At Cafeideas, we believe that food safety falls into two very distinct categories. Number one, you always want to make sure that you're using the right equipment and techniques to help keep the people preparing food safe from harm in an admittedly dangerous environment - the commercial kitchen. Number two, you always want to make sure that the food itself has been prepared to the best of your ability and is safe from things like contaminants. We're proud to offer a wide range of different types of equipment that will allow you to do all of this and more.

Kitchen Safty

Hot Tips

In any commercial kitchen, you'll always be working around a large number of different pieces of equipment that generate heat at any given moment. One of the keys to preparing these types of meals as safely as possible involves making sure to use items that not only load in the front but return in the front as well. Griddles and Buffet Toasters are one such item, for example. You load bread into the front and toast is returned in much the same way, making sure that none of your employees ever have to reach over a hot piece of equipment in order to quickly retrieve a food item - potentially burning themselves in the process.

Blades and Sharps

Another thing that you'll want to keep in mind in order to prepare food safely involves a series of best practices that you'll use when working around items containing blades and other elements. Grinders, meat mincers and prep machines all need safety awareness when in use. Lettuce Choppers are another such example. While it may seem easy to use, the blades themselves are actually very sharp and could potentially cut an employee if they're not careful.

What makes our lettuce choppers so special, however, is that they contain a number of features that guarantee the safest possible operation at all times. They offer incredibly smooth push and pull operations, for example, making sure that the user's hands never have to go anywhere near the blades themselves in order to get the job done properly. The blades are also scalloped, which will allow them to perform more accurate cuts on lettuce and other food items without putting the operator at risk. The all stainless steel constructions are also incredibly easy to disassemble and clean, creating a much safer situation for everyone involved.

At Cafeideas, we're incredibly proud of the fact that these are just a selection of the high quality commercial kitchen equipment items that will allow you to prepare food safely and securely at all times. We're always adding catering equipment items to our inventory on a regular basis, so be sure to check back often to see what we have in store. We also stock a fantastic range of café and restaurant furniture to create the perfect ambiance for your dream restaurant.
