Never have gadgets been more prevalent in the professional kitchen. Chefs have long had knives, mixers and blenders, but over recent years we have seen more and more amazing bits of kit added to a chef's armoury.
Espuma guns, thermal circulating baths and induction planchas, to name but a few, now reside in numerous kitchens. Perhaps one of the latest to crop up is the smoker, as witnessed on the latest series of Great British Menu and used in various top chefs' establishments.
Keeping up with culinary trends is vital, but it is equally important to choose equipment that can withstand every aspect of the harsh working environment that is the commercial kitchen.
