Nope, the coats get quite dirty. Better on my coat than on me, considering that most of the stains are grease that was hot when it landed there! Sure, it gets pretty hot but I don't really notice it when the pressure is on.
Kimmie, about the hair, I have long hair so I just tie it back and make a pseudo-bun just below the hat. With half a gallon of hair spray, there's no chance of me losing my hair in the soup kettle! I could never understand why in some establishments they require people with long hair to wear hair nets, whereas short haired people get away with wearing nothing. If the hair is tied up, it won't go anywhere! If it's short and loose, it's completely free to fall in the food... One of life's mysteries I guess!
By the way, I always hated those toques too; we have to wear them at school. :rolleyes: Actually, they are cooler than the commis hat so it does make some kind of sense I suppose..
