A modern residential kitchen is typically equipped with a stove , a sink with hot and cold running water , a refrigerator , and it also has counters and kitchen cabinets arranged according to a modular design . Many households have a microwave oven , a dishwasher and other electric appliances. The main function of a kitchen is serving as a location for storing, cooking and preparing food (and doing related tasks such as dishwashing), but it may also be used for dining, entertaining and laundry . Commercial kitchens are found in restaurants, cafeterias, hotels, hospitals, educational and workplace facilities, army barracks, and similar establishments. These kitchens are generally larger and equipped with bigger and more heavy-duty equipment than a residential kitchen. For example, a large restaurant may have a huge walk -in refrigerator and a large commercial dishwasher machine . In developed countries , commercial kitchens are generally subject to public health laws. They are inspected periodically by public - health officials, and forced to close if they do not meet hygienic requirements mandated by law .
