    Can I wash other items in glasswashers (eg, cups and saucers)?

    Yes other items such as plates, cups and saucers can be washed in glasswashers. Rhima glasswashers use the same washing technology as our larger dishwashers. You can wash cups, saucers and lightly soiled plates. It is not recommended to wash dinnerplates. If your glasswasher has been set up with our High Sparkle system then we recommend use for glasses only.

    The Optima range has a clean cycle which means the rinse water is saved for the next wash which allows mixed loads.

    Why are commercial dishwashers so fast?

    There are a number of reasons why a commercial dishwasher is faster than a domestic dishwasher.

    The main reason is that domestic dishwashers are designed to clear the dirty dishes and wash up for a family setting of six persons and all items, dishes, bowls, cutlery etc are loaded at the same time. Clean up quickly and afterwards there is enough time for the machine to do its job. Ease of loading all dishes at once is more important than actual washing up time.

    A commercial dishwasher needs to turn the dishes around quickly, therefore quantity of dishes loaded is not as important a speed of loading and washing. To achieve this, dishes are spaced slightly more apart, only one layer/rack is washed at a time. One rack is loaded/unloaded while another is being washed. Often plates are washed separately from cups, glasses, cutlery etc to speed up the process.

    Chemicals are stronger. Pumps are more powerful. A commercial dishwasher is working in a commercial environment giving a constant clatter of dishes and audible pumps.

    How do I choose a commercial dishwasher / What is the best commercial dishwasher?

    The best commercial dishwasher is the one that suits your particular type of operation. If you have a wine bar or offer cellar door tastings, then a compact glasswasher would be ideal. If you are in an area with relatively hard or chlorinated water then you may want to add a high sparkle RO unit to improve final results.

    A small to medium sized coffee shop, reception area in a showroom, ice cream parlour,  a small office environment and you may want to consider a bar washer, which is a machine with slightly more power that a glass washer and would be capable of washing light plates, cups, saucers and glassware.

    If you are a food establishment serving light meals then the smallest machine that would suit is an under-bench dishwasher. These are available in various configurations. Small restaurants, office canteens, schools, ward kitchens and pantries where space is at a premium. Machines are also available with disinfection cycles for high risk areas such for gastro outbreaks as nursing homes, child care etc.

    If you have a larger establishment then a pass through dishwasher would be better suited. Pass through machines give a clear physical separation between soiled and clean items which is a good HACCP hygiene principle. Inlet benches can be fitted with sinks and overhead spray units (pre-rinse spray). Note that a pre-rinse spray should not be connected to hot water, first of all for safety reasons and secondly use tepid water to prevent soil baking on.

    Moving up from pass through dishwashers the next size would be a conveyor dishwasher. These are available in either a rack conveyor configuration where by dish racks are automatically transported through the various pre-wash, wash, rinse and dryer stages or as continuous conveyor dishwashers (so called flight type machines).
