1. Keep It Clean
Daily cleaning is a mandatory task when your job takes place in a kitchen. This includes all kitchen equipment, from fridges and freezers to fryers and ovens.
It’s easy to take shortcuts when it comes to cleaning the oven. In other words, people skip the interior or do a lousy job.
Think about the amount of various food particles, oil, fat, and liquids lying in the bottom of the oven.
If you care about the reputation of your business and the health of your customers, always make sure your oven’s interior is clean.
In fact, cleaning gets easier when you do it regularly. Try to clean your oven with baking soda and vinegar — they are wonderful, natural ingredients that can get rid of the most stubborn stains.
2. Inspect The Oven’s Doors Frequently
The door is the most critical part of the oven. Without it correctly sealed and working, there will be heat inefficiencies.
Poorly functioning oven doors lead to longer cooking time due to heat leakage. As a result, extra, unwanted costs will add up.
You certainly don’t want to pay more money for something that can barely work properly.
Give regular checkups to your oven doors. Make sure the seal has a tight fit. Likewise, inspect the door knobs and handles to ensure they are all secure.
Try not to put too much force on the door since it will loosen the hinges. This eventually will loosen the door seal.
3. Calibrate Your Thermostats
Oven calibration is a common maintenance task. Its goal is to make sure your oven temperature matches your expectation.
Failure to adjust your thermostats will lead to inefficiencies over time. An oven that fails to run true to its desired temperature will cost you money and hinder your business flow.
Seek professional advice if you’re not sure about how to calibrate your thermostats.
