Cooking

Having the right cooking hire for your kitchen is essential if your event or occasion is to go smoothly. Whether using electricity or LPG as fuel, we've sourced the right kitchen hire equipment for you.

Catering equipment such as cooking hire is the cornerstone of what we do at Expo Hire East Midlands. We’ve made it our aim to source equipment which can be relied upon even in the busiest kitchen.

What cooking hire is there on offer?

We have a diverse cooking hire range, which is fuelled by both LPG and electricity, designed for inside and outside use. When sourcing our kitchen hire we've made every effort to get industry standard equipment, so that our customers have the utmost peace of mind. We work with venues throughout Derby, Leicester, Nottingham and surrounding areas, providing catering equipment hire not only for one-off events but to help cover breakdowns and issues.

All of our LPG equipment can be run on LPG bottles with standard bayonet fittings, while our electric equipment can all be run from a standard UK three pin plug. However, we do recommend checking the wattage of electric equipment as it can trip extension leads and generators. LPG products are designed for use outside, where they can provide lots of power without fear of tripping generators or extension leads.

Oven Hire in the East Midlands

The most frequently hired range within our catering equipment offering is oven hire. We rent ovens out to all kinds of venues across Derby, Leicester, Nottingham and surrounding areas, from comercial kitchens where a breakdown has occurred to weekend pop up events. Unlike many of our competitors, we continuously source new ovens for hire to ensure that we offer the best quality at all times.

We have both LPG and electric ovens available. Our LPG six burner ovens are suited to outside events where a lot of power is required such as pop up kitchens and large outdoor events. These ovens for hire run off LPG bottles, which we hire out separately. Connection is relatively simple to do but we do recommend that any customer who does not feel comfortable hooking these up to utilise the services of a Gas Safe engineer.

The electric Blue Seal Turbofan Ovens for hire are best used in indoor kitchens due to the large amount of power that they draw. These ovens are perfect for any kitchen that needs to bake, roast or grill lots of items, and are gastro tray compatible. We rent ovens like this frequently, and in the summer demand can be particularly high; as availability is limited we recommend booking early.

Our other Kitchen Hire available

Ovens are not the only items we have available in our cooking hire selection. We have a wide range of catering equipment hire available from barbecues to toasters, and griddles to grills.

One of our most popular products are LPG Fryers. Our LPG fryers for hire are great for pop up kitchens outdoors and offer lots of power and capacity which is just not achieveable by a comparable electrical product. These often go to streetfood stalls at food markets in the East Midlands, where they can be used safely and with confidence.

There is also a selection of other equipment available for more specialised cooking such as rice cookers, rotisserie ovens and conveyor toasters.

Do you need to order gas?

All of our LPG equipment is supplied without gas bottles. Please order separately if you need them

  • 13kg LPG Bottles are suitable for patio heaters
  • 19kg LPG Bottles are suitable for all other LPG equipment we stock
  • 30mm wrench required to attach bottles to equipment - can also be hired separately
  • If unsure about connecting bottles to equipment utilise a Gas Safe Engineer

Do kitchen hire items need to be cleaned?

There is no need to worry about cleaning your catering equipment hire after your event. We know how time can be a factor and energy levels can be low after an event, and with this in mind we offer a "send it back dirty" service to help resolve this problem.

It's a fact that catering equipment can be hard to clean after a hire period of full usage; from experience we know ovens and barbecues in particular can build up with grime from usage very quickly. Rather than sweating with a scourer, for just 25% of the hire price you can leave it all to us. Simply select the "send it back dirty" service in the checkout, wipe off any food debris or liquid before collection and we’ll sort the rest.

How does delivery of cookery hire work?

At Expo Hire East Midlands, we are particular about supplying equipment that is of good quality and condition. That's why all of our electric products are cleaned, checked and PAT tested prior to delivery and can provide evidence of this for your records if required. All of our electric products are powered by a standard three-pin UK plug. With this in mind, please be sure to check your power requirements prior to use, to ensure that you have not overloaded the circuit.

As with all of our equipment at Expo Hire East Midlands, LPG products are cleaned, checked and tested prior to delivery, with frequent inspections being completed by a gas safe engineer.

We can provide evidence of this, on request, once booking is confirmed. All of our equipment is supplied with a hose and regulator, which enable the product to be connected directly to an LPG bottle with a standard bayonet fitting.

It should be noted that our delivery team are unable to connect or set up equipment for you. If you do not feel comfortable connecting the appliance to the gas supply, we advise consulting a gas safe engineer.
