LOW TEMPERATURE
COOKING INTRODUCTION
Welcome to the
cost saving convenience
of Low Temperature Cooking.
In 1968, Alto-Shaam invented the first
automatic, commercial cook and hold oven
featuring the principle of Halo Heat. The
heating method provided by Halo Heat low
(aging) action for more tender, flavorful
meat; and preserves natural juices along
with nutritional values in all foods. Halo
Heat cooking reduces energy cost, cuts back

on labor and handling and solves kitchen
encircles the entire cooking and holding
ventilation or oven hood necessary in most
consists of an electric thermal cable that
chamber. This creates a gentle blanket or
HALO of radiant heat — surrounding food
with a consistent and uniform temperature
with no air movement inside the oven
compartment. This gentle heating concept
cooks at low temperatures and at a high
level of humidity to preserve product
moisture, flavor, and nutrition. Halo Heat
ovens are designed to convert automatically
from a cooking temperature to a holding
temperature where the product can remain
until it is ready to be served.
Halo Heat is an entirely different system
of cooking. Utilizing this uniform heat
source, Halo Heat dramatically reduces
meat shrinkage; provides natural enzyme

space problems. There is no mechanical
areas so the ovens can be moved wherever
they are needed.
Read this booklet carefully. Halo Heat is
a cooking system that requires minimal care
once you have learned the basic principles.
For best results with many products, we
recommend you start your cooking cycle the
evening before — for serving the next day.
In many areas, off-peak power rates are also
lower at night.
If anything you cook in a Halo Heat low
temperature cooking and holding oven
doesn’t meet your highest standards of
quality, please contact one of our food
service professionals for help. Usually, only
a minor change in procedure is required.

MEAT AND NUTRITION
Low temperature cooking does not destroy these
enzymes and, particularly in the hold cycle, creates
Meat plays a significant role in the diet;
therefore, one of the primary goals in food
preparation is proper nutrition. Meat is one of the
best sources of protein; is a rich source of B
vitamins such as thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin;
and includes fats, carbohydrates, minerals,
pigments, enzymes and water.
All of these elements are affected by cooking,
but over-heating destroys many of them. Low
temperature Halo Heat cooking helps preserve
unstable, heat-sensitive vitamins and nutrients.
A report on the Nutrient Analysis of Roast Beef,
conducted by the University of Wisconsin-Stout
in July 1971, concluded, “…it is apparent that
Alto-Shaam cooking method results in lower
moisture losses. Even after a 24 hour holding
period, the Alto-Shaam product is nutritionally
equal to, and possibly better than beef roast cooked
in a conventional oven and removed immediately
after cooking.”
Fat contributes greatly to the flavor of meat.
During the cooking process, fat not only melts, but
also changes chemically. With low temperature
cooking there is less chemical change and less fat
melt resulting in a more flavorful finished product.
this natural chemical action to tenderize or age the
meat right in the oven. For this reason, it is
important to use fresh beef and it is essential to
allow the product to remain in the hold cycle for
at least the minimum amount of time suggested
in the individual procedures. The longer meat is
left in the hold cycle the more tender it becomes,
making the purchase of more expensive, aged
meat unnecessary.
Meat is seventy to seventy-five percent water.
High temperatures cause this water to evaporate
during cooking resulting in loss of product
moisture. Cooking at low temperatures in a Halo
Heat oven retains the maximum amount of water
content resulting in a juicier finished product and
an extended holding life.
Along with better nutrition, a more tender
finished product, less shrinkage and higher
moisture content, meat will not require the addition
of as much salt as needed with conventional
cooking methods. Natural flavors are preserved.
This is a significant factor in today’s health
conscious diets.
The enzymes found in meat break down the
tissues and act as natural tenderizing agents. A
premium price is paid for aged meats where this
enzyme action has already started, however;
enzymes are destroyed by high temperatures.

SHRINKAGE CONTROL AND COOKING TIME
THERE ARE TWO MAJOR FACTORS CONTROLLING
MEAT SHRINKAGE OR COOKING LOSSES.
1. Temperature at which meat is cooked:
The higher the temperature at which meat is cooked
the more shrinkage will result. Over-cooked meat
also results in higher losses. Higher temperatures
and over-cooking draws moisture to the surface and
this moisture evaporates or drips out of the meat.
2. Internal temperature of the meat:
Like over-cooking, as meat is brought to a higher
internal temperature shrinkage is increased. For
these two reasons, it is suggested most cuts of red
meat be cooked at 250°F (121°C) and that all cooking
be based on internal product temperature. The use
of a thermometer is encouraged.
THERE ARE FOUR MAJOR FACTORS INVOLVED IN
DETERMINING COOKING TIMES FOR MEAT:
1. The degree of aging on the meat:
Aged meat will cook faster, shrink more, and has a
much shorter holding life than fresh meat.
2. Internal temperature before cooking:
Meat should be placed in a preheated oven directly
from a refrigerated temperature of 38° to 40°F
(3° to 4°C). Meat cooked from a frozen state will
require approximately one and one-half to two times
the normal cooking time. In addition, freezing
ruptures tissue cells creating additional moisture
loss during the cooking process and will result in
more shrinkage.
3. Desired degree of doneness:
The higher the degree of internal temperature
required, the longer the necessary cooking time.
Cooking times in this guideline are based on the
most popular internal product temperatures.
4. Quantity and quality of product.

PREVENTING BACTERIA GROWTH
The surface of raw meat may become contaminated
in processing, handling by the butcher or chef, or by
other means. Food contamination can also be caused
by unsanitary personal hygiene and work habits,
unclean slicers, knives, and probes, or by faulty
operational procedures. It is important, therefore, that
SECTION 1 •
sanitary procedures be followed at all times during
food preparation and handling. This is your main
protection in guarding against food contamination. For
additional information see the Cleaning and
Maintenance section of this manual.

LABOR AND EQUIPMENT COST REDUCTION
Halo Heat ovens are easy to operate and maintain. After the raw product is placed in the oven and the
controls are set, there is no need to check, stir, or adjust the time or the temperature. Minimal time is spent
attending the product during cooking. This advantage, combined with the automatic conversion to the hold
cycle, frees key personnel to concentrate on other tasks including final product and presentation.
When cooking in a Halo Heat oven at a
temperature of 250°F (121°C), outside venting and
expensive exhaust hoods are not necessary in
most areas. Kitchens remain cooler, lowering
energy costs by reducing the exchange of heated
air. Because the ovens do not need outside
venting, they can be put almost anywhere — in
the corner of the kitchen, on a buffet line, or in a
banquet room. The ovens can also be built into a
counter or to save space, can be stacked in
combination with another Halo Heat oven or
holding cabinet of the same or similar
dimensions.
Cooking at low temperatures also reduces
cleaning time. Most food does not normally
carbonize or burn on the interior of the oven.

OVEN CHARACTERISTICS
The oven is equipped with a special, low-heatdensity, heating cable. Through the Halo Heat ®
concept, the heating cable is mounted against the
walls of the cooking and holding compartment to
provide an evenly applied heat source, controlled
by an oven sensor. The design and operational
characteristics of the unit eliminates the need for a
moisture pan or a heat circulating fan. Through
even heat application, the food product is cooked
evenly and provides the ability to hold foods for
longer periods of time.
START-UP
1. Before operating the oven, clean both the
interior and exterior of the unit with a damp
cloth and any good commercial detergent at
the recommended strength. Rinse surfaces by
wiping with a sponge and clean warm water to
remove all detergent residue. Wipe dry with a
clean cloth or air dry.
2. Wipe d oor g askets and control panel dry with
a soft cloth.
3. Clean and install the oven side racks, oven
shelves, and external drip tray. Shelves are
installed with curved edge toward the back
of the oven. Insert the drip pan on the interior
bottom surface of the oven.
4. Before op erating the unit with product,
become familiar with the operation of the
controls. Read the following "Control
Description" and "Operation" section of this
cooking guide and begin by operating the
various control functions.

cooled, followed by reheating for hot
food holding, must be reheated to
165°F (74°C).
The temperature of
165°F (74°C) must be maintained for
a period 15 seconds.
Always follow federal and local health
(hygiene) codes for the time and internal
temperature required for reheating products.

OPERATION
O P E R AT I O N
C H E F O P E R AT I N G T I P S
1. For cooking specific products, refer to
individual cook and hold instructions.
2. To set time, turn the timer knob past the
required number of hours, then immediately
bring it back to the correct setting.
3. When cooking at 250°F (121°C), it takes
approximately one hour for the cooking
temperature to decrease to the selected
holding temperature. During this one hour
time period, the product will continue to cook.
4. The cooking times in this guide are based on
meat taken directly from a refrigerated
temperature of 38° to 40°F (3.3° to 4.4°C), and
placed in a preheated oven. Adjustments must
be made for cooking products at other than
refrigerated temperatures.
5. It is recommended the oven door remain
closed during the cooking cycle. Opening the
door will only increase the length of time
necessary to cook the product.
6. Puncturing an item with any sharp instrument
may introduce bacteria inside the product.
Avoid using a fork to handle products, and
11. Since there is no air
movement inside the
Halo Heat ® low
temperature cooking and
holding oven, condensation will
form on the inside of the door during
operation and may leak out of the oven door
vents. This is a normal operating condition,
however; any condensation spilling on the
floor should be periodically wiped as a safety
precaution. There is an External Drip Tray
included as standard with most ovens.
12. Drip pan overflow is a condition caused by
cooking some cuts of beef to an internal
temperature in excess of 130°F (54°C). The
External Drip Tray will help alleviate some of
this overflow problem. There is also an extra
large drip pan available as an option for the
1000-TH series ovens.
13. Overflow may also be caused by overloading
the oven compartment. DO NOT OVERLOAD
THE OVEN. Follow the recommended load
capacities listed in each individual procedure.
14. For best results, many products should be
cooked on an overnight cook-and-hold basis.
Consult individual procedures for this
recommendation.
always use standard sanitary methods when
handling any food item.
7. Use a thermometer to check the internal
temperature of a product. Be certain to
sanitize the thermometer before each use.
8. Aged meat will cook faster, shrink more, and
cannot be held as long as fresh meat. Because
of the tenderizing capabilities of the oven, aged
meat or tenderizing agents such as M.S.G. are
not necessary, and are not recommended.
9. When cooking full loads, never cook below the
second shelf spacing from the bottom of the
oven compartment.
10. Fully clean the oven interior, drip pan, shelves,
and side racks on a daily basis.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
CLEANING AND PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
PROTECTING STAINLESS STEEL SURFACES
CLEANING AGENTS
It is important to guard against
corrosion in the care of
stainless steel surfaces.
Harsh, corrosive, or
inappropriate chemicals can
completely destroy the
protective surface layer of stainless steel. Abrasive
pads, steel wool, or metal implements will abrade
surfaces causing damage to this protective coating
and will eventually result in areas of corrosion.
Even water, particularly hard water that contains
high to moderate concentrations of chloride, will
cause oxidation and pitting that result in rust and
corrosion. In addition, many acidic foods spilled
and left to remain on metal surfaces are
contributing factors that will corrode surfaces.
Use non-abrasive cleaning products designed for use
on stainless steel surfaces. Cleaning agents must be
chloride-free compounds and must not contain
quaternary salts. Never use hydrochloric acid
(muriatic acid) on stainless steel surfaces. Always use
the proper cleaning agent at the manufacturer's
recommended strength. Contact your local cleaning
supplier for product recommendations.
CLEANING MATERIALS
The cleaning function can usually be accomplished
with the proper cleaning agent and a soft, clean
cloth. When more aggressive methods must be
employed, use a non-abrasive scouring pad on
difficult areas and make certain to scrub with the
visible grain of surface metal to avoid surface
scratches. Never use wire brushes, metal scouring
pads, or scrapers to remove food residue.
Proper cleaning agents, materials, and
methods are vital to maintaining the appearance
and life of this appliance. Spilled foods should be
removed and the area wiped as soon as possible
but at the very least, a minimum of once a day.
Always thoroughly rinse surfaces after using a
cleaning agent and wipe standing water as quickly
as possible after rinsing.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
The cleanliness and appearance of this equipment will contribute considerably to operating
efficiency and savory, appetizing food. There is an important relationship between
cleanliness and food flavor and aroma. Good equipment that is kept clean works
better and lasts longer.
Under normal circumstances, this oven should provide you with long and trouble-
free service. There is no preventative maintenance required, however, the following
Equipment Care Guide will maximize the potential life and trouble-free operation of this oven.
2. CLEAN THE EXTERIOR OF THE CABINET
WITH A STAINLESS STEEL POLISH.
1. CLEAN DAILY
Disconnect the oven from the power source.
Remove all detachable items such as wire
shelves, side racks, and drip pans. Clean these
items separately. Clean the interior metal
surfaces of the oven with a damp, clean cloth
and any good commercial detergent or grease
solvent at the recommended strength. Use a
plastic scouring pad or oven cleaner for
difficult areas. Rinse carefully to remove all
residue and wipe dry.
To help maintain the protective film coating on
polished stainless steel, clean the exterior of the
cabinet with a cleaner recommended for
stainless steel surfaces. Spray the cleaning
agent on a clean cloth and wipe with the grain
of the stainless steel.
3. CHECK OVERALL CONDITION
OF THE OVEN ONCE A MONTH.
Check the oven once a month for physical
damage and loose screws. Correct any
problems before they begin to interfere with the
operation of the oven.
NOTE: Avoid the use of
abrasive cleaning
compounds, chloride
based cleaners, or
cleaners containing
quaternary salts.
Never use hydrochloric
acid (muriatic acid) on stainless steel.
Always follow appropriate state or local
health (hygiene) regulations regarding
all applicable cleaning and sanitation
requirements for equipment.
SECTION 3 •
4. CHECK THE COOLING FAN
IN THE OVEN CONTROL AREA.
CLEANING
While the oven is warm, check that the cooling
fan in the oven control area is functioning.
The fan is located on the back of the unit,
toward the top.
AT NO TIME SHOULD THE INTERIOR OR
EXTERIOR BE STEAM CLEANED, HOSED
DOWN, OR FLOODED WITH WATER OR
LIQUID SOLUTION OF ANY KIND. DO NOT
USE WATER JET TO CLEAN.

TWO-STEP FRIED CHICKEN
The two-step method consists of precooking the chicken in a low temperature oven to retain the product moisture, then
adding the crisp, fried appearance by inserting the product in a fryer for a very short period of time. This method can
be used with product directly from the oven or the product can be precooked and fried directly from refrigerated
storage. With the two-step method the chicken will be moist, flavorful, plump and golden brown. Shrinkage will be low
and shortening in the fryer will last much longer.
FRYING DIRECTLY FROM THE OVEN
1. Preheat fryer to 335°F (168°C).
2. If heavier or crisper breading is desired, remove
required portion of chicken from the oven and dredge
in fresh breading.
3. Drop chicken in fryer for three minutes or until
chicken is golden brown.
4. Chicken can be fried per customer order or in larger
quantities. When frying larger quantities, place fried
pieces on a sheet pan with wire grid insert and place
pans in a preheated Alto-Shaam display case or in a
preheated holding cabinet with door vents fully open.
FRYING FROM REFRIGERATED STORAGE
1. Remove chicken from the Alto-Shaam Halo Heat oven,
wrap, chill rapidly and store under refrigeration at
38° to 40°F (3° to 4°C).
2. Preheat fryer to 335°F (168°C).
3. Remove required portion of precooked chicken from
refrigerated storage.
4. Drop chicken in fryer for 6 to 7 minutes or until
chicken is golden brown.
The time and temperature are suggested guidelines only. All cooking should be based on internal product temperatures.
Due to variations in product quality, weight and desired degree of doneness, the cooking timer may need to be adjusted accordingly.
Always follow local health (hygiene) regulations for all internal temperature requirements.

C. Insert a thermometer into the center of the
product to determine if the correct internal
temperature has been reached.
D. When following the procedures in the
individual product cooking instructions,
additional cooking time should not be
necessary. If, however, the required
internal product temperature has not been
reached after the product has remained in
the “ HOLD ” cycle for the one hour minimum
time period, additional cooking time may
be added. Use the same “ COOK ”
temperature set for the original cooking
period until the correct internal
temperature has been reached.
In the United States, FDA food code requires
products such as red meat to remain in
“HOLD” for a specified time period. This
holding time requirement is based on the
internal product temperature desired for the
finished product and includes the one hour
time period while the oven decreases from
the cooking temperature to the holding
temperature and the product continues to cook.

A. For maximum product tenderizing and to
reduce labor during peak preparation
hours, it is highly recommended that many
products be cooked and held overnight.
Refer to individual cooking instructions.

10. DETERMINING IF PRODUCT
IS SUFFICIENTLY COOKED
A. Allow “COOK” timer to cycle to the
“OFF” position.
B. Before opening the oven door, leave the
product in the “ HOLD ” cycle for a minimum
one hour. This time period will allow the
oven temperature to decrease from the
“ COOK ” setting to the selected “ HOLD ”
temperature. During this one hour period,
the product will continue to cook and
smoke will continue to penetrate into the
food.

A. Any overproduction must be removed from
the oven, wrapped, quickly chilled, and
refrigerated. Product can be removed from
refrigeration and returned to the oven for
reheating the next day.
B. Products must be reheated at a temperature
range of 250°F to 275°F (121°C to 135°C).
Refer to individual cooking instructions for
the correct thermostat setting for the
product being reheated.
C. Length of time necessary to reheat a
product depends on the type of product and
the quantity to be reheated. Time should be
based on internal product temperature. Use
a pocket thermometer to sense the internal
product temperature of the reheated
product. Follow local health (hygiene)
regulations for the internal temperature
required for reheated products.
12. SMOKING PROCEDURE OPTIONS:
Many of the procedures listed in the front section of
this guide can be adapted to the Alto-Shaam Smoker.
1. Follow the load capacities for the 750 series ovens.
2. Follow the cooking and holding temperatures and
times listed.
3. Set the Smoking Timer for the amount of smoke
flavor desired.
A.ONE-STEP COOKING:
After the cook timer cycles to the “OFF”
position and the minimum number of hours in
the HOLD cycle have elapsed, the product may
remain ON HOLD until serving time.
B.TWO-STEP COOKING:
United Sates food code requirements indicate
cooked foods that have been cooled, followed
by reheating for hot food holding, must be
reheated to 165°F (74°C). The temperature of
165°F
(74°C)
must
a period of 15 seconds.
be
maintained
for
Remove product from the oven after the
minimum number of hours in the HOLD cycle.
Chill product quickly and prepare for
refrigerated storage. Refrigerated product can
be sauced and finished on a char-broiler, in a
convection oven, a combination oven/steamer
or in a salamander for a la carte service. This
process takes between 8 and 15 minutes and
insures a tender, juicy and fresh tasting
product. When using cook/chill processing
techniques, products have an extended storage
life of 5 days which includes the day of
preparation and the day of service.
CARE and CLEANING
1. Disconnect the oven from the power source.
2. Clean oven cavity, wire shelves and drip pan daily,
at the end of each cook, smoke and hold cycle.
3. Refer to Care and Cleaning instructions in Section 3.

Insert probe of thermocouple thermometer into the center
of the middle salmon fillet located in the top shelf
position or central shelf position when smoking a full

of the salmon must not exceed 77°F (25°C). For this
reason, it is important to begin the smoking process with
the oven at room temperature.
Make certain oven vents are closed. Close oven door
and set smoke time from 10 to 20 minutes depending on
taste preference. When the smoke timer cycles to the

FOOD HOLDING - FUNCTION & VALUE
GENERAL HOLDING GUIDELINES
In the previous sections, cooking procedures in
the Halo Heat Low Temperature Cooking and
Holding Oven have been emphasized. If practical
to the individual food service operation, these
ovens can also be used without the cooking
function to hold foods at proper serving
temperatures. Individual holding cabinets can also
be used to accomplish this function.
Chefs, cooks and other specialized food service
personnel employ varied methods of cooking.
Proper holding temperatures for a specific food
product must be based on the moisture content of
the product, product density, volume, and proper
serving temperatures. Safe holding temperatures
must also be correlated with palatability in
determining the length of holding time for a
specific product.
Food production in most food service facilities
is accomplished in a variety of different cooking
equipment. Food quality can be easily lost
between the time a product is removed from an
oven and the time of direct service. Regardless of
the method of preparation, proper handling of food
within this time period is of critical importance to
the food service operator. Halo Heat hot food
holding equipment is able to support any type of
food preparation by extending the longest possible
holding life for the widest variety of products.
For maximum efficiency, hot food holding
equipment should be selected on the basis of the
full range of functions this equipment can provide
to the individual operation. For example, dough
proofing, bulk food holding for buffet service or
other situations and the transportation of hot foods
are some of the major functions of these cabinets
for multipurpose utility. When properly planned,
Halo Heat holding equipment can be a time
management aid, support the food service
operation by extending preparation times outside of
peak preparation hours, and provide a quality
product in prolonged holding situations.
Consult an Alto-Shaam representative for
information on compatible holding equipment or
for recommendation on full systems tailored to
meet specific requirements.

Halo Heat maintains the maximum amount of
product moisture content without the addition of
water, water vapor, or steam. Maintaining
maximum natural product moisture preserves the
natural flavor of the product and provides a more
genuine taste. In addition to product moisture
retention, the gentle properties of Halo Heat
maintain a consistent temperature throughout the
cabinet without the necessity of a heat distribution
fan, thereby preventing further moisture loss due
to evaporation or dehydration.
In an enclosed holding environment, too much
moisture content is a condition which can be
relieved. A product achieving extremely high
temperatures in preparation must be allowed to
decrease in temperature before being placed in a
controlled holding atmosphere. If the product is
not allowed to decrease in temperature, excessive
condensation will form increasing the moisture
content on the outside of the product. To preserve
the safety and quality of freshly cooked foods
however, a maximum of 1 to 2 minutes must be the
only time period allowed for the initial heat to be
released from the product.
Most Halo Heat holding equipment is provided
with a thermostat control between 60° and 200°F
(16° to 93°C). If the unit is equipped with vents,
close the vents for moist holding and open the
vents for crisp holding.
If the unit is equipped with a thermostat
indicating a range of between 1 and 10, use a
thermometer to measure the internal temperature of
the product(s) being held. Adjust the thermostat
setting to achieve the best overall setting based on
internal product temperature.

SANITATION and HANDLING
Food flavor and aroma are usually so closely related it
is difficult, if not impossible, to separate them. There is
also an important, inseparable relationship between
cleanliness and food flavor. Cleanliness, top operating
efficiency, and appearance of equipment contribute
considerably to savory, appetizing foods. Good equipment
that is kept clean, works better and lasts longer.
Most food imparts its own particular aroma and
many foods also absorb existing odors. Unfortunately,
during this absorption, there is no distinction between
GOOD and BAD odors. The majority of objectionable
flavors and odors troubling food service operations are
caused by bacteria growth. Sourness, rancidity,
mustiness, stale or other OFF flavors are usually the
result of bacterial activity.
The easiest way to insure full, natural food flavor is
through comprehensive cleanliness. This means good
control of both visible soil (dirt) and invisible soil
(microorganisms). Clean surfaces don’t smell. This is a
basic and important fact to assure good quality in food
of all kinds.
A thorough approach to sanitation will provide
essential cleanliness. It will assure an attractive
appearance of equipment, along with maximum efficiency
and utility. More importantly, a good sanitation program
provides one of the key elements in the prevention of
food-borne illnesses.
A controlled holding environment for prepared foods is
just one of the important factors involved in the prevention
of food-borne illnesses. Temperature monitoring and
control during receiving, storage, preparation and the
service of foods are of equal importance.
The most accurate method of measuring safe
temperatures of both hot and cold foods is by internal
product temperature. A quality thermometer is an effective
tool for this purpose and should be routinely used on all
products that require holding at a specific temperature.

A comprehensive sanitation program should focus on
the training of staff in basic sanitation procedures. This
includes personal hygiene, proper handling of raw foods,
cooking to a safe internal product temperature, and the
routine monitoring of internal temperatures from
receiving through service. Personal cleanliness is
generally the most difficult field to control. Rigid rules
of personal hygiene and practice must be instituted and
maintained with standards set at the highest levels.
Most food-borne illnesses can be prevented through
proper temperature control and a comprehensive program
of sanitation. All these factors are important to build
quality service as the foundation of customer satisfaction.

FOOD SAFETY GUIDELINES
Safe food handling practices to prevent food-borne
illness is of critical importance to the health and
safety of your customers. HACCP, an acronym for
Hazard Analysis (at) Critical Control Points, is a
quality control program of operating procedures to
assure food integrity, quality, and safety. Taking
steps necessary to augment food safety practices
are both cost effective and relatively simple. While
HACCP guidelines go far beyond the scope of this
booklet, additional information is available by
contacting the USDA/FDA Food-borne Illness
Education Information Center.

All stored food items must be covered and placed
in a cooler or freezer at a minimum height of
6-inches (152mm) above the floor.
Employees serving food, preparing food, or washing
utensils must wear an effective hair covering.
Employees must wash their hands before serving
or preparing food.
Soap and towels must be provided at the hand-sink
which must only be used for washing hands.
No smoking or use of tobacco products is allowed
in the food preparation or service area.
All serving containers must be stored with food
contact surfaces covered or in the down position.
All utensils must be washed in a threecompartment sink and dipped in a final
sanitation rinse. A pH test kit must be used to
check the rinse water.
Food preparation surfaces must not be used for
the storage of non-food items.
All cold food must be stored at or below 40°F (4°C).
Frozen foods must not be thawed at room
temperature nor in water. Use the cooler for
thawing and thaw foods slowly.
SUMMARY
In the United States, the Food and Drug
Administration has a published Food Code as a reference
guide for the prevention of food-borne illness in retail
outlets such as restaurants, institutions and grocery
stores. Provisions of this Food Code are compatible with
the concept and terminology of Hazard Analysis (at)
Critical Control Points (HACCP) and contains expanded
provisions for food safety. The FDA publication, along
with local codes, should be the final word with regard to
all issues regarding food safety and sanitation in the U.S.
