I run a small burger restaurant, with an output of around a 100 burgers a day. Nothing major but still big enough to warrant investing in equipment that improves standardization. Currently we're toasting the buns on the grill. I'm not happy with this method because of a number of reasons, but primarily because it sometimes leads to the buns getting burnt by being over grilled.
I'm now looking to buy a convenor bun toaster. For that i had a few question:
1) Is there any particular brand that you would recommend?
2) If i get a bun toaster that is marked at 1500 Watts. Does it mean that it will be consuming 1500 Watts whenever it is turned on(that is all the time, 13 hours a day!!)? Because i'll be using it for at least 13 hours a day and that could lead to really substantial electricity costs. Or would it only turn on when I put in the buns?
3) How long does the toaster take to turn heat up? If they don't take that long then i would only turn it on whenever i get the orders.
