Every year, the restaurant industry gets more advanced. Fast food restaurants now offer touch screens and online ordering, kitchens have switched from paper tickets to digital displays, and new commercial kitchen equipment is designed to help you keep up with demand and make the most of your space. Restaurant appliance supplier AMSCO in Honolulu, HI, recommends keeping an eye out for these advanced technologies in 2017.
1. R290 Refrigerant
Due to new regulations released by the EPA, kitchens are switching out old refrigerators for new, environmentally friendly designs that rely on R290 refrigerant. This naturally occurring substance has been deemed a low global warming potential substitute for older refrigerants.
2. Smart Appliances
Many tasks your staff does by hand can now be completed automatically. From fryers that change their own oil to automated shutdown and startup times for your ovens and cooktops, smart commercial kitchen equipment saves energy—and in many cases, makes employees safer.
3. Multi-Functional Restaurant Equipment
One of the best ways to make your kitchen more efficient is to combine several functions in one appliance. Look for items like rapid-cook ovens which offer multiple cooking methods to accommodate different dishes.
4. Data Collection
A good restaurant owner observes trends and orders ingredients to keep up with demand. Smart appliances and digital tracking systems make the process is even easier. See your kitchen's activity in real time and receive notifications on your phone or computer when supplies are low.
5. Specialty Options
Want a compact herb garden right in your kitchen? You can have it. Need a water dispenser that offers both still and sparkling water at any temperature? There’s a system that fits into your kitchen and budget. Customizing your kitchen to offer unique specialty items and fresh flavors has never been easier.
