    Health Audit

    You will all probably get a kick out of this, but I got in trouble on Friday for having a stone soaking in water on my prep table (no prep being done, that is just where I sharpen). The inspector claimed it was kitchen equipement stored in standing water...a friggin critical violation.

    So, as opposed to keeping the water running for 30 min while I soak my Rika, and in trying to be good and keeping in compliance, what is a good splash and go stone in the 4k range?

    +1. I'd also consider a 3k SS but only if you don't mind soft and I tried using Choseras as splash n go stones and they work pretty well, actually. Another one is a Belgian blue coticule. I think it's the hardest of the bunch. For a nice, durable edge, I might go that way.

    Can't you store your soaking stones in the walk-in?

    Either that or an immersion circulator holding the stone above 140 degrees and a properly displayed and approved HAACP plan for safe storage of water stones.

    As a "civilian" I'm just too stunned for words...

    @pesky &Johnny, very fine ideas! I can't beleive I did not think about them prior to the audit.

    It should be noted it was not a state health official...our company hires a third party auditor to do a complete food safety audit...it is VERY detailed, which I have no qualms about.

    Could you put a smidge of bleach in the water and tell them it's a sanitizing bath?

    We were once defrosting chicken in water in the walk-in, and I told teh boss to take it out of the bag, put salt in the water and tell them we're brining it.


    That takes the cake though. What a jackwagon.

    You could always use this as an excuse to your SO as to why you need a jnat or BBW.
