Holiday Safety Tips for Gen2 Ranges and More

The holidays are a busy time of year, and in such a fast-paced environment, chaos in the kitchen can lead to accidents.  While quality kitchen equipment like Gen2 Ranges can help you create delicious holiday meals with the best technology, be sure to remain diligent about kitchen safety.

Prevent Burns
With any range or stove, not just Gen2 ranges, always be wary of open flames.  Keep your sleeves rolled up and be mindful to turn off burners immediately after you are finished using them.  If you are stirring food on a range, stir away from your body.  With Gen2 ranges and other kitchen appliances, you can never be too careful.

Avoid Cuts
While it is important (not to mention more efficient!) to keep your knives sharpened, a sharp knife can be hazardous to clumsy fingers.  When slicing, dicing, chopping, and peeling, be careful!  Food cutters are a safe alternative, and have the additional benefit of slicing more food, faster.  You should also be wary of the blades on food processors and blenders.

Keep It Clean
Clean up any spills immediately after they happen.  A slick spot on the floor in front of one of your Gen2 ranges can quickly turn into an injury.  If you have your hands full and can’t get to it right away, warn others about the spill so they can avoid it.  Also, it never hurts to wear shoes with good traction.

Know Your Stuff
When working with kitchen appliances, from large Gen2 ranges to small Amana microwaves, it’s important to know your restaurant equipment.  Understand every setting, and fully repair any broken or malfunctioning equipment immediately.  It’s also good to know what kinds of foods you can and can’t use with certain pieces of equipment.  For example, click here for reasons you should never deep fry a frozen turkey.

Follow these tips and always exercise caution in the kitchen, and you can create successful holiday dishes for your customers.  Have a safe, happy holiday from all of us at ShortOrder!
