Why is a saladette a useful improvement for your kitchen?
A saladette plays a vital role in not only maintaining ingredient freshness but also in improving kitchen organization and enhancing food preparation efficiency. With a saladette counter in your kitchen, you can enjoy numerous benefits:
Saladettes and sandwich preparation counters are specifically designed to store, organize, and protect your fresh ingredients, maintaining optimal temperature and minimizing spoilage or contamination. Outside of service, you can close the stainless steel lid for added protection and a lower energy consumption. Improved kitchen organization
Keep your ingredients neatly arranged and easily accessible in GN pans, streamlining your food preparation process. The cabinets or drawers below the countertop also have gastronorm dimensions, so you can create an easy flow for refill of the most popular ingredients. Enhanced food preparation efficiency
With everything in its place and within easy reach, a saladette allows chefs and kitchen staff to work seamlessly, increasing productivity and overall kitchen efficiency.
Saladette or sandwich preparation counter?
We mention both saladettes and sandwich preparation counters on this page and it is therefore worth mentioning what the difference is. While they may resemble each other, their unique design features cater to different needs in a professional kitchen.
Saladettes are distinctive due to their open top, where gastronorm pans sit level with the counter surface. This design element promotes a seamless workflow, making it an efficient choice for kitchens focused on quick, streamlined food preparation. Depending on the size of the counter, a saladette tends to accommodate more GN pans compared to a sandwich preparation counter. Sandwich preparation counters, on the other hand, typically feature a raised gastronorm area. This is advantageous for food establishments that require countertop space for food preparation as well as access to GN pans holding ingredients. With the elevated structure, there is plenty of space for deep GN pans without loosing any of the cabinet storage space. Ultimately, the choice between a saladette and a sandwich preparation counter depends less on the products themselves and more on the specific needs of your kitchen. Consider your food preparation routine, ingredient accessibility, and the ergonomic efficiency of your kitchen staff when making your selection. Both models are designed to provide convenience, organization, and optimal temperature control for fresh ingredients. Look for the solution that best fits your unique daily operations and gastronorm (GN) needs. With either choice, TEFCOLD assures quality and durability in meeting the demands of any kitchen environment.
