1 Equipping the Kitchen Chapter 22 – red book

2 Objectives Evaluate kitchen designs for convenience of work center’s and work triangles

3 Kitchen Design Work flow – pattern of activity that begins with removing the food from storage and continues with washing the food if necessary, preparation and serving

4 Work Centers Areas designed for performing specific kitchen tasks
Three Main Work Centers Cold-storage center Sink center Cooking center

5 Work Triangle The arrangement of the three main work centers
Primary path of work flow Each work center = Point of triangle Total distance between centers – ft

6 4 Basic Kitchen Plans One-wall – all three work centers on 1 wall
L-shaped – work centers are on 2 connecting walls Corridor – work centers are located on 2 parallel walls U-shaped – work centers are on 3 connecting walls

7 2 Additional Kitchen Plans
Island kitchen – counter stands alone in center of room Peninsula kitchen – counter extends into the room (open on 2 sides and 1 end)


9 Universal Kitchen design
Also known as “Lifespan Design” Space usable for everyone regardless age or physical disability Examples :wider doorways, work surfaces at various heights, open shelves, more drawer space

10 Objectives Compare different models of ranges
Describe factors to consider when choosing kitchen components Explain what you need to know to be a smart shopper

11 Major Appliances Conventional Range – single, freestanding unit consisting of cooktop, an oven, and a broiler. Two types of Conventional Ranges Gas Electric

12 Gas Range Vs. Electric Range
Gas Range – heating element called burners Visible flame Easily regulated Pilot light – small flames that burn continuously Oven and Broiler in separate compartments Electric Range – heating elements called elements Exposed, metal, coil elements Glass-ceramic smoothtop Oven and broiler in same compartment Oven – heat from bottom Broiler – heat from top

13 Convection Oven fan that circulates heated air to equalize temperatures throughout the oven Faster cooking and browning More even cooking and browning

14 Other Major Appliances
Refrigerator-freezer Dishwasher

15 Buying Major Appliances
Look for: Seals of Approval show that product meets certain safety and performance standards EnergyGuide label Tool for estimating an appliance energy costs Warranties Manufacturer’s guarantee that a product will perform as advertised Service Contract Repair and maintenance insurance purchased to cover a product for specific length of time

16 Seal of Approval Underwriters Laboratories Seal (UL) – certifies the appliance design is reasonably free from risk of fire, electric shock, and other hazards American Gas Association Seal (AGA) – attests to the design, performance, and reliability of gas appliances

17 EnergyGuide Label Gives average yearly cost of operating Required on:
Refrigerators Freezers dishwashers

18 Warranties Time limits Coverage usually conditional
Can usually buy extended warranties Additional coverage for longer period of time

19 Service Contract Usually offered by dealer who sold product
Usually expensive Usually don’t cover cost of repairs or parts May duplicate protections covered in warranty

20 Be Critical Shopper Keep written notes – likes/dislikes
Consider accident prevention Handle appliances – seem well made? Look at owner’s manual Compare prices Ask dealer additional cost Delivery Installation charge

21 Objectives Identify different kinds of tableware and list selection factors applicable to each Set a table attractively

22 Table Appointments All items needed at table to serve and eat a meal
Dinnerware Flatware (silverware) Beverageware Holloware Linens centerpieces

23 Dinnerware Plates, cups, saucers, and bowls Materials used
China – most expensive, elegant and durable Stoneware – heavier, more casual than china but less expensive Earthenware – cost comparable to stoneware, but less durable Pottery – least expensive, thick and heavy, tends to chip and break easily Glass-ceramic – strong and durable Plastic – lightweight, break resistant, colorful, very casual stains and scratches over time

24 Flatware “Silverware” – knives, forks, spoons, serving spoons, and specialty utensils Materials uses Sterling silver – require polishing Silver plate – require polishing Stainless steel – does not tarnish, affected by eggs, vinegar, salt, tea, and coffee so avoid prolonged contact

25 beverageware “Glassware” Two basic shapes Tumblers – do not have stems
Juice Cooler highball Stemware – has 3 parts (bowl, stem and foot) Water goblets Wine glasses Champaign glasses

26 Holloware Bowls, tureens (used to serve food), pitcher and pots
