Why hire an industrial kitchen in London?
London boasts commercial kitchens, restaurant kitchens and kitchen studios equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, expansive spaces, and a range of amenities tailored to meet the needs of food professionals and enthusiasts alike. Whether you're planning to launch a new food product, capture stunning visuals for your food blog, or host a culinary event, renting an industrial kitchen offers many benefits.
Professional kitchens are designed for efficiency and functionality, providing a realistic and professional backdrop for food-related shoots. Industrial kitchens are also equipped with professional grade appliances and tools, ensuring that you have access to everything you need for your shoot. This includes large ovens, industrial-sized mixers, and other specialised equipment that may not be readily available in a standard kitchen.
Industrial kitchens typically have more space than a regular kitchen, allowing the crew to move equipment around, plus the extra space can be especially beneficial for video shoots where multiple angles and setups may be required. Another factor to consider is whether your shoot involves cooking or preparing food for commercial purposes, in this case using a licensed industrial kitchen will help you comply with health and safety regulations.
Temperature control is another important aspect when dealing with food, and commercial kitchens equipped with adequate heating, cooling, and refrigeration systems to store and prepare food at safe temperatures, as well as ensure fodd stays looking fresh throughout the shoot.
Some industrial kitchens may have on-site professionals who can assist with food preparation and other aspects of the shoot. This can be valuable if you need expertise in culinary techniques or if you want to showcase specific cooking processes.
