IN THE ZONE: PREP LIKE A RESTAURANT CHEF
Kitchen design has evolved from being a place to cook to being a place we live. Instead of relying solely on the trusty work triangle, designers are implementing a zone-based strategy when designing kitchens to work for family meals as well as entertaining. This allows homeowners to personalize their kitchen space like never before.
Creating a separate prep area is one of our favorite ways to use undercounter refrigeration. The theory of creating a home prep station comes straight from the professionals. If you want to see efficiency at its finest, look at a restaurant kitchen. Chefs have the ingredients they need at their fingertips, streamlining the way they prepare for, cook and present their meals. You’ll also notice that all their equipment is made of stainless steel. Stainless steel is sanitary, easy to clean, and won’t pit or crack like plastic.
When it comes to your own kitchen space, Perlick has countless products to help you create your very own home prep station. Whether adding refrigerator drawers next to the stove for easy access to ingredients for your famous Chicken Cacciatore or dual-zone freezer refrigerator drawers to the kitchen island for morning smoothies, Perlick brings the professional kitchen home.
