A kitchen receipt printer is an impact printer which prints in dot matrix and works with an ink ribbon to print texts. These printers are normally used in a kitchen or bar type environment for your kitchen staff to pick up orders.

Thermal printers don’t need ink or toner but instead they are sensitive to heat. The heat generating print head produce texts in black on the paper. These printers are generally just used in the front at the point of sale counter.
