Commercial dishwashers can help to wash a large amount of dirty plates, glassware, pots, and pans and keep your restaurant running smoothly. Providing your team with clean glassware, dinnerware, and flatware is essential in your business. The Kitchen Spot experts sell the best-in-class commercial dishwasher brands.
When choosing your commercial dishwasher, you should consider how much room you have to accommodate a restaurant dishwasher. Are you interested in a high-temp or an industrial dishwasher? Maybe you have room for a commercial conveyor dishwasher, but if space is an issue, possibly an undercounter dishwasher would work better. A high-temperature dishwasher uses high heat to sanitize dishes, while a low-temperature dishwasher utilizes chemical agents. While the initial cost of the low-temperature may be lower, you may end up spending more on the cleaning agents, and these can possibly cause some damage or tarnish your chinaware and flatware. Some high-temperature dishwashers have a flash drying method. This can utilize more energy but has the advantage of having your dishes and glassware ready faster to rotate back in during a busy service.
Commercial dishwashers are known as the biggest water and energy guzzlers in the kitchen, but many manufacturers are making more energy-efficient models that meet government Energy Star regulations. Energy Star dishwashers are on average 40% more energy and water efficient than standard models, and can save you an average of almost $3,000 per year. Energy Star commercial dishwashers must meet maximum water consumption requirements and utilize less energy while idling between wash cycles. Some manufacturers even utilize the clean rinse water from the previous cycle as the new wash water for the next cycle, dramatically reducing the amount of water used for each load of dishes.
