I was hoping for some advice. I'm considering a commercial range for my kitchen and need some information on the electrical.
(yes I know, call an electrician.) As far as general information though..
I'm looking at a Vulcan commercial range that has a 3 phase 240V hookup. Is this the same as a 240V dryer hookup? I think I don't quite understand the 3 phase aspect. I have learned that it is 3 "hot" wires that (somehow) combine to create the right voltage. What I don't understand is do I need a special main box, or will the 100amp one that I had put in a few years ago be sufficient. We currently have 240V for the dryer and our current range. The Vulcan stove however has 2 ovens, 6 burners, and a griddle, which is a lot more than the current stove. I had considered a gas range, but pricing is considerably different, and I can get a good deal on this electric used one. (Besides that I would have to convert NG to LPG if I went with gas.)
Any advice or suggestions would be helpful. I will most likely find an electrician to install but, would like to have an idea of the process before I get into it.
