Chef's hats - hygienic headwear for the catering industry.

The chef's hat is the trademark of every cook and simply belongs in the professional kitchen. But a chef's hat is not only a nice tradition. The headwear also has very practical reasons: First and foremost, it's about hygiene in the kitchen. As everywhere where food is handled and dishes are prepared, the staff must wear special hygiene clothing - from head to toe. In the catering industry, it is especially important to wear hygienic headwear. It is required by law and also by the HACCP guideline.

Franz Mensch is a specialist in hygienic clothing and disposable products. Of course, here in our online store you will find a wide range of hygienic disposable chef's hats that meet the highest standards - and also fit into your budget planning.

Chef's hats are ideal for the kitchen. Because especially in the catering kitchen it is hot. Anyone who has spent several hours at the stove, grill or oven knows how quickly you start to sweat. A chef's hat absorbs the sweat from the forehead and prevents it from dripping into the eyes and onto the food. Therefore, it is important that the chef's hat is made of a particularly absorbent material and is very skin-friendly. This way, your kitchen staff will be happy about a particularly high wearing comfort. Nice side effect: a chef's hat keeps the hair back and prevents the proverbial "hair in the soup".

Traditionally, you can also tell by the height of the chef's hat, the rank of the person wearing it. In this way, the chef's hat distinguishes the chef from the sous chefs, apprentices and kitchen assistants.

 

Disposable chef's hats vs. cloth chef's hats: disposable has a clear advantage

Disposable chef's hats are worn much more frequently in the modern kitchen than cloth chef's hats. This is mainly for hygienic reasons. Because with disposable products, you can be sure of always having a fresh, hygienic product on hand. But there is even more to be said for disposable chef's hats:

  • no time-consuming washing necessary
  • can be changed immediately in case of heavy use
  • size can be individually adjusted, fits any head size, no need to stock different sizes

Excursus: The history of the chef's hat

The Frenchman Marie-Antoine Carême is considered the inventor of the chef's hat. Initially, it was customary in the kitchen to wear a white cap in the shape of a balloon, which hung rather limply on the head. When Carême cooked for the Congress of Vienna in 1821, he found that his cap did not look good enough. So he stabilized the inside of the cap with a stiff paper ring and the chef's hat stood up steeply like a chimney. Today's shape of the chef's hat was invented. Even today, the chef's hat "crowns" the cook and must convince both visually and practically. Franz Mensch has been a specialist in disposable chef's hats for over 40 years.
