An Incredible Collection of Professional Kitchen Equipment for Expert Chefs

Having the right tools for the job is crucial in any line of work, and this is just as important in a commercial kitchen. Whether you're a chef in a five star restaurant, a workplace canteen, prepare food in a local café, or you run an event catering business, you need to have the right utensils at hand.

Not only is it important to have the correct knives, pots, and pans at your disposal, but you will also need the right products to help you stay on top of health and safety. At Stephensons, you'll find many options for kitchen cookware, as well as useful items to keep your food fresh and safe to eat.

A Selection of Chefs' Knives

Any chef worth their salt knows how important it is to have quality knives and how to look after them properly. A dull knife can hinder your speed and technique in a fast-paced kitchen, not to mention this increases the risk of injury.

In our great collection of chefs' knives, you can find many options that are suitable for a commercial kitchen. There are more budget-friendly chefs' knives to browse through if you are looking for more economical solutions for your business. You can also discover world-recognised brands, including Tramontina, Global, Giesser Messer, Wüsthof, Victorinox, and Sabatier.

You will find colour-coded knives to help you manage allergens and other dietary requirements in your establishment, as well as general health and safety codes to prevent cross-contamination. There are different types of knives to pick from too, like large meat cleavers, pairing knives, bread knives, and more.

In addition to these, we have knife sharpeners and other accessories to help professional chefs maintain their chefs' knives to a high standard. This helps to prolong their life span and allows you to continue cooking up a storm safely and to the expert level your customers expect.

Our Range of Allergen Kitchen Equipment

Food allergies can range from causing mild discomfort to being life-threatening, and they must always be taken very seriously. The last thing you want is to make your customers unwell, and this is why every professional catering business—no matter how big or small—must invest in allergen equipment. This is also necessary in bar environments that might work with food for cocktail garnishes or preparing bar snacks.

If you are looking for suitable allergen products for your business, Stephensons has a great range for you to browse through. Not only do we have the purple colour-coded knives, but there are also allergen thermometers for food preparation, purple aprons, pizza cutters, spoons, chopping boards, and food containers. In addition, we also have a variety of food allergen labels and stickers to use for your preparation and as a notice for your customers.

All Kinds of Excellent Cookware

From large roasting pans and baking sheets to deep casseroles and stock pots, you will find all the best kitchen cookware for your business at Stephensons. When you are preparing food for many people, it's important to have kitchen equipment that can cater to these demands. Larger pots and pans are a must in professional kitchens, and we have a wide range of items for you to buy.

In addition to the above, you'll also discover strong and sturdy woks, a must-have piece of equipment for any menu that includes noodles and other stir-fried foods. There is also a specialist wok cleaning brush available to keep your woks in great condition.

You will find heavy-duty cast iron skillets and griddles that are perfect for cooking steaks, burgers, vegetables, seafood, and more. There are cast iron sizzle platters with a wooden base available as well, for any restaurant that likes to serve their fajitas still sizzling to the table. Of course, these are just a few examples of our extensive professional cookware collection.

You can also discover plenty of bakeware at Stephensons for your cakes and other sweet treats. These items are ideal for professional bakeries, catering companies, and anywhere that prepares homemade baked goods for their customers. Buy individual items or find bakeware sets to accomodate your baking needs for your delightful biscuits, cookies, traybakes, and more.

Useful Kitchen Disposables for Everyday Use

Never underestimate how much cling film or kitchen foil can come in handy, especially in a busy kitchen where there is a lot preparation to be done. It's always important to make sure you have plenty these disposables ready to go, so if your stock is looking a little low, replenish it with Stephensons. We have catering cling film, aluminium foil, baking parchment, and greaseproof sheets.

Still not what you need? Well then you might be looking for skewers and picks, souffle cups for your condiments, or even filter papers and oil testing strips for your deep fat fryers. Luckily, we have plenty of them, too!
