Dish-Washing Machines

If you have a restaurant, cafe, or bakery, and you want it to grow, then your commercial kitchen should be properly equipped. One of the most important things in your kitchen is a dishwasher – a machine used for cleaning and rinsing dirty dishes. If you are currently looking for a commercial dishwasher for your business, here are some things you need to take into account, courtesy of MathiasFoodService Equipment Company.

Types of Commercial Dishwashers Available On the Market

Here are a few most common types of commercial dishwashers you can find on the market today:

Conveyor Dishwashers

They are large and powerful dishwashers that can process up to 1000 dishes and flatware racks every day. They are made of stainless steel and are usually used in hospitals, busy restaurants, and other places with high-volume operations. Many of these dishwashers are known for their energy efficiency and ability to cut down on electricity consumption.

Door Type and Rack Dishwashers

They are smaller than conveyor commercial dishwashers, and they are designed to connect dirty dish tables or clean dish tables. They work the following way: you put dirty dishes on a compatible rack of the machine, push them inside the dishwasher, close the door, and run the cycle. Most door type or rack dishwashers can process up to 350 dishes every day. Since these commercial dishwashers are not very big, they are usually set out in the corner of the kitchen or against a wall.

Under-counter Commercial Dishwashers

If your commercial kitchen is compact and your space is limited, this type of commercial dishwasher is an excellent choice for you. They usually clean between 20 and 30 dishes a time not at a rapid pace. Most under-counter dishwashers have a single door and remain regular washing machines. Since they are quite small, they are often placed in the front of the house in order to minimize time and distance that are needed to get clean dishes back to customers.

What About Temperature Requirements For Dishwashers?

According to Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in order to be considered sanitary, food contact surfaces must reach a surface temperature of 160F. Unfortunately, not all dishwashers can reach this temperature, so you can be careful and pay attention to this requirement when choosing a commercial dishwasher for your kitchen.

What Temperature Do Commercial Dishwashers Reach?

Usually, dishwashers can reach the temperature between 120 and 180F. The temperature depends on the type of dishwasher, its size, and the cycle the washing is running.

All commercial dishwashers are divided into two types – low and high temp machines. Low temp dishwashers wash and rinse dishes at temperatures between 120 and 180F. They also require the use of special chemical sanitizing agents, and you have to scrub your dishes before putting them into the machine. The main advantage of low team commercial dishwashers is that they are usually energy efficient.

High temp commercial dishwashers wash dishes at temperatures between 150 and 160 and can reach the temperature of 180F when they rinse dishware. These dishwashers sanitize dishes very well and thoroughly, but they also require a condensate hood.

One of the main benefits of high temp commercial dishwashers is that they get dry quickly, so you can use your clean dishes almost immediately after the cleaning cycle of your machine is over. High temp machines are a perfect choice for large and busy restaurants where you have to constantly clean a large amount of visibly soiled dishes.
