1 7.01 Apply the Elements of a Functional Kitchen Types of Kitchens
2 Work Centers for kitchen activities: Food Preparation & StorageCounter for preparing food.Refrigerator and cabinets for storing utensils and food.Cooking & ServingStovetop and oven for cooking and baking.Cabinets and counter for tools and utensils.Clean UpSink and dishwasher.Cabinets for storing dishes, tools, and utensils.Today kitchens may also have a planning work center with a computer, bookshelves and desk.
3 Work TriangleTo make a kitchen efficient as possible you need to place the focus points of major work centers at the corner of imaginary triangle. Called a work triangle.The total walking distance between refrigerator, sink & range should not exceed 21 feet.
5 The ideal work triangle follows the normal flow of food preparation The ideal work triangle follows the normal flow of food preparation. You move food from the refrigerator/freezer & take it to the sink for cleaning. From the sink food goes to range for cooking.After cooking &eating leftover foodis returned torefrigerator.
6 One Wall KitchenThe range, sink, refrigerator and cabinets are arranged along one wall.Saves space – usually in apartmentsVery limited storage& countertop
7 Corridor KitchenAppliance and cabinets are arranged along 2 walls, with an aisle between them.Usually has a compact efficient work triangleIf both ends of corridor are open can have interruption from people walking through
8 L-Shaped KitchenAppliances and cabinets are arranged along 2 adjoining walls. Allows an open area that may be used for dining.More than 1 person can work in kitchenCorner storage might not be fully accessible
9 U-Shaped KitchenContains appliances and cabinets that are arranged along 3 adjoining walls.The most desirable because most U-shaped have more continuous counter and cabinet space than other layouts.
10 Island/ A freestanding storage and countertop unit in a kitchen May contain a second sink or a cooktop
11 Peninsula A kitchen countertop that is attached at one end to a wall Usually cabinets beneath countertopCan serve as an open divider between the kitchen & a dining room or family room
12 Kitchen Sinks Styles and colors to suit every style Can be round, square, oval: deep or shallowCan have single, double, triple bowlsCan be made of porcelain, stainless steel, acrylic
13 Refrigerators Size depends on number of people in family 2 people = 16 cubic feet. Add 1.5 cubic feet for each additional personCan be broken into different compartments separate for fruits, veggies, meats
14 Types of Refrigerators One door: does not have a freezer, only a colder compartment. Will not keep food frozenCompact: suitable for dorms, offices, hotels rooms. Not suitable for frozen foods or ice. Can be rented or purchased cheaplyTwo door: most common type found in home. Has a separate freezer compartment that remains at about 0. Above, below, bedside doors
15 Refrigerator Special Features Ice makerIce cube & water dispenser in doorSelf defrosting freezerMovable glass shelvesDeep door compartmentsBuilt in touch screen & bar code scanner for inventory and so go online to order items at local storeBuilt in TV
17 The recommended size of the refrigerator depends on the number of people in the household. For 2 people use 16 cu.ft.Add 1.5 cu.ft for each additional person.Ex: Family of 4…..16 cu.ft = 19 cu.ft
18 FreezersStyle: Consider the product and its location in your home. Will an upright or chest freezer work better for you? A 14 cu. ft. upright freezer annually consumes less than half the energy needed to light a 100 watt bulb for the same period of time.
19 Chest type freezer: large, bulky packages are easier to store, use LESS energy because less cold air escapes when door is opened.Disadvantages: Take up more floor space and food must be lifted out
20 Upright type freezers: food is easier to see and remove, takes up a small amount of floor space. Uses more energy.
21 Electric RangesConventional Coil: electricity flows through wires encased in coilsGlass ceramic top: smooth top, coils are hidden, easy to clean, scratches easilyHalogen cartridges: uses electricity but provides instant heat just like gas
22 Induction Cook topsUses a magnetic field to generate heat in the bottom of cooking pots and pans which must also be magnetic.Heat from the cookware then cooks the foodNO heat is created on the range top.Cleanup is easy because spills do not burn and coils are beneath a glass ceramic top
23 Gas RangesHeat is produced from the combustion process between gas and oxygen.Gas is controlled with a valve with electronic igniters (required by law)Conventional burners: do not fit snugly into cook-top so spills are difficult to cleanSealed burners: No opening exists between burner and cook-top, easy cleanup
24 Styles of RangesFreestanding: Most common and comes in different sizes, colors, and has many different options. Oven is below the cook-top, may stand alone OR between cabinets.
25 Slide-in range : either slides into or rest on base cabinets Slide-in range : either slides into or rest on base cabinets. Usually chrome strips are used to cover the side edges and provide the built in lookBuilt-in range: provides cooking surface separate from the oven. Installed on a countertop, usually an island. Oven is installed in a wall, can have microwave installed above/below.Warming Drawer: used to keep hot food warm until serving time. Used to warm plates and serving pieces.
26 Convection oven: bake foods in a stream of heated air, browns and cooks food faster at a lower temperatureMicrowave oven: cooks with high-frequency energy waves. Can cook, defrost, & reheat foods. Come in many sizes and wattages, can be countertop or built-in
27 Food Waste DisposerInstalled below the sink to catch and grind most types of foods. Connected to a sewer line or septic tank.COLD water is needed to help grind the scraps and flush them through the drain
28 DishwasherDishwasher: saves time, energy & water. Uses hotter water & stronger detergents, dries dishes faster, can be built-in or portable, many have special cycles for pots, fine china, food disposer, quiet operation
29 Trash compactorcompress household trash to a fraction of its original volume.Trash is placed into heavy duty plastic bags, trash compactors can handle almost any kind of nonfood trash, including bottles, cans & plastic containersNOT intended for food scraps, flammable materials and aerosol cans
