Professional catering equipment for a successful kitchen 

All HoReCa professionals are looking for increasingly high-performance devices, pushing professional catering equipment manufacturers to constantly innovate to offer new products that meet and anticipate their demands. We are talking specifically about devices with high strength and durability, which focus on hygiene and are also somewhat sustainable.

Preparation and cooking equipment

Preparation and cooking equipment is the beating heart of any professional kitchen. Below, we analyse some key elements:

  • Cutters, slicers and vegetable cutters: equipped with an intuitive interface, these devices are able to perform a wide range of tasks in the kitchen, including chopping, slicing, homogenising, optimising the processing of large and small quantities.
  • Ovens: whether gas, electric or steam ovens, they are a mainstay in professional kitchens. They offer even heat distribution and precise temperature control, essential conditions for preparing a wide range of dishes.
  • Hobs: available in a variety of formats and styles (induction and with integrated hood), hobs provide the flexibility to cook several dishes at once.
  • Dough mixers and pizza rollers: for baking and pastry operations, dough mixers and pizza rollers are indispensable. Designed for dough processing and with the ability to handle large quantities efficiently, these machines simplify the production process of bread, pizza, cakes and more.


Storage and cleaning equipment

Besides preparation and cooking, storage and cleaning of food and kitchen equipment are equally important. Here are some essentials:

  • Refrigerators and freezers: in recent years, trends in professional refrigerators and freezers have focused mainly on energy efficiency, advanced technology and adaptability to working environments. The emphasis is on adopting solutions that enable optimal food preservation while reducing the consumption of energy that is essential to preserve fresh ingredients and ensure food safety. These appliances must be able to guarantee optimal food preservation: maintaining the freshness and quality of products for longer periods while reducing waste are the main trends in the sector
  • Dishwashers: professional washing systems, conceived and designed with the objective of ensuring clean, hygienic and shiny results. The continual advancement of the washing performance and eco-efficiency of professional dishwashers and clothes washers requires component innovations and an intuitive user interface that offers maximum flexibility to operators. This is also achieved through the adoption of state-of-the-art digital technologies.


Light signalling for catering equipment

The different types of professional catering equipment mentioned above have a key element for safety, efficiency and design where required: light signalling. The light indicators for professional kitchen equipment are available in various shapes and sizes and are designed to provide clear and immediate visual warnings to kitchen staff. For example, light signals can indicate when an oven has reached the desired temperature, warn when a dish is ready to be served or signal an emergency or technical problem. These alerts not only improve operational efficiency by enabling staff to respond promptly to kitchen needs, but also contribute to safety by reducing the risk of human error and accidents. In addition, the versatility of light signalling can contribute, in particular environments such as professional open kitchens, to creating an aesthetically appealing effect that integrates well with the above-mentioned functionality: light plays harmonise with an operational communication signalling.

In conclusion, professional catering equipment is the backbone on which restaurant kitchens are based. Investing in quality light signalling for these devices is a smart way to improve operational efficiency, safety and design in a professional kitchen.
