Bar Strainers Is Essential When Running A Restaurant
Bar strainers are tools used for filtering unwanted ingredients in alcoholic beverages such as beer, wine and vodka. Used traditionally with white wine or spirits, these devices enable you to serve your favorite drinks without fear of contaminated glasses clogging your glasses or being left-over mess on the table. The invention of this instrument made possible the creation of more complex recipes that were otherwise too difficult to prepare or too expensive for the average person to indulge in.
A bar strainer is a metal bar tool used to extract ice from a cold mixed beverage as it's poured to the serving glass. A kind of siphon machine, the strainer is placed on the top of the cup or glass where the drink is prepared; tiny holes in the device enable only liquids to flow out as the drink is poured slowly into the glass. As the liquid travels down the drain, it leaves the crystalline ice crystals behind, preventing them from being added to other drinks. In order to ensure that no ice crystals end up in your glass, you'll need to pour the drink quickly into a glass that will prevent any solid ice chunks from making their way down the drain. This way, you avoid any cold coming from the bottle or can into your glass.
Bar strainers were originally made using simple materials consisting of brass tubing with small holes at the other end. The early strainers had a very poor design, however, and it's hard to imagine how anyone could make such an inefficient tool to work properly. However, modern strainers have both blades and screw-like handles, allowing for ease of use while ensuring that nothing gets stuck in the process.
Because of the high degree of efficiency that modern strainers feature, it's no surprise that these tools are widely used all over the world. While they can be used for many different home uses - creating multiple glasses at the same time, transferring wine directly from one bottle to another, or even for simply stirring things up - they're also frequently used in restaurants. Restaurant owners often use the strainers - to reduce the amount of time it takes for their guests to get their meals on the table. By reducing the time it takes to prepare food, restaurants can save money on their budgets, which they can then use to invest back in the business. Bar strainers can also be used as part of an employee appreciation program - companies that offer discounts to employees are sure to find that using the equipment reduces employee turnover, which is important to maintaining a happy and healthy work environment.
Of course, in restaurants, the strainers are most often used for pouring just a few glasses at a time. If you're making just one drink at a time, then you won't need anything fancy. However, if you're creating several different drinks at once - such as a cocktail for two, a Martini for three, a Side Car pours for four - then you may want to consider buying a bar strainer that has a wider, thicker head, which will help reduce the amount of lost foam when pouring the drinks. These larger strainers tend to also have longer necks, which allows for the easy transfer of the drink from one glass to the next. The longer necks also prevent foaming the drink as soon as you pour it, allowing it to take full taste and be enjoyable for your guests. If you prefer glasses without any air bubbles, then these are also available, but make sure you use them sparingly.
Glass strainers are also useful for taking glasses from one glass to another. While many people are used to lifting the glass by hand, using this method can be risky, as you might knock the liquid out of the glass, which could result in spillage and injury. Therefore, some restaurants opt to use strainers instead, to prevent accidents. And while there are a few disadvantages to using glass strainers, such as their size and limited mobility, there are advantages as well, such as allowing you to pour all the drinks you want without having to use a glass.
Bar stage is another important aspect of restaurant management. This is where the bartenders are trained to handle bottles of different liquids, and how to mix them correctly and use techniques such as staining, spinning or shaking. A barstager is not simply able to fill glasses, but they are trained to mix drinks, make cocktails and do other entertaining jobs at the bar.
The most important factor is that the bar stager can get the job done and can complete his or her job well. If the bar stager isn't up to the task, then another bartender may be called in, or another part of the staff. The problem with this however, is that sometimes bar stagers are busier than the others and unable to cope with the job on their own. As such, it's important that you, as a manager, work with them to find someone who can cope with the pressure and learn to do their job properly. Bar strainers help solve this particular issue and prevent the bar from suffering.
