Kitchen Must Haves

If you’re looking to open your own restaurant, there are must have items for your kitchen that you don’t want to forget. Without these items, your kitchen won’t be able to function properly. Your restaurant can have the perfect location, a great marketing plan, and a great team, but without the items on the checklist below, you won’t be able to deliver the best experience to your customers.

Refrigerators and Freezers

While having these units in your restaurant kitchen might seem obvious, you want to have the right types that fit the needs of your restaurant. Look back at our previous blogs for a more in depth explanation on refrigerators and freezers, but you need to research and decide if your restaurant demands a reach in or walk in refrigerator/freezer (whichever fits your needs!).


If you’re going to be preparing tons of meat, cheese, or other items that need to be sliced with precision, you should purchase a slicer. Infrequent slicing can be done manually, but if you’re looking for precision, an electric slicer is the way to go! Electric slicers save you time and labor.

Safety Equipment

Housing proper safety equipment in your kitchen might fall on the backburner (no pun intended), but it’s extremely important! Check with the local safety guidelines before you purchase any safety equipment because you don’t want to waste your money on equipment that isn’t within regulation. Fire extinguishers are one of the most important pieces of equipment to have!

Some of the items on the checklist above might be obvious, but sometimes the stress, time, and labor that go into running a business will leave you forgetting about small details.
