Protection for rj45 ports in a restaurant kitchen.

I'm the IT manager at a restaurant and I would like to protect my network connections in the kitchen from things like grease and water that makes it's way into the connections.  
Has anyone advice on this and have they used this product?
The reviews suggest it will help but I don't want to cause more harm than good.

    I have never used a product like that and for that reason can't recommend it to you. I am assuming you are wanting to protect rj45 ports when they are not in use, therefore I recommend you use some modular jack protectors. I always use these on any unused ports either throughout my offices or back at the data hub. You basically just insert them into the unused port and it keeps out dust, grease - pretty much anything.

    Thanks for your help.  These are active connections and I need something that would protect them over the long haul.   I neglected to check up on this post so I'll accept your answer.
