A Wide Range of Commercial Ranges

Thursday, February 12th, 2009

Buying commercial ranges for your kitchen sounds like a simple thing to do… until you start looking! There are a number of things to consider when making your purchase, besides just size and how it looks.

Heavy Duty Ranges

One of the major decisions is heavy duty vs. restaurant duty ranges — should you pay the extra money to have a heavier duty range? Heavy duty ranges like the Vulcan Range GH6 have a shorter cooking time along with a higher energy output, which can mean higher energy costs. Typically, you’ll find heavy duty ranges in hotels, hospitals, institutions, some high volume restaurants and schools.

Configuring Your Ranges

Configuring your ranges is simple, as there are several open burners and griddle tops available. Plus, you can add convection ovens to the standard oven base.

Vulcan Ranges has an amazing selection of Vulcan ranges. From heavy duty to restaurant duty, there’s a Vulcan range suitable for your restaurant. Vulcan ranges are a big name in commercial ranges thanks to their dependability, durability and proven performance.

Other Considerations When Buying Commercial Ranges

When you’re buying commercial ranges, there are a few other considerations, like casters. Casters are great for easy clean up and service. If you’re getting a gas commercial range, don’t forget to include a new AGA commercial gas flex hose. Also, if you’ll be using your new commercial range above an elevation of 2000 feet, specify that when you’re ordering so that the gas valves can be adjusted to account for it.
