If you love food in all its forms, then there’s nothing better than watching a talented chef creating great dishes in front of your eyes. We refer to this as front-of-house cooking or display kitchens. Customers love it, and for restaurants, it’s often a marketing tool and an out-of-kitchen experience for chefs that really shows an operation's transparency.
When you're used to certain limitations, you end up just accepting them. A great example in foodservice is ventilation. Commercial kitchens traditionally need vents and hoods, but they can also restrict productivity, creativity, and even profitability.
The bottom line is no matter what type of foodservice equipment, one solution is not always right for every type of operation.
