High Temperature Dishwashers
Call us crazy, but the first thing that some folks here at Ice Machines Plus think about when they think of bars is the equipment behind the bar. We might not care that the bartender can make a flaming Bob Marley, or put out the rainbow drinks, but we do want to make sure that the bartender is able to serve all of his or her patrons in the best time with the best tools for the job. And one of the most important tools is the undercounter dishwasher.
For those medium sized busy bars, one of the most potent tools that you can have on your side is the Moyer Diebel undercounter dishwasher. Having an unde
Running a restaurant takes a lot of moving parts. It’s like a symphony of personnel, all of them doing their job (or jobs) to make beautiful kitchen music. There are a few folks who are players within that symphony who don’t necessarily get the praise that the concert master does. We’re talking about the dishwashers, the (sometimes) second tubas of the restaurant world.
While these guys aren’t necessarily going to be the ones whose names are on the placard out front, they’re still very necessary to the functioning of the restaurant. Think about what would happen if you didn’t have clean dishes on which to serve those customers? It would shut down pretty quickly. To do their jobs properly, though, they need a fantastic dishwasher on their side.
We recently had a real treat: an opportunity to stay at one of the hotels in the area. Being a supplier to the restaurant business, we can’t help but notice how people run their bars, restaurants, and other food service areas.
Since it was a trip for pleasure, we didn’t ask for a tour behind the scenes. What we did notice, however, was that on the Friday night that we went to the hotel bar, he was the busiest man in the house. He was taking care of folks for the playoff games, fielding questions from patrons, and simultaneously mixing drinks. Another thing we noticed was that there was a huge pile of glasses piling up in his 3-area undercounter sink.
You might be taking great care of your commercial dishwasher, but there will come a time when all of the maintenance that you’re doing can’t keep up with the rate of deterioration. It will become necessary to replace your commercial dishwasher sometime, but it will give you some warning signs before it gives up the ghost.
There are three primary reasons to replace equipment:
- It’s breaking down too often
- It’s too old
- It no longer fits your needs
When you buy a new dishwasher, you’re looking at a good ten years or so of service. The warrantees last for a few years, but after a while the machine becomes a service
Dishwashers are the unsung heroes of the kitchen. Try serving your customers food on dirty plates, and you’ll see how long it takes to scare off your clientele. Finding the right dishwasher can be difficult, as there are many considerations to be had.
How busy are you?
Everyone wants to have a busy restaurant, as the more business you bring in, the more money is brought in. If you’re ultra busy, the dishwasher might not be able to keep up, if you’re slow, the washer is just sitting there. When you think about the commercial dishwasher you want, think about the average number of tables you have each night.
The type of dishwasher you choose will also depend on the space requirements that you have. A conveyor dishwasher, though it is a great tool to have in your kitchen, might not be the best bet for someone wh
If you’re stuck in the Stone Age of dishwashing – i.e. still scrubbing with a sponge and washing dishes by hand – it may be time to consider your alternatives. Commercial dishwashers provide great benefits to any kitchen that serves food in large quantities on a daily basis. Not only does a high temperature dishwasher clean your plates and glasses, but it does so in a fraction of the time that a person could be expected to perform the same task. High temperature dishwashers also do not require dishwashing chemicals to be added to the water, so there is no chance for soap or chemical residue to be left on newly cleaned dishes and glasses.
