What types of food preparation equipment are there?
Our range offers a wide range of tools to choose from, there are a number of general appliances that come in useful for different recipes. For example, a sous-vide which allows you to cook ingredients using water or special mixers which can help you make sauces, dough and batter. If you do a lot of work with vegetables, it can be useful to buy a vegetable slicer or a scraper, speeding up your prep time. There are also devices that are useful for specific dishes, such as sausage fillers and pizza rolls.
What are the advantages of food preparation equipment?
When you have to prepare a lot of food in a short period of time, it is very important that you work as quickly as possible. It can be useful to have special devices that take some of the work off your hands. Think for example of a spiral kneader that makes dough for you or a planetary mixer that produces pastry. In the meantime, you have your hands free for other jobs. In addition, some devices ensure that you always deliver exactly the same quality or quantity. You can form even-sized hamburgers with a hamburger press and make churros of the right length thanks to a churro machine. This also guarantees that the cooking time of each burger or churro is the same.
What standards do food preparation appliances have to comply with?
Every appliance in your kitchen must meet certain quality requirements. For example, it is extremely important that food preparation appliances are easy to clean. For this reason, they are made of stainless steel and the various components are easy to disconnect. This way, you can reach every part of the machine when cleaning and you can be sure that your kitchen is really hygienic. It is also important that they are safe to use. This is especially true for appliances such as meat grinders, cutters and slicers. When these machines are not in use, the blades must be shielded. In addition, the machines must be designed in such a way that your hands do not come close to the blade when you use it.
How do you choose the right food preparation device?
If you need a machine that makes it easier to prepare certain ingredients, then you have to decide which model is best for your kitchen. Size and capacity are important factors. If you need to make a lot of sausages, hamburgers or churros in a short period of time, it is useful to buy a device with a large reservoir, so that you can work like an assembly line. Smaller models are ideal when you have relatively little workspace in your kitchen. For hand mixers, the extra-long ones are better if you have lots of deep pots and pans, while the shorter ones are easier to store.
How do you clean food preparation equipment?
During food preparation, your appliances come into contact with numerous types of food, including raw meat. It is therefore extremely important to clean the machines after each use. Unplug the electrical equipment and remove all loose parts. Most parts made of stainless steel can simply be washed in the dishwasher. Then clean the base of the appliance and don’t forget to wipe down the outside. A damp cloth is sufficient for many machines. Appliances that come into contact with meat should be disinfected thoroughly with soapy water. Dry all parts thoroughly and then reassemble the machine, making it ready for the next time you want to use it.
