ONE-MAN OR INDIVIDUAL SHARWAMA MAKER
This option costs around ₦90,000 to ₦150,000 per unit but this may be less if you order it online from other countries where shipping charges are lower than those within the country itself – these particular models usually have a single stacker and one heating plate but some newer versions also allow users to make two shawarmas simultaneously out of one of them. The advantage is that the making process goes much faster as there is only one person working on it and also, a single-man sharwama maker is more affordable than other models.
MULTI-MAN OR GROUP SHARWAMA MAKER
