The happy, well-fed customers who visit the publically-accessible parts of your restaurant or club have only the vaguest idea of what goes on in the kitchen. They’d likely be shocked by just how much time your staff has to spend cleaning. If you’d like to cut down on that amount of time – and improve your kitchen’s overall cleanliness – then Kitchen Soak Tanks are well worth your consideration.
How Soak Tanks Work
A soak tank is an innovative way to streamline your kitchen cleaning process and cut down on the time and labor involved in cleaning all sorts of metal containers. Soak tanks let your immense pots, trays, grills, baskets, and even hood filters in a sealed water tank. Waterproof heating elements take the tanks up to 85 degrees Celsius for several hours, allowing environmentally-friendly cleaning agents to break down even the toughest grease and carbon.
Soak tanks are the next-generation solution to keeping the hardest-working equipment in your kitchen clean. They save on labor, extend the life of many different valuable types of equipment, and reduce your overall costs significantly. They’ll also help to get rid of the bottleneck in the workflow of your kitchen staff that time-consuming cleaning procedures often cause.
Advantages Of Soak Tanks
Some of the benefits of using a soak tank have already been noted above. To expand further on the subject, you’re likely quite familiar with the fact that pot scrubbing is one of the most loathed, labor-intensive, and time-consuming jobs in the kitchen. Soak tanks use technology to replace elbow grease, doing the job faster, cheaper, and more effectively.
Besides saving you money immediately by reducing labor costs (and boosting morale), soak tanks will also save you in the long term. By keeping a lot of valuable equipment cleaner than ever before, you can dramatically extend its overall lifetime and reduce the frequency of which you require replacements. Equipment that’s cleaned more frequently and thoroughly will also deliver better results throughout its extended lifetime.
Purchase Vs. Rental
Like most dependable pieces of commercial-grade kitchen equipment, soak tanks aren’t cheap. If you’d like to minimize the cost of installing one in your kitchen – or simply try one out before committing to an expensive purchase – you may be able to rent one on a monthly basis. Most vendors who offer this service also integrate regular service so that your maintenance and restocking requirements are virtually nonexistent.
Of course, once you’re convinced of the benefits of soak tanks, you’ll likely be ready to invest in buying one of these powerful cleaning tools for your kitchen. You’ll find that despite the relative novelty of soak tank technology, the equipment produced by most manufacturers is already incredibly robust. Useful, trouble-free lifespans of ten years or more are the rule rather than the exception. This ensures that you’ll get your money’s worth out of a purchased soak tank.
There are few commercial kitchens that wouldn’t benefit from the installation of a soak tank. They’re available in many different sizes and capacities, and installation and training are a snap. Why not step up to a higher standard of cleanliness today?
