About the Ingredient Summary Pane

The Ingredient Summary Pane displays aggregated quantities of order item ingredients. The kitchen staff can refer to the Ingredient Summary Pane to quickly determine the order item ingredients to prepare in order to fulfill the orders routed to their station.

The ingredient quantities are automatically updated as orders are bumped and new orders are added.
