Our Favorite Space-Saving, Time-Saving Kitchen Solutions

Not every operator has the room – or even the need – for a full-scale professional kitchen. Some bars have tiny kitchens while some have no kitchen at all. The good news is that operators don’t necessarily need a large kitchen or dedicated cooking area to prepare food in their bars. Just like tablets and phones have gotten smaller, so have ovens and other cooking equipment. Let’s take a look at three of our favorites.


If you have a 3-burner or large gas grill, the BakerStone Pizza Oven Box is exactly what you need to cook an array of fantastic food items. As the name implies, this device makes cooking pizza a breeze, producing pizzeria-quality pies in mere minutes (in some cases as fast as 2 minutes). But the BakerStone can also be used to roast meat and vegetables. Want to make breads and cookies? Looking to cook fish? Grab a BakerStone – you won’t be disappointed.
