Commercial kitchens differ from residential kitchens in several ways. They are designed to handle large food production and meet strict food safety guidelines. Most commercial kitchens use professional equipment, often made from stainless steel, for easy cleaning and sanitation. Professional refrigeration equipment is required as well, as it is designed to quickly transition from temperature levels where food borne illnesses are most likely to grow.
Industrial stoves have more intense heat output than residential ranges, with the capacity to cook in volume. Dishwashing equipment should be able to reach temperatures hot enough to sanitize, or have multiple sink compartments to wash, rinse and sanitize by hand.
Successful commercial kitchens are planned and designed with easy work flow in mind. There should be sufficient space between appliances for employees to seamlessly navigate the kitchen; and there should be enough counter space for efficient prep and assembling processes. Also, they need different cooking stations set up to deal with specific tasks: prep, cooking, baking, frying, grilling and catering areas, for example.
Whether your commercial kitchen is in your home or in a separate facility, it’s a good idea to design it so you can complete your work as efficiently as possible. Regardless of whether you’re making a few batches of cookies for your family reunions or catering to large events, make sure your commercial kitchen has all you need to make it a successful one.
