The new ventilation system is amazing

Working with a deep fat fryer in the kitchen comes with a lot of downsides.

  • I would never have one of these things in the house, because they cause such a mess and generate an ungodly stink.

At work I have no choice. This diner is famous for its french fries. We make eight different types of french fries, including a sweet potato fry which is quite delicious. I must admit that after working here for a couple of years, I have stopped eating fried foods entirely, now they turn my stomach. As bad as the heat can be while standing over the fryer, the worst part is the indoor air quality. The entire kitchen reeks of grease and scorched oil, which is why the bosses put in a fancy new ventilation system to clear the air. I have to say that the new ventilation system has made all the difference in the world. The air quality in the kitchen smells as fresh as a summer breeze, even when I am standing right over the deep fat fryer. There has never been air conditioning in the kitchen, but surprisingly the new ventilation system helps with that, too. By lowering the humidity, eliminating the grease and smoke it makes the air quality so much more tolerable that I don’t mind the heat. To make sure this never changes, I have been given a new duty – every weekend I have to deep clean all the air ducts and exhaust vents for the kitchen. Wiping down the inside of greasy is not fun, but it’s worth it.
