A kitchen display system, or KDS, is a digital screen that shows the orders in a commercial kitchen. It is basically a replacement for traditional handwritten orders.

In the food industry, KDS is the industry's most durable all-in-one kitchen display system (KDS).

The cost of a KDS varies as per individual requirements. Some ask for multiple features to manage their big venture, and a few need fewer features to manage their restaurants. Since it’s a customizable solution for the food industry, its cost cannot be calculated randomly. Still, you will find some fixed-cost products ranging from $799 to $899 with an additional monthly KDS software plan fee of approximately $25 per device, but we do not recommend going for any such investments without evaluating your needs.
