The Ultimate Purchasing Guide for Garland Range

There is a massive variety of different brands and types of ranges on the market. So much so that it can be difficult to decide which range is best for your restaurant. Garland is one of the leading manufacturers and providers of commercial range tops in the country and produces the industry standard in restaurant-grade ranges. 

Today, we are going to be giving you our ultimate purchasing guide for Garland Ranges. There are essentially two different types of Garland commercial grade restaurant ranges which include: 

  • Restaurant Grade, Mid-Sized Commercial Restaurant Ranges.
  • Garland Heavy Duty Grade Commercial Ranges.

We are going to cover the pros and cons as well as the benefits and the costs of each. 

Restaurant Grade, Mid-Sized Commercial Restaurant Ranges

There are a lot of great benefits that come with Garland’s mid-sized ranges. These are going to be better suited for small to mid-sized businesses and restaurants, that have 150 seats or less. Most of the time, you can find these in 

  • School cafeterias. 
  • Church kitchens. 
  • Shelter kitchens. 
  • And small mom and pop restaurants and diners. 

These commercial Garland ranges are going to be less expensive than some of the heavy-duty grade commercial ranges from Garland, but they are not going to be able to withstand the heavy cooking demands of larger restaurants. Some of the best parts about these types of Garland ranges is that they have less expensive upfront costs and ongoing maintenance costs than heavy-duty Garland ranges. They are smaller and save room in your kitchen, and many of them can produce similar power and BTUs as heavy-duty models. The drawbacks are that they can not sustain the heavy, long-term use that heavy-duty commercial ranges can. 

Garland Heavy Duty Grade Commercial Ranges

Heavy-duty commercial grade ranges are built for heavy daily and long-term use. They usually provide far more heat and power than smaller, mid-sized commercial restaurant ranges from Garland. Restaurants that have more than 150 seats should be looking into investing in larger, more powerful and more durable ranges like these. These ranges deliver lower cook times than mid-sized commercial Garland ranges because of the power they produce, and they can bear the weights of heavier kitchen pots and pans because of their durable design. 

The drawbacks of these ranges are that the upfront and ongoing maintenance costs of these ranges are much higher than mid-sized restaurant ranges. You are also going to be paying more in utility bills to keep these high-powered, heavy-duty ranges running.
