Choosing OEM: Keepin' It Real is the Deal

Real OEM Parts

OEM? What’s That?

Real Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) foodservice equipment parts are essential in the foodservice business. Parts from the manufacturer are guaranteed to fit and function to exact equipment specifications, which translates to safety, reliability, efficiency and warranty protection. Experimenting with parts that aren’t OEM could save you a little money now, but it may end up costing a lot more later…and we’re not just talking about dollars here.


Have you ever heard anyone say, “Yeah, I don’t care about safety”? We hope not. Here at Parts Town, safety is our top priority. That includes our team, our customers and the products we sell. Genuine OEM parts have been tested by the manufacturer with your specific piece of equipment. You can feel confident allowing your staff, your guests and even yourself to use equipment powered by the exact parts required.


Your foodservice equipment is meant to last for years with ultra-heavy use. That reliability counts on the best parts used to make them run. Only real OEM parts are made to work perfectly with your equipment to keep your business –large or small– booming. For example, you could end up replacing the same part over and over, and that’s quite an outlay of cash. If you use even one non-OEM part in your equipment, it could damage other expensive components. We think it’s best to not take that risk. Here’s an in-the-field story about OEM reliability, just in case you need more proof.


When using non-OEM parts, your equipment may overuse energy supplies, costing more money down the road and draining your resources. Fitting your equipment with genuine OEM parts ensures your equipment runs at peak functionality for longer.

Warranty Protection

If your equipment is under warranty, using non-OEM parts could void your coverage. Invest in a real OEM part or buy a whole new piece of equipment? Hmmm…tough choice. We recommend the genuine OEM part.
