We at AC Services (Southern) are issuing a stern warning to everyone of our customers: don’t leave it to the last moment to order your oven cleaning products or to book a service! At this time of year, even though we are fully aware that Christmas Day is always 25 December, it always seems to explode rather than creep up on us. Trust a company that has over 20 years experience of festive seasons, there is always something that you might have forgotten. And from our experience, it’s often ordering oven cleaning products. Look at it this way: the difference between receiving your Rational cleaning products before Christmas or waiting until afterwards, is an awful lot of time-consuming and tedious manual cleaning and worst case scenario, appliance failure when you need it most. The most important piece of equipment in your kitchen over the Christmas period is your Rational oven. Its performance is critical to your reputation and your baseline profits. It really doesn’t matter whether you have the top chef in the country, without his basic weapon he is as useful as a chocolate teapot.
Plan AheadFor commercial caterers, Christmas is all about planning. You have ingredients to buy, turkeys to source, extra staff to employ, menus to design…the list is seemingly endless. It’s a rare breed of manager who plans everything to perfection months ahead. And we know that the oven is probably the last thing on your mind, especially as Rational ovens are so thoroughly reliable. Rational ovens are one of the best professional kitchen cooking appliances on the market today. They can be pre-programmed to perform almost any combination of cooking methods, including roasting, grilling, frying and broiling. But work on the scenario that it’s better to be safe than sorry. The best way to prepare your oven for the extra strain it’s going to be under during the coming weeks is to ensure it is fully serviced in advance. There’s really only one bullet point to tick off:
- Make sure that you have plenty of oven cleaning products in stock. Most professional ovens, (and Rational Self-Cooking-Centres in particular), have automatic cleaning programs built into their software. When used with the right Rational cleaning products (which ACS Southern always hold in stock), you get cosmetic and hygienic cleanliness.
