Rethermalizing Food: Three Key Considerations. Many commercial kitchens depend on previously-cooked or pre-prepared entrees and sides. In order for these food items to be safely prepared for a quality dining experience, they must be rethermalized. When it comes to choosing the correct system for rethermalizing food, there are three key considerations to make.
Consideration One: Control
Because the food has already been cooked prior to the rethermalization process, it’s important to ensure that the food doesn’t dry out or overcook while it’s being heated. To that end, careful temperature control is absolutely necessary.
Consideration Two: Labor Effectiveness
A primary reason for a commercial kitchen to rely on pre-prepared foods in the first place is to save labor in the direct lead-up to the meal. If the rethermalization process is labor-intensive, then the entire process is undermined. Whatever system is used must be simple and labor-saving.
Consideration Three: Durability
A rethermalization system that is both easy to control and labor effective would be of little use if the process could not be repeated. Whatever system is used must be designed to last for the long haul, made from durable system components.
