If you're running a restaurant that serves pizzas, whether they make up just a few menu items or the actual menu in its entirety, investing in a commercial pizza prep table is one of the wisest investments you can make. Though the initial cost is high, you must look at the purchase as a smart investment that will pay off down the road. Our prices on MissionRS.com are the most competitive on the web and we want to help you make a sound choice that will suit your business needs both now and as your business grows in the future. Here are some advantages to investing in a Pizza Prep Table and some of the differentiating factors you should pay attention to before settling on a unit.Advantages
- The Refrigerated Base & Undercounter Storage provides an idealic home for bulk ingredients and other pizza prep necessities
- Raised Ingredients Rails contain bins featuring all of your most popular pizza toppings so you can assemble the pizza with maximum speed and efficiency.
- The convenience of a worktop/cutting board that is built to fit the width of a pizza makes assembling the pie (and prepping the ingredients!) an easy process- one that is constructed with convenience in mind!

The amount of demand and product you are putting out on a daily and weekly basis is going to determine how big of a unit you need. Our Pizza Prep Tables range from simple 1 door units with 6 ingredient pans and 11.4 cubic feet of storage area to one of our large, 8 door units with 15 ingredient pans and 43.9 cubic feet of storage, for example! Some of our more popular models consist of a medium size that have 2-3 doors of undercounter storage, 8-10 ingredient bins, and a middle-of-the-road storage capacity. Knowing how much food product you'll be needing to store to meet the demands of your customers is going to determine what size you should invest in. So if you run a pizzeria or a restaurant where pizza is the star item on the menu, investing in a larger unit is probably a better investment, whereas a smaller, 1-3 door unit might be better for establishments that do a smaller output and scale. You'll want to make sure you know exactly how much space you have in your kitchen so that you buy a unit that isn't overbearing or jammed.
2. CONFIGURATION All of our Pizza Prep Tables online have a slightly different configuration. Depending on the unique storage needs of your work stations in the back of the house, our pizza prep tables come with swing doors that open up into storage, while they also come with drawers, meaning they pull out into sectioned, refrigerated storage. Many of our units feature a combination of swing doors and drawers so you can have the best of both worlds. Here's one example of the differenes you will find: pizza prep table manufacturers, including True and Turbo Air. When you buy a unit from any of these manufacturers, you're getting quality stainless steel construction and a dependable addition for your kitchen that will stand the test of time.
Cast Iron is one of the most durable materials found in a commercial kitchen. It can sear, roast, bake, and fry a number of different food products, from vegetables to chicken and fish. Many of our cast iron skillets come pre-sprayed with a soy-based vegetable oil where they are then put under high heat to allow the oil to penetrate the skin. However, regardless of pre-seasoning, there are times in every cast iron's life when re-seasoning is necessary to keep up the performance of the product. Re-seasoning can help prevent rusting and drying out which keeps food products from sticking to the skillet. Here's how to properly re-season your cast iron:
Cast Iron is no exception, and adhering to these rules will actually make your product better with age. Cast Iron skillets and griddles can last a lifetime if taken care of properly. Here are some maintenance fundamentals: The Do's
- After hand cleaning with hot water, towel dry and store away, or put atop an open burner until the heat just dissipates the moisture. (If super dry, apply a thin layer of warm oil to the surface of the pan and allow for it to soak in)
- Should rust spots form or if a metallic taste is detected on food, simply work a sheet of sandpaper or steel wool over the surface to remove and reseason your pan with warm oil
- When your pan is not being used, make sure to store it in a cool, dry place (Lodge Mfg suggests putting a paper towel on the surface of the pan or in between the pan and the lid to keep moisture from forming)The Dont's
- Don't use soap or detergents for cleaning cast iron- hot water will do and a sponge!
- Never put cast iron in the dishwasher- the chemicals in the detergents will strip down the oils in your pan's seasoning, resulting in a brittle, dried out pan
- Avoid submerging the cast iron in cold water, particularly when the product is still hot. This could cause thermal shock and a warped pan

When you hear the word commercial- what do you think? For most, a commercial kitchen conjures up images of a bustling restaurant, clanking pots and pans, sizzling food on the griddle, timers going off, and in a word, commotion. The key ingredient to a commercial kitchen is having the industry-grade supplies and equipment that can handle the rigors of this fast-paced setting. However, there is often a misconception that commercial kitchen products are only suited for industrial use. At Mission Restaurant Supply, we are trying to change that mentality. Many of our customers are not "commercial" at all, but every day people leading lives entirely opposite that of a foodservice professional. So then why do they come to us? These are people who are committed to quality and they look for this quality for their home kitchens. Though the cost of commercial-grade products may be at a higher price point, the benefits of investing in industry-adept products will stay with you for the long haul. These products perform under the hardest conditions, and in your home, they will get the job done each and every time. One such example of this is commercial cookware. Both in our Texas showrooms and online, we have an extensive selection of commercial-grade pots and pans that will handle themselves beautifully in the kitchen. From Stock Pots and Double Broilers to Fry Pans, Sauce Pots, Braziers, and Roast Pans, our selection ties together the highest quality materials with the reputation of trusted industrial brands like Crestware, Alegacy and Browne-Halco. Mission Restaurant Supply is Open to the Public- that means you don't have to own a restaurant or be buying for your business to shop with us. So even if you're looking for something other than cookware- such as a powerful blender by well-known brands like Vitamix, or perhaps a new undercounter ice machine for your home bar, Mission Restaurant Supply will have what you need.There's something to say about investing in quality products that will last while demonstrating their expertise in the kitchen. We are grateful to share this commitment and love for quality products with both our industry professionals and home cooks alike. Start experiencing the quality of commercial and begin cooking with sleek, industrial finesse.
The Esquire's cocktail guru, Jeret Peña, to talk about bartending, ingredients, The Esquire, and his exciting rise to success. Going into the Esquire Tavern is a bit like traveling back in time. The "longest wood bar in Texas" (over 100 feet long!) and "the oldest bar on the San Antonio Riverwalk" runs almost the entire length of the building and is filled with thirsty patrons who sit opposite wood cubbies filled with spirits, glimmering glassware, and mirrored panels. The Esquire was first opened in 1933 to celebrate the end of prohibition, and it has been serving up swanky cocktails and good eats for many years since. If you're not sitting at the bar, customers can duck into back to back, dark wooden booths that line the side of the restaurant, in a smaller, back dining area, or on a patio that leads right down to the river. The environment is, in a word, comfortable.
Upon walking in, the tavern-ambiance is undeniable; antlers hang stoically on the wall and the dim lighting lures customers in for a comforting meal and a warming drink. Despite all the decor though, there's no denying that the main focus of the Esquire is the bar. Enter: Jeret Peña- the tavern keeper, the head bartender, the revered mixologist who is garnering rave reviews left and right. From a Rising Star Award to his recent James Beard nomination, we were delighted to sit down with Jeret and take a look back on his rise to stardom.Peña got his start at the Valencia Hotel in a Banquet Event setting, dabbling for the first time in the bartending scene. He later moved on to the Watermark, and while there, was asked by the General Manger to host a tequila seminar for the San Antonio Current. It was then that he had to learn as much as he possibly could about the spirit, calling it "So complex, sophisticated and beautiful." Peña then went on to be the Ambassador for Partida Tequila for 2 years, and it was there that the door to mixology was opened. What happened next was the defining moment- a stint at Anvil, a respected bar in Houston, would change the course of Peña's career. Like many of us, finding a mentor you can really learn from and look up to can have a huge impact on your direction. Peña met his mentor, Bobby Heugel, one of the owners of Anvil, and the rest is history. Recalling his time with Bobby at Anvil, he said, "I saw a craft I knew nothing about- the fluid movement, the alchemy- it was mesmerizing." Since this turning point, Jeret has proved himself to be one of the leaders in the field. His innovative thinking and ability to push the envelope and explore new territory has brought about some well-deserved accolades as of late. StarChefs.com, a magazine for culinary insiders, recently honored "the best of the best" from the Austin and San Antonio dining scenes. A total of 19 awards were given out, with Peña taking home the Mixologist Honor.When receiving the "Rising Star" Accolade in a crowd of 400 people in Austin, Peña recalled thinking "I have momentum. It was wild-I felt honored to be on stage with so many amazing chefs." After sharing the news to his family and friends, he admitted that the James Beard Award was next up on the list. Little did he know, just a few weeks later, that he would be getting a nomination from the coveted organization's Bar and Cocktail Program. Clearly, it's a huge honor, and Jeret smiled as he said, "It's a little creepy." here! Visit the Esquire at 155 East Commerce Street San Antonio, Texas 78205 Image Credits
