Cook List

The Cook List is an on-screen element that displays projected items and the quantity to cook. Items are organized by cooking method.

Items in the cook list display the following information:

  • Item Name

  • Quantity to Cook

  • Cook List Timer

Cook List quantities are based on the maximum quantity contained in a single-batch cook cycle. The Cook List displays as many requests as necessary to fulfill the projected quantity for the item.

For example, if Chef predicts twenty (20) items, but a single-batch contains only twelve (12) items, another request for the item appears on the Cook List. This means a total of two (2) requests for the same item appears on the Cook List, one for a full, single-batch of twelve (12) items, and another for a partial-batch of eight (8) items.

Cook List Item Statuses

Cook List items have two (2) possible statuses:

Chef Cook List Events: Manual Load

By default, Cook List events, such as Manual Load and Cook List+, are not considered when calculating the earned Chef Grade. Zero (0) out of zero (0) points are earned for these events.

However, the Parent Brand may request that all Cook List events, including manual events, are included in the Chef Score. In these cases, when the kitchen team manually loads a pan or uses Cook List+, zero (0) out of two (2) points are earned for the event.

Including all Cook List events increases the total number of possible points, which may negatively affect the earned Chef Score.
