In your busy restaurant kitchen, you probably use a commercial-grade dishwasher to keep your dishes, glasses, and silverware in peak condition. If you have issues with less-than-clean dishes coming out of your dishwasher, you may need to consider additional restaurant equipment to help improve dishwasher performance. The most effective option is utilizing a pre-rinse unit designed to thoroughly rinse plates before dishwashing. Here’s a look at how pre-rinsing your dishes can help you improve your kitchen’s efficiency.
1. Maximize Dishwasher Performance
Are you running your dishwasher several times to clean one load of dishes? Stuck-on food and grease can often withstand the heat and force of even the most effective commercial dishwashers. Pre-rinsing with a high-pressure pre-rinse unit can remove tougher stains and crumbs, making your dishwasher more effective and reducing the number of washes necessary.
2. Quicker Kitchen Service
Although your cooks and chefs can turn around meals in a matter of minutes, they need to have plates and silverware to serve them with. Pre-rinsing can help the entire restaurant move much more efficiently by getting dishes in and out of your kitchen as fast as possible.
3. Greater Water and Energy Efficiency
Finally, pre-rinsing can help you save water and energy in your kitchen by minimizing the resources necessary to get your dishes clean. Although your dishwasher may claim to be “high efficiency,” it loses this advantage when you have to wash dishes several times to get them clean. Pre-rinsing with a high-quality pre-rinse unit can help you reduce water and energy consumption by making sure your dishes are clean after the very first cycle.
