A Problem-Solving Innovationfor the Ultimate Kitchen Hub
Developed to address the functional demands and aesthetic priorities of professional kitchens, the Worktop brings Chilewich’s innovative textiles to the pass, protecting these essential prep surfaces with elegant, durable, and fully customized woven coverings that feature a waterproof, non-slip backing of blown vinyl foam.
The Worktop is a turn-key solution for the daily task of preparing the pass. This process typically involves using masking tape to affix a linen covering (usually a surplus tablecloth) to each pass, creating a clean, stable surface for plating and pick-up. A Michelin-starred restaurant estimates that it spends $33,600* per year on this tape-and-tablecloth method.
By replacing the costly tape-and-tablecloth method with the Worktop, kitchens of all sizes can realize a myriad of benefits:
Save time and money
Avoid labor-intensive preparation, regular laundering, and frequent replacement of makeshift linen coverings.
Streamline setup and maintenance
Prepare and break down passes in moments. Worktops can wipe clean, and can also be scrubbed or soaked.
Choose from a broad range of original Chilewich weaves and distinctive colors.
Conserve energy expenditure and water usage associated with linen coverings.
Add a layer of protection
Enhance stability and prevent damage with a woven textile surface backed by a non-slip backing of blown vinyl foam.
Each Work Top is made to order.
Choose a size, weave, and color that fits your needs.
