Italian Kitchens From Past To Present

Jun 10, 2008
Arguably the most important room in the house is the kitchen. In many houses it is the hub of the house and is the room that is used more than the others. More than just a room where food is prepared it has now become the major room in the house in which families socialise. The main function of the kitchen nevertheless is that it enables people to prepare food in a sanitary and comfortable space.

The kitchen room of the house typically provides a space for storing food, an area for food preparation, a method of cooking the food and also an area where waste can be disposed of. Modern kitchens also tend to have an area where people can sit and eat the food that has been prepared.

Whilst kitchens have always comprised of somewhere to make food, somewhere to store food and somewhere to cook food modern kitchens take these roles a little further. Modern kitchens contain appliances that make these functions much easier. Kitchens often include sinks for cleaning and preparing food to be cooked as well as cleaning away after food has been prepared and eaten. The cooking section of a kitchen has developed from fire cooking to electric ovens which make it simple to regulate the cooking of the food.

Dishwashers have also come into use to make the cleaning up process much easier. The refrigerator has revolutionised the world with people now able to store food safely for weeks without having to worry about it going off quickly.

Modern kitchens also contain appliances such as microwave ovens. These devices are used to heat food quickly. It is often used as an effective method of reheating food and has become an item that is found in nearly all kitchens. Many kitchens also have a use beyond food preparation and socialising.

Many kitchens often have a washing machine for keeping clothing clean and also an ironing board for ironing. This means that the kitchen is also the room in which many households keep their clothing clean and prepared for the people that live there. It is often the busiest room in the house as many of the daily activities take place in the kitchen. As a result the kitchen is very often considered the heart of the house. This is because most kitchens contain a table at which the family congregate to take their meals. As a result it is one of the main areas in the house in which people socialise.

The role of commercial kitchens is slightly different to the kitchens at home. Commercial kitchens are designed to create food quickly, cleanly and in the most efficient ways possible. This means that the focus of the commercial kitchen is to create food. These kitchens rarely invite diners to sit in the kitchen as there is often a separate dining area.

These kitchens often have to take a very strict approach to cleanliness in order to appease public health laws. These establishments are as a result regularly checked by health officials so that the food that is served is cooked properly. These kitchens are often designed with a close eye on making sure that food is prepared efficiently. The kitchen is as a result designed to make it easier to prepare large amounts of food for many different people.
