What's expected from kitchens


Accept bookings and avoid canceling

When a booking request comes through respond promptly and make sure you plan for the booking to avoid cancelling. Cancelling within 7 days could leave your kitchen with a negative review.


Stock up on essentials

The kitchen must provide cleaning products, towels, fryer oil etc, so keep these items stocked and on-hand for the bookings.


Make it easy for the chef

  • Set-up a lock box and allow easy access to the building with clear instructions.
  • Detailed handbook - the more details you put in the handbook the better you will find the kitchen after the booking. Leave it empty and you can’t expect the chef to do exactly what you’d like.
  • Cleanlisness process and standards - if you have existing hygene and cleaning processes send them to Cookitoo and adk fo them to be included in the handbook.
  • Extra tips - if htere are any nuances to the kitchen like, stand on one leg and turn the stove ingnither thrice before using the front left burner, then include that. Again the more info you can provide the easy it will be.
