REFRESHING YOUR COMMERCIAL KITCHEN EQUIPMENT AFTER THE HOLIDAY RUSH
There’s a reason people look forward to holiday dishes every year. Slathered in butter, coated in oil, served in flavorful sauces, and slow-cooked to perfection—they’re delicious. However, cooking during the holiday season can affect the safety, functionality, and quality of your commercial kitchen. The post-holiday season can be difficult.
The holiday crowds are gone and the chaos of the new year has dwindled. So now it’s time to clean up the kitchen and prepare your restaurant for the rest of the year ahead. The cleaning professionals at HOODZ have outlined how the holiday rush can impact some of your equipment. They’ve also identified some key maintenance tips to help your equipment cook delicious dishes all year.
Grease Containment Crisis: Manage the Kitchen Grease
Chances are, your fryers stayed busy during this holiday season. Grease buildup in your ventilation system can create fire hazards, cause expensive damage, and violate the EPA’s codes. Avoid a grease containment crisis. Ensure that your restaurant’s grease containment methods effectively manage the grease your kitchen produces. To keep your commercial kitchen operating safely, efficiently, and legally, make it a priority to have a professional assess your grease containment system.
Conveyor Oven Overdrive: Cleanup for Quality
Conveyor ovens are a crucial component for many restaurant owners during the holidays. To ensure your conveyor oven is energy-efficient, properly functioning, and cooking your food consistently, get it cleaned by professionals. Because a thorough cleaning involves substantial disassembly and reassembly, use a qualified service provider.

Exhaust Fan Exhaustion: Time for a Tune-Up
Using your oven emits grease and smoke into the air. Exhaust fans keep your kitchen properly ventilated while cooking. This means they can get quite a workout during the holiday rush. As part of your post-holiday season maintenance, (and to prevent an emergency breakdown) have your exhaust fan belt professionally inspected. The fire code requires exhaust fans, so it’s important to install and maintain them properly.
Cooking is a Full-Time Job—Cleaning Kitchen Equipment Shouldn’t Be
After a long, busy season of cooking, all your kitchen equipment could use a good cleaning. One thing to consider for saving time and energy on those hard-to-clean items is a soak tank system. Soak tanks are a convenient way to make cleaning all of those heavily soiled kitchen items faster and more efficient. A custom soak tank and soak tank service program can simplify your day-to-day and seasonal commercial kitchen cleaning. It can clean utensils, oven racks, pots and pans, grates, hood filters, and more.
