What are Industrial Cookers?

Cookers used in industrial kitchens are professional equipment designed for efficient and fast operation of large-scale food production and service businesses. This category includes machines with functions such as cooking, frying, boiling and boiling.
Cookers are one of the important equipment groups that make the products produced by chefs in industrial kitchens with their skills beautiful. The most important features that ensure the quality of the cookers are stability. It must offer fire or temperature to the extent set. In short, it must burn stably to the set extent. Thus, cooking processes are realised exactly as desired.
Cookers that offer unstable fire and temperature values create cooking effects at different times. This situation may cause some dishes to cook in 20 minutes one day, 23 minutes the next day, and 18 minutes another time. The same applies to frying and boiling. When appliances that offer more efficient temperatures cause food to cook or fry faster, burning can occur and the product is wasted. If cooking takes longer, this time the kitchen timing plan will be disrupted.

What to Consider When Choosing a Cooker?

Industrial cookers are usually collected in the same area. Hot, cold and neutral areas must be separated from each other. This issue is evaluated according to the size of the kitchen area. In large enough kitchens, cooking areas are located in the middle and take the form of an island. One of the most preferred methods is to line the cooking appliances on one wall. On the opposite side are the cold and neutral areas, where pre-cooking preparation work is carried out.
The points to be considered when choosing cooking appliances are as follows. The menu offered, i.e. the dishes to be produced in the kitchen, the amount of food to be produced, the quality and technical support of the product and energy efficiency.
If there is no frying product in the kitchen, there is no need to buy a fryer. If grilling is to be done, a large plate grill should be preferred according to its quantity. If an open fire industrial cooker is preferred, a 4-burner open fire cooker or a 2-burner cooker can be preferred. It is very important to determine these criteria before purchasing.
