Dishwashers & Warewashers

Washing dishes by hand is not only expensive and time-consuming, it wastes water and is far less effective at sanitizing tablewares than a dishwasher. If you’re thinking about purchasing a dishwasher, the hardest part will be choosing from myriad options.

Dishwashers can be divided into two types: high-temperature and low-temperature. As the name implies, high-temperature machines use extremely hot water for washing and scalding hot water (minimum of 180ºF) for rinsing. Low-temperature machines use cooler water (around 140ºF) and require the use of a chemical sanitizer. There are other important differences as well.

High-temperature units are usually more expensive to purchase and they also require a vent hood, which raises the initial price. High-temperature machines also use more energy. Low-temperature dishwashers are generally less expensive to purchase and install, and they use less energy, but they require a constant supply of sanitizing agents. Low-temperature machines may be a better choice for smaller establishments, particularly if the dishwasher is going to be used in close proximity to customers. However, the sanitizing agent is usually a solution of chlorine, iodine, or ammonium, all of which can be hard on the finishes of dishes and flatware. And you must use a sanitizing agent with a low-temperature machine to maintain proper food safety.

The size of your operation is also a consideration. Since high-temperature dishwashers do not require a separate sanitation cycle, they can wash more dishes in less time. High-temperature dishwashers are also better at removing grease and tough stains like lipstick. Although high-temperature dishwashers generally cost more on the front end, they will probably cost less to operate in the long run because they do not require the purchase of extra chemicals.
