Industrial blenders and mixers must be used properly so that productivity and efficiency won’t suffer throughout a lunch rush. The best way to prevent injuries in a restaurant environment is by using all equipment in a proper manner.
Practical Usage Methods for Blenders
Before an industrial blender is turned on, ensure that the lid is secured firmly in place. If a cook operates the gadget while the lid isn’t locked, food will splatter everywhere in the kitchen. You may have to deal with burn injuries if hot liquids blast out of a blender, which is why your cooks should always rotate the spout on each blender slightly to fully seal the lid.
If something needs to be blended after it’s taken off of a burner, you must wait at least five minutes so that the food can cool down. When extremely hot items are tossed in a blender and blended, steam builds up in the container as the foods rotates. Once the lid is lifted, the steam that generated in the blender will float into the air. Because this steam is extremely hot, it could burn you if the currents touch your skin.
In some cases, a cook will have to blend food while it’s somewhat hot in order to make delicious soups. During these cooking situations, light steam will float out of the container after the food is blended, but accidents can be avoided by tilting the lid strategically in the opposite direction so that the steam can escape.
Safety Methods for Mixers
Whenever the motor is running, you shouldn’t put any utensils in the mixing bowl. Instead, always let the mechanisms stop before using a spatula to protect the motorized components.
If a sharp item in the kitchen damages the cord, you must throw the mixer away. A frayed cord is dangerous in a cooking environment because a water hazard can cause a fire or an electrical injury.
Although an industrial mixer can be used outside during a cookout, it should never be attached to an extension cord. A long cord creates a safety hazard because someone could trip while walking in the area around the mixer.
Blenders and mixers that are designed for commercial purposes can boost efficiency if they’re used and maintained properly. When correct usage and safety procedures are implemented, restaurants owners increase customer satisfaction since inefficiencies won’t decrease service levels.
