Having the right cooking hire for your kitchen is essential if your event or occasion is to go smoothly. Whether using electricity or LPG as fuel, we've sourced the right kitchen hire equipment for you.
Catering equipment such as cooking hire is the cornerstone of what we do at Expo Hire. We’ve made it our aim to source equipment which can be relied upon even in the busiest kitchen.
What cooking hire is there on offer?
We have a diverse cooking hire range, which is fuelled by both LPG and electricity, designed for inside and outside use. When sourcing our kitchen hire we've made every effort to get industry standard equipment, so that our customers have the utmost peace of mind. We work with venues throughout the whole of the country, providing catering equipment hire not only for one-off events but to help cover breakdowns and issues.
All of our LPG equipment can be run on LPG bottles with standard bayonet fittings, while our electric equipment can all be run from a standard UK three pin plug. However, we do recommend checking the wattage of electric equipment as it can trip extension leads and generators. LPG products are designed for use outside, where they can provide lots of power without fear of tripping generators or extension leads.
Oven Hire in the United Kingdom
The most frequently hired range within our catering equipment offering is oven hire. We rent ovens out to all kinds of venues across the whole of the country, from comercial kitchens where a breakdown has occurred to weekend pop up events. Unlike many of our competitors, we continuously source new ovens for hire to ensure that we offer the best quality at all times.
We have both LPG and electric ovens available. Our LPG six burner ovens are suited to outside events where a lot of power is required such as pop up kitchens and large outdoor events. These ovens for hire run off LPG bottles, which we hire out separately. Connection is relatively simple to do but we do recommend that any customer who does not feel comfortable hooking these up to utilise the services of a Gas Safe engineer.
The electric Blue Seal Turbofan Ovens for hire are best used in indoor kitchens due to the large amount of power that they draw. These ovens are perfect for any kitchen that needs to bake, roast or grill lots of items, and are gastro tray compatible. We rent ovens like this frequently, and in the summer demand can be particularly high; as availability is limited we recommend booking early.
Our other Kitchen Hire available
Ovens are not the only items we have available in our cooking hire selection. We have a wide range of catering equipment hire available from barbecues to toasters, and griddles to grills.
One of our most popular products are LPG Fryers. Our LPG fryers for hire are great for pop up kitchens outdoors and offer lots of power and capacity which is just not achieveable by a comparable electrical product. These often go to streetfood stalls at food markets in the United Kingdom, where they can be used safely and with confidence.
There is also a selection of other equipment available for more specialised cooking such as rice cookers, rotisserie ovens and conveyor toasters.
Do you need to order gas?
All of our LPG equipment is supplied without gas bottles. Please order separately if you need them
- 13kg LPG Bottles are suitable for patio heaters
- 19kg LPG Bottles are suitable for all other LPG equipment we stock
- 30mm wrench required to attach bottles to equipment - can also be hired separately
- If using your own gas bottle, please make sure the connector is compatible. We use a standard bayonet fitting on all of our LPG products.
- If unsure about connecting bottles to equipment utilise a Gas Safe Engineer
What safety precautions do I need to take?
At Expo Hire UK, we stock, supply and hire LPG equipment for events and exhibitions to all major venues across the country. All of our equipment is supplied with a hose and regulator, enabling you to connect them directly to the standard bayonet fitting on your LPG gas cylinder. If you are not comfortable connecting the gas appliance, please consult a certified gas engineer as our delivery team will be unable to connect or set up any equipment for you.
When ordering from Expo Hire, you can be sure you'll receive high-quality items that are in good condition. We ensure this by performing a thorough inspection and testing prior to each delivery, along with regular testing and certification from a Gas Safe engineer (evidence of this can be provided upon request, once your order has been confirmed). So, look no further than Expo Hire UK.
At Expo Hire, we supply and deliver electrical equipment for hire to all major venues across the country. Prior to delivery, we thoroughly clean, inspect and PAT test all appliances, and evidence of this can be provided if needed. Please Note: Our electric products are fitted with a standard three-pin UK plug. You may also need to check the limitation of the wiring circuit at your venue, to ensure it will not become overloaded.
Do kitchen hire items need to be cleaned?
Worried about cleaning catering equipment hire after your occasion or event? If time is a factor or you know you’ve got too much else to de-rig, then our "send it back dirty" service is what you need.
Catering equipment can be hard to clean after a hire period of full usage – especially ovens and barbecues. Rather than breaking out the scourer, for 25% of the hire price you can leave it all to us. Just wipe off any food debris or liquid and we’ll sort the rest.

No need to worry about security deposits
There’s no need to worry about a damage deposit when placing an event hire order with Expo Hire. Instead, we run a free minor damage waiver scheme to cover minor damage or loss, so you don’t need to worry if you break the odd glass or plate. We do charge for excessive or negligent loss or damage at 10x the hire price. Please check our terms and conditions for full details.
How delivery and collection works
Working out delivery costs is easy with Expo Hire; simply use our carriage calculator to find which of our branches is near to you. Tap your postcode in and it will confirm not only whether we cover that postcode or not, but also which of our 11 branches is closest to you and the cost for delivery from that branch, as well as the list of possible extra charges. Heavy furniture like sofas or equipment like large fridges will require a second person in the van and this will be added in the checkout.
Once you have filled your basket and confirmed your delivery dates and postcode in the checkout, we will show you an itemised cost for delivery so you know exactly what you’re paying for before you place your order.
Want to know when your delivery is coming? You can track your driver using our real time maps on the day of delivery and collection. Simply enter your postcode and order number into our order tracking page and find out when our driver will be with you. You can also use the link we send you by automated text.
