Top tips for keeping your hog roast machine in tip top condition!

Here at Hog Roast Machine, we are very proud of the quality, durability and reliability of our hog roast machines, which, as we’re sure you are already aware, are all designed and manufactured at our own workshop in northwest England. Like any other piece of equipment though, our hog roast machines do need to be taken care of if you want them to continue operating at their peak capacity for many years to come.

If you want to keep your hog roast machine in great working order, and the stainless-steel panels looking as shiny as they were in the showroom, there are a few important thing you should do to give your hog roast machine a bit of regular TLC.


It is the nature of hog roast catering that we find ourselves venturing off the beaten track, driving up steep hills and along bumpy narrow roads to various outdoor venues. This means that our equipment can get a bit bashed about in the back of the van if it isn’t positioned well. Taking a few moments to be mindful when lifting your machine in and out of the van and making sure it doesn’t have too much room to move around once you get on the road, can make all the difference.


Hog Roast MachineRegular and thorough cleaning of your machine is essential for hygiene, performance and appearance. Frequently wiping down your machine to keep it free of food particles and grease using either a sponge or a metal scourer during food service, followed by a deep clean after service will prevent it from becoming clogged and tarnished. Sanding the panels every so often will bring back your machine’s original shine and make it look as good as new. This can be quite a lot of work but well worth the effort.
