How to Build a Smart Kitchen

Do you feel it’s time to upgrade your tired, dysfunctional kitchen to a sleeker design that not only looks good but is both smart and functional with the perfect flow?

It is expected that the global smart kitchen appliances market will be worth USD 43.83 billion by 2028, which shows exactly which direction the world is heading. What if I told you that, with the help of a kitchen design consulting company, you could have a future smart kitchen designed specifically for your needs?

Planning and designing with a kitchen design consulting company will ensure you build your kitchen according to all regulations and requirements. The consultancy company will also source all the correct equipment needed for smart kitchen installation.

Why Do You Need a Great Kitchen Set Up?

Without a great commercial kitchen setup, you may end up losing customers due to slow food production, possible contamination, and disgruntled workers.

Help eliminate workflow problems right from the start. Important things to consider in your plans need to include:

  1. Deliveries arrive at a door near your storage area.
  2. Your storage should be next to your preparation area.
  3. Your preparation area should be near your cooking area, with your plating area next to your servery.

Designing Your Smart Kitchen

There are many moving parts in a smart kitchen. Therefore, thorough and expert planning and execution with a qualified consultancy company are required. Consider the following suggestions.

Delivery and Storage for Dry Food

Make sure there is enough dry storage near the door and that you don’t have to order too many deliveries each week. Determine which dry foods the staff will use the most frequently and place them where they are easiest to reach.

Large-Scale Warehousing and Daily Use

If you have the space, you can save money by storing items in bulk and reducing the number of deliveries and purchases you have to make. The stock would then be moved to a new, smaller storage facility closer to your production facility, where it could be used more efficiently once again.

A similar strategy can be used for refrigerated items if you are fortunate enough to have the space and budget for large upright refrigeration (either a walk-in or a large storage unit) as well as smaller, “everyday” storage close to prep and cooking stations.

Prep 

You’ll need a prep area that’s all on its own. It can speed up ‌making food and help you produce more in a shorter ‌time. It also helps keep your kitchen clean and tidy, which will impress the inspectors from Food Standards!

Production

Think about where your most important production components will go in this step.

Organize your production area so that each piece of equipment can be easily accessed and that no piece of equipment interferes with the use of another. If you have the space, it may be preferable to break up large heat-emitting appliances like solid tops, fryers, and ovens in order to lessen the strain on your extraction system.

Putting on a Show

Clear a space for plating with easy access to the dishes, sauces, and tools you’ll need to do the job well. Preparation is everything, so set aside a space large enough and free of obstructions so that you can plate your items quickly and attractively.

Washup

One of the most overlooked aspects of kitchen design is the efficient washing up of dishes. However, a successful catering business cannot function without it.

Consider the wash area’s mechanics: how will you load and unload the machine? Can plates be scraped, cutlery segregated, and plates washed down separately before being fed through the machine? These are the bare essentials that every kitchen must have.

Conduct Extensive Research and Consult with Experts

Using smart appliances in a kitchen can improve users’ daily activities dramatically.

Be sure to first consult with commercial kitchen remodelers and smart home automation tech providers about your options before you spend money on smart kitchen appliances.

Your workspace can be more efficient with the help of high-tech essentials.

Control Systems 

Smart devices can control your kitchen as long as there are no compatibility issues.

The Amazon Echo and the Google Nest Hub are two cool ways to complete tasks. The days of manually adjusting things like turning on lights or adjusting temperature settings are long gone. You can now elicit an action or seek help by using voice commands or even a tap on your screen.

Intelligent Appliances

Smart appliances are constantly improving their technology in order to provide a better experience.

Here are a few of the most popular smart kitchen appliances.

Smart Cooking — Smart technology provides voice assistants that allow you to set a timer or check the weight of your food while you’re in the kitchen.

Smart Ovens — Smart ovens make cooking easier. With smart ovens, you can receive notifications when food is ready and even control the oven remotely from a smartphone. Some allow you to share recipes via Wi-Fi.

Smart Hobs — These hobs allow you to cook large or multiple dishes at the same time and are an excellent choice for discerning chefs. Some smart hobs automatically connect to an extractor hood, making cooking even easier.

Smart Refrigeration  Smart refrigeration does not cool your food, but it allows you to keep grocery lists, create a recipe index, watch TV on the display, leave short notes and reminders, set expiration dates for kitchen staples, and do a lot more.

Coffee Machine Timers — these allow you to set a timer and control temperature settings.

Conclusion

Working with a kitchen design consulting company will ensure they build your smart kitchen design ideas according to all regulations and requirements, along with sourcing all the food service equipment you’ll need.

Whether you want to get great workplace flow, the next-generation refrigerator, or the latest state-of-the-art kitchen equipment, creating a smart kitchen that works is the perfect idea for your space.
