Buying Guide

Kitchen islands are at the center of today's kitchens. They are practical and provide the extra working space that if often lacking when prepping and cooking. Available in all types of styles, a commercial kitchen island can have open or enclosed storage, drop leaves for additional counter space or wheels for portability.

Commercial quality and decor friendly, kitchen islands deliver needed features for organization and aesthetic beauty from some of the best manufacturers in the business.

High-grade and solid materials make all the difference in selecting a commercial kitchen island. Dependability is a must in a busy kitchen environment.

  • Wood - Eco-friendly wood, such as maple, birch and cherry, provide substantial 4" thick hard grain tops for tough daily work. Non-toxic polyurethane finishes protect the surface while adding a warm rich glow. Rubberwood is common for bases that are stained in a variety of wood finishes/
  • Colors - Natural wood or stainless steel is usually standard for the top, but designer colors can be found along the base. These include black, gray, white, red, green, blue or brown.
  • Stainless Steel - A popular material for the best of commercial kitchens, stainless steel is nonporous and has a hygienic surface that is perfect for food prep. Strong and stain resistant, island tops often use stainless steel.

The type of storage offered by kitchen islands can basically be divided into open and closed:

  • Open Storage - The open storage concept is for smaller areas that require extra prepping space and the convenience of placing pots and pans on below shelving. Slim drawers may be included or locking casters for easy movement around the workspace.
  • Closed Storage - Found in permanent or portable units, doors and drawers hide utensils from view while being within easy reach. Towel racks or drop leaves along the sides are optional. The enclosed look creates a backdrop for matching styles to existing kitchen cabinets, giving the island a built-in look.

Massive kitchen islands with sinks, cooktops and breakfast counter spaces do not always fit into the design of smaller kitchens. Styles that manage size, personal needs and decorating schemes have emerged to slide right into any kitchen.

Sizes vary according to the space provided in a kitchen. A small kitchen may use a portable unit that can be moved against a wall when not in use. Fixed units should be measured to accommodate traffic areas within the kitchen. Clearance of 36" to 42" should be a standard distance along all sides of the island. Normal lengths of a commercial kitchen island can range from 34" to 60". A typical width is 28" with slight variations according to size and style.

A wood surface can stay clean with soap and water. Keep disinfected with a spray bottle filled with vinegar and water. Rinse with water and dry. Stainless steel is naturally effective against bacteria, but keeping the surface clean requires removing food and dirt. Wipe with a mixture of water and dish soap. Shine with ammonia and water.

A stainless commercial prep table is cheaper than an island! Means you have to dust things, though. Hmm.
