The Importance of Chef Whites in the Kitchen

Reading Time: 2 minutes


It’s no surprise that white is the colour of cleanliness and when it comes to food prep, that is very important to customers. For those who are visible to customers, such as head chefs, maintaining a standard of cleanliness is a reflection on the food itself.


The colour white also provides a practical benefit. As this is the colour that is most reflective, it helps those in the kitchen to stay cool in an intensely hot, high-pressure environment.


For those really stubborn stains that just won’t budge, a chef’s white jacket can be bleached, bringing it back to life and reviving its appearance. A good laundering is all it needs to be rejuvenated and made to look as good as new.


The cotton used on kitchen uniform is breathable which again helps the wearer to avoid getting overheated. By allowing airflow, chefs are less likely to perspire heavily.


The thick, high-quality cotton used to make chef whites acts as a durable, protective layer between the skin and a hot stove or open flame. Although it can’t provide 100% protection, it prevents many injuries from occurring that could cause serious harm or scarring.


This clever design is actually a way to maintain the clean appearance of the chef. When the front of a chef’s jacket gets heavily stained, they can simply switch over the breast flaps to reveal a perfectly clean, white jacket front. No one needs to know that you have half a jug of gravy or ladle of soup underneath.

Professional Look

When a team is dressed professionally, it doesn’t just look good to customers, it also boosts the morale of the team itself, making it a beneficial investment for restaurant owners. The uniform suggests that your team of chefs are making a career in their chosen sector, rather than working in a kitchen until they decide what they actually want to pursue.
