Get the best catering equipment hire for your kitchen. All of our electric equipment is PAT tested while our LPG equipment is regularly certified by a Gas Safe engineer

Choosing the right catering equipment hire can be tricky but we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you with our selection.

How do I know which kind of oven hire I need to choose?

Putting together any kind of kitchen, commercial or temporary can be a stress. Getting the right oven hire is one of the big decisions to make as the wrong choice can be disastrous in some cases.

At Expo Hire South Wales we offer both LPG and electric ovens for hire; the choice of which is the right one to hire depends on the situation it is being hired into. Electric ovens for hire are the right choice for those events and kitchens which are indoors, where they can be used to bake, roast and grill food with ease. However, because electric ovens need large amounts of power they’re not at all suitable for use outdoors. The wattage required by electric ovens is far too much for temporary power supplies such as generators and extension leads and these will trip out easily while trying to use them with electric ovens. The correct choice for outdoor kitchens are LPG ovens like our six burner oven as they use LPG bottles to fuel the oven’s powerful burners. LPG ovens are not designed to be used indoors due to the lack of ventilation of exhaust fumes.

Having high quality stock has always been of importance to us and because of this we frequently replace our ovens with new ones. This is particularly important with ovens which are often the main workhorse of a kitchen and allows our customers to order from us with peace of mind.

What kind of fridge hire is there?

Keeping food and drink cold does not need to be a hassle or an expensive problem to have. We work with all kinds of events and occasions along with commercial and pop up kitchens throughout Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan and the surrounding area to help with fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers deliver fridges to venues throughout the South Wales region, helping to ensure that event organisers don’t need to worry about keeping things cold.

We have a wide variety of fridges for hire in stock and available at Expo Hire South Wales. Our upright glass-fronted display fridges are one of the most frequently hired products we have on offer, going to all kinds of events everywhere to people such as retailers, exhibitors and event organisers. We also stock double door bottle coolers which are perfect for spaces such as bars as an under counter fridge. For those customers who are after something a little bit more specialist we have wine fridges, countertop fridges and chilled drink dispensers in stock.

Commercial kitchens need space to not only store and chill food but also for food preparation. To solve this problem, we offer counter fridges with integrated workspaces which meet this need and which can be wheeled quickly into position with ease. At the other end of the spectrum, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed for kitchens with large storage requirements.

Is there commercial barbecue hire available?

The taste of food cooked outside on a warm spring evening or lazy summer day is difficult to be beaten. While a private party can easily make do with a small bbq, we understand that our commercial customers need commercial barbecue hire.

The barbecues for hire we have in stock have been selected with large outdoor events in mind and can happily feed hundreds of guests. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard barbecue which features two separate cooking areas, allowing for differing menus to be served at the same time without fear of cross-contamination. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get going.

What do I need to know about catering equipment hire?

Regardless of what catering equipment you hire, there are some important things to take into consideration before hiring.

The most important consideration is power. All of our electrical items use a standard three pin UK plug and have been PAT tested prior to dispatch. Please check the wattage required as more powerful products can trip extension leads and generators. As a rule, electric equipment is designed to be used indoors.

Our LPG equipment is all regularly certified by a Gas Safe Engineer as being safe to use, and certification is available on request. All of our equipment uses standard bayonet fittings and can be attached to 19 or 47kg gas bottles. We cannot do this for you on delivery – if you’re not sure how to do it please ask a Gas Safe engineer to connect it for you. LPG equipment is designed to be used outdoors in the main.
