kitchen

A kitchen is a room or part of a room used for cooking and food preparation in a dwelling or in a commercial establishment. A modern middle-class residential kitchen is typically equipped with a stove, a sink with hot and cold running water, a refrigerator, and worktops and kitchen cabinets arranged according to a modular design. Many households have a microwave oven, a dishwasher, and other electric appliances. The main functions of a kitchen are to store, prepare and cook food (and to complete related tasks such as dishwashing). The room or area may also be used for dining (or small meals such as breakfast), entertaining and laundry. The design and construction of kitchens is a huge market all over the world.
Commercial kitchens are found in restaurants, cafeterias, hotels, hospitals, educational and workplace facilities, army barracks, and similar establishments. These kitchens are generally larger and equipped with bigger and more heavy-duty equipment than a residential kitchen. For example, a large restaurant may have a huge walk-in refrigerator and a large commercial dishwasher machine. In some instances commercial kitchen equipment such as commercial sinks are used in household settings as it offers ease of use for food preparation and high durability.In developed countries, commercial kitchens are generally subject to public health laws. They are inspected periodically by public-health officials, and forced to close if they do not meet hygienic requirements mandated by law.

    Kitchen “Junk” Drawer

    Most of us probably have one (I happen to have two), a kitchen “junk” drawer that holds all sorts of miscellaneous stuff, like matches, batteries, maybe leftover condiment packets from your takeaway meals. I reorganized mine recently, so they look better now, but they were a real shambles, and...

    Kitchen Scales

    Do you use a kitchen scale? Is yours a micro scale, or just a regular (macro?) scale? Is it something you frequently use, or it sits unloved in the back of some cabinet somewhere? Here’s mine: It’s not a micro scale, but does weigh in grams and ounces. I’m fairly certain I got it for...

    What’s the next kitchen item you plan to buy?

    Apart from replenishing the rotating supply of food items/ingredients, what would you say is the next thing you plan to buy for your kitchen? Something big, like a new fridge? Something small, like a stick bender? Something in between? I’ve been on the lookout for some attractive swing-top...
