World-Class Tools for Serving Global Favorites

Even in times when transportation costs are reasonable, most of us don’t have the luxury of jetting off to Sicily when we’re in the mood for meatballs or cruising off to Cancun when we’re feeling like fajitas. How lucky are we that we live in a time and place where the world is our oyster when it comes to cuisine?

You’ve already got the talent and the recipes to serve up a world of flavor that’s conveniently close to home for your customers. Specialized equipment can give you an even greater edge when it comes to competitive differentiation, consistency, and kitchen efficiency.

Whether your signature menu items have European, Asian, Middle-eastern, or Latin American roots, here are a few tools to make them even better and easier for you to create and serve.


Delicate sushi and sashimi grade fish requires a razor sharp blade for clean and effortless cuts. 

Mercer Culinary’s Asian Collection calls on the rich tradition of Japanese craftsmanship to provide unsurpassed cutting and slicing performance. 

This knife series delivers both form and function with a variety of sashimi, santoku, and specialty knives with razor sharp high-carbon German steel blades and a choice of wood or Santoprene® handles.

The Compact Vegetable Prep Machine CA-21 by Sammic provides a quick and consistent way to prepare fresh-made global favorites like guacamole and tzatziki sauce. 

Its compact size makes it ideal for smaller kitchens that need commercial-grade vegetable prep equipment for consistent production and efficiency in a practical size.

Protect your fresh-made guacamole from oxidation and browning with a Cambro Food Pan and Seal Cover that enable you to make fewer, larger batches without the waste. 

The powerful Seal Cover and Food Pan combination has been proven in both a laboratory and the field to improve yields and extend shelf life of produce and proteins up to 3 days.

Integrate custom ground meat into your secret meatball recipe for an Italian culinary adventure without the pricey airfare! The Edlund Edvantage EDVG Series Meat Grinder enables you to select and grind your own cuts of meat to make a one-of-a-kind, meatball that is fresh and delizioso. 

The Edvantage Meat Grinder’s heavy-duty anodized aluminum housing and fully exterior-mounted grinding components make for fast, easy clean-up.


There’s something so satisfying about biting into a perfectly toasted Italian panini, and its appearance is distinctively fun, too. Delicately crispy ridges on the outside, warm and tender bread on the inside, and mouthwatering meat and melted cheese in between make this one craveable sandwich—when it’s made right.

The MCG20 Multi Contact Grill from Hatco helps achieve the perfect panini with even heat distribution over the entire plated surface for uniform cooking, thermostatic control with a temperature range from 120°F-570°F for precision cooking and browning, and an Easy Clean System® ceramic coating for quick, easy release and cleaning. The grill comes with a fixed lower plate (choice of grooved or smooth) and grooved and smooth upper plates that are dishwasher safe and interchangeable for versatility.

Crepes are deliciously adaptable, lending themselves to sweet and savory dishes for virtually any daypart: breakfast, brunch, lunch, snacks, and desserts. The Hatco/Krampouz KCME Electric Crepe Maker provides even heat distribution across the surface of the plate for consistent cooking of this French delight. Ooh la la! 

Adjustable thermostatic control with a broad range of 120°F to 570°F gives you the flexibility to cook batters of varying consistencies and ingredients. With a stainless steel frame and cast iron griddle, the Hatco Crepe Maker is built for durability and reliable service.

The Gas-fired Tandoor Oven by Wood Stone is a high-tech, extremely durable update on an Old World classic. 

The Tandoor maintains temperature, even under the highest production scenarios. Available in 31″ or 35″ sizes with a round or square exterior, the Tandoor has an attractive quartz-composite top, stainless steel sides and includes a Skewer Index Ring. 

Built on casters for easy installation and mobility, the Tandoor also features a removable drip/debris pan for easy cleaning. Other modern improvements include an easy-to-manage gas flame and a pilot safety valve. It’s also ETL Listed for safety and sanitation.


Rice is a staple and menu foundation around the globe, but hold it the wrong way, and it’s no bueno! The HRDW-2U-1 Heated Rice Warming Drawer from Hatco uses a digital electronic temperature control to provide even heat throughout the holding cavity. All around insulation in this rice drawer warmer provides excellent energy efficiency, while keeping rice hot and at desired consistency for serving. 

The Hatco Warming Drawer conveniently holds rice in the same pot it’s prepared in, reducing pan-to-pan transfer time and labor. Heavy-duty drawers and telescopic drawer slides make it quick and easy to swap pans in and out of this efficient unit.


Oktoberfest may be a few months away, but hot, delicious pretzels are always in season. The TableCraft Pretzel Tower with Ramekin Holdersshows off hot pretzels in all their golden, salty glory and saves space at the same time. Its stainless steel tower is dishwasher safe and also provides a creative way to serve churros, onion rings, and even bagels. This handy serving piece also holds two 3 or 4-ounce TableCraft ramekins for those all-important condiments like spicy brown mustard (ramekins sold separately).

Have you ever noticed how a single order of fajitas can take over a table? The TableCraft Fajita Tower Kit solves the problem of fajita sprawl. 

This stylish solution literally takes fajita service to new heights with three separate tiers of serving in a modest 11.25” x 8.25” footprint.
