The Glory of Electric Appliances in Hotel Restaurants & Our Homes

Imagine how hard it would be to run an establishment like a hotel restaurant without having modern electric appliances. Sure, we could use old-fashioned gas appliances to cook food and keep our kitchen and dining areas lit, but then what about the washing machine, the fridge, etc. Surely hotel restaurants existed before wide-spread electricity hit our cities and if history had happened differently I’m sure someone would have invented a steam powered industrial dishwasher but that’s beside the point.

If it wasn’t for all the major appliance brands we have today we wouldn’t have all the diversity of technology, the competition to keep our appliances evolving and so on. We’d all be using the ice box still and this potentially means the quality of food we enjoy in hotel restaurants today wouldn’t be the same. I’m sure food was still of good quality back when hotels were using ice boxes, hand dishwashers and gas stoves, but with modern appliances we have the time to work the extra mile and make sure our food is of the best quality possible.

Can you imagine a world without modern appliances? Forget hotel restaurants, imagine how this would impact the home. I can think of a list of 8 things that would be so strange to us if we didn’t get to benefit from the glory of electric appliances:

  1. Doing laundry by hand, taking up our whole weekend.
  2. Not able to keep perishable goods in our kitchen for more than a few days.
  3. Having to rely on smoked and salted meats instead of frozen meats.
  4. Doing all our dishes by hand, although some households still do this.
  5. Not having readily available ice for our drinks when we need it most.
  6. Not being able to set the time on the coffee maker for 6 AM!
  7. Not having good lighting to cook at night.
  8. Every house using gas ovens could be dangerous for fires.

And if you gave me another hour I could think of 100 more things. But I think you get the point. That’s why I speak of the “glory” of electric appliances. We rely on them so much today and take them for granted. In the future we may take them for granted even more, unless more people read this post. Then, if we speak of this truth, perhaps we’ll begin to be grateful and cheerful when we’re otherwise upset and depressed. Even if you live in a slum, I bet you still have access to electric appliances and you should be happy about this. You can microwave your food, enjoy a baked chicken breast on holidays, etc.

In a previous post we talked about the importance of a laundry room in your hotel. This would not be possible without electric washers and dryers. The whole hotel industry wouldn’t be the same, and we might not have clean sheets every time we rent a room. In history I know some stories that my grandparents told me of renting hotel rooms that had fleas in the bed! I could not live in a world like this, so I praise electric appliances and speak of their glory for a reason.

I hope I opened your mind to this subject and altered your perspective for the better! After all, without electricity you wouldn’t even be able to read this…

The Ease of Having a Laundry Room in Your Hotel

Even small hotels should have their own laundry room. After all, even Bates Motel did their own laundry. I only say this because I know a lot of hotels, motels and inns that pay for mobile laundry services and they could save a lot of time by installing some commercial laundry machines.

Washing all the bedding that a hotel goes through on a daily basis means lots of work. Hiring a staff member that cleans rooms could also do laundry. Even hiring someone who just does laundry is cheaper than hiring pick up and drop off laundry services.

I recommend that if you choose to install a laundry room that you make a good relationship with a local appliance repair company. This is something you should do even if you don’t have your own autonomous laundry system because all the mini fridges and other appliances in your hotel might break down and you want to get it repaired as soon as possible for the sake of your guests. Nothing ruins a hotel’s reputation and gives you bad reviews faster than having a broken ice machine!

So take this advice and use it well. I wish you the best of luck with your hotel business success! Don’t forget to stay tuned and bookmark http://hotel-restaurant-tilleuls.com/ because we have a lot more content on the way!
