Increasing your productivity when in the kitchen can produce great results and it is something that we can all improve on. Being a chef, time is of the essence, and there is not a second to waste.
So, if you want to improve your productivity in the kitchen, we have a few tips for you.
Meet the exact standards
This may seem like you’re actually doing the reverse by spending the time to meet all of the exact standards that your workplace sets out.
Over time this will make your productivity much higher because there will be less margin for errors which means you will spend less time rectifying errors.
When you have mastered a skill, it will only improve further and in many cases decrease the time that it takes. Learning all of your classic skills means that the time it takes to complete all of the basic tasks will improve massively.
Your classic techniques are at the heart of improving your productivity and efficiency of your kitchen and you as a chef.
Ultimately, if your workstation is unorganised, then you will also be unorganised. Keep your workspace tidy and organised by cleaning up as you go and understand how you work best.
Make your working space right for you, whether you work in a methodical order or you want all of your equipment in one place. Customise it, so it works well for you and stick to this.
Focus on Your Strengths
As a chef, if you are in the position where you can delegate tasks to others, use this to make yourself more productive. Focus on what your strengths are and then just take any of the extra tasks on to help out the team and get the job done.
If you know you’re weak at something, don’t try and take on all of these tasks during dinner service – delegate and work on this skill in your own time.
