Look closely next time you're watching TV and you might just catch a glimpse of one of our Temporary Portable Kitchens on the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 or Sky.

We regularly provide kitchen installations to studio and site locations throughout the country.

Examples include:

  • Temporary kitchens and catering equipment for cookery programs such as: Hairy Bikers, Ready Steady Cook and Marco Piere White.
  • Catering facilities for the cast and crew of the Top Gear roadshow race day featuring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. We have also provided units catering for the crew of ITV's Dancing on Ice.
  • One of our Sprinter units recently starred in the drama True Dare Kiss as a Takeaway Kitchen.

Whether it be for catering of cast and crew, provision of a kitchen and / or catering equipment for a cookery program or actually starring in a drama or soap, On-Site Kitchen Rentals Ltd have the necessary experience to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Greater Manchester Police

An excellent demonstration of the capability of our temporary events kitchen solutions.

This sizeable installation provided kitchen, dining and briefing facilities for the Greater Manchester Police during a Conservative Party Conference.

It was built to feed 3000 officers (working in shifts) on a daily basis during their policing of the event.

At the centre was a large marquee split into a dining and briefing area, both capable of comfortably holding 500+ officers.

Surrounding it were preparation, production and dishwash kitchens, along with storage and dedicated refrigeration containers.

All units were connected by weatherproof enclosed delivery corridors.

HM Prison Service

We have provided temporary kitchen facilities to a number of HM Prisons, including Kirkham, Haverigg and Glasgow, whilst their existing kitchen areas were refurbished.

These installations were used to feed up to 2000 inmates and staff over sustained periods of up to seven months at a time.

High security preparation was required for kitchens to be placed within the grounds, including the use of secure compounds for gas installation.

We used our Firesafe range of kitchens, featuring an all steel galvanised shell without windows (for obvious reasons).

Understandably, there are no photographs available for viewing!

Sainsbury's / Jamie Oliver

Sainsbury's recent winter advertising campaign featured Jamie Oliver on a mobile roadshow, giving cookery demonstrations in various locations.

On-Site Kitchen Rentals Ltd supplied and installed cooking and preparation equipment to an articulated branded trailer for use by Jamie Oliver and his team during the demonstrations.

Back-up kitchens were provided on each occasion for off camera production, cooking up to 40 high quality food lines from the Sainsbury's range.

Several polished TV adverts were created starring Jamie and showing the roadshow in action.

This one certainly makes us feel hungry:

The campaign was repeated over three years, travelling throughout the UK, with each town visit approximately a week apart.

For each location, Maxi Kitchens were delivered and installed the day before the event, with production starting at 5:30am ready for demonstrations from 2pm.

Sizzling Pubs / Mitchells & Butlers

A temporary kitchen providing 400 covers for the Hillfoot Pub, Liverpool during kitchen refurbishment.

The Multi Kitchen is an "all in one" solution giving busy chefs a self-contained unit with integrated dishwashing.

The kitchen contains everything they might require for regular food production including: range, grill, canopy, fryer, sink, wash hand basin, water heater, rack, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and prep tables.

Ideal for pubs, hotels, rest homes and similar sized catering requirements as a temporary kitchen during planned refurbishment or as an emergency kitchen following fire, flood or other incident.

This is a good example to demonstrate a tight installation with regards to accessibility.

Whatever space you have available, we will find a way to get our units into it!
