Bakerella, was just one of those recipes. Loaded with chopped walnuts, packed brown sugar and lots of sliced peaches, it resembles a peach cobbler, and would be extra delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream over the top. We decided to try it out and let our fellow Mission employees be the guinea pigs, and the results were, you guessed it, peachy!
In the back of the house, a restaurant kitchen should be organized and efficient. The way it is laid out says a lot about the way the kitchen operates and the overall level of productivity. Your chefs and your kitchen staff need counter space to perform their duties, and with heavy-duty stainless steel work tables, they can do just that.
As an important component to a kitchen's day to day routine, you will want to be sure to invest in a table that best fits your space and has all the features to be a dependable partner in the back of the house. At Mission Restaurant Supply you will find restaurant work tables in many sizes to suit your needs and your budget. All are composed of galvanized or heavy-duty stainless steel, which is easy to clean, and most importantly, they are built to endure whatever strains your cooks may inflict. Restaurant work tables can often be mobile and adjustable. If a particular set-up just isn't working, you can move them around and find an arrangement to suit your needs. This mobility can be enhanced by the addition of wheeled casters.
Some work tables have adjustable legs as well which allows you to customize the height of the workspace and the storage space beneath. Many of our restaurant work tables have an undershelf or a shelf below the counter top that you can use for extra storage space. We also provide drawers, which can be easily attached to the legs of the table. These drawers prevent small items from creating a cluttered mess, while keeping them near the work space and ready for use.
Some restaurant work tables may need to be placed against walls. For this purpose, Mission Restaurant supply has tables with a walled edge or riser that fits flush against the wall. These risers can prevent splatter from staining the kitchen walls and they also prove useful by preventing cutting boards from sliding around if you choose to use the work table as a free standing island. Restaurant worktables provide mobility, customization, extra space, and aesthetic appeal at varying price points. Determining what level of quality and what manufacturer best fits your budget and demand will be an important decision to consider prior to investment. Brands like Advance Tabco have built a reputation around making the highest quality tables with the strongest steel and pristine manufacturing. Other brands like Jaxpro are great options for the end user on a budget that doesn't want to compromise on the function or aesthetic of their work table.
Whatever the size of your kitchen, Mission Restaurant Supply's work tables will prove an asset to your business. Let us help you find what you need. Give us a call at 1-800-319-0690 from 8 AM to 6 PM (CST) Monday through Friday. We look forward to hearing from you!

In the restaurant industry there's an enormous amount of time spent prepping the food: chopping, julienning, grinding, dicing- you name it- your kitchen staff is spending valuable time in the preparation phase making sure that the ingredients are ready and prepared accordingly. Undoubtedly, the single most important tool to make all of this happen, aside from cutlery, is your hands. Unfortunately, we have all been in a situation where a cooking-related accident ensues- burns, cuts, they are an inevitable part of working in the kitchen at one point in time. Accidents Happen! One way that you and your staff can take precautionary measures to ensure cuts and kitchen-related injuries are kept at bay is by investing in gloves. And not just any gloves, we're talking Cut-Resistant gloves. At MissionRS.com, we have a few different styles in various sizes to ensure an accurate fit and proper application.
Another crucial precaution for all of your restaurant staff to take is staying educated on cross contamination and food safety. Gloves play a role in this practice as well.
Food Code 2005 forbids bare hand contact with ready-to-eat foods. This is where disposable gloves come in handy. Disposable gloves are extremely economical and are ideal for prep work of any kind. However, it is critical to remember proper glove usage to avoid cross contamination and foodborne illness.
We have a selection of disposable polyethylene gloves online that are ideal for safe food handling and which are to be thrown away after using. Made with a component that complies with FDA regulations for food contact, these gloves feature a sheer-gauge 1 mil poly film which provides a sense of touch that is close to the bare hand. They can also be worn on either hand, they're available in various sizes, and they are packed in a case of 100.
Below is an interesting excerpt from Professionalequipment.com
"According to the Ansell Edmont manufacturing website: The average insurance compensation for OSHA recordable hand and finger injuries is approximately $3856.00. The average medical payment is approximately $2600.00. There are approximately 439,000 disabling hand and finger injuries a year, which equates to an annual cumulative cost in the millions." Moral of the story is to take the necessary precautions and invest in gloves for your staff! Make sure to stay educated on proper glove usage as well.

The food service industry relies heavily on dependable commercial refrigeration to chill and store food safely. A refrigerator malfunction or breakdown can cause spoilage and a massive disturbance to your day-to-day routine, leading to lost time and ultimately, lost revenue. As an owner of commercial refrigeration equipment, it is necessary to know the basics of maintenance to reduce the risk of costly problems now and in the future. How to Maintain Commercial Refrigerators Many problems can be avoided by maintaining regular equipment inspections. The constant use of commercial refrigeration equipment brings with it the potential for errors that can be spotted during a visual inspection. Therefore, it's important to be consistent in your maintenance routines, picking up signs of a problem early and rectifying the issue before it worsens. This dilgence and consistency will pay off in the future and save you a significant amount of funds down the line. Clean Condenser Coils Since every refrigerator uses compressors and condensers, the coils must be cleaned regularly to achieve the correct operating temperature. A coil brush is the tool that is used to remove hair, dust, dirt or other debris that clogs the coils, making it more difficult to maintain accurate temperatures. Condenser coils should be cleaned once each month to help extend the operating life of your commercial refrigerators. firstname.lastname@example.orgCheck for Drain Clogs The defrost setting for refrigeration systems is what keeps ice from forming inside the doors and on food products. A clogged drainage hose can prevent proper defrosting and cause water leakage. Most commercial refrigeration units have a rear access panel; this allows you to easily get to the drainage hose. This should be checked regularly to keep clogs from causing motor or electrical damage. Fix Cracked Gaskets The gaskets used inside of commercial refrigeration units create a tight seal when the door is closed, but they can crack and wear over time. This allows cold air to dissipate, forcing the compressor and condenser units to work harder. Leaking door gaskets are a common cause of failure to hold correct temperature in commercial refrigerators. The gaskets have a retaining clip that should be unscrewed to allow the gasket to be removed. Inspecting the gasket will reveal any cracks or holes. A new gasket should be installed if defects are found. Commercial refrigerators will have a long, useful life when properly maintained with routine inspections and accurate maintenance techniques.
