Eagle Restaurant Equipment: Beauty in Simplicity

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Let’s face it. Shiny and fancy gizmos full of profound electronic wizardry make just about everything easier. With just one touch of a button, a flip of a switch or sometimes with almost no effort at all, these instruments of culinary magic will cook, clean, brew and do just about anything you need them to do. It’s as if you almost want to have a deep conversation with your restaurant equipment. However, in many cases there are also elements of tools within your establishment that sit idly, often in a zen-like state, with no fancy widgets or captivating science but perform vital functions.

For instance, Eagle restaurant equipment may not seem elaborate or lavish. Yet, despite their lack of decorative circuitry or advanced technology, security carts, worktables and dish/compartment sinks play an equally important role as the miraculous eye-popping widgetry. The beauty of it all is in the simplicity, such as within the Eagle Security Cart CSC2460. It looks like a basic cart, but its heavy-gauge open-wire construction help make contents visible for inventory checks. With double doors and a quick action-locking device, items are safe and secure yet easily accessed when necessary. The Eagle Work Table T2424B-BS seems like an inanimate worktable. But, it’s strong, stable and comes with a 4 1/2” backsplash and an undershelf. When you’re prepping, mixing and putting together great food, this unadorned and uncomplicated work table comes to life. Although, there doesn’t seem to be anything novel about dish/compartment sinks, they help perform the vital job of providing a platform for cleaning those large pots, pans and other dishes.

Buying commercial kitchen equipment is almost like a yin yang of seemingly contrary forces that connect the whole of restaurant operations. Eagle restaurant equipment provides the sturdy and durable simplicity necessary to complement all that amazing technology.

Eagle Mop Sink: It’s Time to Swab the Decks

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

When it comes to restaurant equipment, things can get complicated. There are all sorts of bells and whistles designed to get the job done. In fact, all those fancy knobs and digital readouts can be the beauty of it all. Perhaps that complication explains why the food we serve is delicious and the drinks tasty. However, after all is said and done, when the patrons have left the building, we don’t necessarily want complicated. That’s why there is nothing overly fancy about the Eagle Mop Sink F1916. It just makes your work easier, without all the fanfare.

Of course, swabbing the deck (aka mopping the floor) usually isn’t everyone’s favorite pastime. But it’s important. Why not make it easier for yourself and your employees to clean the deck? The Eagle Mop sink is floor mounted, so you won’t have to lift a heavy mop bucket of dirty water to dump into sinks meant for something other than floor grime. Speaking of heavy buckets, how many times has that nasty water splashed out onto the edges of your hand sink, across the mirrors and back on to the floor? With the Eagle Mop Sink F1916, the “exclusive anti-splash double-offset “V” edge prevents spillage.” The sink is also built with 16, 18-gauge stainless steel, which means it looks nice, and it’s durable. A full skirt keeps things sanitary, and the 8” water level means you can likely just use the mop sink and not tote around a mop bucket everywhere.

So, while there is nothing truly complex or electrifying about this product, you can rest assured that a quality Mop Sink will make cleaning floors a bit less complicated. Of, course if you’d prefer to turn swabbing the deck into a bit of excitement, find a talking parrot, grab the old pirate hat and start mopping. And in the meantime, remember that at Short Order, we also have dishwashing sinks, hand sinks and other items that help make cleaning your restaurant a much better experience.

Eagle Group Hot Food Tables: Individual Controls Keep Food Just Right

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

What do you do if you want to warm three different items that need three different temperatures? You buy an Eagle Hot Food Table DHT 3-120. With it, you can warm your mashed potatoes to one temperature, your gravy to another and your cherry cobbler to a third. Is your mouth watering? Ours sure are.

The Eagle DHT 3-120 is just one of many excellent pieces of Eagle restaurant equipment here at Short Order, but it sure is a good one. In fact, it’s top of the line, with an open-base design made of heavy-gauge-type 430 stainless steel. Heating compartments are 8” deep, galvanized and insulated on all four sides and the bottom with 1” fiberglass or the equivalent.  This unit has three compartments — other Eagle hot food tables have more; although, what very well may be the best thing about this series of hot food tables is that there are individual controls for every compartment.

Each of the compartments of the Eagle Group DHT 3-120 Hot Food Table is fitted with 500-watt heating elements. A recessed control panel with those nifty individual infinite controls offers high and low temperature settings, while an indicator light remains on continuously when the control is in the “ON” position. The unit comes with a six-foot cord and plug which extends from the right side of the unit. A handy polycarbonate cutting board is located on the control side of the unit. This table is so cool, even though it is all about the heat.

Pans are sold separately so that you can get the type you need, whether stainless steel or aluminum. Other options from which you can choose include a bolted-in undershelf, overshelves, tray slides, a tray shelf, a dish shelf, a rolltop cover and a hardwood cutting board.

Never serve food at the wrong temperature to your customers again. Oh, and save us a plate, please.

Get your hands on the Eagle Hot Food Table DHT3-120 and other excellent pieces of commercial kitchen equipment for the lowest price at Short Order, where you’ll also receive free shipping. We’re proud to carry the Eagle Hot Food Table DHT3-120, in addition to a great selection of other high-quality hot food tables.


Eagle Group Hot Food Table: Ideal Food Temperatures

Friday, May 20th, 2011

The Eagle Hot Food Table WT4-240 unit, an electric water bath steam table, is under the spotlight today. After all, customers expect hot foods to be hot when they are served. Hot food served cold just loses its appeal and so do over-cooked, limp veggies. In order to keep meals at the ideal temperature, you have to have a great hot food table. And when it comes to keeping food at the ideal temperature Eagle Hot Food Tables from Short Order are an excellent choice.

The WT4-240 is top of the line with an open base design made of heavy gauge type 430 stainless steel. The top is removable for cleaning, and all openings accommodate 12” x 20” steam table pans. This particular unit has four steam pans and contains a water pan beneath the steam pans welded with 16/304 stainless steel and a recessed well that houses the copper-sheathed immersion 3000-5000 watt heater.

The thermostat temperature control has an automatic low water cutoff with a built-in manual reset button. And, there is a polycarbonate 8” wide cutting board and stainless steel shelf attached. Other models are mobile with sturdy wheels. There is even an undershelf of galvanized steel. Options and accessories include overshelves, tray slides/shelf, hardwood cutting board, an AutoFill © automatic water fill system and even a rolltop cover.

Hot food tables from Eagle Group are an outstanding way to avoid cold or over-cooked food service problems and keep your patrons happy.  We are very proud of our hot food tables, but that’s not the only thing we at Short Order happen to have in our inventory, and it’s certainly not the only thing that we’re proud to offer.  We also have a range of other restaurant equipment products perfect for warming, cooling, cooking, storing, prepping, serving and more.  Check out our full selection of commercial kitchen-enabling wonderworks today!
