What our customers say

Still curious? Here's some common questions.

Can I purchase restaurant equipment from SilverChef?

The commercial kitchen equipment on our website is only available to rent.

Our Rent-Try-Buy solution allows you to pay for the equipment in manageable, weekly amounts that protect your business's cash flow.

If after trying the equipment it proves to be exactly what you're after, you can buy it at any time. (You'll just need to give us four weeks' notice of your intention to buy,)

(You can also upgrade the equipment at any time or, after 12 months, continue renting it or send it back to us if it's no longer suitable.)

Can I physically inspect the equipment before ordering it?

The commercial kitchen equipment advertised on our website can only be viewed online; we do not have bricks-and-mortar showrooms.

This digital business model enables us to minimize our overheads and, in turn, offer our customers competitively priced restaurant equipment to rent, try and buy.

Our brand-new equipment is sourced from reputable and trusted manufacturers and, for extra peace of mind, generally comes with a one- to five-year parts-and-labor warranty.

If you have any questions about any of our equipment, please contact us.

Why does SilverChef operate only in Washington and Oregon?

SilverChef, which founded in Australia more than 35 years ago, launched in the United States in 2023.

We've also been operating in Canada since 2013 — our headquarters there are in Vancouver.

So, for our first foray into the US, we're best able to serve the Pacific Northwest, specifically Washington and Oregon.

We look forward to expanding our product offering to additional states in the near future.
