What to Look for When Buying Kitchen Protective Apparel

If you’re looking for wholesale kitchen aprons, potholders, oven mitts and other protective gear, consider the following:

1. Branding

Colorful aprons printed with your restaurant or organization logo look great and can help with branding and marketing. When your cooks and kitchen staff look professional, it makes a positive impression on customers.

2. Materials

Materials determine the quality of protection and the maintenance of your protective apparel. Look for materials that offer as much heat resistance as possible but that can also stand up to stains and frequent washing.

Polyester is very stain-resistant and resists color fading — a smart choice for aprons. Silicone is heat-resistant, making it a good solution for oven mitts, since little heat will transfer from a hot pan to the hand inside the mitt. Terry cloth is made from 100% cotton and is a popular choice for mitts because it can be cleaned easily. If you choose any kind of cotton oven mitt, look for commercial grade material, which will offer more heat resistance.

3. Coverage

Splashes, spills, burns and other kitchen hazards can happen at any time. Look for products that help keep staff safe while allowing them plenty of flexibility.

For example, aprons with pockets can help kitchen staff keep both hands free. Baker’s pads are another flexible option that can be used as potholders, oven mitts or counter wipes. They are thick enough to protect surfaces from heat and absorbent enough to clean up messes fast.

Why Buy Kitchen Protective Apparel in Bulk?

Buying kitchen aprons and other protective gear in bulk just makes sense. When you buy in bulk, you ensure there’s plenty of items on hand. Kitchens are busy spaces, so when someone reaches for an oven mitt, you need to make sure it’s there. When you buy wholesale potholders and other equipment, you can make sure every part of your kitchen has the right gear at all times.

Kitchen aprons and other commercial kitchen equipment experiences a lot of wear. You don’t want your staff wearing stained aprons or using thin oven mitts that have seen better days. When you buy wholesale oven mitts and other items in bulk, you can rotate your gear and ensure staff members work safely. You can also wash items frequently and still have enough protective apparel for everyone.

Kitchens operate under strict guidelines and regulations. When health inspectors visit, having bulk quantities of high-quality kitchen protective apparel on hand shows you’re serious about safety.
