Stainless steel pans can be purchased in many sizes generically and be arranged in countless configurations depending on need.

looks awesome. Glad you're happy. The only thing that worries me a bit about your policy is if the thing was all dinged up and didn't work very well you would have been stoked to pay the 600. I think your business plan should take some sort of depreciation factor into account for you and your wife to draw numbers from, instead of a flat 25%.

That's absurd.  Had the unit been in good shape but 8 years old instead of just one, $600 would have been stretching it.  Or worse, if the prep table had been beaten up, missing parts or not cooling, it would have been some else's problem--simple as that.  I walk away from bad deals all the time.  With this piece, however, I feel reasonably confident that there is plenty of life left and it should not need any servicing prior to being put into long-term 24/7 use.  Hopefully I didn't get burned but that is always a possibility and one of the risks of buying used appliances.  Time will tell.

I assume that the Mozza from TJ's is only for private use, right?

But it is great mozza, no question. You might be able to source it for your shop by checking with Cascade Dairy Products in Hayward who make the cheese for TJ's.

Oh, that's really good to know.  We are still at least 6 months from opening and are well into recipe optimization.  However, we don't have a commercial facility yet and still have to buy cheese at the supermarket.  I've experimented with quite a few mozz brands, but I like TJs by the best.  TJs at $5 a pound in one pound packages works fine for experimentation in our practice kitchen but it's not something that's usable for market.  But if I could find this same cheese in 20 lb blocks at wholesale pricing under a different name, then I'd be the first in line.

THANKS FOR THE TIP!!  :chef:

It is hands-down the best retail whole milk mozza I have tried and gives Grande a good run for their money. It's almost just as good.

Here's the info on Cascade Dairy Products:

This is a family forum. Use the Google Spanish-to-English translator and you will find what Pizza de Puta translates into.

English grammar, Spanish words.  It is backwards and means "pizza of the loose-moraled woman".  It is meant to be "he who will do anything for pizza".

"pizza of the loose-moraled woman"

Tom,

That is not what I got when I used the Google translator :-D. If I posted what I got, the forum's filter would have deleted or changed it.

You are correct Peter and you noticed if you go the other direction, Spanish to English (as spelled in this instance) one gets a very, ahem, obscene result in the translation.

And if you state it grammatically correct in Spanish (puta de pizza), you get the same result as it is now.  The translator is programmed to do this.

Well your Google translator must be different than mine. It will not reverse directly as you say: puta de pizza does not reverse to pizza de puta.  I find that quite common with translators.

Must be different versions, I have Win7 so that could affect the outcome. It's also very possible living in Mexico and my Windows being in Spanish that the translator works different. I know my google translator does not look like yours.
