When you buy catering equipment from an internet site, make sure the company you are dealing with is an established company.

Chefsrange is run by a small team of people who can advise you on the best commercial catering equipment to buy for your operation.  We won’t sell you something that we don’t think will do the job and we’ll tell you if we think you could buy a better product. We’ve been selling catering equipment to restaurants, hotels, etc for over 13 years and are a family based business, small enough to give you that personal touch, but established and knowledgeable enough to rank amongst one of the top catering equipment suppliers in the UK.

We do sell nearly all types of catering equipment from light duty counter top equipment to heavy duty production catering equipment. We don’t sell cups and saucers etc – to be honest there are companies on the internet who specialise in this type of catering equipment and we prefer to be a specialist supplier of capital equipment rather than trying to sell everything.

If you ever experience a problem with your equipment, call our friendly team who will be happy to assist you, or to supply spare parts for any catering equipment or refrigeration we have supplied. With Chefsrange you’re a name not a number!

Take a look at our prices, they are very competitive and whilst we don’t guarantee a price match on catering equipment we can often beat many of our competitors and give you a better more personal service into the bargain ….. we’ll even pay for your phone call !!! Just dial 0800 9174172 or go to

Looking for a new glass or dishwasher for your commercial dishwasher?

Take a look a the some of the special deals Chefsrange have on glasswashers and dishwashers form quality manufacturers.

Whether you need a small glasswasher for your bar, an undercounter dishwasher, pass through dishwasher or a conveyor or tunnel dishwasher, our helpful team will be able to guide you through the options available.

1) Does the machine need a drain pump? This depends on the position of your drain.

2) Do you need a break tank – this is a water board regulation in many areas.

3) What volume of plates, glasses are being processed, or do you need a special tray or pot wash dishwasher?

All dishwasher and glasswashers should have a water softner whether its a low cost manual softener or an automatic softener – failure to fit a water softener may invalidate your warranty.

Tables and prewash sinks for dishwashers can be made to your specific sizes for easy loading and unloading of the dishwasher.

Chefsrange sell many bain marie whether it’s electric or gas you are looking for, there’s no need to look any further. There’s a mega deal available at the moment on the popular Lincat BS7 electric bain marie – reduced to the lowest price ever … only £270 – they only have a few left at this price, so don’t leave it too late or you’ll pay much more. Have a look at the following webpage:

If you are looking for gas, they are available in natural or LPG gas, from freestanding to counter top. If you have a preference for gastronorom size take at look at the Italian built Olis and Giorik, whilst the Parry and Lincat models are excellent value for money and come with pots included from only £180.

Think whether dry or wet well would be best for your operation, dry heat is better for items such as roast potatoes, whilst wet well bains marie are best for casseroles etc. Remember Chefsrange will always give you their best price, so give them a ring to find out what they can offer to you.

Equally if you need a more elaborate form of bainmarie, maybe built into a carvery or servery counter, they offer bespoke solutions to suit your budget and style.
