Whirlpool - WCG51US0DS - The backbone of any home-based food venture is going to be the cooktop. No matter the dish, it's going to be necessary to sear, sauté, fry, melt, or perform countless other prep measures that go into cooking. This Whirlpool cooktop is guaranteed to accomplish whatever is required. In business for over a century, Whirlpool is one of the most trusted brands in kitchen appliances. Its stalwart reputation has made its name synonymous with dependability and this cooktop is no exception. Four burners allow the cook to have several pots and pans going at once. The overall robust construction ensures dependability when business inevitably heats up.

SpeedHeat Burner

SpeedHeat Burner - The cooktop delivers powerful heat when needed. The rear left burner sports Whirlpool's exclusive SpeedHeat system. It can put out up to 15000 BTUs. This makes for quick boils and even quicker sears.

Whirlpool Grates

Cast-Iron Burner Grates - The grates on this cooktop are cast-iron with a matte finish. They are laid out continuously. The dexterous cook can slide pots and pans closer or further away from the heat for direct or indirect cooking. They can even slide between burners with a simple flick of the wrist.

Dishwasher-Safe Accessories

Dishwasher-Safe Accessories - A working kitchen is bound to make daily messes. Since time is a business's most valuable commodity, it's fortunate it doesn't have to be wasted scrubbing grates and knobs. This cooktop's accessories are completely dishwasher safe.

GE Monogram Series 30" Wall Oven

GE - ZET1SHSS - When overseeing the production of a working kitchen, the main philosophy to which one must adhere is "mise en place." It's a French phrase meaning, "everything in its place." One needs to be able to access all tools and appliances with minimal body movements and almost without looking. A wall oven is key to this as it precludes unnecessary stooping. If strategically placed with the cooktop, a cook may not even need to take a step. This GE Monogram oven brings that spatial efficiency along with the dependability and quality for which the brand has long been known. With a cavernous 5 cu ft total capacity, it can churn out finished products all day long. Another aspect of mise en place is cleanliness of workspace. This oven features multiple self-cleaning options so that the cook can focus on productivity.

GE Wall Oven
GE Elements

Ten-Pass Elements - All the internal capacity in the world doesn't matter if the oven can't dependably cook its contents. This will pose no worries with the 10-pass bake and dual broil elements. They cover more surface area for more even results with dishes of all types and sizes.

GE Elements

True European Convection with Direct Air - Working in tandem with the ten-pass elements, the convection feature uses a fan and staggered channels on the interior walls to circulate heated air from the top of the oven to encompass food. This ensures uniform baking and roasting.

GE Racks

Full-Extension Oven Racks - When a kitchen is a constant flurry of activity, safety is paramount. Any spasmodic movement can spell disaster when hot dishes are involved. The full-extension oven racks were designed with this in mind. They use stainless steel ball bearings to smoothly glide in and out.

Elica - ELN136SS - You know that when a kitchen is used for normal family cooking the odor, steam/smoke, and heat can become overwhelming. Now imagine what's produced when a kitchen is used at full bore for near-commercial output. This is why good ventilation is crucial in a bustling kitchen. Elica has mildly diversified as of late, but since the 1970s, ventilation hoods were their only game. Proudly designed and manufactured in Italy, the seamless craftsmanship, stainless steel styling, and professional-grade performance of these hoods are a testament to doing one thing well. The 1200 CFM blower with four speeds will whisk any unwanted odor and fumes. This hood, as with every model Elica produces, comes in a wide range of sizes to match any range or cooktop. Taken with the lack of branding on the piece, these hoods will look wonderful with any set of appliances.

Elica Halogen

Halogen Lights - With everything going on in a professional kitchen, the ability to see everything cooking on the rangetop is invaluable. That's where these halogen lights come in. Their brilliant illumination of the workspace will ensure that not a thing is missed in the course of cooking.

Elica HUSH

HUSH Silence System - A professional kitchen is going to be noisy enough. The last thing you need is the deafening roar and whine of a hood blower. Though powerful, this hood employs an exclusive sound deadening technology that reduces decibels by over 35% compared to comparable models.

Elica Baffles

Dishwasher-Safe Baffle Filters - With the amount of effluvium this hood will draw away from the kitchen, it's expected that the filters will build up dirt that needs to be cleaned periodically. Thankfully, the baffle filters are entirely dishwasher safe saving any need to scrub them by hand.
