WHAT MACHINE TO BUY TO MAKE ROASTED CHICKENS? Industrial chicken roasters 08/01/2021
At Cocina Horeca, we are passionate about helping our clients choose the right professional catering machinery for their business. When it comes to selling roast chickens, the choice of chicken roasting machine is very important.
When we decide to start a roast chicken business, we must bear in mind that for our customers, chicken a l’ast is synonymous with comfort and time.
The convenience of having it prepared at the desired time and the time saved by not having to cook it.
We must take it into account and be prepared for it.
Knowing that all customers will come for the chicken / chickens from 1 to 3 noon. We cannot fail since they have this food for lunch, generally on Sundays and holidays.
A well-seasoned, well-roasted, and warm chicken will make the customer repeat. Knowing that all customers will come for the chicken / chickens from 1 to 3 noon. We cannot fail since they have this food for lunch, generally on Sundays and holidays.

For this reason, it is vitally important to get it right when buying a chicken rotisserie.
At Cocina Horeca we have gas grills for chickens, electric chicken grills and chicken grills for firewood or charcoal. The choice of one or the other will depend on the business idea we have and the characteristics of our premises.
It is also vitally important to be correct when choosing the size of our machine. This will depend on the production we want to do.
The size of the spit is measured according to the number of swords and the capacity of each one.
The smallest chicken rotisserie we make is 1 spade, with capacity for 3 chickens. Recommended for individuals who want a machine to make roast chickens at home, or for very small businesses.
The largest capacity chicken rotisserie we have is the one with 90 chickens. This is the ideal chicken broiler for high productivity businesses.
Between one and the other, we have a wide range of possibilities.
The chicken roasters that are sold the most are those with 6 and 8 swords, with a capacity for 30 and 40 chickens respectively (with capacity for 36/48 chickens). However, we have more than 20 models of roasting machines of different capacities. You can see them all HERE.
Another factor to take into account is that as customers, we all like to be given the chicken, fresh from the sword, as this guarantees that it is at its best.
For this it is important to have sufficient productive capacity. In this sense, a double sword rotisserie can be useful that roast the chicken that is close to the burner, and those that are behind it are pre-cooking.
Sometimes, due to a timing issue, it can be complicated. In this case, also as a remedy, to supply more customers, there is the option of placing a warm display case to keep the chickens. Which can be used as a counter / partition with the public, and place the chopping tray on top.
Thinking about the business, look at the profitability that each roast chicken leaves, taking into account the cost in raw. A professional chicken rotisserie pays for itself in no time. For this reason, it is advisable to always have many more chickens than we have in charge, since 70% of clients do not order them.
If there are leftover chickens, you can do many things with them, from freezing them, to shredding them to make croquettes, cannelloni, etc. But every chicken served is profitable, with the same work time.
At a minimum, you usually make two full grills per serving. For this reason, PLANETARY OR ROTATING GRILLS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED. Due to their slowness, they take twice as long as a vertical chicken broiler. It is easy to understand, since the chicken is not permanently in front of the burner. They are also much more expensive to buy.
COCINA HORECA markets the EURAST brand, which has been manufacturing chicken roasters since 1951, which enjoy prestige due to their quality, reliability and durability, as there are grills with more than 40 years of operation. And it's the best-selling grill brand.
Likewise, it is possible to offer your customers other roasts, by having suitable swords for different foods.
For example the cage, for rabbits, or small pieces. Large capacity ones, for lamb, suckling pig, etc. The long skewers for roasting open chickens. The closed cage for potatoes, vegetables, etc.
