  • The Best Commercial Baking Supplies at the Best Price

     

    Your bakery might have a great staff, but without great equipment and supplies, it will be difficult to sustain as a viable business. There are certain baking supplies that every good bakery needs, and they can be found online for an excellent price.
    1. One of the most essential baking supplies for any commercial operation is a floor mixer. Although there are many types of commercial mixers on the market in various sizes, a serious baking operation should invest in a floor model, as you'll presumably be doing large batches of product eventually, even if your needs are being met by a smaller model now. An additional benefit to the size of a floor mixer is that they can accommodate 50 lb. bags of flour, cake mix, cookie mix or whatever ingredients you'll need. Invest in a quality mixer as you'll use it often and you need one that can last you for many years into the future! Shop Mixers!
    2. Another supply you'll likely get a great deal of use from is a set of commercial baking pans. These also come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and it's good to buy a large selection. There are certain specialty pans that you may never need, but be sure to stock up on the basics. The most essential pans for every baker are cake pans, muffin pans, pie pans and sheet pans. It's important that you have a good stock of all of these. If you can build up a large supply of pans, you can use them in rotating shifts to improve productivity. For instance, if you're preparing something that requires proofing, you can be proofing one batch of dough already laid out on pans while another batch is in the oven or cooling on your other set of pans. Or, you can set up multiple sets of pans before close one night to be baked in the morning, saving time. Shop Baking Pans!
    3. Of course, you're going to need something to move all of these pans around on, which is why several bun pan racks need to be on your list of baking supplies to buy! These tall racks are extremely handy and just might see more use than any other piece of equipment in your kitchen. You will use them to transport your pans from place to place in the kitchen, and they're great for proofing dough or storing baked goods as well.  Make sure to buy covers for all of them too. This seems like a minor detail but they come in very handy for keeping your products free of debris while they're on the rack. Often, bakers will just use large plastic bags as covers. While this is fine in a pinch, it's a bad habit as it's wasteful and expensive in the long run. The pan covers are quite affordable, and many of them are insulated, which comes in very handy for controlling the temperature of your baked goods. Shop Bun Pan Racks!
    4. While you'll be able to proof some types of dough simply by putting them on a bun pan rack in a warm area, other types will require an actual heat source. For this, you should buy at least one heated cabinet. These can be bought with a solid or glass door, depending on your needs. They're quite versatile though, and can be used for many kitchen tasks. Besides proofing, you can use your heated cabinet for keeping baked goods warm while transporting to a bakery case in the front of your house. Shop Holding/Proofing Cabinets!
    5. In addition to all of these supplies, there are a variety of other smaller items you'll need. Many of these depend on your bakery in particular, but can include things like pastry cutters, pie markers, rolling pins, spatulas and sifters. If in doubt, buy as many of these types of common bakery items as you can. Some items you may not see a use for immediately, but you'll need them at some point, and it's better to have them on hand than to be rushing around at the last minute searching your local supermarket for an inferior residential version. Several good kitchen timers are also a great idea. Although some ovens have built-in timers, it's better to set two just in case one of them fails. Or, you can set one a bit earlier to remind yourself to check it. This is especially important when familiarizing yourself with new equipment, or attempting a new recipe where you may be unsure of the exact baking time necessary. Shop all other Baking Supplies!
  • Hunting Season Must-Haves

    Hunting season is almost here! Whether you're a seasoned hunter or a first-timer, processing your own deer is a project worth undertaking. Venison meat processing at home is a great way to save money and when you have the right supplies, it's easy. The first thing you'll need if you hope to process your own venison is a good set of hunting knives. You'll use these quite a bit when preparing meat, so it's smart to buy a high-quality set. One excellent choice is the "HS5600-4 Hunter's Knife Set" made by the respected manufacturer, Mundial Knives. This set includes three different high-carbon stainless steel knives; 3.25-inch camping knife, a 6-inch curved boning knife, and an 8-inch steak knife. It also includes a matching 10-inch sharpening stone, which is a must for keeping your knives in the best shape possible. This is a well-made and very versatile set, and works great for cleaning other meats, as well as fish. Another item you'll want for venison meat processing is a meat tenderizer. A multi-blade handheld meat tenderizer is perfect for venison steaks, and can reduce cooking time drastically. If you want to prepare perfect, tender cuts of meat, it's a good item to have on hand. The Jaccard Super-3 is an excellent and affordable choice. It features 48 surgical stainless steel blades, stainless steel actuating columns and it's dishwasher safe! One of the most essential items for venison meat processing is a quality meat grinder. These are necessary for making ground venison for burgers, chili, burritos and many other dishes. A meat grinder will also be exceptionally handy for making chopped steak. There are several different types of grinders available, as well as general food processors with meat cutting and grinding attachments. One of the most basic, but sturdy grinders on the market is the Jayhawk Sales 22. This is a manual tabletop grinder, and manages to be both affordable as well as extremely durable. It's ideal if you plan to do a limited amount of meat grinding, as its capacity is limited compared to electric models. It will, however, provide years of trouble-free service. If you plan to take on a larger quantity of meat processing, you should consider stepping up to an electric model. Compared to a manual model, a commercial-grade electric grinder will process much faster with less effort from the operator. One of the best values in commercial electric meat grinders is the Vollrath 40743 model. It has a 100v motor, two grinder plates, a number 12 hub and is capable of processing 220 pounds of meat per hour! In addition, the Vollrath includes a stainless steel pan and other accessories such as a stuffer and funnel. It's a reliable model that can handle the rigors of commercial production, but is affordable enough for residential purchase. Another option for meat cutting and grinding is to buy a commercial food processor that is capable of heavy-duty meat processing. The Univex PM91 is a strong contender in this field in terms of quality and value. While it costs more than the Vollrath processor, it's also much more versatile due to its design and different attachments. The Univex PM91 uses a 1inch wide Poly-V belt system driven by a 1 HP motor, and is high-powered enough to process an incredible amount of food very quickly. The benefit of this model over a regular meat grinder is that by using different attachments, it can also slice vegetables, shred cheese, and cut meats in various ways beyond simple grinding. Because it's a heavy-duty commercial model, it can do all of this at a speed far beyond any consumer-grade processor. It's also extremely sturdy, built from heavy-duty stainless steel. If you really want to take your food production to the next level, it's hard to beat the PM91. Finally, don't forget about storing all of this meat! Other important purchases you should consider are a vacuum packaging machine, and if you don't already have one, a large chest freezer. For vacuum packaging, consider another great Vollrath product, the Vollrath 40858 Vacuum Packaging Machine. It's efficient and durable, and can extend the storage life of your food considerably. For a freezer, make sure you buy one that is large enough to handle a great volume of meat. The Arctic Air CF20 is a good choice in this area, constructed of steel and offering 20 cubic feet of storage. It also features heavy-duty casters that make it easy to move, and uses environmentally friendly 134A refrigerant.
  • Upside Down Apple Pie

    As the temperatures drop and Fall begins to show its true colors, sometimes the best comfort food at the end of a long day is something warm and satisfying. That's where this Upside Down Apple Pie comes into play. The recipe originated from The Noble Pig Blog but it was submitted to us (along with the delicious photo!) by a loyal Facebook fan. We can't wait to try this dessert rich in comfort and made with love. Ingredients: 6 Tablespoons butter, melted & divided 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 cup chopped pecans 2 refrigerated pie crusts 1 cup granulated sugar 1/3 cup all purpose flour 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice 5 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored & cut into 1/2" slices What You Need: Measurers Pie Plate Mixing Bowl Spatula Apple Corer Bake Sheet (and a big appetite!) What You Do: Coat a deep-dish pie plate with nonstick cooking spray and line it with parchment paper. Coat the paper with cooking spray also. In a small bowl combine 4 Tablespoons of melted butter, brown sugar and pecans. Mix well and spread evenly over the bottom of the pie plate, on top of the parchment. Place one of the crusts in the pie plate, pressing it firmly against the nut mixture and up the sides of the plate. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon and the remaining 2 Tablespoons of melted butter. Mix well. Add the apples in and toss gently to coat. Spoon into the pie crust. Place the second crust over the apple mixture. Trim and fold the edges together to seal and cut some slits in the top of the crust for venting. Bake 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until crust is golden brown in a 375 degree oven. (Mine took 1-1/4 hours in the bottom third of my oven.) Make sure to place a cookie sheet on the bottom oven rack to catch any drips from the pie. Let the pie cool for 5 minutes and then place a plate that is larger than the pie on top of it and flip it over. Use oven gloves as it will still be hot. Remove the pie plate and gently lift the paper. Allow to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  • Bathroom Etiquette 101

    In the world of restaurants and dining out, the key to keeping a full house each and every day is consistency and satisfaction. Creating a well balanced menu with consistent results is obviously a very important factor, but other things like ambiance and clean bathrooms are equally as important as well. According to QSR, "Results of a recent study conducted by Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ:CTAS) reveal that 95 percent of people avoid businesses where they have had a negative restroom experience." That's NINETY FIVE PERCENT! Clearly, this is an issue not to be overlooked. Chefs and restaurateurs need to create that "Wow" factor to keep their customers loyal. Walking into a dirty bathroom that isn't properly maintained is an instant turn off and worst yet, it can deter even your biggest fans from coming back. At MissionRS.com we have a full selection of janitorial/bathroom products for you to choose from. From air sanitizers, to trash bins, from paper towels to toilet paper, we have everything you need to properly outfit your restaurant's bathrooms. Here are a few tips for keeping it clean.
    1. Ensure your facility has adequate soap so that you don't run out during peak hours. Dirty hands with both you customers and your employees are a major No no.
    2. Keep a trash bin both near the sink and next to the door. Many times, people use their paper towel to open the door before throwing it away.
    3. Stock up on plenty of toilet paper and paper towels.
    4. Make sure one of your employees is manning the restaurant bathrooms every so often. Making sure the sink is wiped down, toilets are flushed, and supplies are stocked will make a difference in the mind of your customer.
    5. Aside from the occasional spot clean, restaurant managers need to integrate exceptional standards of cleanliness through the use of professional cleaners. They should come regularly to uphold the deepest standards of cleanliness and ensure that floors, toilets, and sinks are 100% sanitary.
    6. Lighting is as important to the inside of a restaurant as it is the bathroom. Create an ambiance that is well thought out in all areas of your facility.
    Remember, your customers have high expectations. Don't meet them half way- go the extra mile and deliver that "Wow" factor. Don't disappoint your customers and risk losing valued business-and worse yet-others who hear about the problem- for lack of cleanliness due to poor maintenance and management.

  • Ideal Bar Refrigeration

    Every beverage, whether alcoholic or not, has an ideal temperature, and most bars and restaurants never learn them all. After a long day in the sun, few things taste as refreshing as an ice-cold lager, but even among beers there should be a varying scale of temperatures.
    • Beer. Bar refrigeration is often set at a standard temperature for all beers: close to freezing or at least frosting. Though some beers might be better served warmer (at 45F or higher) so as to bring out all the flavors, most people  will agree that beer is best when its lightly frosted. 

    This

    NOTE: Have you seen our Metalfrio beer coolers? Keep beer ICE cold with this affordable line of bar refrigeration!
    • Wine. The rule of thumb to keep red wines at room temperature and whites in a refrigerator was developed centuries ago, when "room temperature" meant in a drafty, medieval hall. When a wine is served too cold it restricts the flavors of the wine, while warmth just makes it taste like alcohol. For bar refrigeration standards, reds should generally be served at 60F, whites just a tad cooler at 55F.
     
    • Water. Backpackers returning from Europe will often complain about the lack of ice cubes throughout the continent. Water is served not hot but warm over there, and Americans like their drinks frigid. Nutritionists say drinking at a natural temperature is best for your body, and only glacier water occurs as naturally cold as Americans prefer. To promote proper absorption and to keep the taste buds from numbing, water, like white wine, should be served at a cool (not cold!) 55F.

  • Buying the Best Food Slicers for Your Cafe

     

    Vollrath

      If you own or operate a lunch cafe, deli or coffee shop, you probably have a pressing need for a quality slicer. Whether slicing meats, cheeses or vegetables, a good slicer is key to running an efficient and successful cafe. Of course, the differences between makes and models on the market are vast, and it's often hard to know which one to choose for your operation. If you want to ensure that your cafe is operating at its peak, you need to find food slicers that are optimized for your particular kitchen. 

    German

      One of the major distinguishing factors of commercial food slicers is whether they are manually or automatically operated. On an automatically operated slicer, the food surface will automatically reciprocate as fast as you want it to., which can mean incredible time savings when slicing large volumes of ingredients. If you're opening a deli or a sandwich shop and you plan to cut your own meats, then an automatic slicer is the route to go. Compared to a manually operated slicer, you'll see an astounding difference in the time it takes to complete slicing tasks. Of course, automatic models are more expensive than their manually-driven counterparts but it's up to you to determine whether the amount of time saved is worth the extra investment in the equipment. 

    Hobart

      Another difference you'll find between models of commercial food slicers is whether they are belt-driven or gear-driven. Again, there is a cost difference between the two, and the volume of work you'll be using the slicer for will be a determining factor in which model you choose. The advantages of a gear-driven slicer are mainly in terms of reliability and maintenance. The belts that power a belt-driven slicer should require almost no maintenance other than regular cleanings and a bit of oil from time to time. If you're doing a high volume of slicing on a daily basis, the extra cost of a gear-driven slicer will be worth it to you in the long run. 

    The

     

      Lastly, consider the power of your food slicer's motor. There are a variety of motors that you'll find in commercial slicers, and you need to choose a model with enough power for your needs. The motor's power will affect the speed of its operation, as well as the slicer's longevity and reliability. You want to buy a slicer with a large enough motor so that it's not straining to keep up day after day. After all, this extra stress could lead to a breakdown after extended periods of use.  We have a BIG selection of commercial food slicers available on MissionRS.com, some of which qualify for FREE SHIPPING! Visit our selection today and thank you for choosing Mission Restaurant Supply!
