I originally purchased this for my coffee shop 12 years ago. It has since travel with in my RV thru Texas and Utah and resides in my home in Colorado and it still works great. It is now and has always been used nearly daily sometimes all day. My fan is starting to stick when turned on but closing the door firmly usually starts it going, but still pretty amazing that's the only problem ever.
This was the first commercial over that I have bought for my small tasting room business. It rattles and doesn't hold the heat well. I have to set the temp 100 above what something calls for because the thermostat is not accurate. The racks just sit on the runners and will fall out if pulled too far. I guess you get what you pay for.
I've only owned this toaster for a little over a year and a half and it's already had two major malfunctions that prevent the toaster from working. the first malfunction happened within a year, so the (really slow) repair was at least covered under warranty. Now, another issue 4 months later has kept the unit on the shelf ever since because it's not under warranty any longer and the market rate for repairs is $100 an hour plus parts. I bought a cheap $100 backup unit the first time this one went down, and at this point it has been working for longer without issues than this $500 overpriced unit did. Don't buy it. There's a reason they're not advertising a great manufacturer's warranty...
I upgraded from a very small toaster that held about 3 sub rolls at a time. This one holds roughly 12 for me. The legs seem a bit cheap but the overall quality of the oven is fantastic.
I own a catering company so was very excited about this oven because its small and compact to travel with and plugs into normal outlet. I love the oven and the way it functions but the cheap plastic long legs are fragile and tipsy. You cant even scoot the oven on the counter to move it with out the legs bending. I am sure they will snap in no time. The other thing not really thought out is the inside light protrudes outward so the middle rack does not slide in right. It bumps up against the plastic light cover because it sticks out to far.
What can you do if the health inspector comes and says that you need a ventilation system for your small cooking equipment but you don’t have the money or ability to add a traditional hood system? You just need one of Equipex’s new ventless hood systems. These innovative systems can be used to vent any type 2 cooking appliances (those that don’t need a built-in fire suppression system) and they only require a simple 120-volt power supply. Plus, they are the only ventless hoods that currently conform to the EPA 202 standard which proves that they actually do remove grease and other contaminants from the air.Equipex's Ventless Hoods
For show cooking and easy cleaning, nothing can compete with the new vitroceramic cooking surface found on many of Equipex’s new panini grills and griddles. This unique and innovative cooking surface is made from vitroceramic glass which is a non-porous and incredibly strong material, so you don’t have to worry about it surviving in a tough commercial kitchen. Additionally, because the surface is non-porous, it also reduces carbon build up and is incredibly easy to clean, saving you time and money on labor costs.Equipex's Vitroceramic Grills and Griddles
