Browse our wide range of commercial catering equipment 

Commercial catering equipment is the term for appliances or equipment that is used in the foodservice industry. Professional kitchen equipment has to be sturdy, robust and durable as it has to cope in busy, industrial kitchens and food prep areas where a domestic appliance would simply wear out. The commercial catering equipment has to be reliable because otherwise it will impact the quality of the food that your restaurant, café or canteen produces, bringing it to a halt if it breaks down completely.

We work with commercial kitchen suppliers like Lincat, Maidaid, Retigo, Blue Seal, Foster, Sammic, Rational, Hoshizaki, Tournus, Parry, EAIS, Mechline and Metcalfe. We are proud to supply quality professional kitchen equipment by working with reliable and excellent manufacturers to ensure our customers have efficient and high-class equipment.

The wide range of high quality and efficient products that Abraxas can supply and install includes:

Fridges & freezers

Under counter or full height fridges and freezers are an essential part of kitchen equipment to keep raw and cooked foods to the right temperatures for food safety and hygiene. A robust and easy to clean appliance is a necessity to your business.

Cooking ranges & combination ovens

Cooking ranges, usually a stove top with oven units underneath, are usually electric or gas fired and another essential in a commercial kitchen. Combination ovens are appliances that use steam or hot air convection, or a combination of both, as an alternative cooking method to gas or electric hob.

Fryers and pasta cookers

Commercial fryers and pasta cookers can cook large volumes and multiple batches of food. They can be either single or dual units and countertop or freestanding. We supply fryers with or without built-in filtration, however the built-in filtration options help to extend the lifespan of valuable cooking oil.

Dishwashers, glasswashers & utensil washers

Commercial dishwashers are a means of enabling the cleaning of a large quantity of dirty dishes, pots and pans in minutes. The machine enables cleaning for every surface as they heat up to 85 degrees – ensuring sanitisation. The glasswasher is invaluable for establishments which serve drinks, providing a unique cleaning operation for drinkware.

Stainless steel tabling & bespoke fabrication

Stainless steel tabling is a staple piece of equipment in every commercial kitchen. Used for storage, as well as food preparation or cleaning stations, these units are available in a variety of sizes or bespoke to suit all styles of kitchen. They are durable and easy to keep clean and hygienic.

Cold rooms and freezer rooms

Cold rooms, or chillers, and freezer rooms are large scale, walk-in units which are constructed with insulated panels to ensure a sealed, temperature-controlled space for storing fresh or cooked foods. This professional kitchen equipment units are necessary for restaurants where wider menu options require storage of greater quantities of food.

Servery counters

Servery counters are units that enable the serving of food to a large number of people quickly and efficiently. They can be for hot or cold food depending on the kitchen’s requirements and a range of sizes depending on the number of covers to be served.

Vegetable preparation units

These are especially used for preparing large quantities of fruit, salad and vegetable stuffs and offer options for peeling, chopping, dicing, shredding, or pulping. They are often tabletop or freestanding appliances depending on the quantity of preparation required.

Ventilation & Extraction systems

Comprised of the extraction fan, canopy and ducting, these are not only essential, but a legal requirement. The fan is located in the canopy above any cooking equipment that will create odours, steam, or fumes to extract them along the ducting to the outside and transfer clean air back into the kitchen.

Coffee machines

These can range from espresso machines, bean to cup or bulk brew options. The type of machine that is needed will depend on the type of catering outfit and needs of the customers being served.
