Does anyone have any suggestions as to which brand is the best? Thanks for any and all tips!
Before you purchase any commercial equipment for your home-based business, be sure to check whether it is legal in your town to operate a business out of your home where you are preparing and selling food.
I'm pretty sure it is not "kosher" in Washington D.C. to do that, but check the laws.
That said, I would be looking for auctions of restaurant equipment. Especially in this economy, you should be able to pick up a good unit, in excellent condition (maybe even 2nd cousin to new) for pennies on the dollar. Restaurants are closing right and left...
