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 Chiltern. 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 Milton Keynes, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire, 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 Milton Keynes and the Chilterns

The most frequently hired range within our catering equipment offering is oven hire. We rent ovens out to all kinds of venues across Milton Keynes, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire, 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 Milton Keynes and the Chilterns, 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 kitchen hire items need to be cleaned?

Does the idea of cleaning catering equipment hire after your event give you nightmares? If time is a factor or you just don't want to do it, then our "send it back dirty" service is what you need.

It's a fact that catering equipment hire can be hard to clean after an event, especially things like ovens and barbecues. Instead of having to crack out the marigolds, for just 25% of the hire price you don't need to worry about it. Simply select the "send it back dirty service" in the checkout, and all you need to do is to wipe off any food debris or liquid and we’ll sort the rest.

How does delivery of cookery hire work?

We take pride in our products at Expo Hire Chiltern, which is why we inspect, clean and PAT test all of our equipment prior to delivery. Evidence of PAT testing can be also provided. Please Note: All of our electric products are powered by a standard three-pin UK plug. You will need to check your power requirements prior to use to ensure, to ensure they are compatible and will not be overloaded.

At Expo Hire Chiltern, we specialise in the supply and hire of LPG equipment for events and exhibitions throughout the Milton Keynes and Northampton area.

All LPG equipment is frequently cleaned, inspected and tested by a Gas Safe Engineer. We can provide evidence of this on request, once booking is confirmed.

The gas-powered appliances that we hire are supplied with a hose and regulator, allowing them to connect directly to an LPG bottle via a standard bayonet fitting. Please be aware that our drivers cannot attach or set up equipment for you. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, we recommend consulting a Gas Safe engineer.
