Food preparation equipment is a kitchen item used to manufacture, process, or prepare food and includes blenders, juicers, food scales, food Mills, food vacuum sealers, meat slicers and more. Food preparation equipment can be categorized as either stationary or portable. Stationary food preparation equipment is fixed in place and cannot be moved. Portable food preparation equipment is designed to be moved from place to place. Food prep equipment is normally made from stainless steel, heavy-duty plastics, cast iron or enameled steel. While each piece of equipment has its unique purpose in the commercial kitchen, all share a few features that make using them easier and safer. These features include non-slip grips or handles, easy-to-read controls, and a locking mechanism to prevent accidental start-up.
