Cooking and Kitchen Thermometers Buying Guide

Professional kitchens cannot operate without thermometers. Thermometers are the only way to accurately measure temperatures to ensure food safety but are also key for food preparation and monitoring temperatures in fridges, freezers and dishwashers. But there isn’t one type of thermometer that can do everything. Depending on your business, a selection of kitchen and cooking thermometers for accurate temperature readings is necessary to keep your operation in the safe zone.

Food Pan Buying Guide - Stainless Steel

Food pans, inserts, steam table pans, hotel pans, counter pans, service pans...What you call them depends on where you trained and who trained you, but they all mean the same thing. Designed to hold food hot for service in steam tables these pans are also used for baking, roasting and poaching.  Perforated versions are useful for draining, steaming and quickly cooling down foods. Because of their multiple sizes and ability to move from fridge to prep line, to holding cabinet and on to service, their use has permeated commercial kitchens.
