wearing a ring in the kitchen

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just got engaged. (My mom is relieved, thought I'd end up single all my life).

Question: Do you leave your ring on you when you're working? I know you're meant not to have any sort of jewellery whatsoever on you when you're working (sanitary reasons etc), but oh well... Thought it wouldn't hurt asking.

congratulations, i am also engaged, good luck with all the planning get started soon because there is a lot to go

in the kitchens i have worked in they let people wear wedding bands but noting with stones in them because stuff can get stuck under the stones. but a band isnt to bad if you wash your hands and wash under them a lot you should be ok

It's not so much because you might get food stuck in them as much as it is a safety question.Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry that could become caught in machinery. or say your stone falls out of the band into the food your serving someone bites down on it and ....ouch suit.

Around these parts, a plain wedding band is the only legally acceptable adornment that can be worn in a kitchen... it is pretty cut 'n dry.

What Jim said.
And even then I wear gloves as often as possible.
I'll go through a half a box a day if need be.

put the sanitation aside, A friend of mine tore the walkin apart looking for her diamond that was NEVER found. a suggestion is to wear it on a necklace under ur shirt.

I have always done as older female chefs have advised. You string your rings on your apron strings.

No watches, no bracelets. (I loop my watch around one of the buttons on my coat).
