Factors to Consider Before Buying a Shawarma Machine
So many South Africans love to eat shawarma which is why this business is thriving in South Africa today. If you want to purchase a shawarma machine, there are certain factors that you must first consider. We have outlined some of them below.
Design of the machine
As we mentioned above, there are different sizes of shawarma machines. Your choice of design will depend on what you want to use the machine for. If you are using the machine for personal purposes, then a small single-burner machine will suffice. However, if you are going to start a shawarma business, you need a minimum of two burners.
There are locally fabricated and foreign-made shawarma machines. Most shawarma vendors in South Africa prefer locally fabricated machines. This is because they are more affordable and far more flexible. You can always alter the height, capacity, depth, and width depending on your business.
Material and durability
Nobody wants to spend excessively on a machine and in a short while have to purchase another one. This is why you need to be sure of the materials used in making the machine. The material used in the construction determines the durability of the machine.
We suggest that you purchase a machine that is made from food-grade stainless steel or aluminum. The second option is a lot more affordable. Both materials are durable and should give you a shelf life of about 4 to 5 years.
There are two major heat sources for shawarma machines. They can either get their heat from gas or electricity. In some rare cases, the machines can work with both. Make sure that you check this before you purchase the machine. Which one suits your purposes better?
This is the final consideration. How much are you willing to spend on your machine? Note that you have a lot of other things to spend on if you are starting a new business. Therefore, you must create a balance between the cost of the machine and starting your business.
That’s it for the prices of shawarma machines in South Africa. In the final section, we gave a breakdown of the factors to consider before purchasing one.
