But there's good news for chefs and owners looking for some cheap gear. All they need to do is wake up early on January 5 and bring cash to the auction house. Not for nothing, but they're letting go a double-oven, ten top Vulcan and a two-burner Wolf mini (among other things), and my guess is that they'll go both fast and cheap.-- Jason Sheehan
