Stainless Steel French Restaurant Equipment – What to Look for?

French cuisine is often regarded as one of the most prestigious in the world. From the vibrant flavors, intriguing ingredients & striking visuals, it’s not hard to see why. With a rich history & undeniable influence, it’s safe to say that French restaurants are here to stay. However, just like with any restaurant, certain stainless steel equipment is needed to maintain your efficiency. What should be added in your lineup?

In this article, we’ll give you a checklist of 4 stainless steel products that should be considered for your French restaurant. We’ll also offer up some IMC products as examples. Let’s start with #1.

 Equipment Stands

French cuisine involves the use of much smaller sized, exclusive equipment such as crepe makers & sous vide circulators. You will need a wider & shorter stand to use these items comfortably. Equipment stands are just the right piece of equipment to do the job.

IMC offers Models #EST & #ESTP. EST is a stainless steel equipment stand constructed of rugged 14-gauge type 300 series stainless steel. Standard height is 24″, so operating machinery should be a breeze. Model #ESTP is unique equipment stand designed to capture any scrap or crumbs in a removable tray – useful for any foods involving dough or flour. A brush is included with the stand for easy clean up. Here’s a closer look:

  Mixer Tables

French baking is a certified art. So it stands to say that French desserts & pastries are some of the most popular in the world. Macarons, croissants, quiche, éclairs & crème brûlée are well-known examples. In order to bake all of these to perfection, you’ll need the best blenders, mixers & food processors to accomplish the task. Mixer tables make a suitable home for all of this equipment.
