It’s a well known fact that kitchens during busy seasons or rush hours are always busy and it can be easy to neglect safe practices in favor of saving time. Safety should always be a food service establishment’s top priority in order to keep a sanitary kitchen and prevent injuries during food prep.
Proper Cutting Techniques
Step one when dealing with knives and other sharp kitchen equipment is preventing cuts or injuries. The key is learning proper cutting or slicing techniques to ensure that knives are being handled properly and are kept in working order.
When slicing or cutting food products, always ensure the food is placed on a flat surface to prevent food items and knives from moving. Cutting boards are an ideal option as they provide a stable and reliable surface for easy use.
The most important tip when dealing with knives is to always cut away from yourself while cutting, never towards, and keep knives sharp. Dull knives take longer to cut or slice and stand at a higher risk of causing injury. Cutting towards yourself also poses a larger risk should your hand slip or food items move unexpectedly.
To help keep hands safe while using knives and other sharp objects in the kitchen, look no further than our Nitrile Rhino Gloves. They are puncture resistant and offer a seam at the wrist to ensure they don’t fall off while sharp knives or tools are in use.
