Steam Table Log

The grey binder contains the steam table log for the Advanced Fresh Concepts Corporation, a company that manufactures sushi products for supermarkets across the United States. The content is sorted by four tabs: Introduction, Cleaning Calibration & Temp., Cooking, and Cooling. The blank log pages are for the employee to fill out as he or she completes the daily tasks of cleaning equipment and calibrating the thermometer that measures food temperature.
The idea behind this binder is to maintain a level of cleanliness of equipment, and provides the employees with technical instructions on calibrating the thermometer to ensure quality control over the distributed products. The steam table log, along with the sanitation log, daily log and delivery log, equip employees with the information and training required to conduct their duties.
