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
