As a restaurant entrepreneur, you probably want to get the food out fast and hot. Many restaurant owners agree that it is unwise to sacrifice freshness to microwave food portions before serving the plate to their guests. Not only is that a terrible idea, but it will not sit well with food critics and guests that can tell that their food was previously frozen and then microwaved. If you want to cook food faster and cook it fresh, here is what you need to know about cooking appliances. 

Convection Ovens 

If you do not have a convection oven in your restaurant, you should. These ovens can bake bread in just a few short minutes. They can cook the perfect Wellington in even less time. Everything can be freshly prepared on the same day and cooked to order in the convection oven without wasting any great length of time to provide freshly made and hot food for your guests. 

Rice Cookers

Rice cookers can steam rice in twenty minutes or less. If any of your restaurant's dishes involve rice, this is the best way to do it because then the natural glutens in rice will not clump the rice before you can serve it. The rice is always hot and fluffy and never hard and crunchy.

Instant Pots

The latest in hot, fresh, and fast cooking at home can benefit your restaurant. These small appliances can cook everything from mac and cheese from scratch to a pot roast with all of the trimmings. Have a few hot pots lined up and ready to go before you open your doors to hungry customers and your chefs can cook main dishes and side dishes that are tender and moist in minutes. Best of all, everything you toss in the pots will taste fresh; you can cook fresh veggies, fresh cheese, fresh meat, and more in instant pots. 

Pressure Cookers

Pressure cookers are the old standby for cooking nearly everything. If you have any menu items that normally take a long time to cook from scratch, consider a hot pot or a pressure cooker. A hot pot cooks things by itself without needing anyone to monitor it, while pressure cookers have to be placed on the stove and monitored until the time is up. 

These are just a few options. Contact local convection oven services in your area to learn more about buying and maintaining appliances.
