Common Questions About Catering Supplies

What equipment is needed for catering?

Catering equipment plays a crucial role in preserving the quality and safety of food from prep to plating. When used in conjunction with pan carriers, food bars, and other buffet equipment, food pans aid in storing, transporting, reheating, and serving meals and meals components.

Since no meal is complete without beverages, some catering supplies help serve hot and cold drinks. Tea, coffee, and other hot drinks can be stored in and served from brewers or urns, while beverage dispensers can serve cold drinks like water, iced tea, and lemonade. Cooling tubs can be filled with ice and stocked with canned and bottled beverages. They provide bartenders and servers access to beverages and let guests grab their own drinks in self-service setups.

Catering supplies like serving utensils, dinnerware, disposable drinkware, and flatware will complete your service.

What catering equipment should I buy?

When you need to keep pre-cooked food out of the danger zone during transit, nothing beats a food pan carrier. These carriers may be insulated or heated for long hold times and are available in top- or end-loading designs. They are sized according to the number of pans they can accommodate, with some models holding as many as 24 pans.

Drop-in food wells can create a permanent serving station, but countertop buffet equipment like warmers and chafers can be used in temporary setups. Mobile self-serve buffets or cafeteria-style serving lines can also be set up with buffet stations, cold food bars, and steam tables mounted on casters.

Catering equipment like butane stoves, cooking carts, and carving stations can be used to spotlight guest chefs, cook menu items tableside, or offer made-to-order meal options. Portable bars enable caterers to add a temporary bar space to any event, while portable sinks can be set up to function as a server handwashing station to help ensure food safety at events without access to a permanent sink.
