Kitchen Equipment – A Key to Business Success

What makes the food great?

When it comes to producing and serving food that brings in customers, we tend to think of a skilful chef, and the freshness of the ingredients used. Of course, the chefs play a large role in creating the menu and tasty dishes and should be credited for their talent and ability. However, behind the scenes, the setup and equipment available in the kitchen are equally important. Imagine if the cooking grill is inadequate or not having the suitable utensils to work with. It will be challenging to produce quality dishes regardless of how skilful your master chef may be.

High quality, efficient, and adequate Commercial Kitchen Equipment is a key to helping Chefs, and your restaurant succeed. Here are some considerations when you’re planning your commercial kitchen:

Commercial Kitchen Must-Haves

Start with the basics and determine what the essential items are you must-have in your kitchen; usually, this includes:

  • Commercial Dishwashers
  • Utensils, cutlery and dishes
  • Commercial refrigerators and freezers
  • Stoves, grills and ovens

Bear in mind that all your equipment should be at a commercial-grade due to multiple workers’ heavy usage. The last thing you need is when something breaks down during the peak period in your restaurant. Ensure that the appliances meet all safety standards and are well maintained and serviced regularly to extend durability.

You might also want to consult with your chefs and kitchen staff to prepare a list of equipment for purchase and identify the priorities. If there are items that you can defer buying, you can save up your funds and make a more informed and better-quality purchase later on. Never rush into purchasing equipment that you might not need or are unsuitable later on.

 

Improving your Commercial Kitchen Workflow And Productivity

The commercial kitchen is probably one of the most intense workspaces around – High heat, sharp blades, vast amounts of equipment, confined space, multiple team members, short turnaround times and uncompromised quality.

Your workflow layout had better be good!

Below are some tips to help you reduce risk and error in your commercial kitchen.

Minimise Movements Per Task

Unnecessary distances travelled to achieve one task wastes time and energy, and it adds to the risk of injury. Allocate zones, for instance, and place all needed kitchen equipment in that zone. This will improve efficiency.

There are ranges of equipment designed with zone placement in mind, thereby making it easy for you to achieve an excellent commercial kitchen layout.

With modular designed equipment, you can mix and match your benchtops, grills, cooktops, ovens and salamanders appropriately, placing related equipment together. This prevents staff from having to run from one end to another, and it also reduces turnaround times.

Clear Pathways

As you are placing equipment into the kitchen, be strict about keeping pathways clear. This is important for the safety of your chef, support staff and team of servers.

Tight pathways force staff to slow down, or even stop their tasks, to move out the way. Very inefficient.

Keep the pathways clear of trip risks as well. No uneven flooring, loose tiles, poorly laid tiles, surprise stairs or cables crisscrossing the floor must be allowed.

Make sure your modular equipment has a straight line so that all the front edges are aligned, with no jutting corners. It’s safer, faster and less stressful.
