About the Kitchen App Settings

Kitchen profiles are used to easily apply a predetermined group of settings to a Lightspeed Kitchen device. This allows you to set a different Kitchen profile for devices affiliated with different stations in your kitchen. For example, you could configure one profile for the grill station and another profile for the dessert station; each set to receive their distinct order items. 

Kitchen profiles are configured in Restaurant Manager on the Kitchen App Settings page.
