Get the best catering equipment hire for your kitchen. All of our electric equipment is PAT tested while our LPG equipment is regularly certified by a Gas Safe engineer

Choosing the right catering equipment hire can be tricky but we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you with our selection.

How do I know which kind of oven hire I need to choose?

Planning a kitchen for a big food service event can be a nerve-wracking process, particular when it comes to making decisions on what equipment to hire. Making the right decision on what oven hire to get is one of the most important as the wrong choice can prove costly and potentially even ruin the day.

At Expo Hire Yorkshire we have LPG and electric ovens for hire; knowing the right one to choose will depend on how they are being used. Electric ovens for hire are the right choice for indoor events and commercial kitchens where they can be used to bake, roast and grill food. However, these ovens draw large amounts of power and as such they’re not suitable for use at outdoor occasions. The power required by these ovens is just too much for exterior power supplies such as generators and extension leads, making them trip out easily while using them. LPG ovens like our six burner oven are the right choice for outdoors, as they use LPG bottles to fuel the powerful burners without a problem.

Quality of stock is always important to us and because of this we frequently replace our ovens with new ones. This is especially important with ovens which are often the workhorse of a kitchen and allows our customers to order from us with peace of mind.

What kind of fridge hire is there?

Fridges are one of those products that are popular regardless of the time of year. While many people associate fridges for hire with outdoor events or big occasions like weddings, we also work with commercial kitchens throughout Leeds, Sheffield and the surrounding areas. Our expert drivers deliver fridge hire across Yorkshire, helping to ensure that event organisers can quickly set up without worry.

We offer various kinds of fridges for hire at Expo Hire Yorkshire. Our upright display fridges are our standard fridge for rent, and are hired by everyone from retailers at exhibitions to event hosts offering chilled drinks. We also offer double door bottle coolers which fit under counters and are great for bars. For those looking for something a bit more specialist we have wine fridges, counter top fridges and chilled drink dispensers.

Commercial kitchens need plenty of space to not only store food but also to prepare it. Our counter fridges with integrated work space are designed for this, and can be wheeled quickly into position ready for use before a busy day. At the other end of the spectrum, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed if there are large amounts of food to be chilled.

Is there commercial barbecue hire available?

When the sun is blazing down and people are relaxing outside, a barbecue is an excellent way of serving food. Although a small garden party can make do with a small bbq set, we know for our commercial customers, proper barbecue hire is needed.

The barbecues for hire we have available have been chosen with large outdoor events in mind and can feed many guests without a hitch. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard, featuring two cooking areas which allows for event organisers to have separate vegetarian menus without worry. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get grilling.

What do I need to know about catering equipment hire?

Regardless of what catering equipment you hire, there are some important things to take into consideration before hiring.

The most important consideration is power. All of our electrical items use a standard three pin UK plug and have been PAT tested prior to dispatch. Please check the wattage required as more powerful products can trip extension leads and generators. As a rule, electric equipment is designed to be used indoors.

Our LPG equipment is all regularly certified by a Gas Safe Engineer as being safe to use, and certification is available on request. All of our equipment uses standard bayonet fittings and can be attached to 19 or 47kg gas bottles. We cannot do this for you on delivery – if you’re not sure how to do it please ask a Gas Safe engineer to connect it for you. LPG equipment is designed to be used outdoors in the main.
