Our People

Kind words:

and here is what some of our customers say

I have worked with Catering Appliance for a number of years now and can honestly say it is one of the best companies I have ever worked with (if not the best).

The prices are fair and the service is speedy. The team is always friendly and they go the extra mile to make sure their service is perfect by always being happy and quick to answer any of my questions. In my opinion, it is the team who make this company great. I would highly recommend them!

Excellent selection of quality catering products. Very Competitive prices! Staff are always knowledgeable, approachable and friendly. 

One-stop shop for a great range of high end catering appliances. Been using JJ Martins for years. Never disappointed. Special thanks to Louise & Emma

N Khaja
Director, London Catering

I have worked with Catering Appliance Superstore for several years now, buying a wide variety of Catering Equipment for an Independent restaurant group. The Sales Team, Louise in particular, has always been really helpful with great communication and very competitive prices. The Customer Service team are always pro-active and supportive with any queries or when we have occasionally needed to make a call-out under warranty. I highly recommend Catering Appliance Superstore!”

Great advice, quality product, better priced than elsewhere. Can highly recommend. Our purchase was for household use.

After a debilitating illness from food poisoning, we wouldn't entertain anything less than a professional quality instrument. Spend a few more pounds and get a much better, long lasting professional product than you would find in Lidl.

Definitely recommend. Excellent telephone advice before buying and reliable delivery. The instructions for the rice cooker could be better though having used it I’m happy with it.

Excellent communication and always responded promptly to any questions I had and followed up to make sure I had the information I required. All equipment was delivered on time on the arranged dates. There was a manufacturer's issue, not the supplier, with one of the items supplied and this was resolved immediately without delay.

I would definitely recommend Catering Appliance Superstore, their prices were really good, staff were friendly and polite and well informed about their appliances and we received our goods well packed and in good condition plus the bonus of 3 years parts and labour included

This company are excellent and a pleasure to deal with. Real people who answer the phones not answer machines or virtual assistants. They put there customers first, they return calls, and emails and even when there is a problem through no fault of there own they get involved and sort any issues. Can’t praise them enough and will definitely be buying from them again. They are worth ever bit of a 5 star review.

Services that are out of our control

Like most commercial catering equipment suppliers out there, we use a number of 3rd parties to help fulfil our orders. These are primarily delivery companies, but can include suppliers that despatch goods directly from their warehouses and service engineers. We would love to be able to see every order out of the door to check that your goods are in perfect order before you receive them, but unfortunately this is not always possible and we hope that you will provide us with any feedback on problems that may arise from your dealings with these 3rd parties during the delivery of your product(s).

We continuously provide feedback to these companies and we are always looking to resolve any issues in a fast and professional manner so that you and your business are not disrupted.
