The 5 Restaurant Supplies Every Kitchen Needs

Whether you’re remodeling your restaurant kitchen or starting from scratch, the supplies you purchase matter. After all, from slicing to serving, the right restaurant supplies are what make efficient food service possible. But determining what your kitchen needs can be tricky. That’s why we’ve put together this list of five types of restaurant supplies every kitchen needs.

  1. Kitchen appliances

This one might seem like a no-brainer. But without the fridge or oven, your restaurant’s service would be sunk. Essential appliances for any kitchen include the following:

  • Range (gas or electric)
  • Oven
  • Fryer
  • Commercial fridge
  • Commercial freezer
  • Toaster
  • Kitchen sink (compliant with your area’s health code)
  1. Cookware

Once you’ve got your food prepped and ready, you’ll need cookware to get the job done. The type of cookware you need often depends on the type of cuisine you’ll be serving—which is why ReStockIt makes it easy with a section dedicated to cookware for all restaurants. Common selections include:

  • Bakeware
  • Fry pans
  • Pots
  • Pans
  • Woks
  • Saucepans
  1. Dining room supplies

Your food is ready, but what do you need before you serve? Dining room supplies. These essential food service items are what your customers will see most, and so it’s important to stock your kitchen with plenty of high-quality dining room supplies. We recommend:

  • Flatware
  • Table mats and decorations
  • Dishes
  • Serving platters
  • Condiment containers
  • Serving trays
  • Straws and skewers
  1. Bar equipment

Most kitchens serve alcohol in some capacity. For restaurants focused on efficient food and beverage preparation, low prices on bulk bar and restaurant supplies make a difference. Bulk purchases are especially useful for restaurants serving alcohol, as alcohol may be served in several areas of the restaurant at once (i.e. at a bar and in the kitchen). ReStockIt has all you need to stock up on:

  • Bottle openers
  • Mixing supplies
  • Strainers
  • Wine buckets
  • Bar towels
  1. Safety and storage items

Last but not least, safety and storage are seriously important behind the scenes at your restaurant. Besides educating yourself on health and safety standards in your area, it’s a good idea to stock up on the following items:

  • Fire extinguisher
  • Fire detectors
  • Carbon monoxide detectors
  • Fire blanket
  • Shelving units
  • Leftover boxes
  • Drawer organizers
