19 Dec Industry Focus: Restaurants & Food Service
Cooks and sous chefs across the U.S. are chopping, prepping, measuring, and pouring ingredients right now in preparation for tonight’s dinner service or tomorrow’s deliveries. With the demands of running a restaurant or commercial kitchen, it’s essential to have the right tools at your fingertips to ensure that high standards are met every day.
Best Gloves for Food Prep
Using gloves in the foodservice industry is now commonplace. Each city, county or state has different requirements, but nearly all mandate some sort of glove for food-service employees in one form or another. For some districts, gloves must be worn by those assembling sandwiches in the deli, for others, it’s handling raw food on the line. Some bartenders are now required to wear gloves if they handle ready-to-eat foods (including the citrus twist in your cocktail). It’s easy to pick up a case of something cheap, but we all know you often get what you pay for.
Accu-Tech gloves are made of nitrile, a sturdy material that’s less prone to cuts or punctures. Nitrile is the glove material of choice for the food industry because it’s also less likely to cause the allergies associated with latex but is resistant to many of the same substances. Accu-Tech gloves are also powder free meeting food contamination prevention requirements.
Measuring Pitchers and Scoops for Restaurants
If you’re already working hard on using locally-sourced ingredients and developing creative concepts for your diners or meal delivery plan users, everything else should be simple. At Axiom Products, we have a wide array of pitchers, measuring cups, scoops, and containers designed to provide precise pouring and accurate measurements, both essential in keeping your food prepared meticulously every time.
Food Costs in Restaurants
We know the small stuff is just as important when it comes to creating a quality meal. Where restaurant owners don’t want to trim the fat is buying inferior products. From purchasing top-notch ingredients to upgrading to the best equipment, spending to get a great result is often inevitable to be the best at what you do. Cooks need gloves that will stand up to what you dish out and measuring cups and pitchers that don’t discolor or take on smells from ingredients.
Black Gloves for Cooking
Barbecue lovers have seen cool-looking black gloves on the hands of their favorite pit masters at competitions, on TV, and in restaurants for the last few years. Gloves for BBQ masters are often paired with cotton gloves to absorb heat while moving food off the grill, and black nitrile gloves to protect the cotton from getting wet – while retaining dexterity. This combination works perfectly for pulling pork or slicing up a brisket, and they are compatible with the messy business of barbecue.
Measuring Cups and Pitchers for Restaurants
Making the perfect sauce? You know it’s all about consistent flavors to get customers coming back for more. Whether our scoops, cups, and pitchers are being used for measuring for sauces and rubs or flours and grains, using the right tools is essential in creating reliable recipes. Axiom Products are built to withstand the stringent requirements of every restaurant or commercial kitchen across the country.
Our Accu-Pour measuring products feature debossed markings for stress-free measurement while easy-grip handles provide comfort and stability (even with a gloved hand), and a versatile spout offers excellent pouring control. These raised graduations won’t fade over time, and the open-bottom handle allows these pitchers to be stacked and stored in limited space. Since we know it’s essential to keep glass away from your cooking area, all of our Accu-Pour products are made of high-quality, durable food-grade polypropylene.
With so many variables contributing to a restaurant’s success, accuracy in measuring and pouring or safety in food handling shouldn’t be ones that keep you up at night. Because restaurants owners know that chefs literally hold their establishment’s food cost in his or her hands, it’s important to deliver quality gear for the whole line to use. Axiom Products can help. We’ve got the tools you need to help keep your kitchen running like clockwork.
Axiom Products works with some of the finest suppliers in the United States to bring our top-of-the-line measuring products and safety tools to restaurants, and we would love to tell you more.
