Everything needed to optimize kitchen operations and improve efficiency can be found on the pages of the Cook's 2009 Buyers Guide or on our website

Restaurant Owners and Foodservice Directors can expect to find the hottest new products in restaurant equipment and supplies in the Cook's 2009 Buyers Guide. There is a special emphasis on Green Products such as new biodegradable food containers and Energy Star equipment choices to fill the growing demand of an environmentally conscious marketplace. The Cook's 2009 Catalog mails in early March to restaurants, universities, schools and long term care facilities across the US. With almost 200 pages of products, including over 400 new kitchen equipment and supply items just introduced this year, restaurant owners and chefs alike are sure to find the right kitchen supplies for their operation. All of the products included in the catalog, and many more, are available at, along with a link so restaurant owners, chefs, catering companies and even home cooking enthusiasts can sign up to receive a catalog in the mail.

The first eight pages of the Cook's Buyers Guide are dedicated to new product introductions. Exciting new products, like the Hobart 3000 Series Heavy Duty Slicer, are featured in this section. The Hobart 3000 Series Slicer delivers the ease of use that operators have asked for and the increased performance owners demand with special features like simplified controls, improved geometry for better product visibility, and an optional removable knife for easier cleaning. The Mirage™ Induction Range from Vollrath is also a featured item. This single burner induction range can be set up anywhere that can reach an outlet and allows chefs to bring their food closer to the customers rather than trying to get customers to come to them. Several energy efficient products, like the newest True Refrigerator are included in the catalog. A new section of the catalog is filled with the latest catering supplies and includes new products like Rave Displayware or MirAcryl™ Mirrored Display Trays, from Carlisle, which enhance food presentation for special events or upgrade dining room buffets and cafeteria displays. These new products are also a great way for grocery stores and convenience stores to enhance their prepared food counters and attract customers. Environmentally friendly products that are in the catalog, such as the 100% compostable and biodegradable Harvest Collection™ Hinged Containers and Biodegradable Flatware, can help businesses and organizations in their efforts to go green. Chefs will also be able to find all the kitchen basics, from a chef's knife to precision thermometers and even oven mitts, at a great value in Cook's very own brand of products that you can't find anywhere else.
