Bread and batter stations are portable worktables dedicated to seasoning food items before they are deep-fried. These stations are composed of multiple parts with separate pans and baskets for batter and breading tasks. The trick behind the crispy crust and delectable taste of nuggets, wings, or shrimps is the breaded or battered coating. Products are dipped in a batter or breading mixture, which often causes a mess. These units are workstations that can streamline this process, improving the food prep and cook line.
Bread and batter stations are self-contained. They have a high-quality stainless steel body with a removable breading pan, a batter dip pan, and a sifter pan. Some manufacturers allow you to configure the place of each part depending on your choice of workflow. For example, you can specify left or right-hand workflow if you buy Henny Penny batter and breading stations. The heavy-duty casters make these units mobile. Therefore, you can do the seasoning task right next to your commercial deep fryers. The result is a more efficient work line with less hassle, mess, and product waste.
Preparing items for deep frying is a breeze with bread and batter stations. You can keep your batter and breading mixture in two separate pans, and the products can be dipped in the mix with a dunking basket. This basket can be spring-loaded in some models. For instance, Giles bread and batter stations have the optional configuration of a spring-loaded dunking basket. The basket in the dip pan is raised by springs, minimizing human contact during food prep. Sifting the breading mixture can also be automatized. You can demand a motorized sifting action, maximizing the breading usage.
You can also prefer a cabinet-style bread and batter station. Thus, you will have a closed storage for your breading, batter, and kitchen utensils. These mobile stations house every part needed for the seasoning of fried items. All these components are disassembled and cleaned in a dishwasher easily. Chef’s Deal also offers fry dump stations to keep your fried products hot and crispy.
