What is a kitchen receipt printer?
A kitchen(restaurant) receipt printer is used to print customer orders in a restaurant, bar, or kitchen. And chef and other staff can prepare the food based on the receipt.
The kitchen printers are generally direct thermal printers. The heated TPH(thermal printer head) contacts with the thermal receipt paper and a chemical reaction occur on the surface of the thermal paper, and then text or images are generated. A direct thermal printer requires no ink, toner, or ribbon. And it is cost-saving, durable, and easy to use.
Why Use a kitchen receipt printer?
The printed order tickets are inevitably exposed to the heat and humid kitchen and can easily cause contaminated by oil and water. The kitchen printer is a special printer developed for the special environment of the kitchen. The printed text is not easy to be blurred, so it can better ensure the integrity and correctness of the order. And a kitchen receipt printer usually has good waterproof and oil fume resistance.
