What is a Kosher Kitchen?

A Kosher kitchen is a unique way of eating that abides by strict dietary laws for the practice of Orthodox Judaism. This type of kitchen requires extensive knowledge in order to keep all food items strictly kosher, meaning free from any prohibited products. Every ingredient must be certified as kosher and must have been prepared, handled, and stored according to rabbinic standards.


All cooking must be done on designated surfaces or items so that no crumbs or particles are comingling with what may not be kosher. Additionally, dairy and meat products must always remain separate, with all dishes associated with either one being set up differently. A kosher kitchen can take some getting used to but delivers a delicious, authentic spiritual experience for those who follow it closely.

A Kosher kitchen design is a unique way to design a kitchen based on certain interpretations of Jewish dietary law. It requires careful organization and separation of different items, such as salt from meat, water from wine, and dairy from chicken. By diligently designing every corner of the kitchen with two sets of cookware, utensils, ovens, microwaves, and even dishwashing machines to make sure that dietary laws are not violated.


Kosher kitchens provide an opportunity for cooks and chefs to be extra vigilant in their food preparation by sticking to a specific set of guidelines inspired by ancient teachings. After all is said and done, you’re left with a kitchen meant for purposeful cooking that respects the dietary laws placed upon it.

Our team has decades of experience in creating designs that comply with the dietary laws and customs of Judaism while harmoniously blending aesthetics and functionality.



Have Plenty of Storage Space

Having ample storage space is key when creating an organized kosher kitchen. Build cabinets with shelving specifically designated to hold cooking tools used with either milk products or meat products, such as large tubs or baskets based on their usage (for example, storing non-dairy utensils together). This will help ensure that you don’t mix them up during meal preparation times!

Choose Multipurpose Appliances

The most efficient kitchens have appliances that can double up on tasks, such as using the same appliance for both boiling and steaming. Consider purchasing small appliances that can cut down on clutter and serve multiple purposes.

Install Two Sinks

Kosher kitchens require two sinks: one for meat dishes and one for dairy dishes. To make sure your kitchen stays clean, use separate sponges for each sink – never wash anything off in both sinks! Keep these two sinks well-separated from each other to ensure full separation between meat and dairy items.

Declutter Countertops

Clutter-free countertops make all the difference when it comes to working in a kosher kitchen. It is essential to dedicate counter space exclusively for preparing milk dishes or meat dishes, so create an open layout or drawers where you can store utensils, spices, pots and pans away from the counters.

Choose Easy-to-Clean Surfaces

Caring for surfaces in a kosher kitchen should be easy and straightforward. Stainless steel is generally easier to clean than wood or stone surfaces because it does not absorb odors or particles of residue food. If choosing tile floors, pick tiles with smooth finishes that can prevent dirt buildup over time.

Ideas for a Kosher Kitchen Layout

Creating the perfect layout for a kosher kitchen is no easy feat. It must be both practical and stylish, with enough space to contain two sinks and storage for both milk and meat products. Here are some ideas for getting the most out of your space:

Utilize Vertical Space

A great way to get extra storage into your kitchen is by utilizing all the vertical space available in a room. Hang shelves on walls or add Art Deco-inspired shelving units that can serve as a stylish display for spices, cooking utensils, pots and pans without taking up much countertop area.

Create Zones

Kosher kitchens require separate areas for preparing dairy, meat and pareve dishes in order to ensure that cross-contamination between ingredients doesn’t occur. An easy way to designate these zones is by grouping appliances like ovens, microwaves and dishwashers together near either the dairy sink or meat sink. This will help keep the layout organized while also making meal times more efficient.

Open Cabinets & Drawers

Open cabinets create an illusion of spaciousness in a tight kitchen, while drawers are essential in keeping surfaces organized and free of clutter! Installing open shelves between wall cabinets can give you more storage options without taking up too much room. Consider adding drawer dividers to contain items such as cutting boards or spices neatly within each drawer – this will make finding what you need easier than ever before!

Install Task Lighting

Good lighting is crucial when it comes to designing any type of kitchen – but especially kosher kitchens! Make sure your workspace has sufficient task lighting so that you can clearly see what you’re doing when working with food ingredients or cooking vessels. Under-cabinet lighting or a combination of overhead lights, pendant lights and sconces may be necessary depending on the size of your kitchen space.

Best Cabinets for Kosher Kitchens

When it comes to selecting the perfect cabinets for your kosher kitchen, there are a few key considerations. Look for cabinets that are made from durable materials so they can stand up to the daily wear and tear of meal preparation and cleaning. Additionally, look for cabinets with sliding shelves and drawers that can be easily accessed without having to reach into awkward corners or tight spaces. Finally, choose a finish that is easy to clean and maintain over time so your cabinets remain looking their best!
