Kitchen Ideas / March 8, 2018 /
While thinking of food preparation, you must consider some main appliances. For example, will you need an extra sink and if so, make sure that is at least nine inches deep to prevent splashing. The versatile nature of the unit allows you to introduce a cooktop with vent hood overhead or flexible butcher block if needed. Also, one often overlooked detail is whether or not you would like to have accessible outlets on your island – it is essential if you are using the space for food prep – blenders, mixers, etcetera devices will be grateful if you think about that matter in advance.
Most kitchens have a sink, a refrigerator, and a stove installed in a specific pattern that allows for storage, prep, cooking and cleaning. In a kosher kitchen, you'll need two overlapping triangles for meat and dairy. That means double sinks and double stoves, and many prefer double dishwashers and refrigerators as well. This means that kosher kitchens need more pre-planning than the average kitchen and since there won’t just be double appliances, but also silverware, dishes, bowls, pots, pans and glassware, storage is going to be one of your primary concerns. In some cases, not only are meat and dairy supposed to be stored separately but so are unleavened breads for Passover.
