10 Innovative Kitchen Tools For A Professional Restaurant
I have recently realized a new level of respect for the work that goes into creating delicious, attractive restaurant dishes. I have been on purpose to recreate recipes from an old Italian restaurant and find it easier said than done.
My journey of discovery opened up a world of new kitchen appliances for easy cooking. Some are too fancy and expensive for my basic kitchen, but there are ideal for professional environments.
Ten Great New Kitchen Tools That Can Be Applied To A Professional Kitchen
Timing is everything in a professional kitchen. You don’t want to be wasting time carefully peeling and chopping fruit and vegetables in prep when there are other important tasks. You don’t want to be messing around with leaves and juice when presenting a dish at the last minute. There are many interesting gadgets that restaurant kitchens can use to make the most of their fruit and veg and save time.
1. Pineapple Corer
The pineapple corer is one of those odd kitchen appliances that we all want to own once we see. Pineapple is often too annoying to bother with, but it is still an essential ingredient in many kitchens. This corer strips the skin and core without wasting the flesh.
2. Hand Juicer
The new hand juicer is one of those items where you can’t believe someone hadn’t already made it. Adding lemon juice to the top of a dish is tricky when it comes directly from the fruit. This device essentially turns the fruit into an atomizer.
3. Strawberry Stem Remover
A strawberry stem remover shouldn’t be a necessity, but it is. This device takes away the green top without damaging the fruit. It is quick, hassle-free, and brilliant.
Then there are those must-have kitchen tools for cooking meat to perfection and serving it beautifully. These devices have a range of applications in different types of kitchen.
Many of these kitchen aids are sold to BBQ lovers cooking outdoors.
However, the precision and quality involved mean that they are also perfect for professional kitchens.
4. Digital BBQ Tongs
A digital BBQ tongs and thermometer set is an attractive alternative to the usual meat thermometers that chefs use. Taking the meat’s temperature means that chefs can test if it cooked without cutting into it. A thermostat on a pair of tongs adds a functional element.
5. Roast Cutting Tongs
Roast cutting tongs are a gimmick that has more potential the more you look at them. These pliers grip a large piece of meat while providing the perfect cutting point. This is great in restaurant kitchens because it allows for cleaner cuts and uniformity.
Measurements also need to be precise in a professional kitchen. Some of the following gadgets may seem as though they belong in the home kitchen for easy cooking. However, they could have their place in small, fast-paced professional environments.
6. Digital Volumetric Spoon Scale
The digital volumetric spoon scale is one of those products that lives up to its name. It is both a soon and a scale, and it has a digital display. It is a little gimmicky, but it could be great for precise measurements for signature sauces.
7. Perfect Portions Digital Scale
The perfect portions digital scale is sold with an eye to at-home cooking, but it could also work in a restaurant kitchen. The idea is that the scale uses pre-programed data to determine the nutritional value of a portion of food. This could be useful in cafes with a healthy eating ethos.
It is amazing what you can get for the kitchen these days. There are so many kitchen appliances that I wouldn’t mind having but cannot justify. These final options are extravagant but impressive.
8. The Gripet
The Gripet is impractical at home but a must in a professional kitchen. These note-holders are the ideal way to display orders and messages at the line.
9. The Deglon Meeting Knife Set
The Deglon Meeting Knife Set is an intelligent storage option for professional kitchens that are short on space. The knives slot together, eliminating the need for a cumbersome block. It is also far too expensive for general use at $999.
10. UCE-9000 Turbo Water Ionizer
One item that I might get away with if it were cheaper is the UCE-9000 Turbo Water Ionizer. This device ionizes your water supply for safer, sterilized water and drinking water.
At $2795 it is one for restaurants that want their tap water to be perfect.
