6 Types Of Commercial Dishwashers To Choose From

Your business may well depend on your commercial dishwasher. Clean, sanitized glasses and dishes are essential to impress customers and help keep them free from food-borne illnesses. What’s more, for health inspectors, a huge success or failure point is that of adequately cleaning your soiled dishware. Restaurants’ reputations are made or broken by health reports and customer reviews.

If your restaurant is to abide by local, state, and federal laws – and continue to grow successfully – it is important that the right commercial dishwasher be chosen.

Here are some types of dishwashers and some information about each one.

Ventless Dishwashers

You won’t need a commercial kitchen hood to use this commercial dishwasher because this dishwasher condenses steam. That means you can place this dishwasher in locations that may have been avoided otherwise. An energy recovery system is used by some ventless dishwashers. That means further savings on water and energy.

Keep in mind, however, that compared to standard rack dishwashers, a lower output production is typical of ventless dishwashers.

Pot Washer

It is quick and easy to clean and sanitize trays, mixing bowls, pans, and pots with a pot washer. To accommodate all sizes and shapes of cookware (many of which regular dishwashers cannot handle), taller doors are part of their special design. Compared to handwashing your pots and pans, this uses less water. It can also save labor costs and time. Great for high-volume hospitals, cafeterias, hotels, and restaurants.

Glass Washer

Your establishment’s glassware can be efficiently and quickly cleaned courtesy of a glass washer, without damaging or chipping them. Up to 2000 glasses can be cleaned in an hour. One cycle of washing takes roughly 90 seconds. Under-countertop models are available, so they don’t have to be located in the back of the house. These are perfect for hotels, bars, coffee shops, and restaurants.

Undercounter Dishwasher

For bars or compact kitchens, this space saver is a much-needed piece of equipment. It can clean up to 55 dishes and flatware per hour. Many models resemble residential dishwashers, having a single door on the front. There are displays and controls available for efficient usage.

Rack or Door Type Dishwasher

These are basically conveyor washers (see below) but on a smaller scale. To operate them, you simply put your dishes in a rack, place the rack in the dishwasher, shut the door, and let the dishwasher go through its cleaning cycle. Your dishware is cleaned within moments, then you simply raise the door to retrieve your dishes.

About 350 dishes and flatware can be processed every day. For smaller restaurants, these are ideal, and installation is much easier compared to the larger conveyor dishwasher.

Conveyor Dishwasher

These powerful and large dishwashers process up to 1000 dishes and flatware daily. They are designed for heavy usage in hospitals, cafeterias, and other operations experiencing high volumes. They’re usually made of stainless steel. They come in high and low temperature models, as well as Energy Star selections.
