Regardless of what type of party or celebration you’re having, we all know that food is the cornerstone to every gathering. Satisfying a large group of people can be intimidating and expensive, but it doesn’t have to be! You can prepare delicious meals for many people without spending a lot of money or leaving anyone hungry. Tasty meals do not need to be complicated to be crowd pleasing. That’s why TheLAShop is here to help you with a few cooking ideas and appliances for huge groups. 

Get a Griddle    

Countertop griddles make it easy to cook for large groups because they offer large flat, heated surfaces so flipping and evenly cooking food is simple. Heavy duty griddles give cooks the opportunity to cook a myriad of food at the same time. Griddles are perfect for breakfast foods but also great for evenly searing meat and frying vegetables. 


Deep Fryer
