Thursday, April 16th, 2015

ShortOrder_Work-TableAre you looking to add more area for prep to your commercial kitchen? If your restaurant is lacking counter space, a stainless steel work table could be the solution to your space problems. Before purchasing a table, ask these 4 questions to make the buying process easier and more efficient:

What size and shape?

The first things to determine when looking for a stainless steel work table are the size and shape suitable for your needs and restaurant kitchen space. The standard widths available are 24, 30, and 36 inches—while standard lengths range from 20 to 120 inches. Make sure to measure the area you’re looking to place the table (or tables) in before ordering. (more…)

Work Tables

Work tables, as we’ve written elsewhere on our fine site, are the fundamental beginning point of employee productivity in any commercial kitchen.  Your workspace may be stocked floor to ceiling with high-end restaurant equipment from all manner of top manufacturers, but if you lack the space to actually do the prep work that is the blood and guts of any restaurant worth its salt, your enterprise will be doomed from the outset.  As fond as we are of them, no number of Vulcan ranges or Hobart slicers will bail you out from a work table shortage.

And when we talk work tables, we hold one manufacturer in higher regard, to a higher standard, than all others: Eagle work tables.  They’re industry leaders, and have earned the coveted five-star editor’s choice designation by our editors here at Short Order.  We also carry other quality manufacturers, such as those from BK Resources (which also makes excellent equipment stands) and Advance Tabco (a trusted forger of kitchen sinks), neither of which make products that are anything to sniff at.

Eagle work tables come in a wide variety of dimensions, which is perfect for restaurants for all sizes.  Not only do smaller concerns benefit from more modest tables, but even in large kitchens, space is at a premium, so it never hurts to have a small table squeezed in a tight nook when it makes sense.

These sizes run from a compact 24″ x 24″ model (the Eagle Work Table T2424B, the perfect size for a small spot next to a sink) to a roomy 36″ x 96″ product (the Eagle Work Table T3096B, great for multiple people doing prep work at the same time, or for conveyor belt-like assembly).  No matter what you decide to buy, you’ll know that it’s a quality piece of equipment because it’s manufactured by Eagle, and that it will come to you at the lowest price, guaranteed, because you bought it from us at Short Order.
