial deep fryer. Commercial fryers are in every kitchen ranging from fast food restaurants to steak houses to pizza restaurants and anything in-between. Being such a common piece of equipment, we offer several different styles with various capacities.
Whether your kitchen needs a fryer for lighter work, or something more heavy duty, we have you covered. We provide fryers with capacities ranging from just 15 pounds all the way up to 100 pounds, with six different pot types to choose from, with either electric or gas fuel sources. In addition, choose from countertop or floor models depending on your needs and space. We carry a wide variety of models, including ventless fryers for those kitchens that may not have room under their hood. Check out our wide selection to find the right deep fryer and accessories to best suit your needs.
