The Depanneur Kitchen Rental
The Dep rents out its kitchen by the hour to people who need inspected, commercial kitchen space to prepare their food; it is available on weekdays.
(Note: on Mondays and Fridays, the kitchen is only available up to 3pm).
We also have a separate, dedicated rental kitchen for long-term rentals, but it is presently full; you can drop me an email if you are interested in being notified if space becomes available.
The Dep kitchen has generous prep space, sinks, two electric stoves with ovens, a commercial dishwasher, a professional panini grill, basic kitchen appliances like a blender, microwave, food processor, immersion blender, rice cookers, etc. as well as large collection of pots, pans, trays, bowls, knives, cutting boards, etc.
The kitchen does have some fridge and freezer space than can be used during a rental, but there is no on-site storage for equipment or ingredients – you need to bring your stuff, and take it with you when you go. You are responsible for cleaning up after yourself, taking out garbage/compost/recycling, and replacing/repairing anything you break.
Rental is $25 per hour +HST. If you wish to rent the kitchen on a regular/semi-regular basis, I can offer a small discount, but I ask that you have your Food Handler’s certificate and your own liability insurance.
If you’d like to rent the kitchen, please contact me with the dates you have in mind.
