If you work in a bakery that specializes in frosted cakes and other similarly delicious treats, you know that it doesn't take long for that frosting to start to look a little droopy. That's why it's a good idea to refrigerate your cakes until the time of sale.
A massive urban farming project has been proposed for the city of Detroit's Eastside in an effort to revitalize the city and make use of the more than 100,000 vacant plots of land that are currently vacant, reports The Detroit News. While many feel that the initiative has the potential to bring thousands of jobs and hundreds of new businesses to the area, residents remain suspicious and doubtful of the project's success.
Walk-in units are a great investment for any restaurant or establishment that serves food. Not only do they provide ample space, but they save you money by allowing you to purchase freezable items in bulk quantities.
Water is the most important element on the plant. The human body is made up of over 90 percent water. Seventy percent of the Earth's surface is covered with water. Humans depend on it, as do plants and animals. Unfortunately, not all water is fit for drinking, that's why you should always use a water filter in conjunction with your commercial ice machine and faucet tap.
When you get a cup of ice from the freezer in your kitchen, you probably don't think about the meticulous precautions that are built in to sterilize frozen water. Besides the fluoride and other chemicals added to the water, many commercial ice machines have filters that ensure the purity of the final product. However, restaurants must educate their employees on how to properly handle ice.
Americans love their carbohydrates. The starchy foods fill up their stomachs and keep them coming back for more. Many restaurants serve bread before their meals to give their guests a chance to review the menu without letting hunger take full control. Establishments with restaurant equipment that can slice bread automatically may be at an advantage.
Refrigerators revolutionized food storage. They come in all shapes and sizes and are used in homes, warehouses and restaurants. Many restaurants use large walk in refrigerators to store much of their food both because of the space it has inside and the ease of retrieval it allows. Still refrigeration wasn't always as advanced as it is today.
There are many different reasons why people choose to abstain from eating meat. Certain religions forbid the consumption of animals out of respect for ancient doctrine while some people simply look to avoid health problems that may be caused by excessive quantities of meat. A successful establishment will keep all of these dietary needs in mind and use restaurant equipment to provide vegan and vegetarian alternatives to popular animal-related cuisine.
Anyone who has ever been to a restaurant can testify to the fact that what is put on top of a meal is important. Pasta without enough marinara sauce, mashed potatoes without gravy, and bread without butter just don't live up to the hype. In order for chefs to provide their guests with the proper amount of sauce, they need to have their kitchen stocked with the necessary restaurant equipment.
Restaurants store a variety of goods in their commercial refrigerators. Purchasing food in bulk allows kitchen staff members the opportunity to cook meals without the fear of an ingredient running out, which may make it necessary to have several refrigerators on hand, or at least one with a sufficient size capacity.
Plastic restaurant equipment has many physical advantages, not to mention its reduced cost. Diners, cafes and other establishments should consider replacing old cutting boards with new ones to capitalize on this trend.
Americans have an affinity for burritos. The pockets of rice, beans, meat, vegetables and sauce make even the most diet-conscious individual grow weak at the knees. Small restaurants that specialize in burritos can cater to larger crowds by using innovative restaurant equipment in their kitchens. Having the ability to prepare rice (a key component in burritos) quickly and efficiently to use throughout the business day can help chefs serve their guests in a more timely manner.
Running a successful restaurant is more than just good decor or profitability. Everything from food costs to wait time can effect the perception of your eatery. Food quality is often the most important part of making people see your restaurant as the best, but to make quality food, you need the right equipment.
In order to maintain a hygienic establishment and cut down on wasted food, it's important for restaurant owners to ensure that their walk in coolers and freezers are well organized. When this doesn't happen, cross-contamination can occur, older items can be pushed to the back (where they'll no doubt expire before they're used) and cooks can waste precious service time looking for the items that they need.
Restaurants need good storage solutions to stay in business, as everything that is stored in the kitchen directly relates to positive customer interactions. If food goes bad while in storage and is served to guests, many negative consequences are sure to follow. Restaurants can eliminate the chances of serving spoiled food by purchasing the necessary restaurant equipment, such as a Beverage Air commercial freezer.
For too long, cupcakes were viewed as inferior cousins to cake. They were smaller, had less frosting and were mostly featured at preteen birthday parties. Fortunately, the wider population recently discovered the value of cupcakes. Of course, they are smaller, but they can pack a bigger taste, and traditional frosting can be substituted with a variety of other ingredients.
If you're currently using a reach-in refrigerator and freezer unit and find that this is a problem for you, you may want to consider investing in a walk-in cooler and freezer. Walk-in units provide more space, and it's easier to keep things organized and visible than it is with a packed reach-in unit.
Restaurant owners need the necessary equipment to preserve perishable food. Commercial refrigerators are worth the investment, as they help maintain the ingredients that are used for popular meals on a menu.
An ice machine is a significant investment for any establishment, whether it's a restaurant, hotel or office. If you'd like to see your investment pay off and be able to go on presenting your patrons with chilled offerings, it's important that you stay on top of the machine's maintenance and repair.
