Do I need a commercial warewasher?

Dishwashers and glass washers (called warewashers) made for commercial use typically have a much shorter cycle time than domestic units and this means large volumes of crockery can be cleaned quickly and efficiently.

Initial Considerations for your commercial warewasher

The number of different model and features can be a bit mind-boggling, so there are several things you should consider before you start looking for the right model:

Turnover - When choosing between commercial or domestic, it’s worth thinking about the number ofcovers each night and how quickly the crockery needs to be cleaned. In a high-volume catering environment, for example, you may be doing several sittings a night, where smaller restaurants may only turn over one.

Space - Where your warewasher will sit is a key consideration. In a bar your glasswasher is a necessity and its permanent location is vital. The location of a dishwasher in the washing area is also important. Although it needs to be in an accessible place, you need to make sure it does not get in the way.

DurationThe choice of dishwasher may be chosen on its cycle length. Domestic dishwashers can take from 45 minutes for a standard cycle, commercial dishwashers can take as little as 60 seconds. Pass through dishwashers usually have the quickest of cycle times.
