“With the new Kitchen Manager system, Comark is bringing smart IoT technology to the customer workflows in kitchens,” says Lika Dutta, general manager of Comark Instruments. “This innovation will allow our customers to perform real-time temperature monitoring and store data for future use. Comark is committed to making HACCP compliance simpler and food safety processes more efficient for our customers. We are excited about connected devices and solutions within smart kitchens and will continue to innovate in this space.”
The Kitchen Manager encompasses the new Comark Kitchen Monitor and Comark Kitchen Checks platform to record, monitor and access temperature data wirelessly – keeping all information in one consolidated area.
“Our new system is a scalable platform that comprises fully automated refrigerator, freezer and cold store monitoring with the ability to take food temperatures via a Bluetooth thermometer. Kitchen Manager will replace existing paper-based HACCP systems – fully automating food safety processes,” says Michael Hall, product marketing director for Comark Instruments. “Kitchen Manager offers 24/7 security and peace of mind that critical temperatures are being monitored and that the user will be alerted whenever a problem arises – making it more convenient than ever to ensure food safety.”
Kitchen Manager is a web-based, HACCP compliant system made to monitor the temperature of all food storage areas – decreasing error and time. Temperature data is recorded and stored around-the-clock with access to records through any web connected device, creating a convenient IoT system for temperature monitoring solutions. The Kitchen Manager system can connect with many Comark products, including the new Bluetooth Pocketherm Thermometer.
Key features include:
· Fully automated refrigerator and freezer monitoring;
· Sends notifications via SMS text or email if a unit falls out of pre-defined temperature range;
· Automated cloud-cased auditing;

“Comark has driven down costs and spurred innovation in temperature measuring through our attention and greater awareness to food safety and HACCP standards,” says Hall. “Our thermometers and temperature monitors are geared to the need for speed and accuracy of measurements, but always available at affordable prices.”
