Any good bartender can tell you that having the right tools handy can make or break your service. Whether it’s the right kind of shaker, strainer, zester, opener, or peeler, these tools help the restaurant’s drink-making staff concentrate on keeping guests happy with a continuous flow of tasty cocktails. But what tools does every bartender need—and, even more importantly, how are they used?
As a restaurant owner or manager, one of the most important items you can invest in and ensure the proper use of are the commercial-grade utensils used by your kitchen staff to cook, prep, clean, store, and serve food. When you take the time to source and store your commercial kitchen utensils properly, it can go a long way in improving the efficiency of your restaurant’s kitchen, enhancing food quality and consistency, keep your staff and guests safe, and even saving your restaurant money.
Running an efficient commercial kitchen is an essential element of helping your foodservice business thrive. When your kitchen staff has a smooth and steady process, food reaches tables quicker, remains hotter, and just tastes better—your guests, in turn, are happier about their experience and more apt to return and recommend your restaurant to their family and friends.
