Whilst wear and tear is unavoidable, it can be kept to a minimum if you just maintain it. You invested a lot of money into the equipment, so don’t throw it down the drain by not properly looking after it. When you buy the catering equipment, ensure you get a qualified technician to install it, and make sure to check his credentials as some will claim they know how to install certain appliances when they aren’t actually qualified to do the correct safety procedures required by the manufacturer. Even though you just splashed out a fortune on the catering equipment itself, you are actually protecting that investment if you spend a little bit more to just get it installed professionally. Plus you will be safe in the knowledge that the machinery is safe to use.
Regular cleaning of catering equipment is boring but essential I’m afraid. It should regularly be cleared out and cleaned to remove grease and stop bacteria from forming, as well as regularly cleaning the components such as the compressor. You will feel much better once you’ve cleaned your catering equipment and that will lead to a much nicer working environment for you and your staff.
