4 Cleaning Tips for a Commercial Kitchen, Honolulu, Hawaii

Maintaining a standard of cleanliness is essential for your commercial kitchen to stay in business, but the process can be tedious and time-consuming. AMSCO, a commercial kitchen equipment supplier in Honolulu, HI, shares some advice for keeping your cooking space sanitary. Below are a few of their favorite tips.

4 Cleaning Tips for a Commercial Kitchen

1. Use a Simple Cleaner

While you will likely need a degreaser for stubborn spots, a wipedown with a disinfectant may be all you need for your daily cleaning. Spend a little time finding a spray or similar cleaning agent you like to use in the kitchen; though you need something that will remove germs and keep your food preparation stations pristine, you also don’t want anything that will affect the taste of your ingredients. Some chefs prefer to use natural disinfectants like vinegar or lemons to minimize contamination.

2. Clean the Oven Daily

Cleaning the oven can seem like a tedious task, but it is much easier when done daily. Because any grease or food particles will not have as much time to bake onto the rack, they can be removed fairly easily. After completely cooling the oven, take out the racks out and wash them with a dish detergent and water. You can wipe out the interior of the oven with a wet cloth. If you need something a little more powerful, try natural cleaners like lemon juice, vinegar, and baking soda.

3. Use Microfiber Cloths

The fabric will absorb excess moisture without scratching the metal. Use this cloth with your preferred disinfectant to sanitize all food preparation areas, especially places where raw meat is handled.

4. Invest in Quality Appliances

Because a clean kitchen produces safe and tasty dishes, consider sanitation when buying new appliances. Think about how your staff would clean each potential piece, and ask about removable components like racks or trays that can be washed in the sink. Also, choose smooth surfaces like stainless steel, which will not harbor as much bacteria.
