The Kitchen is where cooks prepare food with ingredients for prisonersIngredients arrive in a delivery truck and then are transferred from the deliveries to the fridges by the cooks. Four hours before it is time to eat, cooks will start cooking using cookers. Prepared food is then placed on Serving Tables in a Canteen. In the Kitchen, cooks also wash dirty food trays in the sink.

Prisoners can also steal Knives from the kitchen.

Prisoners can only work here if they have followed the Kitchen Safety and Hygiene course wich is thaught by a cook. This cook will not prepare any food while teaching.

RequirementsEdit

Kitchen efficiency proportionsEdit

  • 1 Cooker can be operated at maximum by 1 Cook.
  • 1 Sink can be operated at maximum by 1 Cook.
  • 1 Serving Table is enough to hold at minimum food from 2 cookers.
  • 1 Fridge can hold enough ingredients for at least 2 cooks.

In practice: 1 Sink per 2 Cooks is enough, since 1 Cook will carry food trays to the Sink, while other Cook will wash them. In most cases; 1 Serving table can be enough for food prepared on 2 to 4 Cookers, assuming what Cooks will not place same type of food into more than one slot, which can happen.


Rough proportions for efficient kitchen and canteen per 1 Serving Table: 2 Fridges, 2 Sinks, 4 Cookers, 4 Cooks.

RecommendedEdit

  • Direct-water-connected Sink

Tips and TricksEdit

  • A Kitchen can be placed outside of the area where prisoners are allowed. This will greatly reduce the chance of prisoners stealing something.
  • Cooks will start cooking four hours prior to eating time. With this in mind, prisoners can help cook with prison labour if work is scheduled on the four hours need to prepare food. If you do this, it is recommended to have metal detectors directly out of the kitchen's exit, since prisoners can easily steal forks, spoons, and even knives from the kitchen.
  • Prison laboured kitchen requires 12 square area per worker, with a max of 20 prisoners employed. So it is wise to make it 240 squares size.
  • You can place cookers, fridges and sinks directly adjacent and in front of each other, cooks do not need a square in front of them to work with.
