Hi @icekitten97 . Welcome aboard! That is just one the reasons that I am still in love with cooking and the crazy world of being a chef. There is always something new to learn and play with. It is always an adventure and if someone is bored with cooking, they ain't trying. Glad to have you with us!
The original post that started this thread :~) Doesn't appear to be a competition, but if competing floats a person boats, so be it, have at it. If your Mom made dinner, take a picture. If some likes pretty, composed plates that get to the table cold, that too is all good. Take out in cardboard containers, okay. If it is hot, sloppy, poor lighting for taking pictures plates, that is great, bring it. Whatever got you to the party, enjoy. I can't speak for @mrmexico25 but I...
Watch your sense/cents and the dollars will take care of themselves.

As is clearly shown by the back and forth on this thread, different people view situations differently. That is life. No one sees eye to eye with everyone. No one fits into every kitchen that they walk into. If you find a kitchen that you don't fit into, move on. Find one where you do fit in. You can't change other people. You can change your place of employment.
Very cool idea! Thanks.
About the only time I need much freezer space on the line is if the fryer is dropping lots of frozen product. If this is not the case, I would probably go with 4 drawers for refrigeration. Even if in the future your needs changed to where you needed to stock lots of frozen product for the fryer for service, you could stock refrigerator drawers with frozen product for service without any thawing and return to freezer after service. The reverse not so much.
