  1. Kitchen Fire Safety

    Please don`t let this happen to you.

    70 Customers and staff were evacuated this week from a restaurant in Barnet.

    The fire started in the restaurants extraction system.

    A London Fire Brigade spokesperson warned that restaurants had a duty to make sure their kitchens are properly cleaned: “Restaurant and take-away owners should always take care to make sure their extraction systems are kept clean as a build up of fat and grease within the filters can lead to a fire.”
    “Crews had to extensively cut away ducting, which ran from the ground floor to the roof of the building, to find out where within the extraction system the fire was located,” explained the spokesperson, adding that the cause of the fire was believed to be “accidental”, due to cooking igniting grease and fat which spread through the inside of the ducting.

    As business owners we have a responsibility to ensure the safety of all of those who enter our restaurant. It is expected that you have the canopy and extraction system checked and cleaned every year.

    If you need help or any further information, please do call us.

  2. Make the Perfect Pizza

    4 Steps to the perfect Pizza, a great piece from our colleagues at Linda Lewis.

    Renowned pizza equipment suppliers Linda Lewis Kitchens urge independents, delivery outlets and chains alike to invest in their 4 steps to pizza perfection, to keep up with the ‘big guns’ in the £5bn and ever-growing pizza industry.

    With pizza cravings increasing year on year, seeing more families indulge in the tasty treat at least once a week, the experts at LLK recommend four pieces of kit to meet the demand, speed up production and maximise profit.

    Now is the time to put the elbow grease back in the cupboard and take the first step to an easier pizza-producing life with LLK’s Cuppone dough mixer. This powerful piece of kit can mix dough in just 20 minutes, whilst perfectly oxygenating the mix without overheating it.

    Forget the mundane task of dividing, weighing, and rounding the dough; LLK would like to introduce you to the Fruilco divider and rounder combi. That’s right, two tasks obliterated by one robust machine! This clever piece of Italian manufacturing is completely automatic and can work independently without supervision and will never call in sick, a.k.a. the perfect employee!

    Hand stretching pizza bases eats into production time and into profits, so why not produce up to 400 perfectly uniformed bases in an hour using LLK’s Cuppone heated press? This reliable piece of kit has heated plates which seal the dough, ensuring even cooking and lowered cooking times. Each dough ball is pressed in a matter of seconds and involves no skill, making this stage of pizza production child’s play!

    The final piece of the puzzle in the quest for pizza perfection is LLK’s revolutionary Giovanni oven. This traditional Italian stone hearth oven uses the most modern technology to help pizza restaurants increase production by up to 20%. The Giovanni’s rotating cooking floor makes loading and unloading effortless and skill-free, and allows the user to produce pizza perfection.

    The proof is in the pudding, or in this case in the pizza! Managing Director, Linda Lewis says “The most important thing to consider when investing in pizza equipment is quality. We wanted to encourage our customers to experience the benefits of our equipment first hand, speak to Advantage Catering Equipment to arrange a demonstration visit.

    If you need anything Pizza then we are the guys to speak too. Take a look at our range of Pizza equipment, there is so much more so if you need anything you don`t see then please call and ask.

    Pizza, Invest to keep up with the Big Guns.
