February is Hot Breakfast Month, and it’s the perfect time to talk about the restaurant equipment that you’ll need for your breakfast joint.

The Tools You Need

Every restaurant will be different, and according to your menu, you may need more of one type than another. As your commercial appliance repair company in mid-Missouri, here are a few things we find to be the most popular and most used.

Breakfast Diner Countertop

This can include both crepe griddles and large countertop griddles. These are both excellent choices for your restaurant, and you may even need both. The countertop griddle can be used for eggs, pancakes, and bacon. The crepe griddle is becoming more popular as restaurants are offering more sophisticated breakfast menu options.

Coffee Equipment

It goes without saying that you will want to have commercial, industry-standard coffee equipment in your restaurant. From regular drip coffee to somewhat fancier machines like the espresso machine. Either way, no breakfast restaurant will be complete without a way to serve up coffee.

Countertop Hotplate

Sometimes the need to reheat something or simply boil water is going to present itself. A small hotplate could include a few burners, and many commercial models operate on liquid propane. If you want something portable, you can select an electric version.

Egg Stations

If you haven’t heard of egg stations, pay attention. They allow you to cook several eggs and once, and are perfect for over easy poaches, or even soft boiled. Some models even allow you to heat pre-cooked bacon on them. This can be a lifesaver in a busy breakfast kitchen.

Commercial Waffle Makers

There are two types of waffle makers, the standard waffle maker, and the Belgian-style waffle maker. A Belgian-style will produce large waffles that are deeper than your standard type. You will want to look for a stainless-steel construction with aluminum plating. They would all also have a nonstick finish for easy cleaning and a temperature control adjustment.

Enjoy a Hot Breakfast This Month!

This is the perfect month to sit down and enjoy a piping hot breakfast. As winter starts to wrap up, there will still be a few cold mornings where a steaming breakfast will be just what your customers are looking for. Make sure that your equipment is in good working order and ready to take the heat in the kitchen.
