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 Bristol & Avon. 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 Bristol, Bath, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Devon, 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 Bristol and the South West of England

The most frequently hired range within our catering equipment offering is oven hire. We rent ovens out to all kinds of venues across Bristol, Bath, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Devon, 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 Bristol and the South West of England, 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?

Are you worried about cleaning your catering equipment hire after your occasion or event? If time is a factor or you know you’ve got too much else to worry about while packing up, then our "send it back dirty" service is what you need.

We know that catering equipment can be hard to clean after a hire period of full usage – especially things like ovens and barbecues. Rather than breaking out the scourer, for 25% of the hire price you can leave it all to us. Just wipe off any food debris or liquid and we'll do the rest once it has been returned. To take advantage of this service simply select in the checkout.

How does delivery of cookery hire work?

We stock and deliver a wide range of electrical products, and live by the moral that we will only hire out items that are of good quality and in good condition. This is why at Expo Hire Bristol and Avon we clean, inspect and PAT test all electricals prior to delivery, and can even provide evidence of this if required. All of our electrical products are fitted with a 3 pin UK plug, meaning they are widely compatible throughout all major venues. Please Note: We advise that you check the limitations of your power supply prior to use, to ensure it is not overloaded.

All of our equipment is supplied complete with a hose and regulator, meaning they can easily be connected to a standard LPG gas bottle via the bayonet fitting.

We pride ourselves on safety at Expo Hire Bristol and Avon. That's why all of our gas equipment is regularly checked and tested by a Gas Safe engineer.

Evidence of this can be provided (on request) upon confirmation of your order. Please Note: Our delivery team cannot connect or set up equipment for you. If you are not comfortable doing this, we advise that you consult a Gas Safe engineer.

It’s easier than ever to find out the delivery and collection costs to and from your venue for event hire. Tap the Expo Hire Bristol & Avon logo from any page on the website to be taken to the homepage where you will find our carriage calculator button. Enter your postcode into the clever widget and not only will it tell you what the carriage cost is to that venue but also which of our websites is closest so that you don’t pay any more than you should.

You’ll also find a list of all our possible extra surcharges on that page. If applicable, these are confirmed in the checkout once you have confirmed your delivery address along with dates of delivery and collection. They’re itemised in full before you make payment so that there are no nasty surprises, and you know exactly what you are paying for.
