Ready Your Restaurant

Valentines Day is right around the corner. The worst thing that can happen is your commercial kitchen equipment breaking down. What would you do if suddenly your freezers weren’t temping because of a bad thermostat or your grill smoke started to over take the kitchen because your baffles need replacing. Catastrophes like walk-in cooler doors falling off of their hinges are preventable.

Restaurant managers/owners/chefs need to “check out” their equipment before any Holiday to avoid a potential nightmare for the restaurant. Holidays are busy enough in the back and front of the house, don’t make everyones temperature over boil by having a (preventable) kitchen meltdown.

Use the check list below to gain a piece of mind that your kitchen will function properly:

Door Hinges
Door Gaskets
Door Latches/Handles
Drawer Slides/Rails/Rollers
Heating Elements
Thermostats
Thermometers/Alarms
Grease Filters
Faucets
Water Filters
Switches

There still is time to get your replacement parts in before the Valentines Day rush. Call 844.292.6694 or go to HingedParts.com to order today!

Ready Your Kitchen For The Mothers Day Rush!

Don’t Worry About Things You Can Prevent

Get your restaurant ready for the Mother’s Day rush. Make sure your equipment will not fail you when you need it most. Check all hardware like door hinges, closers, latches, pull handles etc. Make sure your thermostats are running properly and replace them if they are not. You want to keep your refrigeration units working when you are at your busiest. Check all gaskets and replace them if they are worn or torn. Do put your equipment under added stress and it will last longer. Remember… equipment that is well maintained lasts longer, uses less energy, and costs less to run.

Greener Earth Tip: Install strip curtains on all your walk-in units. This will take additional stress off of your compressors and improve the performance of your unit. Each curtain saves you $254 a year off of your electric bill (depending on your utility rate and size of unit).
