We realised our customers may not know that we are called out to many different types of Catering Equipment Repairs.  As more and more people are opting for a less formal approach to entertaining, hog roasts, pulled pork and rotisserie chicken are now more and more popular at events, including weddings – this has led to a more varied range of equipment for us to repair and service.

There are also the staple kebabs and chicken and chips shops that line high streets across the country. Health and safety is a major factor in any food business, and you need to have peace of mind that your equipment is running both effectively and safely, while maintaining the stringent health and safety requirements that food establishments and companies abide by.

At Elite Technical we have years of experience repairing and servicing equipment for the hospitality and catering industry, whether it’s a large portable catering company, or a kebab shop on the High Street. We recently had an enquiry from a butcher with a GastroTar rotisserie machine that had an electro-mechanical issue.

Rotisserie Catering Equipment RepairsGastroTar produces equipment for small and large commercial kitchens, and specialises in electric and gas chicken rotisseries. These machines are built well and very reliable however unforeseen problems can happen. Within 24 hours Elite Technical were able to be on site, assess the situation and fully repair the rotisserie machine, meaning that the butcher was able to quickly get back to serving a perfectly cooked roast chicken.

Give Elite Technical a ring to discuss your catering equipment maintenance and servicing requirements, whether it’s a kebab grill, chicken or hog roast rotisserie.

Our maintenance team will have you up and running again in no time.

In one of their previous blog posts on blender service and repairs, Elite Technical Services highlighted the rise of the popularity of smoothies in the UK, and the how having an efficient repair centre for your Blendtec blenders is paramount to keeping your customers happy.  If your blender does need to be repaired, you can give Elite Technical Services a call on 01923 236238 (or drop them an email at jenny@elitetech-services.co.uk) and they will endeavour to get your blender returned to you within 4 working days. Both Costa and Starbucks are regular clients, and if anyone knows the importance of good customer service, itʼs them.

 

Blendtec Repairs – Elite Technical Services are an accredited service and repair agent for Blendtec Blenders for the UK and Ireland, and as mentioned, they can collect, repair and return your blenders within four working days. With Spring and Summer fast approaching (and not forgetting the Easter school holiday rush), the last thing you want is to be a blender down at the height of the ʻsmoothie seasonʼ, leading to a loss in business and customers. Luckily, in their Elite Workshop, they have a number of units that can be hired out whilst your unit is being repaired. For a £100 returnable deposit, and £60 for the duration of the rental (including next day delivery), you can have a Blendtec Blender to use while yours is being repaired, meaning that you can keep your customers happy.

 

If you are still unsure as to whether a Blendtec blender is the right one for you, have a look at the Blendtec Stealth 875 Commercial Blender in action. It is the quietest, most powerful commercial blender on the market, and can easily tackle batters and soups as well as smoothies and milkshakes. It must be noted that, even though Elite Technical Services are authorised service and repair agents for Blendtec, Elite are not a sales agent for and do not sell Blendtec products or spares for Blendtec products.

Classeq Duo 750 Dishwasher

As any commercial kitchen knows, having reliable and efficient ʻbehind the scenesʼ equipment is essential, whether thatʼs a 10 burner oven, right down to how you keep your dishes sparkling clean.

In an article in The Caterer (13th April 2006), it talks about the importance of keeping your dishwashing equipment regularly maintained. The Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) aims to ensure that ʻwater is not contaminated by fittings, equipment or products that are connected to the mains supply. …Every item of kitchen equipment that is connected to the mains must comply with the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations.  Most new equipment will come with the necessary fitting to comply with WRAS. Only engineers with a qualification to connect equipment to the water supply should fit kitchen equipment that needs a supply of water.ʼ

So, who can repair and service equipment in a commercial kitchen?

In order to keep your guarantee valid, and to comply with WRAS regulations, most equipment will come with a condition of service. Kitchen equipment is often very technical and needs a trained and accredited service engineer to keep it running and comply with the terms of the guarantee. If it breaks down and there is no evidence of accredited servicing, the guarantee could be invalid.

At Elite Technical Services, we can advise, supply and fit the best dishwasher suited to your needs. We pride ourselves on being distributors, fitters and service engineers for the Classeq range of front loading dishwashers. One of our most popular washers is the Classeq Duo 750, a high volume dishwasher with built in chemical dispensers. As well as being economic to run due to its highly effective wash action, reduced water consumption via a 18 litre wash tank and a double skinned door and cabinet which reduces noise and heat loss, it easily copes with 18 plates per rack with a built in rinse booster pump, detergent dispenser, rinse aid dispenser and, most importantly, is WRAS Approved.

Elite Technical Services offer a comprehensive installation and site survey package on all Classeq products, and they all come with a 1 (Duo range 2) year parts and labour warranty as standard (additional warranty is also available). All our engineers have years of experience and are able to help advise and install Classeq dishwashers to WRAS Approved standard. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE), recommends that ʻyou may need to routinely service some appliances to ensure their continued safe operation. This must be done by competent personnel, such as appropriately qualified service engineers.ʼ

Choose Elite Technical Services to regularly service your Classeq dishwasher, safe in the knowledge that you are complying with WRAS regulations.

 

Blender Repairs and Servicing

Service and Repairs for the Blender Market

According to a report by Global Industry Analysts Inc, the global smoothie market was estimated to reach $9.0 billion by 2015, and is currently one of the major segments of the soft drink market in both the UK and US.

While the United States still dominates the world smoothie market, Europe is fast catching up, thanks to rise in the popularity of home blending machines such as the NutriBullet, and, believe it or not, warmer (if somewhat wetter) weather.blender repairs and servicing

Itʼs no wonder then that companies such as Starbucks and Costa have invested heavily in their Frappuccino® and smoothie machines. Starbucks alone have over 36,000 different ways to customize their favourite beverage, and Costaʼs SuperDay Smoothies range provides 2 of the recommended 5 a day pieces of fruit for the health conscious, so you need to be confident that your machine wonʼt let you down.

Blendtec blenders are built to the highest commercial standards, making them the most advanced blender you can buy, which is why it is favoured in commercial establishments such as Starbucks and Costa. However, with these blenders being used day in and day out, you need to make sure that they are serviced regularly, and by people who understand how they work.

Watford based Elite Technical Services was founded in 1999, and as well as installing and maintaining filtered water systems throughout Britain, they are also accredited service agents for Blendtec for the UK and Ireland.

blendtec blender service and repairElite Technical Services strive to collect, repair and return all blender repairs within four working days, and for regular customers, they can arrange to keep a pool of units. These can then be used as replacements in exchange for the faulty blender on site, all within a ʻnext working dayʼ timescale. All blender warranty repairs are backed by Blendtec within the specific timescale of the type of model. Work completed outside of the initial warranty period, will have a new 12 month guarantee, so you know you are good hands.

We canʼt see the smoothie or Frappuccino® craze ending any time soon, and with summer fast approaching, you need to make sure you are prepared. Make sure you have Elite Technical Services on hand so you never have to worry about turning customers away due to faulty equipment.
