A kitchen is a room or part of a room used for cooking and food preparation in a dwelling or in a commercial establishment.
The main functions of a kitchen are to store, prepare and cook food (and to complete related tasks such as dishwashing).
What is considered a full kitchen?
A kitchen is a separate room fully equipped with all the standard cooking appliances: stove, oven, refrigerator, and possibly a dishwasher. A kitchenette is a smaller version of a kitchen. It may feature smaller appliances, limited appliances, or just the basics, like a refrigerator and a microwave.
What is considered a commercial kitchen?
Commercial kitchens and commissaries are commercial-grade facilities that are licensed for food service providers to prepare and store food. Some commercial kitchens are private, which gives you control over the kitchen, your equipment, and the storage.
What’s the difference between kitchen and kitchenette?
The main difference between a kitchen and a kitchenette is simply the size. In a kitchenette, storage space is often fairly limited. Kitchenette appliances are usually limited to only a few essential devices such as a microwave, a toaster oven, a hot plate, and a small dorm-size fridge.
