A room for preparing food to be eaten at the [[Canteen
|canteen]]. Kitchens are staffed by [[Cook |cooks]].The greater your inmate population, the more [[ fridge|fridges]], [[ cooker|cookers]] and [[ cooks|cooks]] you will require to keep up with demand.
== Tips ==
kitchen should be near the canteen and deliveries zone to avoid long walks.
* Keep your kitchen secure, as inmates will try to fetch [[Contraband#Weapons|Knives]] from it.
As of [[Alpha 9]], Players can assign inmates to do "Jobs" in kitchens (1/12m², max. 20), as well as other areas of the prison.* It is prudent to designate the kitchen a staff only area, if you have unlocked "[[Deployment]] " via Bureaucracy. This will prevent theft of tools/contraband, the potential escape of prisoners assigned to work there and also will prevent an optional route around any [[Metal Detector]]s you have installed at the canteen. However, keep in mind that prisoners cannot work at a kitchen marked as staff only.* As of [[Alpha 14]], deliveries can be moved inside the prison and secured. So having prisoner jobs in the kitchen is no big risk anymore.*Recommended ratio for cooks, cookers, and fridges is 1 to 1 to 1. Each cooker cooks a maximum of 20 ingredients. Each Fridge holds a maximum of 20 ingredients.*Placing a bin in the kitchen will reduce time spent walking to garbage area to dispose of food. Workman will carry garbage bags from the bins to the garbage area.* As of [[Alpha 18]] prisoners must complete Kitchen Safety and Hygiene before they may work in the Kitchen.
