Essential Smallware and Cookware Your Restaurant Needs


Commercial smallware and cookware is able to withstand the test of cooking and cleaning on a large scale.

Picking the right types of smallware and cookware to fit your restaurant kitchen’s needs is key to your restaurant’s day-to-day operations. There are various types of cookware to help you sauté vegetables, brew some delicious soup, roast the main entrée, or set the table for all of your guests. Commercial smallware and cookware is able to withstand the test of cooking and cleaning on a large scale, so it is important to figure out exactly what you need before opening up a new eatery. Read on for a few essential smallware and cookware supplies that your restaurant needs!

Frying Pans

Frying pans are excellent forms of cookware that every restaurant needs. How else do you expect to cook up most dishes? Some of the best ones have curved sidewalls for easy stirring and sliding food out of the pan when needed. They’re ideal for frying, sautéing, searing, and scrambling. Their sloped sides also prevent steam from forming inside the pan.

Cutlery Smallware

You should buy two and a half times as many place settings along with the number of seats. Cutlery is thrown away very quickly, as well as stolen and damaged throughout the day. Therefore, as a restaurant, you’re going to need a lot of cutlery. These smallware supplies include dinner and steak knives, dessert spoons, tablespoons, soup spoons, and forks. Luckily, HC Walterhoefer has got you covered with all of the smallware cutlery supplies that you need.

Sauté Pans

Sauté pans are essential if you’re looking to sauté plenty of gourmet dishes in your eatery. Sauté pans are very similar to your average cooking pan, only they have a wide bottom area that is for maximum heat conduction. They are ideal for searing, sautéing, braising, deglazing, poaching, and stir-frying. Their straight and high sides help contain food and expose many sides to the heat of the pan.


Barware is also a necessity if you serve alcohol. The general essentials for barware are shot glasses, brandy sniffers, and rock glasses. You can’t forget wine glasses and bottle openers as well.
