Businesses in the hospitality industry rely on efficiency to get positive results and returns of investment. They rely on an ecosystem that business owners and managers keep on trying to perfect, in order to achieve the best returns. Although it would be interesting to discuss all the parts of the said ecosystem, it would take a whole book to explain everything, thus, we will be focusing on dishwashing this time around.
A fast, efficient and hygienic commercial dishwasher is a crucial piece of equipment in the hospitality industry no matter how busy an establishment is. From restaurants, cafes, bars, and other eateries; washing dishes, glasses, cutlery with speed and efficiency is key to success.

- Ease of use
In the game of speed and efficiency, you would want to just “set it and forget it”. Placing racks of dishes into the dishwasher and pressing a single button to get the same results every time provides great comfort to the staff. New staff members will never be caught scratching their heads after you’ve taught them how to use it once. So no need to fret when staff turnover is high.
Clean plates, glasses, and cutlery for your customers to use, no matter the time of day are paramount. Some restaurants may have sufficient surplus wares, but if your guests are waiting for your food to be served, and the chef has no available plates to serve their meals on, expect bad reviews. Nothing beats a lightning-quick commercial dishwasher in this regard.
- Hygiene and Sanitary Requirements
Imagine if a customer gets sick after eating at your restaurant, and after further investigation, the whole city finds out that the cause was dirty plates. Do you really want to keep fearing a visit from the health inspector?
Have you decided on buying a commercial dishwasher yet?
Here are some more things to consider before purchasing your dishwasher:
- Initial, Operating and Maintenance costs
Yes, the initial investment in purchasing a high-quality dishwasher is big. But the long-term returns make it worth it. Consider how many man hours and labor costs you reduce. Consider the consistency in the quality of cleanliness versus the manual method of washing dishes.
- Size and Capacity
When choosing a dishwasher, consider its capacity and capability to clean as many wares as your customers use in a service period. Remember that slowing down your service due to insufficient dishes means a loss of business.
Size is secondary to capacity but is important if you’ve already set up your kitchen before considering purchasing a dishwasher. There are multiple styles, combinations, and configurations available to suit whatever space you still have available, but remember to keep the capacity factor a priority. An under-counter dishwasher can do the same job as passing through the dishwasher if you know how to set up your ecosystem properly and polish your standard operating procedures well.
With your newly gained knowledge, you can now comfortably purchase a commercial dishwasher for your business, and get back to what is important. Running your business.
