Place to prepare food and drinks.
- Sink and counter with appropriate cleaning supplies. Cold water only. Kitchen cleaning supplies are stored under the sink.
- Stove - electric, not connected yet.
- Toaster oven
- Coffee maker
- Espresso machine
- Hot plate
- Kettle (for boiling water)
- Trash can
- Bulletin board (share information, post notices on it.)
There are cold beverages in the refrigerator. (see current price list) These are for sale to makers, members and guests. Profits go towards the purchase of additional equipment for the space.
If keeping plates and cups in the kitchen for personal use, please ensure that your name is on them, and that they are neatly stored on the shelves above the counters.
Break room guidelines
- For food use only. (there are other sinks elsewhere in the space for cleaning brushes, washing off solvents for cleanup after completing tasks)
- Please wash and ensure that any dishes that you use are on the drain board before you leave. Do not leave dirty dishes in the sink.
With the exception of the microwave, unplug small appliances after use (safety and fire prevention!)
Put your name and the current date on food that you leave in the refrigerator. This will enable the Lab Host (and others) to determine when to throw it out if you forget about it. (We really don't want you to forget about it)
Cupboards and drawers are labeled as to contents, but things may move from time to time.
Trash bags for the garbage can are in the cupboard to the right of the sink.
If dish soap and other cleaning supplies are low, check Maintenance Room for additional supplies. If none there, let the Food Lab Host know that more is needed. Leave a note or email (email is likely to get fastest action).

General safety rules
As a reminder to all makers, utilization of personal appliances is permitted by Red Mountain Makers. However, these safety rules need to be followed.
- Don't leave it running unattended. This is especially important for anything designed to heat air or any other medium unless specifically labeled on the appliance by the manufacturer that it can be left alone.
- Don't use drop cords across hallways or through doorways. Without securing the cords to the floor and blocking the doors to ensure the cord is not crushed.
- Be careful not to overload electrical outlets. That is a quick way to cause a fire.
- Do not use the appliance or tool in damp locations unless rated to do so.
- Do not interfere with functions of Red Mountain Makers with your personal appliance. Be courteous of others. Here are examples but not limited to:
- Playing loud music when a class is being held
- Using a bright light in a dark room.
- Do not use the appliance if it poses a danger to yourself and others without first gaining consent from the makers to use it, and then making sure all appropriate safety precautions are followed to ensure safe operation.
- If someone asks you to postpone the use of an appliance until they leave, do so unless it is absolutely necessary to use the equipment. If it is necessary explain to the maker that it is necessary and why it is.
- If for any reason these rules must be violated permission must be obtained from the Chief Safety Officer before doing so.
