Kitchen Essentials Are you making the most of your kitchen? Do you know your Fillet knife from your Paring knife? Do you always overcook your rice? This kitchen guide will help you use your kitchen that little bit better and make you an expert in the kitchen in no time! Work Triangle The 3 most used components of a kitchen are the stove, the sink and the refrigerator. If you draw an imaginary line between these 3 points you form the work triangle. The aim of this method is to have the 3 areas the most efficient distance apart and to minimize traffic through the work zone. Work Triangle Stove Refrigerator Sink The Basic Principles Each leg of the triangle should be between 4 and 9 feet. The total of all three legs should be between 12 and 26 feet. No obstructions (cabinets, islands, etc.) should intersect a leg of the work triangle. Household traffic should not flow through the work triangle. Know Your Knives Bread Bread, Meat, Produce.
