Maintain the Cleanliness of Kitchen Tools & Equipment

Cleanliness

To some, it may seem easier to fix things when they break. However, there's a reason why many well-prepared and successful people say "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." The truth is well-maintained kitchen equipment is a key component to keeping your kitchen running smoothly. Cleaning frequently keeps your kitchen easier to manage and meets regulations for surprise inspections, but the care and maintenance of kitchen equipment also keeps your guests and employees safer. A few steps that you can take to ensure your commercial kitchen equipment is being properly maintained include:

  • Create a schedule for sanitization and cleaning
  • Ensure all necessary staff are familiar with equipment manuals
  • Schedule regular maintenance with a skilled professional
  • Take care of repairs sooner than later

Benefits of Maintaining Kitchen Equipment

One of the most stressful things that can happen in a commercial kitchen is when something breaks down unexpectedly. In fact, if this has ever happened to you, just the thought is likely enough to make you want to keep it from ever happening again. The more things you can have peace of mind about in your kitchen, the better.

Preventive maintenance is one of the most effective steps you can take towards keeping your kitchen running, increasing profitability, and preventing your business from coming to a sudden halt.

The benefits of regular kitchen equipment maintenance include:

  • Reducing the risk of injury and incident: When your kitchen equipment is properly maintained, clean, and works the way it was intended, you reduce the risk of preventable accidents to your staff. Achieving a safer work environment may look good for regulations and safety codes but it is also incredibly important to keep your establishment safe overall. For example, by putting a maintenance schedule in place for your ventilation system, stove, and range, you can greatly reduce the risk of fire, which keeps your equipment, workers, and guests much safer.
  • Increasing the life expectancy: When your kitchen equipment is maintained on a regular basis and cleaned properly, it will last longer. Although it may take longer to clean it thoroughly and many of your employees are tempted to get out the door faster after a long day of work, this can actually be counter-productive. Kitchen equipment has proven to need replacement earlier than necessary because of lack of proper cleaning and care according to manufacturer guidelines.

    When followed, manufacturer guidelines and manuals offer you and your staff the best chance of keeping your equipment working for as long as possible.
  • Reduced operational costs: Investing in regular cleaning and maintenance keeps your day-to-day costs down as your equipment does not require as much gas or electricity to operate. If you notice one of your utility bills has been higher than usual without an increase of use, this could be due to a piece of commercial kitchen equipment being improperly maintained.
  • Improved service and quality: Whether you own a major hotel chain, a fast-food restaurant, or a small café, the food you put out should be consistent and without contamination. The more you leave up to chance, such as a stove that doesn't work properly or a grill that hasn't been cleaned, the more likely you are to have a guest who gets sick or sends food back. Clean, well-maintained equipment results in properly cooked food and hopefully, happy customers.
