Kitchen crews cope with heat wave

By Pizza Today


Kitchen crews cope with heat waveTemperatures have spiked above 90 degrees in many parts of the country this month. While air conditioning units struggle to offset the blistering heat, kitchen workers try to find ways to stay cool.

Even with overhead air conditioning and strategically placed fans, restaurant kitchens can reach extremely high temperatures with their 500- to 900-degree ovens. A few Maine restaurants have found ways to cope with the heat, according to the Bangor Daily News. Here are tips to help your kitchen staff beat the heat:

  • Keep a pitcher of electrolyte-infused water in the cooler and encourage employees to replenish often.
  • Have wet, frozen towels available for workers manning ovens.
  • Watch for signs of heat exhaustion — fatigue, dizziness and becoming light-headed.
  • Discourage employees from drinking beverages that can accelerate dehydration, like coffee.
  • Keep morale up, as tempers tend to flare in extreme heat.
