Kitchen efficiency

Planning and preparing your time at the kitchen are the keys to making the most out of the time you spend at the kitchen. Even if you are at the house you can do this things to make a more pleasant time spent at the kitchen.

So what makes the best time management in the kitchen?
First you have to have a plan. Most people just remember the ingredients of their meals and go through them in a linear fashion. Saute garlic, brown meat, add salt, put broth and add vegetables. This way of cooking can be easy when doing just 1 dish. However adding 2 or more dishes to serve on the menu will wreck even the most concentrated chef.
The thing most people forget is that preparing meals can actually starts hours, days or even weeks before the actual cooking. Chopping a few ounces of onions before hand can mean saving hours when it comes to the cooking day itself. You can save a lot of time be slicing your vegetables the night before the big day comes. This will allow you on concentrating on the act of cooking itself
Pre-cooking meat is an open secret in many a posh restaurant. You may think that your steak has been freshly grilled but in fact it was half cooked hours before your order. Fresh lobster? Think again, that crustacean was sitting on the pot long before you sat down on your reserved seat.
Preparing sauces, oils, vinegar, sugar, or anything else can be prepared before hand. You can put them on little packets long before you start cooking. This way you can cook fabulous dishes in the time it takes to cook a pack of instant noodle soup.
Need to wash the dishes in 5 minutes flat? Organize then into size and rinse them in your sink. Let your sink fill with water and put on some soap. Pass the dishes one by one dipping and scrubbing them with speed. Do the same for everything. Then rinse them the same way. If you aren’t done in 5 minutes this is a guarantee that you can cut dish washing time by half. You wont even need a dish washer anymore. It will only slow you down.
Preparing for any situation if the real key to time management in the kitchen. If you know that you may run out of hot water for your chop suey and you have a few quarts ready to pout you will definitely save time. Writing down all the ingredients and steps with the dish your currently doing will boost your confidence and productivity.
All great cooks have several arsenals in their kitchen. And the kitchen timer is the prime weapon. Not one cook in the world can cook several meals together without a trusty kitchen timer. In fact a cook can use as many as 5 at a time. One for eggs, one for that chicken soup. One for baking and one for timing that icing mix. Several more high end kitchen timers can time all of those in one digital timer device.
A kitchen timer will mean no guesstimating if you meat is already soft enough or if your French toast has been down the oven long enough (French toasts need an oven to be done well, another secret from a chef).
Make sure you have a kitchen timer right on a convenient place on your kitchen. Free from anything that would obstruct its view and would cause it to fall. Along planning, preparation and the other techniques mentioned in this article, time management in the kitchen can be easy for anyone learn.
