Combining specialised pieces of wholesale kitchen equipment, such as a gas cooktop and oven range, is an excellent space saving and capacity increasing move for any sized commercial kitchen. The combination of items means a score of dishes can be prepared simultaneously by chefs and catering staff working with large and diverse menus. Gas cooktops and oven ranges can take your kitchen from breakfast, through lunch and straight to the dinner finish line with the range of cooking styles they are able to facilitate.
Gas cooktops feature manual temperature controls and heavy duty stainless steel tubing for heating pipes and pilots. This gives you complete control over the cooking process, with chefs able to precisely monitor and alter the heat of their appliance by noting the appearance of the flame. More red or orange coloured flames indicate a lower temperature, if they are too yellow there is not enough oxygen causing a temperature reduction. In contrast, a darker blue flame indicates an extremely high heat, often coming directly out of the holes installed in the burners that are allowing gas to come through. Chefs can alter these temperatures across multiple burners, creating opportunities to cook dishes at different heats but still all at the same time.
In comparison to the electric counterparts, gas stove tops can also be used to cook foods directly from the open flame heat source. This gives foods such as whole vegetables or skewered meats an excellently roasted effect. The oven range below can be used simultaneously for baking or roasting dishes or side accompaniments.
