Top Kitchen Assistant related questions

What skills should I look for in a kitchen assistant?

Kitchen assistants need a good understanding of health and hygiene since they are responsible for maintaining cleanliness in the kitchen. They must know how to wash, clean, and sanitise correctly. It is also crucial for them to have good communication skills. They work closely with chefs and supervisors, so they must listen and present solutions when needed. 

What is the difference between a kitchen assistant and a line cook?

A line cook’s focus is on preparing meals. They prepare, cook, and plates food for customers. They are usually put under the supervision of the head cook or chef of the kitchen. On the other hand, a kitchen assistant has all-around tasks. They are responsible for cleanliness in the kitchen, organising inventory, and preparing ingredients.

When do I need to hire a kitchen assistant?

Kitchen assistants are always good to have in the kitchen. They are usually hired by restaurants or catering services when they fall short on staff. Sometimes, one is hired when looking for a replacement for a staff member. They clean the workstations, help with preparations, and organise storerooms, so having one on-call is always good.

Do I need to provide tools for the kitchen assistant I hire?

It depends. A kitchen assistant is hired to help an entire kitchen and its staff. Some bring their own utensils and machines while others don’t since these are already provided in the workspace. If you have tools available, you are free to ask your Tasker to use them. If they want to use their own, they can do so too.

What do kitchen assistant services include?

When the kitchen gets a little too busy, hiring extra staff is helpful. You can look for kitchen assistants near you to help distribute the many roles in the kitchen. Those working in the hospitality industry rely a lot on kitchen hands. They play a vital role in the workspace. They work closely with supervisors and chefs to help with day-to-day tasks. Furthermore, they are also responsible for assisting chefs, cooks, or managers. Their services include assisting in kitchen preparations, maintaining the cleanliness of the kitchen, and organising the inventory.  

Assisting in kitchen preparations

Kitchen assistants help in cooking preparation. It is a common task assigned to them by supervisors. Most duties revolve around food preparation, including washing, peeling, chopping, and cutting ingredients. Sometimes, they also do simple cooking tasks like boiling and frying.

You can hire a separate Tasker to be in charge of cooking meals. They are also assigned to support chefs in their workstations. They make sure that chefs have everything they need for meals. Kitchen assistants may prepare salads and desserts, too. Aside from food, they also ensure workspaces, utensils, and machines are ready for the day’s service. 

Maintaining cleanliness in the kitchen

Kitchen assistants are also responsible for maintaining cleanliness in the kitchen. These include cleaning dishes and storing everything after washing. They also clean and sanitise benchtops, work surfaces, floors, and walls. The hospitality industry pays close attention to good sanitation. So, a kitchen assistant near you is there to assist if you’re looking to hire part-time staff.

Organising supplies and food inventory

Organising inventory is also a task for kitchen assistants. They may start by unloading food supply deliveries before sorting through the deliveries and packing them in the storeroom. Kitchen assistants sort, store, and distribute ingredients to the chefs in the kitchen. This is important when working with different catering services. With an organised kitchen, assistants will have no problem communicating with supervisors and chefs.
