Used Restaurant Equipment 

Used Restaurant Equipment can be purchased for all different types of cafes or restaurants.

Determine the type of equipment that you require.

An Italian restaurant may need a pasta cooker & a pizza machine whereas an Indian restaurant may need equipment to cook flat breads, such as roti & naan breads.

A fine dining restaurant would generally need all the used restaurant equipment to make, prep and cook food on the premises, though a fast food restaurant may purchase many of
the sauces and other food in bulk and pre-made so would not need as many pieces of food equipment or food machines for the restaurant.

To determine what type of restaurant equipment you require, you need to know what type of restaurant you are going to be opening.

What is a restaurant anyway, what is the definition of a restaurant and how does it differ from other food establishments.

A Restaurant: a place where people pay to sit and eat meals that are cooked and served on the premises.

Restaurants can range from Casual Dining through to Fine Dining (Silver Service) restaurants.


Different types of restaurants can range from:

Ethnic Restaurants:

Ethnic – ethnic restaurants are restaurants that specialise in ethnic or national cuisine such as a French restaurant, a Thai restaurant or a Vietnamese restaurant.

Food served in an ethnic restaurant is generally traditional cuisine from a specific country or region.

Fast Food:

There are two types of fast food establishments:

A fast food restaurant is as the name implies food that is prepared & served quickly i.e. Burger King and McDonald’s.

Fast Casual – a fast casual restaurant usually describes chain restaurants such as Pizza Hut or Chipotle Mexican Grill where more food is prepared at the restaurant
as opposed to a fast food restaurants or fast food chains as they are more commonly known.

Casual Dining:

Casual Dining – a casual dining restaurant is a restaurant that serves average priced food in a casual setting.  It is more laid back than a fine dining restaurant.

Family Style – a family style restaurant is a type of casual dining restaurant where food is  generally served on large platters and customers usually serve themselves.  

These restaurants are also known as family friendly restaurants as no alcohol is available or served on  the premises unlike a casual dining restaurant where alcohol may be served or be available on the  premises.

Fine Dining:

Fine Dining – Fine Dining Restaurants are full service restaurants where food is generally all made, prepared, cooked and served on the premises.

The food being served is generally priced at a premium.

The meals are served to diners and the service provided is generally of a much higher standard.

Ingredients and decor are generally high quality and many fine dining restaurants also have certain rules for dining including a dress code.

Within the different types of restaurants there are various variations of restaurants including:

  • Barbecue
  • Brasserie and bistro (soul food)
