Tools of the Trade
Food competition reality shows are big audience draws on television. Every day viewers can share enthusiasm with contestants vying to win a cupcake war, develop delicious dishes with secret ingredients, and chefs trying to become the last one standing to reach the top. A common thread in all shows is the use of top-notch culinary tools and equipment, just what you need for your kitchen.
Only the Finest
As you watch contestants race to get their food cooking, you’ll notice knives cut onions like they were butter, pots and pans heat food quickly and uniformly, and every range and every oven has precise temperature controls. Each equipment type is manufactured with certain cooking methods in mind. For instance, ovens aren’t merely ovens. Bake ovens are designed to handle multiple volumes of baked goods. Convection ovens are prized for their ability to cook just about anything with even, consistent results. Pizza ovens are designed to produce the crispy, chewy crust unrivaled by any ordinary home oven.

Chefs don’t want to spend more time than they have to preparing a meal. Good quality tools save time. For example, anyone who’s tried to hack through fruits and vegetables with a dull knife, is well aware of how much time can be saved with quality knives. Besides sharpness, balance, blade and handle forged as a single piece, and ergonomic grips are all factors in choosing a knife that delivers optimal performance whether it’s a paring knife, cook’s knife or Nakari knife.
Once food has been prepared and served, it’s time for cleaning utensils and equipment. Commercial dishwashers get your tools sparkling and ready for the next round. Under counter, conveyor, and front door models are available. Whatever your preference, you will find one for your needs.
You won’t find cut rate equipment used on any cooking reality show. Restaurant quality spatulas flip food in high grade stainless steel sauté pans that repose on commercial range burners. The equipment is a testament to the old idiom that you can do anything with the right tools. Regardless if the saying is 100% accurate or not, quality tools of the trade make cooking easier and more fun. Such restaurant supply online stores as Mission Restaurant Supply carry the equipment that makes your kitchen into a reality show all your own.
