The kitchen towel doesn’t always get the credit it is due. Just ask your kitchen staff how often they use towels throughout one evening of service. Here are some of the ways your team is going to be using the humble kitchen towel for safety, cleanliness, and speed of delivering meals.
- Cleaning the cutting board – Having a clean kitchen towel on hand saves your chef from running to the sink over and over again. One quick swoosh of the towel and the cutting board is ready for the next chop (unless it needs to be washed due to raw meat or an allergen, of course). Keeping one damp kitchen towel on hand along with a dry one allows for cleaning after cutting something sticky, such as garlic.
- Cleaning knives – The same holds true with a chef’s knife. As long as it doesn’t touch raw meat or an allergen that needs to be washed off, having one damp and one dry kitchen towel handy allows your chef to clean a knife and move on quickly.
- Grabbing hot pans – A quality kitchen towel is also heavy enough to use as an oven mitt of sorts. Just folder it over for a little extra thickness, and you can use it to grab a hot pan out of the oven.
