How Certified Used Works

SilverChef’s range of Certified Used commercial kitchen equipment comes from businesses like yours, who have returned or upgraded used commercial kitchen equipment through our Rent-Try-Buy® product. We offer the highest quality pre-owned restaurant equipment at an affordable price. Our range is less than 18 months old and has undergone a unique six-stage reconditioning process, so it’s as good as new.

Why choose SilverChef Certified Used?

Quality commercial kitchen equipment, cheaper

Restaurant equipment can be expensive and ties up capital that could be used to grow your business. SilverChef Certified Used offers you second hand commercial kitchen equipment at a fraction of the price – and it comes fully refurbished. Why buy new, when you can get the same output at a reduced price?



Eligible for the industry’s most flexible finance solution

Rent-Try-Buy® is a 12-month rental agreement that lets you try your commercial kitchen equipment – and still have the option to buy, return or upgrade later. Enjoy unrivalled flexibility for all your restaurant equipment needs.



Our unique six-step refurbishment process

Step 1: Used commercial kitchen equipment is returned

Our Rent-Try-Buy® product enables customers to access brand new commercial kitchen equipment on a 12-month rental agreement. At the end of the term, they have the option to return the equipment to us if they don’t need it anymore. And when they do, we get an almost-new piece of restaurant equipment to offer through our Certified Used program.




Step 2: It's professionally cleaned and polished

Whether you’re buying new commercial kitchen equipment, or second hand commercial kitchen equipment; you want it to be sparkling clean. Our dedicated clean team makes sure the equipment is spotless before it moves to the next stage.



Step 3: It’s run-tested, including electrical test and tag

Safety is of critical importance in any commercial kitchen. That’s why our qualified electricians carefully test and tag all our second hand commercial kitchen equipment, to ensure it’s completely safe and fully functional.



Step 4: Any damaged or worn parts are replaced

When you buy second hand commercial kitchen equipment online or at auction, there’s no guarantee that all its working parts are – well – working! With SilverChef Certified Used commercial kitchen equipment, our qualified service technicians carefully check and replace all worn or damaged parts with brand new. This means you can have confidence that your restaurant equipment will go the distance.



Step 5: Final check by quality assurance officer

Our clean team, electricians and technicians are highly qualified and extremely dedicated. But we still want to make sure they didn’t miss anything. So, all Certified Used commercial kitchen equipment gets a final check from our quality assurance officers before it can be rented or purchased by you.



Step 6: Your equipment is delivered to your door, with warranty

Your Certified Used commercial kitchen equipment arrives spotlessly clean and shrink-wrapped just like new. Plus, we’re so confident your equipment is in perfect working order, we’ll give you three months’ free warranty.
