Chip Warmer

Enhance productivity and presentation by creating an area to hold, serve and display cooked chips. Heating from above and below, the Roband chip warmer maintains cooked chips at the correct serving temperature and allows the basket to be immediately returned to the fryer for the next batch. At the same time, the heat lamps serve to throw a yellow light onto the cooked chips to enhance presentation.

Deep Fryers

Countertop frying at its simplest! With all the power and efficiency of the larger models, your Roband deep fryer will provide high performance whilst freeing up valuable countertop space.

Grill Stations

The modern, stylish Roband Grill Station is available in six or eight slice size models and sets the benchmark for commercial contact grills. The versatile unit rapidly toasts sandwiches, paninis and focaccias, in addition to producing beautifully seared and grilled tender meat, poultry and fish.

Featuring elements embedded directly into smooth, high pressure die-cast aluminium plates, the cooking surface produces an even, extremely efficient heat transfer ensuring food is cooked rapidly with even colouration. The Roband Grill Station truly is a must-have for cafes, takeaways, sandwich shops or anywhere that toasting and/or grilling is required.

Heat Lamps

The stylish and functional Roband quartz heat lamp assemblies provide a balance of heat and light to front or back of house applications. They are manufactured from an exclusive extruded anodized aluminium, with a number of different sizes and options available to suit various requirements.

The Quartz Heat Lamp Assemblies now also feature Easy Fit globes which have a protective quartz outer layer that encapsulates the inner globe allowing for easier handling, and are easily replaceable without the need for an electrician.

Boiling Hot Plates

Hot Water Urns

These Robatherm Hot Water Urns feature a unique mode selector switch that allows either variable or pre-set temperature control, providing ultimate flexibility and ease of use.

Switching the mode selector to pre-set will fix the temperature at 95 ºC, the optimal temperature for most applications involving tea and coffee. Using pre-set mode offers a fast and easy setup, achieving consistent temperatures every time. Adjustment of the knob in pre-set mode has no effect on the temperature setting of the urn - it remains constant at nominal 95 ºC. This prevents continuous boiling and excessive consumption of energy.

Hot Dog & Bun Warmers

The Robatherm Percolator, arguably best in its class, has been cleverly designed to deliver outstanding percolated coffee or tea in a simple to use fashion and with minimal parts to clean.

Whilst the taste of the finished beverage speaks for itself, it’s the elegant style, double skin construction with quality components such as a brass tap, twist lock lid and sturdy handles coupled with the simple and effective coffee/tea basket design that sets this percolator apart from the competition.

Pie Warmers & Hot Food Displays

These compact, functional units display and maintain foods at the desired serving temperature. Attractive, with full view glass, The Roband pie warmers can be placed on front or rear counters with access optional from one side or both.

They both utilise an automatic element timer for consistent results. Once cooked, the toast can remain warm in the machine before being manually ejected. Note that the units are designed for continuous use. A change in selection to the number of slices toasted will require a period for element temperatures to equalise. Uneven toasting may result during these transitional periods.

My Commercial Kitchen

Posted by: Sydney Commercial Kitchens |  Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Sydney Commercial Kitchens is building a demo kitchen and working showroom of great catering equipment in our warehouse space in Warriewood. It has been our goal to do something like this since we first purchased this office and warehouse unit in 2012.

And we now have approval to commence building, with construction due to start in the second week of October.

My Commercial Kitchen layout

Having access to all the best equipment through our many great suppliers, our intention is to utilise this and build something amazing, a real show kitchen that highlights the best of our industry.

The ‘My Commercial Kitchen’ space will have 3 individual cooking areas, each with approximately 5 metres of stainless steel bench space, as well as a shared cool room, freezer, and access to combi steamer ovens, blast chillers and a host of other equipment that has become standard features in commercial kitchens around the world.

There is nothing else quite like it, in Sydney anyway!

Once it is up and running our plan is to hold regular demonstrations on a variety of commercial cooking appliances, plus, potential customers can make an appointment for a private demonstration on any equipment that they might be considering purchasing, provided that item is available or just to see what the equipment looks like.

If you are a caterer, or a restaurant that does private functions and you never seem to have enough work space to get these jobs, then ‘My Commercial Kitchen’ might be the answer to that problem!

For local restaurants, use My Commercial Kitchen to do your food production during the quieter times[Monday - Wednesday], at cheaper labour rates, which reduces the work load at your busy times and the number of staff required to produce that food.

Imagine for example, using our combi ovens to slow cook your meat products overnight, then use the blast chiller/freezer to bring them down to storage temperatures in an acceptable HACCP timeframe. Once that product has been portioned you could bag them using the vacuum sealer and then, depending on the product, you would have a shelf life of 3-5 days.

This method will allow for you to prepare your food in a controlled environment to your recipe, no more cooking food in the ehat of the moment during busy periods.

Adande’s patented refrigerated drawers are unique to the marketplace, enabling customers to differentiate their product offerings. They make sure that the cold air is retained when you open a drawer, providing energy savings of up to 40%. Installed throughout QSRs worldwide as well as Michelin starred restaurants, Adande drawers suit a broad cross section of foodservice applications.

The Adande Refrigerated Drawer System was developed as a solution to the frequently asked question by chefs working on North Sea oil & gas rigs in need of commercial refrigeration especially refrigerators and freezers that would hold temperature. With staff on the rigs being fed day and night, the refrigerator and freezer doors were in constant use. With chefs working 24/7, the problem of cold air falling out on each door opening was leading to food spoiling and being thrown out - a very expensive hobby for any caterer!

Adande came up with a patented refrigerated drawer solution that has evolved into a modular unit that has proven itself with commercial catering equipment all over the world.

The Adande Refrigerated Drawer has won various awards for innovation and sustainability in commercial refrigeration, the most recent being the Australian Fine Foods Best New Hospitality Product in 2012. It is one of a number of innovativecommercial fridge designs which provide superior cold storage conditions, using less energy, than traditional refrigeration designs.

Working with customers and development partners on refrigeration projects, Adande’s research and development team continually extends the range of products that use the core, groundbreaking technology.

Adande has licensed the patent protected refrigerated drawer technology to global manufacturing and marketing partners and is distributed exclusively by Stoddart in Australia.


The most versatile range of Australian made products for your commercial kitchen, with more products being added every day.

Since its inception in the 1950’s Stoddart has manufactured custom commercial food equipment suited to heavy duty use in the commercial kitchen equipment industry. Over the years, the demand for these custom items, including Bain Maries and Hot Cupboards, grew to such an extent that listing them as "custom" wasn’t quite true anymore.

In the early 2000’s, the Culinaire brand was born. Stoddart senior management made a decision to create a brand that encompassed these now essentially standard products. What began as a customised solution for commercial kitchen equipment and catering equipment became a recognised and trusted brand in Australia, with an extensive product range growing exponentially.

Today, the range of kitchen equipment products offered by Culinaire includes much more than the reliable Bain Marie and Hot Cupboard, which are still in production and have an entire range of variations suited to the market. Culinaire also manufactures ambient and hot food displays, cold food displays as well as heated wells, refrigerated wells and island buffets. Additionally, vertical hot cupboards, banquet carts and warming drawers have been added to the stable. A whole range of back bar refrigerators can also be found within the Culinaire range as well as meal plating, dishwasher conveyors and utility walls just to name a few.


Australia’s most popular range of refrigerated and heated food displays.

Koldtech is Australia's most popular range of refrigerated cold food display and heated hot food display cabinets. Not only do they store products in an environment that keeps products at healthy temperatures but also looking and tasting better for longer.

Moffat Kitchens Bar Torino

Posted by: Sydney Commercial Kitchens |  Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Planning stages

A couple of popular sayings spring to mind when considering Adelaide’s new Bar Torino – in particular "good things take time" and "it runs in the family". For owner Nick Favaro, good food and drink is in his blood.

Though it only opened in February this year Nick says Bar Torino has been “in the works” for ten years. With his Italian family in hospitality for over three decades now and Nick’s long-term ambition to start his own venture, the sustained dreams and hard work have paid off with a successful opening and on-going patronage.

Waldorf commercial cooking equipment, convotherm combi

After finding a suitable site for the bar in 2013 Nick left behind a career as an accountant and embarked on a research trip to Europe. Here, he focused on exploring his Italian heritage and learning as much as possible about how Italians and Spaniards eat, drink and enjoy life.

"In Europe food and drink is so much a part of the culture. It’s about refined enjoyment. It brings people together. We wanted to bring a bit of this home to Australia," Nick says.

Now, with Nick and his sister Jessica running Bar Torino and the pair sharing ownership with their parents, the family has together shaped the venue into a unique and memorable dining and drinking destination. The bar’s popularity is due in no small part to the balance it delivers.

"We have a great bar with a wide variety of drinks (including some unique gins), and an elaborate shared menu," says Nick. "We want everyone to drink responsibly so you can come in from 11am to midnight and you’ll always find something delicious to eat as well as drink."

The food is fun, relaxed and communal. The "bar bits" menu includes such tempting tastes as house-cured meats and popcorn drizzled with honey butter – then served with salted caramel sauce. The interior of the bar also has a warm, European feel with white-washed walls, black tiles and lots of rustic, wooden tones.

Open for 11 hours a day, six days a week, and with seating for 120 people, demand on the kitchen is considerable. The kitchen and bar area is also on display to patrons. So it’s important that it’s in keeping with the contemporary, sophisticated fit-out.

In the kitchen

Waldorf commercial cooking equipment, washtech dishwasher convotherm combi

When setting up their kitchen Nick turned to Moffat, before installing a whole range of the high performing Waldorf 800 Series equipment. This includes a Waldorf twin pan gas fryer, a chargrill, salamander, cooktop and target top.

To add to this impressive line-up of powerful equipment, Bar Torino has installed a 10.10 and 6.10 gas Convotherm combi-steamer ovens as the double-stacked backbone of the kitchen. There’s also a Turbofan prover & holding cabinet, a Friginox blast freezer and for a productive dishwashing solution, a Wexiodisk dishwasher and Washtech dishwasher.

"Moffat offer good products, and have personable, on-site service", says Nick. "We’ve only been open a short while, but so far, I think we’re all quite impressed with the equipment."

With a technology line-up like this, and Nick’s passion helping to drive it, Bar Torino will continue to offer culinary treats and beverage delicacies – bringing people together to share in his Italian dreams.

Pittwater Golf Centre

Posted by: Sydney Commercial Kitchens |  Tuesday, June 16, 2015

We recently completed a fitout at the Pittwater Golf Centre for Pittwater Council.



Scope of works

  • Provide new under bench refrigeration, both fridges and freezers
  • New cooking equipment
  • New dishwasher on a stand
  • Use Simply Stainless benching
  • Stainless steel wall panelling in all areas


Local supplier Fagor came to the party with some great deals on 3 under bench fridges and an under bench freezer, which included an extended warranty for added peace of mind.


  • Turbofan E31D4 convection oven
  • Roband GT400 Toaster Griller
  • Vollrath Induction cook top
  • Woodson bench top Exhaust Canopy
  • Fagor AD48 under bench dishwasher on a stand

Stainless Steel Benching

Simply Stainless flat pack product was the ideal choice. Typically you should expect to save around 40% on the cost of custom stainless steel benching using the Simply Stainless range, which is a great result.

Wall Panelling

We engaged Stainash to provide and install stainless steel wall panelling in all work areas and to protect the open doorway. As always they did a highly professional job.

The end result

A very satisfied customer and we came in under budget.
