Where would the commercial kitchen be without disposable gloves? These inexpensive, yet extremely useful digit protectors are used almost everywhere in the kitchen, from the prep table to the cleaning closet, and having a box or two always on hand is wise. Cross-contamination happens more easily than you’d think. Slipping on a pair of disposable gloves before handling meat, chopping some vegetables, or cleaning up for the day can save you, your staff, and your customers from sickness or allergy-related reactions. Fortunately, most gloves come one-size-fits-all, and doing your part is as easy as remembering to wear a pair when working with food or cleaning supplies.
