10 Utensils You Must Never Scrimp On

Posted on

In the hospitality and catering industry, the customer’s experience is everything. That means if the customer sees it, uses it, or tastes something that comes into contact with it- quality is non-negotiable. However, when you’re shopping for foodservice supply items or any equipment for a restaurant, you’re probably working within a tight budget, and need to save as much as possible. To that end, here ten food equipment items that must be top quality.

Eating Utensils

The utensils your customers use to handle and eat food must be of the highest quality. They should look good, feel good, and not transfer flavors.

Wooden Cooking Spoons

Second rate wooden cooking spoons tend to break down quickly. This gives rise to contamination hazards. 


Everything at the bar must have a top-quality look and feel. The bar is all about aesthetics. 


There’s no room for error when it comes to meat temps. Use only the best, most accurate thermometers.

Kitchen Shears

Kitchen shears are a heavy-use, high-use item and will break down quickly if they are not made well.

Skillets and Pans

Low-quality pans and skillets won’t last and can limit your chef’s ability to perform at their best.

Chef’s Knives

Nothing boost’s a chef’s confidence like a world-class chef’s knife. Let your chef impress by getting him the best.

Measuring Cups

Measuring cups have to be accurate, and they need to be durable enough to not develop surface damage, which will hinder accurate measurement and transfer flavor when you don’t want them to.

Back Equipment

Kitchen gear doesn’t have to look great, but it does need to perform. Take the time to research brands and items before you buy.
