Chef in a commercial kitchen

Essentials For Your Commercial Kitchen

Reading Time: 2 minutes

There are many elements of a commercial kitchen that must be well thought out and integrated seamlessly into the design, creating a completely functional space that serves to heighten efficiency. In the latest blog post from Queens drive Laundry, we discuss essentials for your commercial kitchen.

Chef Wear

It goes without saying that strict dress codes should be implemented into any commercial kitchen space, from the items worn to restrictions on makeup and hairstyles, to help avoid food contamination. Chef wear is essential for all chefs in your team and should be on your priority list.

Quality chefs wear is made from breathable fabric that keeps the wearer as cool as possible in the hot environment of the kitchen. Chefs wear has a variety of other benefits which you can find out about in our previous post – The Importance of Chef Whites.

Health and Safety

The most common accidents that occur in commercial kitchens are slips, trips and falls, occurring due to a wet floor. To help avoid such accidents, wet floor signs should be available and used when appropriate.

You should also have access to fire extinguishers and fire blankets, as appropriate.


Appropriate storage is essential in any commercial kitchen. Not only does storage allow you to separate food items, it also ensures that all equipment has its own place in the kitchen, helping to avoid trips and accidental contact with potentially dangerous kitchen equipment.

Here at Queens Drive Laundry, whilst we aren’t expert chefs who can cook you a lovely meal, we can provide top quality kitchen wear for your team members. We provide the option of hiring your workwear form us, where you’ll be able to benefit from our comprehensive laundry service, or purchasing your items.
