Saving time is important in all areas of your business because saving time often saves money; in this context, a commercial kitchen is one of the most valuable places to increase efficiency. The more product you can process each time you book OAFVC’s commercial kitchen, the more you can potentially sell. Plus, you can book rentals according to your schedule. Try implementing some time-saving cooking tips used by professional chefs, commercial caterers, and household cooks.
Use These 3 Cooking Tips to Save Time
1. Mise en Place
This French culinary phrase literally translates as “putting in place.” It means setting out and preparing all the ingredients before you start cooking or processing, so you have everything you need ready and available within reach. This mise en place strategy, used in professional kitchens and restaurants, allows kitchen staff to serve hundreds of dishes on a busy Saturday night.
2. Use the Right Equipment and Use it Properly
Having access to the right commercial kitchen equipment and knowing how to use all the equipment properly is crucial to a quality product. At OAFVC, we have the equipment you need from well-balanced knives to our tilting skillet and kettle. We’ll also provide advice about which tools you need, and OAFVC staff will show you how to use everything. Don't worry about being proficient before you arrive. Even if you’ve never used a commercial kitchen before, we’ll teach you.
3. Clean as You Go
This is another restaurant cooking tip with a practical benefit. It keeps your surfaces clean and safe and frees up crucial work space. Plus, you’ll never run out of clean pots, pans, or utensils. Be sure to use designated bins for composting, recycling, and garbage disposal. Start fresh and empty bins as needed. Rinse dishes as you use them and place them in the dishwasher. For larger items, hand-wash and then leave to air dry.
