In the past week, Merican Limited celebrated 8. Years of service in the field. We have been graced to have supportive team members and unique clients in our journey. Aside from this, we have noted a shift in commercial kitchens as technological changes continue to be integrated in the field. Such changes have seen us create products that align with current needs, promote production efficiency, and save on energy. We are also sure that as we continue to grow, we will introduce more technologically advanced products, as technology and innovation is vital in the growth of commercial kitchen services.
Increased Menu Options
Kenya is considered an international destination due to its tourism openness. In the kitchen sector, we have seen an increase in commercial kitchens providing diverse cuisines. Although our culture already incorporated this diversity in its tribal factions, the rise in international cuisine has necessitated a wide range of restaurant commercial equipment. Furthermore, this shift has also increased how fast our clients grow, as people are more inclined to incorporate more than commercial kitchen ranges in their kitchens. In recent years, commercial kitchen basics include chillers and fridges, griddles, ovens, microwaves, and shelving equipment. Restaurants dealing in unique cuisine have additional equipment suited for their business needs, with some having more griddle table space compared to ranges for Asian cuisine.
One of the most notable changes is using convection ovens in cooking. In addition, there has been an increase in the use of combination functions, where microwaves function as ovens. Merican has welcomed these shifts as they offer more energy-efficient production for our clients and contribute to sustainability efforts.
Design and Layout Changes
Using technology in designing spaces for our clients has addressed efficiency needs and space optimization requirements. While before, clients would often go blind into the kitchen layout process, we have inculcated this into our initial consult with individuals looking to venture into the field. Commercial kitchen layout and design is vital in attaining performance goals and advancing how safe a kitchen is in the meeting is targets. Furthermore, kitchen design varies based on client requirements. Layouts created for commercial hospital kitchens vary from those created for a restaurant. Similarly, the equipment used in different spaces is different. Having incorporated this aspect ensures that new equipment designs work well in the space, with under-bench installation being considered. In addition, we also look into selecting multi-functional commercial kitchen equipment while being slim for the space.
Safety and Health Improvements
The government requires that restaurants and other commercial kitchens create food in a clean and safe environment. This ensures there is reduced risks and hazards, more so in kitchens where there is high hazard risk. Our equipment goes through testing to align to safety and performance standards in the field. Therefore, you can always rely on Merican for all your commercial kitchen needs.
With our diverse experience over the years, you can always trust that our equipment and service is aimed and promoting your success. Reach our team today for a consultation or purchase for your commercial kitchen equipment.
