When you own a restaurant that serves a high volume of diners every single day, what happens on the floor—even the kitchen floor—affects your ability to satisfy your customers.
A kitchen needs to meet the high demand of steady foot traffic which requires a staff to do their best work quickly. The kitchen is not just about stoves, ovens and food-prep appliances. Dishwashing equipment plays just as vital of a role. It’s what keeps the whole rotation of service rolling while ensuring that customers are not put off by a spot on their plate, bowl, or cup.
Popular restaurants wade in mountains of servingware, dinnerware and cookware which must constantly rotate to keep the busy tables set. This is where an efficient dishwashing area proves vital to keeping customers satisfied. A commercial pre-rinse faucet in the dishwashing area, for example, can mean the difference between gaining and losing customers. It improves your restaurant's efficiency in several ways.
Built for Preventing Stains and Scrubbing
Unlike faucets of old, commercial pre-rinse faucets come with a high-arc spout and auxiliary, high-pressure, pull-out, spraying nozzle. Such a faucet actually blasts food off the plates to ease the burden of the main dishwasher, save time, and prevent stains from sticking to pots, pans and serving dishes.
It can Be Mounted a Couple of Ways
Today's commercial pre-rinse faucets require less space than faucets of old. They can even be installed at the perimeter of a kitchen area for use by bar staff or floor staff as well.
Commercial pre-rinse faucets require little hassle to install. Walls need not be torn down, nor does heavy equipment need moving. It can be mounted on nearly any wall space where your basin may fit. You can even replace your old basin's faucet with the pre-rinse one. The pre-rinse faucet is so space efficient that you can even install two or more in your kitchen area.
Add-Ons for Utility
Aside from the standard 8-inch high faucet, you can also opt for a pre-rinse faucet package that comes with a 12-inch auxiliary faucet. These faucets especially accommodate oversized pots, big roasting pans and mixer bowls. The extra length allows you to spray more than one such pan at a time.
It Can Make Kitchen Experiments More Manageable
Is your chef an after-hours experimenter? After your establishment is closed, your dishwashing staff usually disappears. If your chef should want to stick around to create new dishes, he or she can use a commercial pre-rinse faucet with ease when dirtying up pots or pans. Your dishwashers will appreciate it the next day.
For all these reasons and more, installing a commercial pre-rinse faucet amounts to raising the customer-service bar within your restaurant and your staff. Meanwhile, it lessens the toil for your staff in the kitchen and on the floor, which results in more smiles—something sure to help you build your customer base as well.
