Catering Equipment Maintenance, PPM and Servicing
One of the ways to prevent those inconvenient catering equipment breakdowns is to carry out regular maintenance and servicing of your equipment. The saying “prevention is better than cure” can never be truer given the challenges the hospitality industry has faced in 2020.
CaterKit appreciates that you may not want to commit to lengthy contracts with a commercial kitchen service company. That is why we offer a range of commercial kitchen maintenance services, such as one-off equipment services or maintenance checks.
It can be a lot more cost-effective to carry out regular maintenance than replace equipment when it gets damaged beyond repair.
Regardless of your kitchen size or equipment type, we can provide one-off catering equipment services to give you peace of mind. This may be when you have a large function where you need reassurance, or in the build-up to busy periods such as Christmas where you cannot afford to have your equipment breakdown.

By carrying out regular maintenance of your commercial kitchen equipment, you can prevent costly breakdowns. By using a competent commercial kitchen service company, you will be able to pre-empt any major issues with equipment and ensure these are repaired before they have a more costly, knock-on effect.

Commercial Catering Equipment Testing
You may be happy with the functionality of your equipment and not require any formal servicing, however, do require your obligatory testing and compliance certificates.
As a specialist commercial kitchen service company, CaterKit can be flexible to provide you with your required catering equipment testing, such as Gas Safe gas certificates and electrical sign-off, whether as an annual inspection or following installation.
Our testing costs from £160 + VAT and can include all gas, electrical and portable appliance (PAT) testing.
Inspection and testing of gas equipment including gas interlocks systems are recommended to be carried out at least annually. For portable electrical appliances, it is recommended to test every 1 – 5 years. For more heavy-duty equipment, it is recommended by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) to test every 5 years.
It is worth noting that some insurance companies will require an annual compliance inspection of all your equipment including a CP42 gas certificate.
Why not combine your annual equipment testing with a detailed catering equipment service?
