Time Management is Crucial in a Restaurant

 One of my favorite pieces of kitchen equipment is my countertop mixer.  They are so versatile and come with a variety of mixing utensils including a dough hook, batter beater, and wire whisk.  I can’t imagine mixing everything that I use this for by hand, it would take hours! 

Take whipped cream for example.  Fresh hand whipped cream is so much better then that fake stuff that comes in a can.  In order to make fresh whip cream though, you have to whip the cream for a long time.  It’s a great workout for your arm, but a huge waste of time for your kitchen.  Countertop mixers such as the 20 qt. Planetary Mixer from Berkel can whip your cream in a fraction of the time!  Plus, you don’t have to babysit the machine so you can do something else while the cream whips.  I’m a huge multi-tasking fan (I do work in a kitchen after all). 

The Berkel Mixer comes with 5 speed options, one of which is a blend speed which eliminates your mixture from splashing.  Yes, we have all seen a commercial/movie/TV show where they “forget” to put the top on a blender and the mixture goes all over the kitchen.  This mixer comes with a bowl guard as well as a 15 minute max timer that will allow you to select an automatic shut off time.
