Oh hey, I've got more questions I'm confused over...
In Maccas, there's a computer screen saying the amount of food need to be cooked such as "Nuggets 1/2". The 1 meaning number of trays and 2 meaning the amount of food products.
I've asked my trainer a billion times how to look at the screen and just *know* when I need to put the food into the grill and boil it in oil. I still don't understand....Anybody explain to me? ~^^~
Yes, the first number is the no. of trays. The second, I assume, is the amount the have in each tray OR the total amount shared between all trays. Nonetheless, it's extremely confusing.
You should very occasionally check the trays to see if you have empty products. But your fellow crew members should also be helping you by calling out empty trays i.e "EMPTY FISH!" and you get the cue to put down more.
What I usually do is -
1. For Nuggets, put down a WHOLE bag of nuggets. Then throw it all into ONE tray when it has finished cooking
throw it into 2 SEPARATE TRAYS
2. For Chicken patties and Fillet patties, put down 5-6 each
3. For Crunchy/Crispy patties, put down 4
It depends mostly on how much products you have, which is why it's important to check constantly. Also, some sneaky crew member might see one patty left in a tray, THEN they move it into the new tray, and they don't call out the empty tray. Not telling you to become paranoid, but just be aware of what's happening.
Finally, if you have a night shift and business is slow, MINIMISE your cooking as much as possible. You can get in trouble if you have too much stock at the end.
