For years, the passion and creativity of chefs has been dependent upon a number of factors: manpower, quality ingredients, standardized practices and reliable tools.

Recently, Middleby announced the debut of its patented air filtration technology, Bluezone by Middleby. The technology is designed to purify indoor air and destroy 99.9995% of infectious airborne particles according to a laboratory study. Currently in use by the U.S. military, the patented solution is always active and kills microbes, bacteria, mold and other indoor space contaminants.

Refrigeration control is one of the most critical aspects of any foodservice operation.

The phrase “The Hot Fridge” might seem like a contradiction in terms. But chefs who use the Evereo® from Unox® know that’s exactly what it is: new technology that preserves cooked meals for days at the precise temperature at which they’ll be served.
