Chapter 10

Commercial Dishwashers Large commercial dishwashers are used mainly in commercial establishments such as hotels and restaurants where a large number of dishes must be cleaned on a regular basis. Commercial dishwashers are capable of washing a rack of dishes in a matter of minutes. In the United Kingdom, the British Standards Institute sets standards for dishwashers. In the United States, the NSF International determines the standards for wash and rinse time as well as minimum water temperature for chemical or hot water sanitizing methods. Commercial dishwaters are available in various types that include undercounter, single tank, conveyor, flight type, glass washers, hood style, door style and carousel machines. These devices reduce your clean-up tine and boost your kitchen's efficiency. Quite expectedly, commercial dishwashers are much costlier than the residential ones. Two types of sanitization methods are commonly used in commercial dishwashers. They are hot water sanitizing (that uses final rinse water at not less than 83 °C), and chemical sanitizing (that injects chlorine in the final rinse water). It is not possible for all dishwashers to reach the high temperature required for hot water sanitizing. Medical grade dishwashers and sanitizers have now begun using to remove particles and sterilize instruments.

A high temperature commercial dishwasher can clean a big load of dishes in minutes with just the pull of a lever. As soon as the lever is pulled, the hood is closed and the washer automatically starts. Strong blasts of hot water are sprayed on the dishes and they are ready to be dried and used again in within minutes. If there is shortage of space in a kitchen, there are a number of undercounter commercial dishwashers to choose from. These devices are capable of cleaning up to 30 racks of dishes per hour by using quick heating systems to bring the water to the proper temperature fast. Being made of stainless steel, these commercial dishwashers are more durable and easy to clean.
