Help Cook Ad - This app will not help big restaurant chefs in their daily work. What this app will help is more for small eateries, small time cooks working in food trucks, mom-and-pop eateries etc that need to serve up a lot of dishes within a short hour or two. Most of the time, waiter/waitress will take orders from their customers. They will then forward the order containing the dishes customer ordered to the cooks behind to do the dishes.
But sometimes if more than 1 customer opt for the same dish, it is more efficient for the cook to start cooking en masse for that specific dish instead. In contrast, if the cook is to prepare dishes based on each order submitted, it is not efficient as the woks or pots and utensils used for cooking, ingredients need change for different dishes within the order etc.
To configure, tap Food button and enter all the dishes the cooks is doing. Then tap Process button. This screen will be used between waiter/waitress and cook. This screen has large Plus and Minus buttons besides each dish that is configured earlier.
When order is placed on that dish, waiter/waitress tap on the Plus button. The cook will then look at the screen at all the dishes quantity order and decide which dish and how many quantity to cook first. After the cook finish cooking the dish, he/she will tap the Minus button. This mean the cook has cleared that dishes order. Repeat same pattern for other dishes. As and when the cook can also tap the Sort quantity ascending/descending button below so he/she can focus to cook which dish first.
Important points to note
- This app is not developed for dishes that require customization from customer. Customization could be made that menu dish more or less spicy. More or less oil. Menu side dish substitute with another side dish etc request.
- This app will serve those cooks that cater to the morning/lunch rush hour crowd that need to grab a quick bite before heading to office for work. The sudden influx of customers during that hour or two means the cook must cook fast and ideally same speed as the waiter/waitress taking orders!
The application support English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese display.
