Induction Cooking

Induction Cooking: How Can It Help Your Restaurant?

The basic methods of cooking have remained the same throughout history – apply heat to food. Most cooking methods today are done in an oven or on a cook top, with the classic cook top being either gas or electric. However, a third option for cook top cooking is quickly growing in popularity: induction cooking.

Induction Cooking is the process of heating a cooking vessel (the pot or pan holding the food) through magnetic induction rather than from a flame or an electrical heating element.

Induction Cooking

Induction cooking was first introduced in the early 1900s, but struggled to grow in popularity due to high price tags and foreign technologies. Advances in technology and manufacturing in the last few decades have highlighted the advantages of induction cooking, and price tags have become more reasonable as competition increases.

The main difference between induction cooking and tradition cooking is how the food is heated. Traditional cooking requires heat – a flame or electrical heating element. A pan is set on this heat source, which heats the pan, and then heats the food inside. With induction cooking, the element itself does not warm. Instead, electromagnetic properties in the element interact with induction specific pans, which heats the pan, and then heats the food inside.

Induction: Pan Warms when in Contact with Element –> Cooks food

Traditional: Element warms –> Warms pan –> Cooks food

Induction cook tops are great solutions for many operations, but it is important to understand the good and the bad new equipment, and how they compare to that of traditional cooking options.

Induction Advantages

  • Speed
    • Induction cook tops boil water almost twice as fast as a gas range. How? Induction captures about 90% of the heat generated in the pan compared to 40% and 70% with a gas and electric cook top.
  • Safety
    • With no flame, there’s no grease fires. No combustion. No gas leaks. In a similar fashion, electric stove top elements get extremely hot and can easily burn operators.
    • Induction cook tops only get warm because the pan is hot – just as any surface would that a hot pan is on.
  • Cleanliness
    • Smooth, ceramic-glass plate is easy to wipe down. Element stays relatively cool through the cooking process so food does not “burn” onto the element.
  • Energy Saving
    • Induction cooking requires specific cookware where the magnetic energy heats the pan, then heats the food. Traditional cook tops heat the element, which heats the pans, which heats the food. Less energy usage means lower utility bills.
  • Precision
    • Gas cooking is often sought after because of the ability to easily control the heat to the food. Induction offers even more precise cooking than gas – no m ore burn spots!

Induction Disadvantages

  • Price
    • Because the technology is relatively new, induction cook tops are more expensive than traditional cook tops. However as the demand increases, more competition will increase efficiencies and drive the price down.
  • Cookware
    • Induction cook tops require specific cookware that contains iron that will react with the magnetic field.
  • Sound
    • At high settings, the cook top can make a hum or buzz sound from either the vibration from the magnetic field or a warped bottom of a pan.
  • Scratches
    • The glass top of induction cook tops is fragile just like an electric cook top. Carefully set down heavy cookware and avoid sliding around cookware with a rough bottom.
  • Repairs
    • Because the technology is relatively new, repairs will be more expensive when necessary.

Turbo Air: Creating Energy-Efficient Commercial Refrigeration

Turbo Air

If you’re In the market for new commercial refrigeration and are looking to save money on energy use, look no further than Turbo Air. Turbo Air strives for less energy consumption and better performance throughout their line of commercial refrigerators and freezers, while keeping the size of the compressor the same.

Central Restaurant Products has Turbo Air’s full line of refrigeration products to help you find the solutions you need at competitive prices. Oh, and free shipping too!

Why Choose Turbo Air?

Turbo Air equipment includes several energy efficient technologies that save you money on utilities and prolong the life of your equipment. In fact, they have over 80 products qualified under the latest Energy Star guidelines. By purchasing Energy Star rated equipment, you could qualify for rebates from your utility company.

Other benefits include:

Self-Cleaning Condenser System

Turbo Air units are known for their self-cleaning condensers. When you have a high traffic area that produces a lot of dust, the ability of the condenser from properly reducing heat becomes compromised. This results in lessened efficiency. The self-cleaning condenser system cleans the condenser using a rotating brush that moves up and down 2-3 times per day. This prevents any dust build-up, which keeps your unit running efficiently.

Energy Saving Fan Controller

Every refrigerator has a fan motor, which runs continuously throughout the day to circulate cold air. The fan generates a lot of heat when in use. When the compressor is not running, that means the fan can start circulating warm air instead of cold.

To combat this, each Turbo Air refrigerator has a fan controller, which is used to strategically stop the fan motor from running once an increase in temperature is detected within the unit. This can translate into 15% to 25% in overall energy savings, as well as an increase in the lifespan of the compressor.

Larger Condensers

For higher efficiency, Turbo Air uses condensers sized 10% to 20% larger than the industry standard more efficiently draw heat from your condenser coils.

LED Interior Lighting

Turbo Air units use LED interior lighting, which not only are more energy efficient, but also use optimal light angles for enhancing your display effects.

Commercial Hood Systems - Central Restaurant Products

Restaurant Hood System: Why it Matters and Everything Your Kitchen Needs

The Importance of a Restaurant Hood System

restaurant hood system is an essential piece of equipment for a safe commercial kitchen. These ventilation systems are the first line of defense to preventing fires in the kitchen. Restaurant Hood Systems are designed to remove heat, smoke and grease laden vapors that are generated while cooking to keep your commercial kitchen running safely and efficiently. With proper airflow established, these systems also reduce odors, improve air quality, and lower energy consumption in your commercial kitchen. In addition to all of these crucial benefits, kitchen ventilation systems are required by fire and health inspectors as well as insurance providers.

Components of a Hood System

Vent Hood

Placed over cooking equipment. Designed to remove excess steam, water vapor, heat, grease, smoke, odor and flue gas from the kitchen environment. Available in two types – type I or type II

Hoods require hood filters. Filters are available in stainless steel, galvanized, or aluminum; Welded or riveted in construction.

Baffle Filter

Series of vertical baffles that live within the hood. The filter captures grease and drains it away into a container. Designed for easy removal for cleaning.

Exhaust Fan

Gets the air moving within the system – taking the “poor” air out of the kitchen. Installed on the outside of the building.

  • Belt Drive Fans
    • Driven by belt and motor pulley
    • Friction caused by belt can decrease efficiencies and cause more repairs
  • Direct Drive Fans
    • Blade fan wheel directly attached to axle
    • More efficient system with less moving parts and maintenance

Make-Up Air Unit

Brings in clean air to circulate through the kitchen to “make up” for the grease laden air being suction out by the fan. Installed on the outside of the building.

Variety of Hoods

Hood systems are made in a variety of types, styles, sizes, and shapes to best fit restaurant kitchens around the world. There are two primary types of hoods, as well as 6 styles.


Type I          
  • Used for the collection and removal of grease and smoke
  • Always include listed grease filters or baffles for removal of grease
  • Required over restaurant equipment that produces smoke or grease-laden vapors. This includes: fryers, ranges, griddles, broilers, ovens, tilt skillets, etc.
Type II           
  • Considered general hoods for the collection and removal of steam, vapor, head and odors, where grease is NOT present
  • May or may not have grease filters or baffles
  • Typically used over dishwashers, steam tables, and the like
  • Can sometimes be used over ovens, steamers, or kettles if determined that they do not produce smoke or grease laden vapors


Wall-Mounted Canopy Mounted flush with a wall and used for all types of cooking equipment located against a wall
Single Island Canopy Ceiling mounted over a single line cooking island and used for all types of cooking equipment
Double Island Canopy Ceiling mounted over a back to back cooking island and used for all types of cooking equipment
Backshelf Hood Used for counter height equipment. Normally located against a wall, but are also used as freestanding units
Eyebrow Hood Used for direct mounting to ovens, as well as some dishwashers
Pass-Over Style Hood Used over counter-height equipment when a plate pass-over configuration is required

When Are Hood Systems Required?

Hood systems are required in commercial kitchens where heating elements are used. Over stoves, fryers, grills, tilt skillets, etc. The size and type of system required depends on the type of equipment being used and the number of cooking units. Note that manufacturers now offer some ventless hood options where the units are self-contained with powerful fans. These units open up opportunities for kitchen design and use of the unit.

The size and style of restaurant hood system needed for a kitchen varies greatly depending on the equipment used and local codes. It is best to work through your specific kitchen layout with an industry expert for assistance purchasing the correct system. Our team of knowledge and friendly product consultants is always ready to help at 800.215.9293

What Hood Filter Does My Kitchen Need?

Two things to consider when selecting the right hood filter for your commercial kitchen are the volume of product being cooked and the visibility of the kitchen to customers. A high volume kitchen requires a heavy-duty filter to withstand the abuse it will be receiving, so a stainless steel or galvanized filter would best. Additionally, if the kitchen is visible to customers, a shiny filter such as stainless steel would be most attractive. Of these two considerations, the durability of the filter should be the primary concern.


  • Stainless Steel
    • Most durable and easiest to clean
    • Best for high-volume operations
    • Attractive, shiny finish
    • Most expensive material option
  • Galvanized
    • Strong and long lasting
    • High performance at an affordable price
    • Stands up to degreasers and cleaning chemicals
    • Metal may become discolored after using cleaning chemicals
  • Aluminum
    • Light weight and affordable
    • Prone to corrosion and damage
    • Attractive, shiny finish
    • Cannot use harsh degreasers and cleaning chemicals


  • Welded
    • Baffles are made from the same single piece of metal as the frame
    • Back and front are welded together
    • Rigid and durable design – won’t easily bend
    • Heavy duty and long lasting
  • Riveted
    • Made of multiple pieces held together by rivets
    • Series of individual baffles inside filter
    • Somewhat flexible allowing rivets to loosen over time
    • Less expensive, but less durable option

When Should Hood Filters Be Replaced?

There is no standard time frame of when hood filters should be replaced. While the filter could last a couple of years in some kitchens, it could last only 6 to 8 months in another. Factors to consider:

  • Type of filter
  • Type of operation
  • Level of maintenance

It is important to inspect hood filters on a regular basis for wear or damage. When a filter is damaged, it cannot effectively do its job and becomes a fire hazard. If a filter is worn, clogged, damaged, or has excessive grease build up, it should be replaced right away.

When purchasing a new hood filter, it is important to know that the actual size of the filter is about half an inch less than the size listed.There is no standard sizing for hood filters. Keep baffles vertical to measure your filter and know that the vertical dimension is followed by the horizontal dimension.


  • Actual size: 9-5/8″ x 15-3/4″ x 1-3/4″
  • Filter size: 10″x16″

Hood Filter Cleaning

Regular upkeep of your hood filter keeps your kitchen safe. If the filters are ignored, grease can build up and cause a number of problems including poor air quality, excess heat, increased utility costs, and fire hazard. A regular cleaning schedule will prolong the life of your filter and overall system, but keeping a safe and clean kitchen.

  • Dishwasher
    • Run commercial dishwasher on highest temperature
    • Avoid harsh cleaners
    • Inspect that all reside was removed before drying
  • Soak Tank
    • Investment that saves time and labor
    • Fill soak tank with water and add safe cleaner
    • Soak filter overnight and rinse in the morning before reinstalling
  • Hand Wash
    • Use hot, soapy water and non-abrasive sponge
    • Avoid using harsh chemicals
    • Dry immediately after washing

Determining the Right Mixer for your Pizza Operation

Picture your perfect pizza. Maybe you have a sense of adventure and load your pie with pineapple, bacon and jalapeno. Perhaps you enjoy the classics like pepperoni or sausage. If you love all types of this dish, then you’re the perfect candidate for opening a pizza restaurant.  A quality dough mixer is the heart of any pizzeria and will be vital to creating fresh dough.  As such, you will need to apply critical thinking and strategy when making your purchase decision.

Spiral or Planetary

Two types of mixers used to make dough are spiral and planetary.   Either type will make dough; however, each has their advantages.

Spiral mixers are typically designed for dough applications only.  Because they consist of a spiral-shaped agitator that remains stationary while the bowl revolves around it, they mix, or knead, only a portion of the dough at one time, gently developing the gluten structure without overworking the dough.  Because less friction is created, the temperature of the dough remains lower versus a planetary mixer where the dough hook is constantly in contact with the dough.  If you are purchasing high-quality flour, you may want to consider a spiral mixer over a planetary mixer.

Planetary mixers are more versatile and allow you to mix other products, while a spiral mixer is designed for dough only.   Planetary mixers feature an agitator that turns on an offset shaft while the mixing bowl remains stationary.  Multiple mixing attachments, including flat beaters, wire whips, and dough hooks, also make the mixer versatile.  Will you be mixing your own pizza sauce, salad dressing or other recipes?   What about vegetable processing?  A planetary mixer typically has an attachment hub which accommodates vegetable slicing, cheese grating and meat grinding.

Determining the Size of the Mixer

As with other pieces of equipment in the kitchen, determining the capacity of the mixer is important.  What is the biggest batch you need to make?  Will you be doing small batches daily or larger batches less frequently?  Fresh and frozen storage capacity – how much storage – will also play a big factor in determining the size of mixer needed, along with labor scheduling.  For example, pizza dough can be mixed in large batches weekly and stored versus making fresh daily.

The biggest factors in determining the size of mixer needed is the type of dough (thin crust, hand tossed, deep dish) and the batch size.  The type of crust depends on the moisture content of the dough.  What is the moisture content (also known as the absorption ratio) of the dough?  Absorption ratio percentage is determined by taking the recipe’s water weight divided by the flour weight. The easiest example is a 50 lb. bag of flour mixed with 3 gallons of water.  Water weighs 8.33 lbs. per gallon so the water weight of this recipe is 24.99 lbs.   Rounding up to 25 lbs. makes the math simpler. 25 divided by 50 equals .50, so the dough has a 50% absorption ratio and the total batch size is 75 lbs. (25 lbs. of water + 50 lbs. of dough).

Looking at the capacity chart published by the manufacturer, an operator can quickly determine the correct size of the mixer for a recipe based on the absorption ratio and the total batch size.

For the example above, Globe’s recommended mixer is the SP62P.  Typically, the lower the AR, the less amount of dough (batch size) can be made for each batch of the recipe.

Purchasing a Planetary – What to consider with regards to features and options.

If you are purchasing a planetary mixer, there are several other things to consider with regards to features and options.  Let’s start at the top.

What type of controls and timer are being used and where are they?  There are mixers with digital timers or mechanical timers, and mixers with no timers.  There are mixers with the timer and controls on the front of the mixer and others who have them on the side.  One advantage to having the timer and controls on the front of the mixer is the ability to see how much time is left on a batch from across the kitchen versus those with the timer on the side.  Digital timers are more accurate than mechanical timers, providing consistent batch results of the same recipe.

What type of transmission does the mixer have?  Gears, belts or electronic speed control (variable speed motor)?  All three have pros and cons.  Generally, gears are preferred when mixing dough to provide torque under a heavy dough load.

Does the mixer have an attachment hub that will increase its versatility?  Attachments like adjustable slicing plates for vegetable prep, or shredder and grater plates for cheeses, lettuce and cabbage or a meat grinder for burgers, sausage, meatballs or meatloaf.

What type of bowl guard is on the mixer?  Is it removable?  Does it have a built-in chute to add ingredients, like oil or seasoning, during the batch without stopping the mixer?

Does the mixer have bowl clamps to secure the bowl to the yoke?  Are they spring tensioned to securely hold the bowl in place or does it just sit on a pin allowing the bowl to rattle during operation?

Does the bowl swing out, requiring a bigger footprint? This is an important consideration when kitchen floor space is crucial.

Does the mixer have a manual or a power bowl lift? There are pros and cons to both.  A power lift allows the bowl to be raised or lowered easily; however, they add cost as a secondary motor is required.

Do you need a bowl truck? Bowl trucks allow the operator to maneuver the bowl around the kitchen on a dolly.  Does the bowl dolly have ergonomic handles that assist in steering the dolly and the bowl without the operator bending over?  Does the bowl truck comes standard with the mixer or is it an additional accessory that adds to the cost?

The Life-Cycle Cost – What you need to know about the Design of the Mixer, Warranty, and Parts

With either type of mixer, life cycle cost is an important consideration.  Finding out the purchase price of the mixer is easy.  What is more important is the life-cycle cost.   How long is the warranty?  One-year or two years?  If something does go wrong after the warranty is over, how much will it cost to repair the mixer?  Looking at replacement parts pricing before purchasing a mixer can save you a lot of money after you purchase it.   If the controller goes bad, how much will it cost to replace it?  Where can you purchase those parts?  Who will service the mixer under warranty?  Can you use your own servicer or does the manufacturer dictate who will service it?

The picture of your perfect pizza, the one with bacon, pineapple and jalapenos can be made much better with the right mixer for your operation.   From a 5 qt. countertop planetary mixer to a 175 lb. spiral dough mixer, Globe has a mixer for your application.  Click here for more information on Globe floor mixers, and here for countertop
