Picture this: It’s during the dinner rush in your kitchen. Tickets are coming in at a steady rate. Used plates are stacking up, and your dishwasher calls in sick. Again. Table six wants to substitute their side for steamed broccoli. You see that the broccoli container in the walk-in is about half full and doesn’t have a label. How long has that broccoli been there? A day? A week? You’re trying to decide what to do, and then your sous chef drops an entire pan of risotto on the floor.
Unless you’ve been on the frontlines yourself, it’s nearly impossible to understand the stress of a mealtime rush. It’s both physically and mentally draining. Throughout the shift, urgency and precision are essential. Any time-saving measures or organizational improvements are welcomed.
Due to the high pace of busy hours, every kitchen–even those who take pride in cooking meals from scratch–relies on prepping and properly labeling food ahead of time. NCCO offers products to help kitchens increase efficiency, stay organized, and ensure food safety. One product a kitchen can’t do without is the DateCodeGenie®.
Improving Kitchen Limitations with the DateCodeGenie
Kitchens can only operate within the space they are given. There’s only so much space on the grill and in the fridge and freezer. There’s even limited space for kitchen employees to stand! Every inch counts. And kitchens can save time, increase productivity, and reduce food waste with an accurate food labeling system.
If you’re not yet familiar with it, the DateCodeGenie system is a cloud-based, centrally managed, and fully customizable automated labeling system. It’s housed in high-quality, kitchen-grade stainless steel and includes an easy-to-use touchscreen and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Kitchens with especially limited spaces would benefit most from our smaller versions of the DateCodeGenie – the DateCodeGenie Fit and DateCodeGenie Lite. Both versions contain the same great features as their bigger brothers but have a smaller footprint and more portability.
The DateCodeGenie system offers several unique designs to support your kitchen. If you need dual printers, a compact design, or a better way to organize your kitchen, we can help.
