Investing in Quality...
Unlike ovens, commercial microwaves are rarely used in the restaurant business to actually cook food, but with the frequent need to reheat and serve dishes or pastries to customers, these microwaves require reliability. With quick output and ease of cleaning, commercial units offer not only stronger quality but accessibility as well—key benefits to a productive and efficient business.
Domestic microwaves work excellently for their intended purpose: serving one family a handful of times every day. For a small restaurant, they may then appear to be sufficient and significantly less expensive, but with regular reheating and proofing of multiple dishes every hour, their lifetime shrinks drastically. The money saved in the purchase will soon be spent on multiple replacements—a dangerous cycle for a business that operates to sell food quickly. The quality between these two forms of microwave also differs to an enormous degree.
Small or expansive, no business should settle for a substandard appliance when quality of product is a primary goal. Even concession stands can profit from a machine that heats more quickly and fully, increasing customer satisfaction and time expended in the preparation. Of course, this doesn’t mean that every restaurant and catering business should invest in top-of-the-line commercial microwaves. Like domestic units, commercial machines come in a tremendous range of features and power, allowing affordable appliances even to businesses without grand initial capital. The prices are a bit higher, but for an efficient, reliable, and more powerful microwave, a business should always invest commercially.
