How To Prolong the Machine Life Of Commercial Kitchen Equipment

Proper maintenance of commercial kitchen equipment will help you to extend the longevity of your machines. Commercial kitchens require frequent and regular cleaning and maintenance, so it is important that you follow a few basic steps to keep your ovens, refrigerators, chillers and dish washing machines in top working condition.

For ovens:

  • Clean up spills as soon as possible; food residue can cause oil build-up and damage the heating elements.
  • Use a mild detergent on the exterior surfaces of your oven after every use, or at least once a week.
  • Make sure the door seals are in good condition by checking for cracks or tears and replacing them if necessary.
  • 3 monthly services are recommended

For refrigerators & chillers:

  • Ensure that the temperature is set correctly and the condenser is not blocked by dust or debris.
  • Clean the interior regularly with a mild detergent to ensure that any food residue doesn’t cause mold or bacteria growth.
  • Inspect all seals, gaskets and other components for wear and tear and replace them as needed.

For dishwashers:

  • Remove Rinse and wash arms daily to clean and unblock when necessary.
  • Be sure to pre-rinse all dishes before they enter the machine
  • Be sure to drain your dishwasher every day after use.
  • 3 monthly services are recommended

By taking these steps, you can extend the life of your commercial kitchen equipment and ensure it is operating efficiently and safely. You’ll also reduce downtime due to maintenance or repair and give you a better return on investment in the long run.
