A Work Station/Center Can Turn Your Kitchen (or Is It You?) into a Veritable Work Horse
Whether you’re a home cook or a professional chef, odds are you’re always on the lookout for ways to improve productivity in the kitchen. We all know that a professional in any trade can generate higher output per unit of input by using state-of-the-art tools and processes. Gourmet chefs are no exception. That's why modern kitchen work stations are typically at the top of their wish lists.
The Best Work Centers Function as Both Mobile Prep Stations and Storage Centers
By having close at hand in or on your workcenter the kitchen tools and cooking ingredients you utilize most often, you can reduce time otherwise wasted traipsing around the kitchen searching for items. Moreover, with ample, durable counter-height work surface within arm’s reach, you’ll no longer waste time having to switch from one counter to another, or cleaning or swapping out cutting boards for lack of adequate work space.
Choose a Kitchen Work Station Configured to Suit Your Needs and Budget
Work space and storage features include drop leaves and sliding cutting boards, open and closed storage and shelves made of wood, steel or even chrome wire. You’ll find wide variation in prices and styles as well. Both John Boos and Catskill Craftsmen offer open and airy prep carts with single or double shelves. Catskill, in particular, makes work centers that offer vast, deep storage or work surfaces that expand via slide-out cutting boards and drop leaves.
